Arun Saksena, Director, Data Science and Analytics Cisco Consulting Services
Big Data and Analytics is an important component of Cisco’s strategy to become the #1 IT company in the world. Cisco is taking a unique, network-differentiated approach to Big Data and Analytics. I will briefly discuss Cisco’s strategy and approach to Data Analytics, and describe the Analytics Services that we offer to customers. I will then discuss our approach to Data Science, and the skills we are developing within Cisco in the area of Data Science and Analytics. I’ll also discuss the role of a Data Scientist on cross-functional teams, and close off by sharing a perspective on how this role is expected to evolve in the next few years.
