in our consulting engagements, and also two other data science consulting companies that I know and work with, if we have a pure play data science project, meaning that the data engineering’s not in scope, the customer said that they were going to take care of it, we won’t start work until we have proof that the data’s been loaded

in our consulting engagements, and also two other data science consulting companies that I know and work with, if we have a pure play data science project, meaning that the data engineering’s not in scope, the customer said that they were going to take care of it, we won’t start work until we have proof that the data’s been loaded. We’ve been burned so many times by them saying like, “Oh, you know what? You guys can start on Monday. We’ll get the data loaded sometimes next week.” We’re not even going to start until that data’s there….that’s the other issue too with the data engineer. I actually ran into this issue….on the younger side of the data engineers, one of the issues that we run into is that they don’t have the seniority to stand up to some ancient Oracle DBA that’s not willing to play nice. …it’s a really hard role to fill because, you’re right,… the interpersonal skills, and the political navigation skills are really important for the data engineer. — https://blog.dominodatalab.com/collaboration-data-science-data-engineering-true-false/
