)-- The Data Science Foundation website was launched on 18th July 2016 and will provide information about big data and data science to all visitors and will have a range of member only pages and services for big data professionals. The site designed and developed by Peppersack a website design and digital marketing company based in Manchester has a large public offering, many pages for members only and five separate dashboards, one for each type of member. Members will be encouraged to use the site to keep up to date with data science developments, to make professional contacts, to showcase their expertise and to occupy positions as thought leaders.
The Data Science Foundation is a newly formed professional body representing the interests of people working in and with big data. The aims of the foundation are to develop a UK-based data science community, educate UK business leaders about the benefits of using big data to make evidence based decisions and to promote the interests of members.
The development team at Peppersack Manchester brought together skills from the core disciplines of Digital Marketing Manchester, SEO Company Manchester and Website Design Manchester. With the work following on from a commission to undertake market research and develop a brand identity.
Membership is divided into 5 different types and will comprise of universities providing data science MSc and PhD courses, students on these courses, companies supplying big data services, individual data scientists and corporations buying big data services. The foundation will develop a community around big data, will encourage the sharing of information, will work hard to develop a profile for individual members and will help members to achieve their commercial goals.
The dashboards enable different member types to have a different experience when interacting with the site, one which is tailored to their needs. For example corporate members and suppliers can post job vacancies, university members can promote data science courses and students and individuals can post CVs.
Peppersack’s, Digital Marketing Manchester team is being retained to publicise the information members submit to the site in the form of white papers, blogs, news items and use cases. This in turn will help to promote the foundation and will enable members to emerge as industry leaders in their particular niches. Peppersack SEO Company Manchester will optimise the submissions and will post information to portals and directories. Again a service which is valuable to both the foundation and to the members as their names become more prominent online.
