"You asked - 'What skill makes an analyst indispensable?'"

Guess "natural curiosity" isn't much of a skill - but it's a key attribute.  I have worked on projects where the "topic" was not that interesting but when I started going through the data I would become interested and spend hours chasing down details.

@Pierre,

Thanks for sharing the information about eMetrics summit. But after visiting the site and reading some of the comments by attenddes and bloggers, I wonder what makes eMetrics summit different from other similar workshops or conferences. One blogger says that eMetrics summit has "a scientific approach to online marketing metrics." I wonder what that means.
