Data science and cloud computing essentially go hand in hand. A Data Scientist typically analyzes different types of data that are stored in the Cloud. With the increase in Big Data, Organizations are increasingly storing large sets of data online and there is a need for Data Scientists.
Let us look at the types of data that a data scientist is likely to work in the cloud:
Look at structured, semi-structured and unstructured dataLook at varied sets of data, irrespective of the size, format, etc.Analyse them to draw insights
However, the problem with such data is, it often sits in disparate silos. Given that the storage is now much cheaper, and the open source platforms and tools are available for data scientists, cloud is the key.
