Is data science difficult?

Despite the easy availability of open source tools & technologies; data science is not a simple & straightforward proposition which can immediately reap benefits. The ability to harmonize large sets of data, train existing systems with relevant data, identify the best-fit models (from the various options) and then applying them to get correct & indicative results takes a good amount of time. More so, more than 3 quarters of the overall data is unstructured in nature, which makes logical analysis even more complex. Hence, the mantra for students is to remain focussed and motivated; and stop not till the goal is reached.
