Resolved: Why does Data Science incorporate only part of data analytics?
Why does Data Science incorporate only part of data analytics?
Grateful if you can provide a deeper insight on the above question. Also grateful if you can please provide another example that involves data analytics, but neither data science nor business analytics.
Thank you in advance.
Thanks for reaching out.
I suppose that you will have found the answer by the time you complete this course. Nevertheless, in a nutshell, according to our graph, data analytics covers anything that involves the use of prediction methods on quantative data. Data Science is practically the same field, devoted to the world of business.
An example of data analytics that is neither data science nor business analytics is digital signal processing.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the help! Is there any other example apart from digital signal processing?
I personally can't think of another example at the moment. The purpose of our graph is to designate where data science fits in the whole picture. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) has just been used as an example to show there are other disciplines that may not be treated as data science and are still related to working with quantitative data.
Perhaps there are other disciplines or subdicsiplines in physics or chemistry that would make a good example. At the end of the day, there's also the "danger" of people calling "data science" anything that has to do with data. Nevertheless, this is not really relevant for the purpose of understanding what "data science" is all about - it is just enough to know what the term "data science" is being used for today.
Hope thsi helps.
Thank you so much for the prompt response and for your usual assistance! :)
I would want to think that cybercrime can also be considered as part of data analytics that is neither data science nor business analytics. I'm not sure. I'm just thinking about it.
