    Capstone Project:

    Description: You’ll go through dedicated mentor classes to generate a high-quality industry project where you solve a real-world problem by leveraging the skills and technologies that you learned throughout the program. The capstone project includes all the key points of data extraction, cleaning, and visualization, and how to build and tune models. You can also choose the domain/industry dataset you want to work on, based on whatever options are available.

    After you successfully submit your project, you will earn a capstone certificate, showcasing your expanded learning and skills to potential employers.

    Project 1: Products rating prediction for Amazon

    Domain: E-commerce

    Amazon, one of the leading US-based e-commerce companies, usually recommends products to customers that fall in a similar category that jibes with their activity and reviews. Amazon would like to boost this recommendation engine by increasing its capabilities, letting it predict ratings for non-rated products and adding them accordingly to the customer’s recommendations.

    Project 2: Improving customer experience for Comcast

    Domain: Telecom

    Description: Comcast, one of the top US-based global telecommunication companies, wants to improve their customer service experience by spotting problem areas that decrease customer satisfaction, and come up with a plan on how to address these issues. The company is also looking for key recommendations that they can put in place to provide the best customer experience.

    Project 3: Attrition Analysis for IBM

    Domain: Workforce Analytics

    Description: IBM, one of the oldest and most popular US-based IT companies, wants you to pinpoint the factors that affect employee attrition. Based on the parameters identified, the company also would like to build a logistics regression model that forecasts employee churn rate.

    Project 4: Predict accurate sales for 45 Walmart stores, taking the impact of promotional markdown events into consideration. Walmart is one of America’s leading retail stores. Determine if macroeconomic factors like the Consumer Price Index, unemployment rate, etc., impact their sales.

    Domain: Retail

    Description: Walmart holds several promotional markdown events throughout the year. These markdowns typically precede popular holidays and annual events like the Super Bowl, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and, naturally, Christmas. The weeks where these holidays occur have a weighing factor five times higher in valuation than regular weeks. The company, however, is facing a challenge due to unanticipated demand, a situation made worse by incorrect demand estimation. This results in occasional stock shortfalls. Macroeconomic factors such as CPI, Unemployment Index, etc. can potentially play an important role in predicting demand. However, the company hasn’t yet managed to leverage these factors. A portion of this project involves creating a model to call out the effects of these promotional markdowns on holiday weeks.

    Project 5: Learn how the top healthcare industry leaders make use of Data Science to improve their business.

    Domain: HealthCare

    Description: Predictive analytics is a useful tool in many different aspects of healthcare, like mediating hospital readmissions. But no matter what the industry, predictors are most valuable when they’re actionable. Or, put another way, historical and real-time data alone are useless unless the company makes a move. More importantly, in order to ascertain the value and effectiveness of forecasting a trend and ultimately changing the behavior, you must be able to incorporate both the predictor and the intervention back into the same workflow and system where the trend originally started.

    Project 6: Understand how Insurance leaders like AIG, AXA, Berkshire Hathaway, etc., use Data Science by working on an insurance-based real-life project in this data science course in Sarasota

    Domain: Insurance

    Description: According to information in the 2013 Insurance Predictive Modeling Survey, predictive analytics has risen sharply in the insurance industry, particularly in the biggest companies. For example, the survey shows a predictive modeling boost across the industry, but there are disparities. In fact, every insurance company that writes more than $1 billion in personal insurance uses predictive modeling, while companies who deal with less than that amount hover in the 69% utilization range.

    Project 7: See how large banks like Bank of America, Citigroup, ICICI, HDFC, etc. use Data Science to stay ahead of the competition.

    Domain: Banking

    Description: A Portuguese banking institution held a marketing campaign to give prospective customers a good reason to invest in a bank term deposit. The bank used phone calls to conduct their marketing campaigns. However, sometimes the same customer got repeated calls, resulting in duplication of effort. Your job is to analyze all the data gathered from this banking marketing campaign.

    Project 8: Learn how stock markets like NASDAQ, NSE, and BSE leverage Data Science and Analytics to derive consumable data from complex data sets in this data science training in Sarasota.

    Domain: Stock Market

    Description: You must import data from the following companies, using the Yahoo data reader: Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, x and Yahoo. Using the data available, you'll do fundamental analytical functions - (daily) return analysis, multiple plots on closing price, stock trade volumes and stock correlations.

    Project 9: Understand how Data Science is used in the field of engineering by engaging in this case study of MovieLens Dataset Analysis.

