Starting career as a Data Analyst in India: Story of Abhinay Bandaru

I am a Data Analyst at Head Infotech Pvt. Ltd., a gaming company in Hyderabad. I have done my B. Tech from NIT Surat in Electronics & Communication Engineering. It was clear in my final year of graduation that I was not going to continue my career as an Electronics Engineer due to many reasons. This is the point where I thought of a career transition. Then, I researched about the areas where I can do well and for many obvious reasons, I was good at Mathematics, Statistics and Physics right from my childhood. This helped me in taking the decision to shift towards data science. It was a field where you can play with mathematics and logic to help answer difficult business problems using analytics.

I got to know about UpGrad’s PGDP in Data Science, with a certification from IIIT Bangalore, through one of my friends. After checking the course content, I found the pedagogy of content to be well organized. The reviews were very good as it was taught by professors from IIIT Bangalore. Even after that, I had a lot of discussions with many people along with the UpGrad mentor before arriving at the decision to take the course, as it was priced a little high for me. Finally, I enrolled in the course and it was the best decision I took just after completing my B. Tech. At some point in your life, you have to take a calculated risk to achieve success in life and this was it.

I had taken this online course leaving all the Electronics engineering knowledge and completely concentrating on Data Science. The content taught by IIIT-B professors made me more excited about this field. The support of UpGrad student mentors in the course was a crucial part. I followed them and they helped a lot in clarifying my queries. There was also placement assistance given where you are perfectly guided on how to start a career as a Data Analyst.

When everything was going fine while learning all these, I got a call from Head Infotech Pvt. Ltd. to attend for an interview for Data Analyst role. After several rounds, finally, all my efforts after the graduation from my home, paid off – achieving career start as a Data Analyst. I would like to thank once again the IIIT-B professors and UpGrad for providing strong content and delivering such a huge course so systematically, and also Head Infotech Pvt. Ltd. for believing in me to join their family.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Getting Started With Data Lakes

Frameworks for Efficient Enterprise Analytics

The opportunities big data offers also come with very real challenges that many organizations are facing today. Often, it’s finding the most cost-effective, scalable way to store and process boundless volumes of data in multiple formats that come from a growing number of sources. Then organizations need the analytical capabilities and flexibility to turn this data into insights that can meet their specific business objectives.

This Refcard dives into how a data lake helps tackle these challenges at both ends — from its enhanced architecture that’s designed for efficient data ingestion, storage, and management to its advanced analytics functionality and performance flexibility. You’ll also explore key benefits and common use cases.


As technology continues to evolve with new data sources, such as IoT sensors and social media churning out large volumes of data, there has never been a better time to discuss the possibilities and challenges of managing such data for varying analytical insights. In this Refcard, we dig deep into how data lakes solve the problem of storing and processing enormous amounts of data. While doing so, we also explore the benefits of data lakes, their use cases, and how they differ from data warehouses (DWHs).

This is a preview of the Getting Started With Data Lakes Refcard. To read the entire Refcard, please download the PDF from the link above.
