SAP Big Data Chat: The Data Scientist

Last month, I hosted a “Big Data Hangout” featuring SAP’s Shekhar Iyer, Global VP Analytics & Big Data and David Ginsberg, Chief Data Scientist.

The hour-long discussion covered different topics about data science and data scientists, including questions from the audience:

  • What is a data scientist and what do they do?
  • Why now?
  • What kinds of business challenges does Data Science address?
  • Example use cases
  • What kinds of skills are needed?
  • What SAP technologies are we talking about?
  • Typical barriers to success?
  • What’s going to happen in the future?

You can find out more about SAP’s Data Science at – including the Data Science services available through David Ginsberg’s team
