SUMMARY: A data scientist is someone who can obtain, scrub, explore and analyze available information to create valuable data for users. Data scientists work in a horizontal role, partnering and collaborating with groups across the entire organization. In many ways, a data scientist serves as a change agent in today's workforce, pushing organizational collaboration and information integration by turning copious amounts of data into real value, providing insight that informs business decisions. Successful data scientists can handle information complexity, and influence both the business and IT organizations. They provide the most value when they are learning what the data is telling rather than spending time working on the functional aspects of data management.
