Let me comprehend based on my 20 years of working experience. You need to know few things to become a data scientist. 1) Statistics and Mathematics : It is like a doctor having good understanding of a body anatomy.If a doctor does not have any knowledge about human body, do you visit that doctor. I hope definitely not. Similarly,knowing mathematics and statistics are mandatory for a data scientist. So your effort should be more to know maths and statistics. 2) Programming:It is like a doctor using a stethoscope to measure heart beat. The way doctor uses the stethoscope differ from the way child uses. Doctor has the knowledge of human body, but child does not. So having a instrument is not going to useful,without having knowledge about proper subject.In our case,Mathematics and Statistic is like doctor having knowledge about human body.So learning like R/Python/SAS etc are like stethoscope.It will not take much time,if you know mathematics and statistics. Maximum two weeks effort or one month effort. 3) Domain Knowledge:This you will again while working. So to master data science,you need to master mathematics and statistics and learn any one programming like R/Python etc. read less

Hi Vamsi, Glad to hear your thoughts and your interest about Data Science. Data Science encompasses the Science that goes into Data and thereby encapsulates tools starting from Excel SQL through SAS R Python and ends with Hadoop ecosystems Spark and beyond. We from UNP would advise you to undergo a Data Science Certification where in you will be doing more 50% of the course duration on Hands-On and Live Projects and most importantly the course should teach you how to tackle a Business Problem. These Projects should be on industry scale which would give you the apt experience of wrangling with data and generating insights from it. Post that you will be in a position to apply for a Data Scientist role and the added experience from the work you're doing now should give the boost to bag a job. Hope we were able to answer that question er your needs. read less
