Worried Your Call Center Job Might Be Taken by a Robot? You should be.

http://news.abs-cbn.com/business/05/12/17/bpos-gearing-up-for-impact-of-artificial-intelligence-on-industry

I shared this article on an FB group and got a lot of inquires from people who are indeed seeing an opportunity to move from a call center job to a Data Science and Analytics (DSA) job.

Most of the questions revolved around how to transition.

Want to get Data Science and Analytics Training. Not sure how, here are some tips!

  1. Self-Teach a Skill. (YouTube has thousands of free resources)
  2. Volunteer at Work. (Find out what skills are in demand in your company and ask if you can help)
  3. Take a Training Class (there are a lot of public training classes out there, including some that DMAIPH does).
  4. Read a Book (Experts share a lot… like my book Putting Your Data to Work: An Analytics Guidebook for Filipino Professionals)
  5. Find a Mentor (Jedi Knights start as an apprentice, so do many analysts and data scientists)
  6. Join a Group (there are a lot of meet up groups like Data Science Philippines you can use to network)
  7. Go Back to School (a few dozen schools here in the Philippines are either already offering data science an analytics programs are kicking them off soon)
  8. Follow a Blog. (Besides reading books, there are a lot of good ideas shared on blogs like mine, dmaiph.com)
  9. Become a Member (join associations like aap.ph aka Analytics Association of the Philippines)

Another question that came up often was, “What should you learn first?”

Find a tool, technique or technology that is high demand and fits your interests and aptitude. The best way to find out what to focus on is do a job search for the kind of job you want and look at the requirements. For newbies some of the in demand skills are

  • SQL (the most widely used language used for data analytics)
  • Microsoft Excel (if you know pivot tables, simple formulas and can make decent visuals you will be in high demand)
  • Tableau (a free version called Tableau Public can be downloaded and is easy to learn)
  • R (the most widely used tool for predictive analytics and data science and its free)

And then a lot more people added me on FB, hoping to network and find new opportunities. Thats a good tip too. Networking is key.

DMAIPH offers a wide range of analytics centric training solutions for professionals and students via public, in-house, on-site, and academic settings. We tailor each training event to meet the unique needs of the audience.

Came across this interesting Forbes article. What makes up “grit”?

1. Courage

2. Conscientiousness 

3. Follow Through

4. Resilience

5. Excellence

Yeah, I got those. 🙂

So do most of the people who I surround myself with.

So Just How Many Filipino Data Scientists Are There Anyway?

One Question I have been asking myself for awhile is just how many Filipino Data Scientists are there anyway?

I ask this  question because based on my observations of job postings and job titles and industry buzz, there are way more data scientist jobs open here in the Philippines then there are actual data scientists to fill them.

And I’m not even trying to separate the “true” data scientists with the “quasi” data scientists that are doing data science but without all the pre-requisites required.

Lumping everyone together into one number, I wonder what it is. An educated guess would be a few hundred at best. Yet, there are literally 1000 job postings out there right now for data scientist.

This speaks to a fundamental lack of awareness across the country as to what truly a data scientist is and what they do. But that’s for another blogpost.

Right now Im simply going to do some research, survey my network and try and come up with a best guess on exactly how many data scientists there currently are here in the Philippines.

Please feel free to contribute to the conversation… its not going to be easy to get a universally acceptable answer without a lot of discourse first.

Let the hunt for a unicorn head count begin!

DMAI Data Science > Where Dreams and Demand Meet

Building a data science team tasked with helping other organizations build data science teams is equal parts dream and demand.

There is a quickly growing need for data science capabilities in the Philippines, but there are few ways for Filipinos to learn how to be data scientists. Almost over night it seems that people are posting job requirements for high powered analytics talent with very little idea of what data science is all about.

Business analytics is just now taking root in academia and being offered as a series of elective classes. Big data is just one class. Predictive and prescriptive analytics are also just one 3-5 month class. Its just not enough.

The big companies who are committed to building their own team are scrambling to find talent in the already hyper competitive BPO industry.

That’s the demand.

DMAI_GrowMoreDMAI_shemac081815 copy

Data science as a discipline is still quite new. In the U.S. and India you are starting to see a significant number of degree programs in analytics and data science. I learned a lot about data science before it even had a name. Analytics is deeply rooted at Wells Fargo and I benefited from being in the right place at the right time to get exposed to some pretty awesome analytics efforts.

This experience unlocked an opportunity to become one of top analytic minds in my adopted home, the Philippines. The opportunity of a life time really. Now I am at a point in the evolution of my business, DMAI, where I need to find 3 people like me to join me in my quest. My quest to help organizations in the Philippines set up data science teams.

I need a dream team. Like the Eath’s Mightiest Heroes the Avengers or the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. the DMAI Data Science Team needs the best of the best who excel in complimenting each other.

We need a big data analyst strong man in the paint, we need a visionary data modeling expert who can create great data models and pass them off to the shooter of the team, the business analyst.

That’s the dream!

It’s time to join the right and be at the forefront of spreading data science across this great island nation so full of potential.

If you feel the call that I feel and are interested then connect with me on LinkedIn and/or send me you resume at danmeyer@dmaiph.com ,

What Is Data Science and Who are Data Scientists?

Per Wikipedia, Data Science is the extraction of knowledge from large volumes of data that are structured or unstructured, which is a continuation of the field data mining and predictive analytics, also known as knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD).

Does anyone know  a “data scientist”? Data scientists work with large data sets, analysis models, and technological solutions to help businesses drive more data-driven decisions. This is known as data science. Data scientists should have these six skill sets:

Tech Skills

  • Programmer
  • Statistician
  • Domain SME

People Skills

  • Artist
  • Client Facing
  • Communicator

As you can imagine, it is very difficult to find people who have expertise in all 6 skills sets.

DMAI Diagram_shemac101_081015 copy

The unique blend of skills required for a role on a data science team is being debated and almost everyone around the globe who is associated with Big Data, Analytics and Visualization has opinion on this topic.

DMAI has determined that the best lineup for our clients in the Philippines is a veteran business analyast, a big data analyst and a data modeling expert.

Ask me how you can get a data science team set up in your business.

More Reasons To Stay Then Reasons To Go

One of the downs in the up and down cycle of running a business is when people leave.

Employee retention is something all companies have to worry about. But few really try and do something about it.

I read a lot about why employees stick and why they leave.

I know that to stick they need to have basic needs met like a good salary, feeling valued, being appreciated and having a safe and comfortable place to work.

Work-life balance, a supportive leadership team and feeling productive are all important as well.

Here are my  Top Reasons To Stick with DMAI

  1. Work Life Balance
  2. Opportunity For Growth
  3. A Stable Client
  4. 80% E-mail – 20% Phones
  5. Exposure to Analytics
  6. Open-Minded and Supportive Leadership
  7. Competitive Compensation
  8. Working With Good People
  9. Being Valued by the Company
  10. Being Appreciated for the Work You Do

I am sure each of my team has their own top ten reasons for themselves.

It is almost always easier to fix whatever you don’t like about your current job then it is to leave and hope you can find something better.

Sticking with a job long term is not easy and its becoming less and less the norm, which makes it all the more special when you find the right spot for you.
