The past few weeks I've been curating 2 custom cases focused on Product Management & Product Analytics as two amazing roles in Data and earned my CSPO 📚

I delivered it today 🙌🏽 fellows loved it, we need more Product Managers!

#data #product #WomenWhoCode #agile #codenewbie Image
Both roles hit a few "Top Jobs of 2020" reports during COVID, everyone's creating a product/service or adapting their products to remote, the demand exploded! ☄

We think of products like apps but products could be a service, like the DS4A training!👇
bit.ly/ds4a_tena
➡️ Airbnb is a product and a service
➡️ Uber is a product and a service
➡️ Your phone is a product
➡️ Consulting is a service

Today will be another great day in the DS4A community because the fellows will be learning how data plays a significant role in the product space.

There seemed to be some confusion about (the use of) words in @CommonsHealth Committee yesterday morning, so here's a [Thread] to try to clarify.

First "#commercial". It is of course the case that many parts of the #NHS use commercial providers, e.g. of software, whether that...
...is @Microsoft365 for word processing, spreadsheets & e-mail; or IT systems to handle patients' records in hospitals (e.g. @CernerUK) & General Practice (e.g. @TPP_SystmOne, @EMISHealth, @CegedimHS); or software to drive complicated equipment like #MRIscanners, etc.

This is...
..entirely normal use of #commercial software & software services, for which the #NHS body is the #DataController. Apart from when that software goes wrong, I don't believe many would have concerns about this.

Then there are #commercial providers of #NHS services, about which...

Finola ONeill shared a link.
I've worked in the #NHS for 20 years. It is already massively #privatised.
The white paper for the new "health reforms" plans to remove competition for contracts so private companies can get them without a competitive process.
And they can sit on the new #NHS #ICS boards that decide who gets the contracts. A #virgin exec already sits on the #Bristol one.
#Virgin took children's health in #Devon, did an awful job, #NHS took it back and were left to pick up the pieces
Have you just watched the #Pandemic?
#Serco Test and Trace, #PPE contracts to cronies. Billions and billions of tax payers money haemorrhaged into private consultants pockets and shareholders.
Drop your BS narrative that private is more effective and accept that the Pandemic has shown this not to be the case.

#Thread Services - *ASPECTS*

#Familiarity

Police ,Foreign ,Forest ,Revenue, Administration, Railway - are some of the services with which there exists an amount of familiarity amongst the aspirants & public.

(1/n)
But there are many other services that perform very crucial functions which needs highlighting.

Most notably, (for eg.)

Indian Information Service #communication
Indian Statistical Service #data
Indian Economic Service #policy

#Domination

Many a times, certain Services try to dominate others by the virtue of

1. Political proximity
2. Scope of Functioning
3. de facto postings/positions
4. Public image
5.Service benefits ( promotion, increment, deputation opportunity etc)

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

How to opt out
The 'Government has announced the 1st July start for #GP #data upload in England is now a start on 1st September 2021 – but the Government has not said that you will hear anything from anyone directly about its plans, nor what (if anything) will change.
As a result, we cannot guarantee that you will have any more information in August than you do now.
You do still have choices about what’s done with your data, but the Government has still not committed to telling everyone what it plans to do with #NHS patients’ #data,
nor how everyone can exercise their own choices.
If you want to wait and see, you can do that – and you can join our mailing list to know exactly what’s happening when we do.
If you have concerns and wish to opt out now, the process is this:

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by #Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (#UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.

I had attended a webinar recently and learnt something incredibly unique! I discovered that you could be a Data Scientist, but having a #specialisation is IMPORTANT!

What is a "specialisation"? How many kinds of specialisations are there in #DataScience Domain?

Thread🧵 Image
*Specialisation*
One can acquire all the skills of a Data Scientist, but having specialisation in a particular skill can set you apart from the rest. It can be anything! You can analyse data as no one else; data visualisation or database management (#DBMS) could be your niche.🤩
☑️Data Visualisation
If you have a knack for producing beautiful graphical representations from the data, this could be your domain of specialisation, and you could become a Data #Visualisation Engineer. Image

44% of people sentenced to jail have a diagnosed mental illness

Each phase of data analysis process

(1) understanding the business

- while analyzing data we should have clear understanding of industry , what kind of decision the company is going to make
Best way is to make question and answering them
(2) Acquire the raw data

- after all the questions are answered data is collected from different sources a raw data is formed and its not exactly the correct one its just raw

(3) Extract the data

- This step is used to create final data set
(4) Transform the data

- It is the step for the conversion of dataset to another state structure this transformation process refers to detecting and understanding the data in its source format.
