A commercial airline facing increased market competition leveraged “big data” analytical tools and machine learning on terabytes of data to better serve its most frequent fliers and priority passengers and to improve financial performance. This is one example in today’s increasingly complex world, where data – no matter its form, shape or size – is omnipresent and can be used for competitive edge. Leaders at organizations of all shapes and sizes are doing their best to figure out how to turn that data into a resource. They are looking for answers in a new, growing field - data science.

Working to spur awareness of and best practices in data science, Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE:BAH), a leading provider of management consulting, technology and engineering services, today released The Field Guide to Data Science . The Guide taps into the diverse, collective expertise of the firm’s data science team and offers insight into how organizations can navigate the data science waters to capture revenue-driving and mission-enabling insights for the business, a process Booz Allen Hamilton refers to as ‘Cloud EBITDA’.

The guide offers readers a look into:

  • Data Science 101 – what is data science and how does it work, what it takes to set up a data science team and how to refine capabilities
  • The Nuances of Data Science – various principles, parts and models to be incorporated into a data science strategy
  • A Deep Dive - the more technical side of managing and analyzing data
  • Success – case studies and examples of work that Booz Allen Hamilton has completed as a partner to clients

“Our hope is that The Field Guide to Data Science will serve as a resource to help pioneer the data science community as the field continues to evolve and grow, particularly at the university level where data science degrees will soon be the norm,” said Booz Allen Hamilton vice president and data scientist, Dr. Joshua Sullivan. “Our team of data science experts are entrenched in the nuances of this field and have so much to offer; however, we also realize that there is enormous potential to tap into the data science community and provide them with the opportunity to contribute and create an industry wide set of best practices.”

The Guide, a living document, is available via the Booz Allen Hamilton website. It will be open for user generated submissions; interested, qualified parties are invited to email ideas and perspectives or submit content via a pull request on the GitHub repository.
