Data Science knowledge exists in silos & people from different domains or geographies facing similar analytics issues, have no avenue to interact and share their knowledge. With Analytics Vidhya Discuss, we aim to break these silos & learn from each other
(PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Analytics Vidhya, one of the fastest growing Analytics and Data Science Community across the globe, launched their online discussions platform recently. While analytics landscape, tools and technologies have been evolving quickly, there is no single place for data science professionals to interact with each other, discuss their problems, exchange ideas and find solutions to common problems quickly. Analytics Vidhya Discuss aims to become that one place for data science and big data professionals across the globe.
"When working with some of the top MNCs, we missed a place to share industry best practices and interact with other people in the industry. Data Science knowledge exists in silos and people from different domains or geographies facing similar analytics issues, had no avenue to interact and share their knowledge. With Analytics Vidhya Discuss, we aim to break these silos and learn from each other, taking the learning process to a completely different level." said Kunal Jain, CEO, Analytics Vidhya.
According to industry estimates, the data produced across the globe has more than doubled in the last 2 years. On the other hand, a study conducted by McKinsey in 2011, expects a shortage of 1.5 million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data in the US alone. With data becoming the basis of all business decisions today and the shortage of human resources, it is imperative to collaborate and share as much knowledge. The Analytics Vidhya Discuss platform, enables just that!
