'Companies will stop hiring data scientists when they realise that the majority bring no value' says data scientist

From Computing.co.uk

"Data scientists need to stop playing around and start delivering a measurable return for their organisation, or their jobs will be on the line.

That's the view of Gianmario Spacagna, a data scientist for customer and retail banking at Barclays in London, who believes that many of his counterparts spend too much time 'playing'and experimenting with data and analytics tools and not enough time focusing on real business needs.

‘If you just do analytics, if you just do scripting, if you just make a model and this model does not go into production then at the end of the day you just did research, but your company is not going to profit,’ he told Computing during the recent Spark Summit Europe.

‘It's not a playground. It is not academic. The company wants to make money and you have to solve a problem,’ he said, adding that many data scientists find it hard to turn their initial explorations into relevant projects and applications.

‘This is where data scientists struggle a lot. Companies will stop hiring data scientists, I promise you, when they realise that the majority of them do not bring value,’ he said.”
