Data Science and Database Management

by lawlin In reply to What is data science

Data Science, in short, is the process of making meaning out of unstructured data. To this end, data scientists first try to structure unstructured data. The ultimate task, of course, is to create a credible, comprehensive database. Once a database has been created, scientists constantly monitor, manage, and update it. Data management, therefore, is an essential aspect of data science (Source:

Notably, it involves statistics and machine learning also.

Data Science Empowers Businesses

by davidharperint In reply to What is data science

Data science helps to analyze the future by doing machine learning of data, predictive analytics, and what-if analysis. Data Science helps to dig deep into a variety of insights.

Businesses explore ways to process their data to bring out unknown causative factors and also see how do they affect the future. A data scientist needs easy access to data and transformation tools, and business users need more straightforward access to machine learning tools, predictions, and be able to perform what-if analysis by themselves.
