Data Science is an emerging field using new technologies and frameworks. With several industries now basing business and operational decisions on the information culled from data, there is a growing need for data practitioners. While there are a number of small companies employing data practitioners to help industries mine and analyze their data for its optimal potential, there is still a huge gap in on the enterprise side. 

This seminar will explore the day in the life of a data scientist. Our panelists will provide a glimpse into the strategies and tools they utilize for various parts of the big data stack including advanced analytics, data discovery, and data mining. 

Take-aways from this seminar will include:
  • What are practitioners doing in the trenches?
  • What are the skill-sets needed to become a data practitioner?
  • Where do the practitioners see the optimal value of the data?
  
Who should attend:  Software companies, analytics companies, healthcare, financial – Senior business and operational executives, CIOs and senior IT managers, CMOs 
 

The seminar will be followed by a planning meeting to discuss MassTLC's Big Data programming for 2012.  Please join us and share your thoughts and suggestions for upcoming programs and events. This planning meeting is for MassTLC members only.
