In an ZDNet article published this morning, Revolution Analytics CTO Greg Todd surveys the landscape for IT archietcture and tools to bring the insights of data scientists to business decision makers:

In the changing world of technology, information, and analytics, the ability to leverage the latest techniques and tools has historically fallen to a limited group of experts – the statisticians. Over the past few years, that role has evolved to become more one of management scientist, coupled with a business analyst, both of whom try to hypothesize and solve the ever increasing complexity of analysis of customer and market behaviors to gain competitive advantage.

Read what Greg has to say about the talent gap for data scientists and statisticians, the rise of open source R, and the layers of a modern analytical platform at the link below.
