Conducting exploratory data analysis or even basic business intelligence on Hadoop often requires input from data scientists who:
- Create models for related information across Hadoop.
- Structure databases to contain that data.
- Ensure different BI tools generate consistent results when referencing identical data elements.
How many data scientists you'll have to hire depends on the size of your organization and the composition of the data under its control. In this post we review how much it typically costs to hire a data scientist, the factors you'll have to consider when assembling a team and ways you can alleviate the workload placed on data scientists.
