Often confused in the wild to be the leader over an individual(s) of limited intellect and skills within an organization that can only mine or move data around from one place to another. But in fact, the Chief Data Monkey is a new species that has command of massive amounts of data that can be turned into information and insights for individuals to make better decisions. Organizations are sprouting up around "Big Data" and calling on these individuals to help make sense of the data both big and small that have impact on markets, science and governments. The challenge for governments and large enterprises becomes who should own big data initiatives that cross over entire departments and organizations. Therefore, the rise of the Chief Data Monkey becomes a natural evolution to ensure continued growth and prosperity and elevates the role of the once belittled data monkey.
