16 analytic disciplines compared to data science

What are the differences between data science, data mining, machine learning, statistics, operations research, and so on?

Here the author of the post compares several analytic disciplines that overlap, to explain the differences and common denominators. Sometimes differences exist for nothing else other than historical reasons. Sometimes the differences are real and subtle. He also provided typical job titles, types of analyses, and industries traditionally attached to each discipline.
