As the types and volume of data sources increase, data management converges with clinical operations, and the use of technology becomes more prevalent, the need for data scientists and data science skill sets increases. There is buzz around how machine learning and artificial intelligence can be applied to the practice of data management and how that may transform the function to data sciences.

We may be on a journey from data management to data science, but the path is not necessarily mapped out. What exactly does this mean for data management? What is the ideal definition of a data scientist, and does that apply to data management? It’s difficult to say where the role of DM is going and how we will get there, but most agree that change is already underway.
