Getting Started with Data Science: Making Sense of Data with AnalyticsGetting Started with Data Science: Making Sense of Data with Analytics
By Murtaza Haider

Getting Started with Data Science takes its approach from worldwide best-sellers like Freakonomics and the books of Malcolm Gladwell: it teaches through a powerful narrative packed with unforgettable stories. Murtaza Haider offers careful, jargon-free coverage of basic theory and technique, backed with plenty of clear examples and practice opportunities. Everything's software and platform independent, so you can learn what you need whether you work with R, Stata, SPSS, SAS, or another toolset. Five senior IBM architects show you how to use information-centric views to give data a central role in project design and delivery. Using Common Information Models (CIM), you learn how to standardize the way you represent information, making it easier to design, deploy, and evolve even the most complex systems.
