The Data Science Council of America (DASCA) researches, designs, and builds platform-independent Data Science knowledge frameworks, standards, and credentials, and certifies individuals entering or working across the spectrum of emerging Big Data professions. The prime goal of DASCA today is to constantly strive to refine and optimize the numerous roles and jobs in the Big Data space into concrete, sharply defined professions.
DASCA Credentials, approaches, initiatives, and programs work toward developing high-quality professionals to address squarely the challenging expectations of Big Data stakeholders internationally. Engineers, Analysts, and Scientists credentialed by DASCA form the world's top-league of the best-bred Big Data professionals.
DASCA's credentialing philosophy focuses on sharpness of ‘perspective of industry and profession’ and the depth of ‘knowledge that builds’. At another level, professionals certified by DASCA also demonstrate a usefully clear understanding of the entire range of roles, functions, and responsibilities they are expected to dispense in the most challenging of global Big Data environments.
DASCA has kept its mission simple: to contribute to breeding Big Data leaders for the international technology industry–professionals who can anticipate and appreciate the need for Big Data management methods to work in step with the needs of constantly evolving organizations, environments, technologies, and markets. Big Data Engineers, Big Data Analysts, and Big Data Scientists certified by DASCA are fit for pushing the frontiers of Information Science further.
