What are you doing to establish a useful data science strategy at your organization?
It is important to have a clear objective of the information to be derived from data collected. A clear question will determine and define how and what data to collect.
I disagree with question 6: "True or false? Research scientists trained in disciplines such as physics don't make good data scientists because they often lack a business or technology background."

Folks brought in with experience of Technical and business knowledge will bring out better results. For example, hive complex analytics queries and understanding the mathematical part or computation is easier , since they have undergone Mathematical experience.
