Staffing your big data team

Cloudera

A traditional BI and analytics organization consists of three main groups: Analysts that develop reports often using sample data. The data management team – modelers that take requests, find data, and develop models to answer the questions. In a big data world, we often see three new roles emerge and work more closely together: data engineers, data scientists and architects. You can think of them as the data workhorse.
