Data Scientists Work Closely with Data Architects
Statisticians should gain some familiarity with how to design a database: metrics to use (exact definitions), how they are captured, and how granular you need to be when keeping old data. This is part of data science. It involves working closely with DB engineers and data architects. Data scientists must have some of the knowledge of data architects and also of business people to understand exactly what they do and what they are going to capture. Data scientists should also be involved in dashboard design. Typically, all these things are tasks that many statisticians don’t want to do or believe are not part of their job.
