-Shiva Project Manager, CTS

I have never seen such an excellent faculty like Mr.sasken who is the best faculty . I feel very lucky and blessed to be a student ...of sasken , I would recommend anybody who has a passion..

-ThulasiDass,CSC ,Chennai

"without doubt that his (Sasken (a) Sathya) training is the best compared to others. The way he explains statistical concepts in the intuitive way is very good, so that a person without any statistics background can understand and remember the terminology very easily....The training covered all of my expectations and helping me in the process of changing my carrier from legacy based technical skill sets to emerging hot technical sill sets The content of the material, code’s(R, Python& SAS) and datasets he uses to explain various machine learning algorithms are the best compared other training institutes/trainers.

-Babu Lakshman -Cognizant

"The course is a combination of various data science concepts such as machine learning, visualization, data mining, programming, data munging. It gives hands on experience with statistical modelling techniques. The course has real world examples of how...analytics have been used to significantly improve business performance. Apart from machine learning the course introduces to map reduce, spark and Hadoop ecosystems, bias vs variance, learning curves, etc. The course gives a good understanding of R and also good introduction to Python and SAS."

-Vijay , HCL

"The training was very perfect, as the teaching approach was very clear and the pace is slow, The way the faculty explain each and every topics in detail with simples examples helped me to understand ...even the complex algorithms. The training material is really good and helpful."