    Domain: Engineering

    Description: The GroupLens Research Project is a research group based at the University of Minnesota’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The researchers there are involved in several projects related to collaborative filtering, information filtering, and recommender systems.

    Project 10: See how top retail companies like Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. utilize Data Science to analyze and optimize their product placements and stock inventory.

    Domain: Retail

    Description: Companies use Analytics to optimize product shelf placement in their stores or the inventory in their warehouses.

  • What is Data Science?

    Data science is a broad field that involves dealing with large volumes of data to uncover hidden trends and patterns and extract valuable information that aids in better decision-making. As companies are collecting massive amounts of data, they use various data science tools and techniques to build predictive models. Simplilearn’s Data Science training can help you learn all of its concepts from scratch.

  • Who is a Data Scientist?

    A Data Scientist is an individual who gathers, cleans, analyzes, and visualizes large datasets to draw meaningful conclusions and communicate them to the business leaders. The data is collected from various sources, processed into a format suitable for analysis, and fed into an analytics system where a statistical analysis is performed to gain actionable insights.

  • What does a Data Scientist do?

    Data scientists are responsible for analyzing large amounts of data, visualizing them to find hidden trends and patterns, and drawing meaningful insights. Such actionable insights aid in solving complex business problems and making better decisions. They apply data science techniques like exploratory data analysis, statistical modeling, and machine learning to uncover hidden correlations in data. This Data Science course can help you become capable of handling all these responsibilities.

  • Why Get Certified as a Data Scientist?

    A question that I often hear from clients and colleagues is, "Why should I get a Data Science certification?" That is a fair question for most other areas of study and business. In areas such as finance or engineering, there are far more important accreditations you could and should achieve before “hanging your shingle” or trying to retool your skill set or career.

     

    Data science is a broad discipline with a few accredited cetification programs. However, many of those programs are cost-prohibitive. 

     

    “There are at least 50 Data Science certification programs by universities worldwide offering degree and diplomas in this discipline,” writes data science blogger, Zeeshan Usman. “It costs from $50,000 to $270,000 and takes one to four years of your life.”

     

    And although somewhat new in the nomenclature, data science encompasses many skills that professionals may already have acquired through work or educational experience such as:

     

    • Programming
    • Statistics and statistical modeling: Descriptive, diagnostic, inferential, predictive, prescriptive
    • Data visualization: Box plots, scatter plots, and more
    • Machine Learning and modeling: Regression classification, clustering, and more.
       

    Data scientists also need to have an understanding of and exposure to reproducibility, decision-making, and working with stakeholders and executives. So attaining a second (or third) degree may not be the best option for professionals looking to break into data science. Yet to be successful, they still need to communicate their experience, skills, and acquired knowledge to prospective employers.
     

    A Fresh Perspective 


    Put yourself in the position of a hiring manager; say her name is Paula. Paula has a couple of full-time openings for a Data Scientist. She has done a lot of research and has decided to hire at an entry-level. The person she hires will need to work with her and her staff of data scientists, business analysts, data analysts, and business intelligence developers.

     

    She has a stack of resumes to read through and she has several questions that need to be answered before she decides to set up phone interviews. However, Paula knows that curriculum vitae (CV) often do not align with the skills and experience needed for a Data Scientist position. She may see many CVs from college graduates, she may see many resumes from men and women with several years of work experience but without any practical data science experience. But since this is an entry-level position, she will likely not see any applicants with real knowledge in the field of data science.

     

    So what should Paula focus on? How should she shortlist applicants for the phone interview? How can Paula know which of the applicants has a real, proven commitment to becoming a Data Scientist? She may very well focus on the resumes that list Data Science certifications along with any pertinent business experience! And if those certification programs have compulsory projects to complete, that’s even better. You can begin to build your portfolio of data science projects before ever landing a job. 

     

    Data science is a fast-growing field. According to an article by Forbes, IBM predicts the demand for data scientists will grow by over 25 percent by 2020.  Budding Data Scientists need to get their resumes and CVs out there as soon as is practicable, but they still need to gain valuable experience with those data science skills mentioned above.  Data Science certifications are the quickest way to learn and hone the skills and techniques necessary to land that first data science job.

     

    Furthermore, Data Science certifications allow students to learn and hone skills that won’t normally be acquired through work experiences, such as exploratory analysis skills, visualization skills, and data mining/machine learning algorithms.

     

    So get your certifications in R, Python, and SQL. Or learn Hadoop or Apache Spark. Take some statistics courses. Practice everything you learn, every day.
