Introduction


With the exponential growth of Data available, organizations across the globe are excited by the prospect of “Data lead – Insights driven- decision making” complementary to traditional knowledge-driven decision-making process. It is very much evident from the fact that Social media and software product giants like, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, LinkedIn and many other Fortune-500 organizations are already making huge investments in large scale data analytics to help them exploit the power of extracting wisdom (useful insights) from the massive raw data being generated at a very high pace in today’s world.

Students who come out of school education can shape their career through this specialization and opportunities are innumerable. After globalization, career evangelists have come up with a new term called “Data Era”, as data is getting generated in really huge volumes and much faster pace than the previous years. So, making sense out of this data and driving organizational decisions based on this huge volume of data eventually paves way for the new age career option in data science.

Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, told Business Insider. “It’s one of the hottest and fastest growing jobs we’re seeing right now.”
