Data is Everywhere

More than 2.7 zettabytes of data exist in today’s digital universe and that is projected to grow to 180 zettabytes in 2025.Data Science, also known as data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. Data Science is a field that encompasses anything related to data acquisition, data cleansing & transformation, preparation, and model building and analysis.

Data science is the structured approach to the extraction of intelligence from data. Data science combines techniques from disciplines such as statistics, computer science, operations research and many others to derive insight from data. Increases in computing power and the development of techniques to combine and analyse large and complex datasets have vastly improved the quality of insight that can be drawn from data. In a business context, this has enabled companies to develop a richer understanding of their customers’ behaviour, improve their production operations and build more accurate models of demand and capacity. Data science continues to improve organisations’ ability to plan for the future by providing a more solid foundation upon which to base their decisions.

Analytics / Data Science industry in India

There are some studies that believe that the Analytics/ Data Science industry in India is at a phase where IT was some 10-15 years ago and thus a boom can be expected in analytics outsourcing to India. Hence, Data Science has a great scope in India.

NASSCOM pegs revenues from data science and AI (IT and non-IT industries) in the country at $16 billion by 2025, providing jobs to 1.50 lakh professionals. The expertise in Data Science is not be high in India (except some pockets), and therefore there is a strong reason to form a Society of Data Science.
