Analogy between a whisky distillery and data management
The similitudes don't typically jump out, do they? But you'll quickly see the point.
On one side, in a whisky distillery we have engineers who build the tubings and alembics and such (the containers), and biologists who are in charge of taking care of the many processes leading to the final product (the content). It's all about measuring the quality and tasting.
Once bottled, the blend of whisky goes to meet the world (and be enjoyed by happy consumers).
