Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. has released a guide to data science intended to help organizations turn big data into assets.
The Field Guide to Data Science features best practices on how data science works, establishing the data science team, integrating principles and models into data science strategies, handling and analyzing data and case studies, Booz Allen Hamilton said Wednesday.
Booz Allen intends for the manual to help companies gain business insights into the data science and leverage that data in order to generate revenues and achieve goals.
“Our hope is that The Field Guide to Data Science will serve as a resource to help pioneer the data science community as the field continues to evolve and grow, particularly at the university level where data science degrees will soon be the norm,” said Joshua Sullivan, Booz Allen Hamilton vice president and data scientist.
“We also realize that there is enormous potential to tap into the data science community and provide them with the opportunity to contribute and create an industry wide set of best practices,” he added.
