@BigDataGuru, I'm glad to share your interview - it gives an in-depth look at what a data scientist offers.

Also important to note is the growing demand for data scientists. Organizations have to be competitive to attract and keep this special breed of talent. The United Nations Global Pulse points out its advantage saying, "Many data scientists want to work for institutions that are doing something to help society and the world at large." http://www.sas.com/knowledge-exchange/business-analytics/innovation/next-up-for-private-sector-data-philanthropy-and-innovation/index.html

What else appeals to a data scientist when choosing where to work or who to work for?

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
