Abstract

Data scientist is probably the most trendy job in Information Technology (IT) nowadays. This new profession emerged with the Big Data wave. Even though there is no such thing like an exact job profile, we expect that the data scientist can handle all the Big Data challenges that are novel to us. Without being a magician she or he shall help to deliver us all the magic Big Data promises. The data scientist capitalizes on unstructured data without taking the roles of a programmer, database expert, statistician, or content manager. All these professions are around for decades. So, why invent a new one?
