These days we produce an enormous amount of data. According to Wil van der Aalst, Professor of Information Systems at Eindhoven University of Technology, we produce as much data in ten minutes as we did in the period from prehistory to 2003. Unbelievable, isn’t it? Various techniques make it easier to collect data, but this also makes it harder to find valuable information from this gigantic data set. Does this happen in your company too? Then you could probably use a Data Scientist.

The benefits of Data Science within your company

Data Science is extracting the right, relevant information from a large amount of data. Analyzing data requires expertise. Data Scientists have knowledge of business, statistics and generally have programming experience. The models used in data analysis are complex, but the practical applications are concrete. The analyses created by a Data Scientist help companies operate more efficiently and learn more about customers.

Other practical applications of business analytics/Data Science include:

  • More efficient processes within the company
  • Better allocation of budgets
  • Higher customer satisfaction
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Better content

The word Data Science

The term Data Science is actually quite a broad term as well. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Deep learning and so on all mean something different. Nevertheless, they are often grouped together under the term Data Science. Despite the fact that data is the basis for all concepts, they use different forms of data analysis. So think beforehand about what you need help with when looking for a Data Scientist.
