Well, remember what some people define as the key to magnificent analytics:

The 90/10 rule -- spend 10% on technology and 90% on talent.

Who agrees?

I like the quotes about data not just being terabytes and the other quote that it's storytelling.  I have often seen this in a couple of work places where there was plenty of data, but not enough talent to make sense of it.

Let's hope these tech students also nurture their creativity and curiousity.

I agree, Jen. I know University of Illinois received a record number of applicants for its undergrad Engineering School, a top-rated program, this year. I would suspect other schools, and other tech disciplines, would report the same.

I love the way young people are expanding their tech knowledge and going into the tech fields whether they are men or women.

Isn't that the truth Noreen! I keep telling my own soon-to-be college freshman, "Think data science." I'm hoping one day she'll realize I'm not totally bonkers.

Hi Gil, interesting mix of people here (and, as a female, I'm pleased to see several women mixed up in this bunch of data scientists). I particularly like Monica Rogati's quote, "By definition all scientists are data scientists. In my opinion, they are half hacker, half analyst, they use data to build products and find insights. It's Columbus meet Columbo -- starry eyed explorers and skeptical detectives." That last piece brings to mind the "Holmes vs. Columbus" Point/Counterpoint debate we ran not too long ago!
