Cash registers, websites, patients, employees, customers, students, machines, warehouses and nearly every other aspect of the modern business world generate enormous amounts of data. Hiding within these ever-increasing mountains of data are patterns that can optimize nearly every business decision. Knowing how to find and leverage these patterns is a skill set that is in high demand and will remain there indefinitely. Data science and machine learning are the core components used to understand, transform, model and execute on those data patterns.
