Data Dairy Farmer

So Milk comes from a cow.

And the farmer milks the milk.

To sell to a supermarket.

To be consumed by the customer.

So who owns the Milk?

It depends.

So data is stored in a Database.

Which is pulled by a Business Intelligence professional, or Self Service BI user.

Which gets into a report, dispersed for management.

So who owns the Data?

It depends.

The cow may produce the Milk, as a Database Administrator stores the Data.

But they don't own the product.

They release it into the world.

For consumption.

Milk feeds the people.

Data feeds the users.

I'd say data growth is taking off.

So choose your new career, be a Data Dairy Farmer, and Milk that Data.

And so it goes!
