Everyone agrees that there is a shortage of Data Scientists. If not addressed soon, Big Data breakthroughs in areas such as healthcare, renewable energy, public sector, etc will decelerate. I am proud to say that EMC is doing its part to solve the problem by fostering Data Science development with training and certification, hands on expertise, web events, internships, and more. For example, EMC Education Services offers a 5-day Data Science and Big Data Analytics training and certification, designed to enable immediate and effective participation in big data and other analytics projects.
As a Big Data citizen, I want to motivate those thinking about moving into the world of Data Science, to take action and get trained. I met with Barry Heller, a developer for EMC’s Data Science curriculum, who leverages his extensive education and past experience as an EMC Data Scientist for curriculum development. If Barry’s story resonates and you relate in some way, I hope it inspires you to start a career in Data Science.
