DATA SCIENCE FAQS

WHAT IS DATA SCIENCE?

Data science combines programming skills, mathematics and statistics to gather, structure and extract insights from data. Data scientist can use any number of tools, such as programming languages or databases, to automate the process of analyzing data such as numbers, audio, video, text and images. These data sets are then used to inform business strategy, such as improving delivering more relevant products, improving tech stacks or personalizing customer experiences.

WHY IS LEARING ORACLE SQL AND PL/SQL IMPORTANT?

A key part of data science is managing databases and database developers create applications that present data as useful information. Oracle's proprietary SQL and PL/SQL code is designed to optimize the performance of large databases.

WHY IS LEARING JAVA IMPORTANT?

Learning Java is often the start to a career in information technology as a whole. This object-oriented programming language is works on any operating system, hardware or device to build enterprise-level applications. In fact, nearly 97% of tech companies — such as Google, Uber and Facebook — use Java.

WHY IS LEARING PYTHON IMPORTANT?

Python is an object-oriented programming language that drives software development for many popular web and mobile apps. In terms of data science, it can also be used to display numbers, process text, solve equations, and manage data.
