Transition to data science




I am aspiring to make a transition to data science field.

I am from ITES (Mapping/GIS) with Project and Quality Management experience. Done my Six sigma so understand statistics a bit. Since I have spent 11 years in this field has grown with all personal liabilities.

I am planning to take up course like BACP-Great lake to transit to data science field by 2018. I do not want to relocate from Bangalore though. Hope it would work out.

Please suggest whether I am taking proper route. Guide further on making the transition successfull.
