Data Scientist: The most sought after job of the modern world

Data science is everywhere. A recent Forbes magazine article declares that data analysis is 'the century's hottest career’ – we have strong evidence all around us to even support this claim. Data Science is a rapidly evolving and exciting field. Enterprises today have access to a plethora of data collected from various customer touch points including websites, apps, social media, blogs and more. But data gathering alone isn't nearly enough to drive a positive impact on business. The value of data science lies in the journey towards achieving three significant types of results: discovery, insights, and innovation. This is where great scientists shine.
