New Research Proves Increased Awareness in the Value of Open Data Science, but Enterprises are Slow to Respond

New research announced by Continuum Analytics, the creator and driving force behind Anaconda, a leading Open Data Science platform powered by Python, finds that 96 percent of data science and analytics decision makers agree that data science is critical to the success of their business, yet a whopping 22 percent are failing to make full use of the data available. These findings are included in Continuum Analytics’ new eBook, Winning at Data Science: How Teamwork Leads to Victory.

Winning at Data Science: How Teamwork Leads to Victory

Big Data … best defined as extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends and associations, in everything  ranging from human behavior to scientific research to sensor data, has grown exponentially since the early 1990s. The increase in Big Data collection  has forced enterprises to capitalize on these massive data […]

Open Source Tools for Enterprise Data Science

Learn about open source tools for enterprise data science by downloading the new white paper, “DataScience Trends Report: Open Source Tools for Enterprise Data Science” by DataScience, Inc. The white paper looks at activity data from the most popular GitHub repositories to identify trends in data visualization tools, deep learning libraries, and open source licensing using the interactive DataScience Trends tool.

Open Source Tools for Enterprise Data Science

Proprietary solutions, once the mainstay of enterprise data science, are now being eclipsed by open source projects like R, Spark, and TensorFlow. There are several reasons for this trend: Open source tools offer endless opportunities for collaboration and contribution, and many have been built out to the point that they provide very real value, even at […]

Should You Use Python or R for Your Programming Language?

In this contributed article, technology writer and blogger Kayla Matthews discusses the age-old “R vs. Python” debate that has circulated around in the data science community for the past few years. “When it comes to choosing a programming language, there really are only two choices if you’re working with data. For data science, machine learning, statistics, IoT technology and even automation, the two best languages to use are Python and R.”

How Data Science Can Help You Not to be Blindsided in Decision-Making

Quantifying Data Science

Our friends over at The Data Incubator just released a new series of data-driven ranking reports that showcase the quantitative methodologies the data science fellowship, hiring and training company uses to actively teach their fellows. The idea was to develop a more data-driven approach to what the company should be teaching in their data science corporate training and their free fellowship for masters and PhDs looking to enter data science careers in industry.

Ranked: 15 Python packages for Data Science

At The Data Incubator we pride ourselves on having the latest data science curriculum. Much of our course material is based on feedback from corporate and government partners about the technologies they are looking to learn. This report is the second in a series analyzing data science related topics. We thought it would be useful to the data science community to rank and analyze a variety of topics related to the profession in a simple, easy to digest cheat sheet, ranking, or report. It’s our way of practicing what we teach.
