Achieving Business Success with Data
Several organizations are adapting to the new wave of technologies such as
automation, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and
Machine Learning (ML). However, the success in its adoption will be seen only
when they get data management right. A proportionate growth to explore data
is crucial as raw data cannot transform businesses.
Data cannot be a competitive differentiator, unless and until it creates an
impact on customer experience, operational efficiency, product improvement,
and revenue streams. Poor data may lead to a loss of USD 9.7 million per
annum, Gartner reports. Along with financial loss, businesses can see missed
opportunities, higher-risk decision-making, and loss of reputation.
“If we don’t get data right, we may not even realize it until it’s too late.”
-Anthony Scriffignano, Chief Data Scientist, Dun & Bradstreet
Needless to say, data science plays a key role in extracting value from data –
structured, semi-structured, or unstructured.
Definition of data science from Techopedia: “Data science is the field of
study that refers to the collective processes, theories, concepts, tools, and
technologies that enable the review, analysis, and extraction of knowledge
and information from raw data.”
The interdisciplinary field of data science includes Machine Learning
algorithms, Predictive Analysis, Statistics, Computer Science, Inference, and
new technologies. Let’s understand the business value of data science in
detail.
The business value of data science
Data science enables businesses to measure, track, and record performance
metrics. It allows organizations to combine existing data with other data
points, identify the target audiences, and arrive at useful insights. Studies
suggest that the global data science market will grow to USD 115 billion by
2023. Take a look at the business benefits, data science can bring. Data
science helps:
 Physicians to analyze data from wearables and ensure their
patients’ well-being
 E-commerce players to improve customer experience and
retention
 Banking and financial services to detect frauds and provide
personalized financial advice
 Transportation providers to improve the transportation journeys of
customers
 Construction companies to make better decisions while tracking
activities
 To interpret seismic graphs and characterize reservoirs by
analyzing graphic data, temporal data, and geospatial data
 To leverage social media content and obtain real-time consumer
patterns
 To study utility consumption in the energy and utility domain
In brief, data science brings value to several industry verticals.
Moving forward, let’s understand the processes and tools in data science.
Raw data is like crude oil, precious to business, but needs transformation to
derive value. You can have an integrated view of business operations only
when data gets lined up in a specific format.
Data transformation process
To turn data into business value, it is important to understand how you can
use the available data and compensate for missing data. It is essential to
deduce and fill out the missing data. In this effort, you may have to sync
different sets of data too. It’s not as simple as collecting it. Interpretation of
collected data helps to see the real results. The data transformation steps are
briefed as follows.
Data containing personally identifiable information can be encrypted further.
Some of the tools used include:
There are certain foundational positions important to extract the full business
value of data. Resorting to cloud services is one that facilitates organizations
to deliver new capabilities with their existing skill sets. Take a look at the
survey conducted by Harvard Business Review – Analytics Services.
Having said this, did you ever wonder, who are doing this for an organization?
They are these data science warriors!
The data science warriors
Behind the scene, there operates a big team of data science comprising data
scientists, data analysts, and data engineers, among others. Get introduced to
them.
Data scientist
A data scientist is mainly responsible for collecting, analyzing, and
interpreting humongous data. They are primarily involved in
 Designing and building new data set processes
 Determining ways to improve data and search quality
 Developing prototypes, proof of concepts, algorithms, and custom
analysis
Data analyst
A data analyst acquires information for specified topics or domains. They are
actively involved in
 Collecting customer requirements
 Determining technical issues
 Identifying new data sources and methods
 Improving data collection methods
 Reporting data to meet customer requirements
Big data engineers
A data engineer develops and translates computer algorithms into prototype
code. They are actively involved in
 Developing technical solutions to improve data access
 Identifying, organizing, and maintaining trends in large datasets
 Aggregating and analyzing data sets for actionable insights
 Developing tools and reports as per business case
Core skills of a data science team
Each one of the team members has a specific role to play. You can distinguish
the skills of a data analyst, data engineer and data scientist in our previous
blogs. The core skills of a data science team are listed here.
 Programming skills
 Statistics
 Multivariable calculus
 Linear algebra
 Data wrangling
 Data visualization
 Machine learning
 Communication skills
Acquiring data science skills
If you are looking for a rewarding data science career, then get acquainted
with the necessary skills. Most universities today are offering graduate
programs in data science and its related skills for young graduates. If you are
a young professional, then opting for data science certifications would be the
right choice so that you can continue earning while you learn. It will not break
your career journey.
Choose the best data science certifications available in the market. Conduct
market research thoroughly about the job description and skills necessary for
those specified positions and choose your data science certification that helps
you learn those skills. Every industry demands a certain level of expertise and
refines your professional portfolio accordingly.
Key takeaways
 To evolve and thrive in the digital economy, it is imperative to
derive value from data faster.
 Organizations must build end-to-end data science workflows to
meet their specific challenges, and stay ahead of the competition.
 A perfect data science team with augmented intelligence will
enable an organization to create new and disruptive business
models, and deliver exceptional customer experiences.
