Who is a Data Scientist?

The most discussed buzzword now in the industry, a Data Scientist explores data and build models to deliver value for the business. At the moment, there is a huge demand for Data Scientists in the Finance, Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Service industries. 

The role of a Data Scientist is different from the role of a  traditional Business Analyst or Statistician. Compared to a Statistician or Business Analyst, a Data Scientist needs to understand the key business initiatives within the organisation and at the same time know how to explore data and build data analytical models using tools and technologies.
