Data science is a method for gaining insights from structured and unstructured data using approaches ranging from statistics, data analysis, machine learning, and other advanced methods. It is employed to transform data into value such that it results in improved revenue, reduced costs, business agility, improved customer experience, development of new products, and the like.
Data analytics describes the current state of reality, whereas data science uses that data to predict and/or understand the future.
Data science has more to do with the actual problem-solving than looking at, examining, and plotting data. It helps users predict and optimize business outcomes.
