Infographic: Who works with Big Data?

Inspired by this Quora thread, I decided to create an Infographic about the different job titles associated with Big Data.

Because the Silicon Valley buzzword machine spits out more phrases than most humans can (or care to) comprehend, “Big Data” is still a mystery to the general tech-public. What’s clear to most data wranglers is a mystery to everyone else: data is created by products — the heart of start-ups and established companies alike — and is then deposited into a black hole of analysis catch-phrases. I hope this infographic de-mystifies the process of that black hole and sheds some light on what exactly the practitioners of “Big Data” analytics actually accomplish.
