Interviewed on my analytics adventures

I just got interviewed rather extensively at http://www.analyticsvidhya.com/blog/2015/02/interview-expert-ajay-ohri-founder-decisionstats-com/

Interview with Industry expert – Ajay Ohri

Kunal: You started data science career much before people would have heard about it and it became one of the hottest field around. What were the challenges that you faced during the initial stages of your professional career?

Ajay: Cool question man. Yeah it used to be called business analytics, then data analytics and now its data science. What will they call it next?

Initial challenges: R was raw (this was 2007) , SAS was expensive, even Open Office was not so good as it is now. Getting a pipeline of work, leads for clients, converting leads to contracts and chasing people to pay me after work done were initial challenges.
