Initiative for Analytics and Data Science Standards (IADSS)

Global Professional Standards

As the role of data science and analytics is expanding very rapidly in creating new business
models or changing existing ones, the demand for data science professionals is growing at an
increasing rate. However, almost every company in the industry has a unique way of defining
roles and assigning titles in data analytics related positions which have resulted in a chaotic
market that is confusing to employers, academic and training institutions, and data science

Launched to develop industry standards for data science professionals, through a collaborative
process with businesses, academia, and the data science community, IADSS is an independent
initiative, aiming to present a framework for the knowledge and skills required in data science
and support building measurement and assessment methodologies for analytics and data
science professionals.
