Data science is a rapidly developing sector of study. Its main goal is to translate vast amounts of records into valuable business insights. Implementing data science-based tools into your company can be highly beneficial. AI software is more efficient and accurate than humans have ever been.
It all sounds great, so how come that only a minority of companies on the market are using or working on the application of data science solutions? Well, the process is not as simple as it may seem.
The first and crucial step in order to use the full potential of massive amounts of data is its preparation. The process involves finding inadequate records and correcting or removing them from the base. Data cleansing is a mandatory process - otherwise, you can end up with false conclusions or predictions.
To cut on the painstaking job you can use special tools. The most popular ones are Trifacta, OpenRefine, Paxata, Alteryx, Data Ladder, WinPure.
You can also take advantage of libraries, for example, Python, Dplyr, or Pandas.

By connecting big data with context, it is possible to determine patterns, trends, and relationships from both structured and unstructured data of an enterprise.

While implementing AI solutions into your employees' habits make sure to first gain their trust in the new technology. Don’t expect them to get all excited about the extra work you’re putting on them without giving a reason that really speaks to them.
