Data Science

Data science is the multidisciplinary area of knowledge that extracts insights from usually large volumes of either structured, unstructured or hybrid data, using tools and theories from fields such as computer and information science, Artificial Intelligence (AI) development and machine learning, mathematics or statistics. Data scientists have become a fundamental part of business development and strategy through data-driven decision making, analyzing large volumes of data from diverse datasets that provide intelligence on key business issues such as user behavior or market patterns.


The combination of the terms “development” and “operations”, DevOps is a software development methodology based on the integration between software developers and systems administrators.
