How many orgs are able to fill these posts?
"The neuro-analyst probably isn't a position that organizations will be filling immediately..." 

That's an understatement! All the organizations I speak to are in a white-knuckled scramble just to hire people who know Hadoop, let alone fill these esoteric staffing roles.

What's the answer? I don't know. I do know the infrastructure vendors and dashboard vendors are acutely aware of the problem. Many tell me that the company that creates an easy-to-deploy/use solution (maybe vertical, industry-specific solutions?) will reap big rewards. They're all putting a lot of R&D and marketing muscle behind these efforts.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
