This number is definitely one of the highest pay as compared to any other job roles in any sector.

Let us learn about the various steps involved in data science Understand the business problem

The first and foremost step involved in the process of data science is understanding the business problem and determine the objectives of the specific business. Once a data scientist understands the problem, he makes a plan considering the objectives that need to be achieved.

Data Collection

Since data science is all about data, a data scientist is required to collect some sort of relevant data from all possible ways using different tools and techniques. Because of the immense data available on the web, data scientists gather data by using several quantitative data collection methods applying the mathematical concepts in several formats such as questionaries, applying methods of correlation and regression, mean, mode, median and many more. Data scientists also collect data by using qualitative research methods such as case studies, observations, role playing, etc.

Data storing

Even as you gather a huge amount of data, you do not use each and every bit of it for solving the specific business problem. Hence data storing needs to be performed. This process refers to cleaning the data by screening -useful data to perform operations and derive meaningful insights.

Data Transformation

After segregating the data, a data scientist converts the data from one format to another to perform specific operations and derive the expected outcomes. This process includes various approaches like data integration, data warehousing, data wrangling and many more.

Data Modeling

Many operations such as bootstrapping, cross validation, subset selection etc will be employed on the segregated data to retrieve the desired solutions. This process consumes a lot of time to perform several operations and derive the needful findings from the huge data sets.


Once the model is finalized, it is to be tested in the pre-production environment to analyze its efficiency and detect any existing errors.

Data deployment

Once the phase of testing ends, it is deployed to the client to solve the defined problem and achieve the goals determined. Application of different data visualization tools such as Tableau, Highcharts, Datawrapper, Sisense, Fusioncharts etc makes it easy to understand the model.

What are the several applications of data science in various fields?

Even as data science has got a wide range of applications, different sectors employ the techniques of data science to serve different purposes. The following are the few of the major applications of data science which we encounter the benefits on a daily basis.

Price comparison

Data science helps the users to get a product at the best price by using the price comparison websites. Data science helps to attain the data from all websites where the particular product is displayed and empowers the user to crack the best deal.


One of the major application areas of data science is the Airline industry as it helps them discover the best strategic plans to improve their services. Data science in airlines helps in predicting the accurate time of arrival, delay of flight, determine the destination and halt locations etc which makes the customers enjoy a better travel experience.

Fraud detections

One of the important applications of data science is fraud detection. Almost every sector has encountered fraudulent activities in some or the other way. It is a necessity for every sector and every organization to prevent fraudulent activities and protect their business from encountering huge losses. Data science helped many industries to discover the safest platforms, routes, modes of transports etc and enhance safety to their businesses. Thus, Data science also helps them reduce the cost and risks involved by completely eradicating fraudulent activities. This technique is majorly employed in fields like banking, finance, e-commerce etc where financial means is involved.
