Half a year into my new life as a industry person, I can report that “data science” is not only a buzz word that is incredibly hip (everyone does data science, everyone wants to hire data scientists), it’s also an umbrella term that is used to describe a number of quite different jobs involved with handling big (or even medium or small) data. This can be confusing for academics with a quantitative training that want to move to industry.

This blog post summarizes the more important ones, I would like to add straight and very high-level business analytics to the set:
