Okay so that's not exactly what the article says but close enough.
The most recent issue of Harvard Business Review published an article titled "Data Scientist: The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century". Well worth the read as it talks about how data scientists are the hot new job because there is high demand and not many of them out there. It also discusses the combination of skills that are needed, the companies that are recruiting for them and how they're being used. The are some interesting comments, as well.
