16 analytic disciplines compared to data science

“ An example of data science project is the creation of the fastest growing data science Twitter profile, for computational marketing. It leverages big data, and is part of a viral marketing / growth hacking strategy that also includes automated high quality, relevant, syndicated content generation (in short, digital publishing version 3.0). ”Unlike most other analytic professions, data scientists are assumed to have great business acumen and domain expertize -- one of the reasons why they tend to succeed as entrepreneurs.There are many types of data scientists, as data science is a broad discipline. Many senior data scientists master their art/craftsmanship and possess the whole spectrum of skills and knowledge; they really are the unicorns that recruiters can't find. Hiring managers and uninformed executives favor narrow technical skills over combined deep, broad and specialized business domain expertize - a byproduct of the current education system that favors discipline silos, while true data science is a silo destructor. Unicorn data scientists (a misnomer, because they are not rare - some are famous VC's) usually work as consultants, or as executives. Junior data scientists tend to be more specialized in one aspect of data science, possess more hot technical skills (Hadoop, Pig, Cassandra) and will have no problems finding a job if they receivedappropriate training and/or have work experience with companies such as Facebook, Google, eBay, Apple, Intel, Twitter, Amazon, Zillow etc. Data science projects for potential candidates can be found here.
