@tomsg, did the company always have a centralized team or did it arrive at that decision and evolve toward it? I'm curious is you have any lessons learned to share about that process if so.

This article made me reflect about the Texas Advanced Computing Center I wrote about recently -- the place that had the super data visualizations of urban planning alternatives. When I think about it, the TACC would fit the model of a really, really big team, as Peter Guerra was describing.
Centralized data science teams: These teams tend to be on the larger side, comprising computer scientists, mathematicians, and domain experts who rotate in and out from different parts of the business on a project-by-project basis. ...
Business unit data science teams: In this model, "tiny different data science teams are dispersed throughout the organization." This model tends to spring up at organizations that already have different analytics groups within business units.
I can't quite fit the TACC totally into either model. Maybe it's a big conbination of both...
