Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is big data and mainly constitutes the unstructured data. This Big Data offers challenge in term of storage and further analysis in rest of in real time. One can dig gold mine if we are able to make sense out of big data.

In a global and highly interconnected world we live in, the one greatest power is the right information. Data Science, Big Data and Business Analytics is thus the primary tool for any organisation, society, Govt. to seek for competitive advantage and optimisation of the existing ecosystem. A career in Business Analytics, Big Data and Data Science promise a lot of challenge, opportunity, and reward.

Modern Data Scientists are Supermen with Crystal Ball

Data Scientists are super men who tell stories out of the data, respective of the size of data: big or small. They answer questions like what’s happening. What will happen? What we should do now? These are commonly termed as BI, Predictive analytics and Prescriptive Analytics. They use statistics, Machine learning, NLP, R, Python, Hadoop, Spark to create Crystal Ball to predict future, solve business problem or find out the missing opportunities. Snapdeal, which has over 20 million subscribers and generates terabytes of data through the interactions that happen with customers in addition to a catalogue of over 5 million, churns 15 million data points (related data set like a consumer shopping on specific days for a particular thing) within two hours, using Hadoop. About 35% of its orders come from recommendation and personalized systems, and the conversion rate of such orders is 20-30% higher than normal orders, the company claims.
