Data is the fuel of Information Age and Data Science is the refinery.
There is an analogy in O&G industry and Data Science work. Upstream O&G is analogous to extraction and collection of data from Point of sales, Sensors, click stream etc. Midstream O&G, where the transportation, storage, processing etc. happens, is the Data Warehousing and ETL field. finally the refinery is like the actual Data Science work, where we build models, validate them, pick best models, and deploy them. All of these stages need specialized knowledge and we should specialize in one of them with a good overview on others. Hence specialize and collaborate, rather than overstretch in all directions.
