How to implement the Microsoft Team Data Science Process in data science consulting
To assist enterprise data science (DS) programs mature, Microsoft has proposed The Team Data Science Process (TDSP), which applies established engineering practices to DS workflows. TDSP is designed to help DS teams with guidelines and tools to improve productivity and quality. TDSP provides a DS lifecycle process definition, standardized structure to organize projects, strategies for version control to promote collaboration and quality, and DS utilities to improve efficiency. We present the TDSP principles and components, and how TDSP has been integrated within Microsoft’s DS and consulting services (MCS) organizations, as well as the practices of Microsoft partners, who deliver advanced analytics services to customers.
