Salesforce already has a product called Einstein Analytics which the company promotes in its marketing materials with the question “why hire a data scientist when you have Einstein Analytics?”. Salesforce promotes Einstein Analytics as “data science that is always available” and a tool which democratizes data. Now, with the purchase of Tableau, its quest to democratize data science and put it into the hands of business managers seems to be in full swing.
We agree wholeheartedly with Salesforce’s conclusion. Data visualization is an oft overlooked skill when companies are looking for Data Scientists. Most companies are assessing coding skills first and foremost. But studies show that the ability to communicate data science insights to non technical business stakeholders is the skill that makes or breaks the value to a company of any data science project.
That’s why at QuantHub, data viz is high up on our list of skills to assess.
