Is Data Science Too Easy?

From Forbes:
"Statistics, specifically, is concerned largely with methods for testing hypotheses using data; thus, before one can constructively use Hadoop or R, one needs to know statistics and know it well. Because, unlike statistics—which is concerned largely with testing the hypotheses and stops there—data science focuses on the implications of systematic departures from hypotheses (as evidenced by statistical tests) and the bigger conclusions we can make as a result of those departures."
