McLean, Va — Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE:BAH), a leading provider of management consulting, technology and engineering services, today released its second edition of The Field Guide to Data Science.
This latest edition is an update to The Field Guide to Data Science, which was originally released in November of 2013. The resource is widely regarded throughout government and industry as the definitive guide to data science. It has served as the foundation for the definition and role of data science within major government and commercial organizations, and universities have integrated it as part of their data science course work.
The goal of The Field Guide to Data Science is to help organizations of all types understand how to make use of their data as a resource. The Field Guide captures practical insights and lessons learned from Booz Allen’s nearly 600-person data science team.

The second edition of The Field Guide to Data Science reflects Booz Allen’s evolving perspective on cutting-edge analytics techniques, including deep learning. The guide, by extension, taps into the diverse, collective expertise of the firm’s data science team and contributors from the broader data science community. It offers perspective into how organizations can navigate the data science waters to capture revenue-driving and mission-enabling insights.
“The release of the original Field Guide to Data Science was foundational in Booz Allen’s efforts to grow data science as a discipline,” said Booz Allen Senior Vice President and Data Scientist Josh Sullivan. “Based on the overwhelmingly positive response to the first edition, as well as the pace at which the practice of data science is evolving, we’re thrilled to release an update to The Field Guide that offers fresh insights on the most advanced data science methods currently being deployed. Everyone, from the senior executive to the skilled practitioner to the data science novice, can find value in this new edition.”
