"The demand for data scientists and data engineers is just exploding", said John Huseby, a board member, "The association forms a community for data analytics professionals to network, exchange ideas and advance their profession", he remarked.
The association offers committee forums for setting standards on data cleansing, data integration, predictive analytics, data mining, data modelling and data governance. It offers a calendar of data analytics events, conferences, meet-ups, educational and networking opportunities. Three levels of membership are available; individual memberships, students and corporate sponsorships.

"With more than thousands of data analytics professionals working as data scientists and data engineers out there we need to form a community to define the job roles, career direction and professional code of conduct", added John Huseby. "An aspiration of The Association of data Scientists and Data Engineers to bring data analytics professionals together to form a union, a common voice for advocacy across legislative and business landscape", he commented.

Data science is a wide and dynamic field that is being energized by other disciplines. Recent advances in computer science, artificial intelligence, engineering and statistics have blurred the lines that separated them and have introduced exciting new opportunities for further discoveries and development.
In light of these technological advances, the Association of Data Scientists and Data Engineers is launched with the goal of evolving into one of the premiere global resources for data analytics technologies, information, and activities. "We seek to create new opportunities to introduce data science and technology to new and different audiences and disciplines. Further, we seek to create a virtual community for stakeholders that have interests in data sciences and its application in life", said John Huseby.
