The demand for data professionals and decision science is growing. Decision scientists are rare professionals who have insights into behavioral science, business acumen, and design thinking. In addition, these qualified professionals can artistically blend business, math, technology, and behavioral sciences and use a variety of skill sets to help enterprises make informed decisions. As a result, there is a huge demand for skilled professionals in various industries like telecom, BFSI, IT and many more. These trained professionals use AI and machine learning to search for large amounts of data across different domains to provide valuable insights on sales growth and fraud detection, anti-money laundering, pattern recognition and risk mitigation.
