A lot is happening in the field of data science. There is a growing enthusiasm and interest in the wide range of possibilities that data science can offer. From smart diagnostics using machine learning algorithms to sales forecasting and building recommender systems, the number of possibilities keeps on expanding. Many companies find it overwhelming to navigate through this field and determine their approach.
TMC Data Science launched the QuickScan to help companies kick-start or accelerate their data science activities. During this scan, two or three of our Data Scientists will come to your organization, map out your business activities and provide you a clear plan for Data Science and AI within just a few days. With over 20 data scientists, there is always someone with the right know-how and specialization to take an organizations’ data science activities to the next level. The QuickScan is an opportunity to explore the potential of data science without having to make a major investment in time or costs.
So, if you want to start with data science, but don’t know where to begin, if want to make it crystal clear what data science can bring for your organization, or if your data science initiatives aren’t evolving as you wished they would, the QuickScan can help you out! The QuickScan is tailored to your specific needs, so you can get maximum results.
How does the QuickScan work?
Although the QuickScan is a tailor-made project, we usually work with these five steps:
- Question: A lot of companies are struggling with a certain data science desire. We also see very often that people are overwhelmed by the amount of information about data science that is available online, but they don’t know where to start. In this Question phase, we determine the main demand of an organization.
- Planning: We determine the goals and timeline of the QuickScan in the Planning phase and do a short check on the situation; background, data maturity and challenges. Based on this information, we compile a QuickScan team out of experienced TMC Data Science Employeneurs. We always strive for a good combination of technical expertise and business understanding, based on the companies’ wishes.
- Deep-dive: In the Deep-dive phase, the QuickScan team is on-site to investigate the exact situation. We do interviews with employees, investigate available data, and work towards the agreed goal. Examples of concrete goals of the QuickScan could be to determine the biggest opportunities of data science in your business context or to create a concrete roadmap how to meet your organizations data science goals (like increasing profitability by using predictive maintenance).
- Wrap-up: During the Wrap-up, the results of the Deep-dive are being embedded in the organization. This can be done via presentations, handing over reports, training or delivering products, depending on the context of the situation.
- Check-in: The goal of the last step, the Check-in, is to evaluate the results of the QuickScan and to determine the (possible) next steps.
