Why Developers Need to Think like Data Scientists

Data is growing faster than is even fathomable. By 2020, roughly 1.7 megabytes of new information will be created every second for every human being on the planet. Given the immense amount of data, it’s no wonder there is a call in all industries for talent that can collect and analyze the data.

Data scientists around the world are now in high demand for their skills sets and high value to organizations. And since businesses are becoming more data-driven, it’s only a matter of time before developers need to work more closely with data scientists and adopt their thought-processes. As of now, developers and data scientists play distinct roles within organizations, though they may overlap in some areas. Software engineers look at company needs and either recommend or create the software based on those needs.
