Data science is more than just a set of tools and techniques for extracting knowledge from data sets and data streams. Data science is also a process of getting from goals and questions to real, valuable outcomes by exploring, observing, and manipulating a world of data. Traversing this world can be difficult and confusing. Software developers and non-technical folks may struggle with the uncertainty and fuzzy answers that data invariably provide, and statisticians may have trouble working with any of the multitude of relevant software tools that lie outside of their expertise. Others may not even know where to begin.
