I don’t think statisticians are being entirely left out, I’d say the opposite is true. Aside from a statistics course in college, I was truly introduced to statistics through my experience as an investment analyst and fund manager. Here again, we used terms like performance analytics, but relied heavily on the methods of statistics. The CFA likes to term statistics as a part of a more comprehensive category called, “quantitative methods” in their exam curriculum. Now, I have taken from the experience and since moved on from investments (to some degree) to dabble in web development.
I have R programming history (the r-bloggers site brought me here), so I am excited to see packages like Shiny that bring html and JavaScript functionalities with R.

I believe statistics is getting more attention than ever before in history.
