Businesses in nearly every industry are being transformed by a massive explosion of data, intelligence from machine learning and advanced analytics. This is largely due to the huge increase in cloud computing.

But how do we make sense of all this data and put it to good use? Data Analytics and Data Science of course. Data science is a very specific set of activities - and skills - that businesses can leverage to their advantage. While it’s not wrong to see data science as a real game changer for business, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do well.

But what is data science exactly? Quite simply, it’s about using data to solve business problems, some of which can be quite large in scope. But here are some examples:

  • Improving customer retention by finding out what the triggers of churn might be
  • Improving internal product development processes by looking at points where faults are most likely to happen
  • Targeting customers with the right sales messages at the right time
  • Informing product development by looking at how people use your products
  • Analysing customer sentiment on social media
  • Financial modelling

As you can see data science is a field that can impact every department. From marketing to product management to finance, data science isn’t just a buzzword, it’s a shift in mindset about how we work.

Once you’ve understood that data science is really about solving business problems you’re on the right track. Too often businesses want machine learning, big data projects without thinking about what they’re really trying to do. If you want your data scientists to be successful, present them with the problems - let them create the solutions.
