data scientist or
number cruncher or
whatever you call them, are here to stay and grow big. In fact it’s been dubbed the sexiest job title of the 21st century. I call it digital gold mining because every insight obtained by delving into voluminous data is as valuable as gold itself! Besides, insights are so rare. One has to work hard to see patterns and connect little dots- This I can say from the few data analyst projects I have handled.
