Today we see this in the prominent buying patterns for business intelligence and analytics software and an increased focus on the user experience.

Wow. Data scientist persona = "data geek"? Way to alienate one of your core user groups. Not cool.

Susan M, I did not mean to offend you or anyone for that matter. Actually, the title of data geek is being used today with positive connotations and even as a badge of honor (as is data scientist). If you search the term, you'll see what I mean. I like the definition I found in the urban dictionary- "a geek is someone you pick on in high school and then end up working for as an adult". Tony
