Last updated on May 22,2019 13.1K Views

Being a data scientist isn’t just about the “data,” or being a “scientist.” As Tom Davenport, visiting professor at Harvard University and author of Competing on Analytics put it, a true data scientist is one who uses his or her imagination to look at information in a different way.

We are already aware of how big Big Data is and how it will be the next ‘big thing’. Data Scientist job has been named the sexiest job of 21st century. So, let’s cut to the chase and talk about what makes it a sexy job.

According to Anuj Bhambhri, VP of Big Data Products, IBM, “A Data Scientist is somebody who is inquisitive, who can stare at data and spot trends. It’s almost like a Renaissance individual who really wants to learn and bring change to an organization”.

So, Data Scientists are people who can understand and provide meaning to the loads and piles of data that companies collect. And, if you are looking into a career as data scientist, you will soon be one of the most sought after in the industry.

There is a misconception that Data Scientist is a single job. In fact, there are different types of Data Scientists and different job titles that go with the role played by them.  Each job title handles the role of handling data in a different manner. To get in-depth knowledge on Data Science, you can enroll for live Data Science Certification Training by Edureka with 24/7 support and lifetime access.
