A data science consultant can help your organization in many ways. Some data science consultants jump in and help on urgent projects. Others might perform research tasks that are not urgent, but are important for long term organizational growth. Training is another role of some data science consultants - organizations often bring in a data science consultant to bring their staff up to speed on cutting edge technologies.
Data scientists can do different things depending on their particular area of focus. A good portion of a data scientist's role is focused on obtaining and cleaning data - connecting to all the data stores available to an organization and also looking outside the organization for interesting data sets. Some other portion might involve what is called "feature engineering" - figuring out new ways to combine data to provide the best inputs for machine learning models. This article goes into more detail on what data scientists do day to day.
A data science consultant will use many different types of tools depending on the task. For exploratory data analysis many data scientists use python and jupyter notebooks with extensions such as Seaborn for data visualization. If relational databases are part of the project then a firm understanding of Structured Query Language (SQL) is important. Data-visualization heavy consultants might make use of Power BI or Tableau for data display and distribution.
While some data science consultants specialize in machine learning, building machine learning models is a very small subset of the work most data scientists perform. The vast majority of time spent in data science projects is spent in obtaining and cleaning data and preparing it for visualization for organizational stakeholders.
This depends largely on the complexity of your organization's structure and business processes. For projects that do not require a lot of domain expertise a consultant may come up to speed relatively quickly, but for more complicated domains the rampup time is more significant. Data scientists are able to come up to speed more quickly when they are given regular access to organizational domain experts.
