Data Science is an interdisciplinary subject
employing concepts and techniques from
mathematics, statistics, computer science
and economics.
It is used to identify patterns and regularities in
data, affecting all aspects of work and society
from medicine to marketing to scientific
research.
Who is a Data Scientist?
A data scientist is someone who is
better at statistics than most
software engineers and better at
software engineering than most
statisticians
Who is a Data Scientist?
A Data Scientist is a professional
with the training and curiosity to
make discoveries while swimming in
an ocean of data; communicating
what they learn and suggesting its
implications for new decisions.
Who is a Data Scientist?
They identify and combine rich and potentially
incomplete data sources, and bring structure to
large quantities of formless data, making
analysis possible.
They engage decision makers in an ongoing

Demand for Data Scientists
Demand for Data Scientists
There is a growing demand for data-savvy
professionals in businesses, public agencies,
and nonprofits.
There is a limited supply of professionals who
can efficiently work with data at scale.
Thus, the salaries for data engineers, data
scientists, statisticians, and data analysts
have increased rapidly.
A recent study by the McKinsey Global
Institute estimates that there will be four to
five million jobs in the U.S. requiring data
analysis skills by 2018, and that large numbers
of positions will only be filled through training
or retraining.
In a survey of 816 data professionals in 53
countries, O’Reilly Media report a median
annual salary for Data Science professionals
as $98,000.
SQL, R, Python and Excel are the top earning
skills.
Data Science in India
According to a survey by Gartner
★ In 2013, the Data Analytics market in India
was $1.6 Billion with a growth rate of 8%
★ By 2018, the market is projected to be $3.7
Billion
"For the fourth year in a row, analytics ranks as the No.
1 priority in Gartner's CIO [India] Survey." Bhavish Sood,
research director at Gartner explains.
India is one of the strongest countries in the Data
Science marketplace that boasts of clients including
Facebook, GE, NASA, Tesco and Merck. It can
potentially build a talent pipeline for data scientists that
are virtually non-existent today.
India will need 200,000 data scientists in the next few
years. A single company, Wipro, already has as many as
8,000 people in analytics functions.
Data Science in India
The median annual salary for a Data Scientists in
India is Rs 670,665
The highest paying skills are
Python, Machine Learning,
Statistical Analysis, Big Data
Analytics, and R.
Bengal Chamber proposes smart and
green city for business analytics firms
The Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry has
taken an initiative to set up a smart city for business
analytics in West Bengal.
The project would involve service providers like KPMG
Advisory Services and PricewaterhouseCoopers,
corporate consumers, education institutions such as
Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, the Indian
Statistical Institute, and the Indian Institute of
Management, Calcutta.
How can you be a Data Scientist?
A Master’s degree is a natural route to be a Data
Scientist.
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) give access to
self-learning at a low cost (often free), but leave it to the
student to identify a suitable set of courses and tools to
round out a coherent skill set.
Bootcamps offer students a practical and structured
learning environment at a far more affordable rate
compared with obtaining a Master’s Degree.
