Business analytics and data science is a convergence of many fields of expertise. Professionals form multiple domains and educational backgrounds are joining the analytics industry in the pursuit of becoming data scientists.
Two kinds of data scientist I met in my career. One who provides attention to the details of the algorithms and models. They always try to understand the mathematics and statistics behind the scene. Want to take full control over solution and the theory behind it. The other kind are more interested in the end result without looking at the theoretical details. They are fascinated by the implementation of new and advanced models. Inclined towards solving the problem in hand rather than the theory behind the solution.
