For businesses looking to hire a data scientist, rather than looking for an individual who had the requisite skills, it would be easier to look for individuals each possessing some of the skills needed and who could be integrated into a team said Oyvind Roti, International Head Solutions, Google Cloud Platform.
Roti was speaking at Agoda Outside, a new undertaking from Agoda that focuses on ideas, research, exchanging information, philanthropy, and outreach. The event aimed to help attendees understand how big data is changing the way people travel and how companies work with big data, and how to use it better.

Dr Andreas Weigend, Director at Social Data Lab, said that data didn’t have to be a cost to the company, but could instead be a profit and revenue generator.
