Articulating the differences in data terminology can be confusing, even for people who have worked in the field of big data for years. But understanding this term is important, as it uncovers critical details that can lead to widely distinct data-oriented career paths.
First, we need to start by defining data analytics vs. data science. Once you develop a thorough understanding of each, you’ll have an easier time identifying the differences.
Exploring devices and their connectivity
Networking basics, i.e. TCP/Ip models, routers, small network configuration
Advanced techniques for data analysis
Working through courses on your way to a degree in data analytics can help equip you with a broad range of skills that you might later apply to future positions. You can also decide to focus on more specific programs or skillsets to determine the kind of career path you would prefer to take after graduation.
Business Intelligence Analyst
Data Warehouse Manager
As you can see, the technical programs and models that manipulate data mean just as much to a data scientist as understanding the results from data analysis. You need to have the skills to project and predict the outcome using the systems and models you create. You may work in the capacity of a data analyst as well, depending on the scope of your job description.
Big Data Engineer
