CIO Magazine today has an article on the "6 Hottest New Jobs in IT" in which features Data Science and R at #2: 

"There's now an intellectual consensus in business that the only way to run an enterprise is to use analytics with data scientists to find opportunities," says Norman Nie, CEO of Revolution Analytics, which produces the first commercial application to bring the R data analysis programming language into the business world. Because of the immense opportunity for strategic insight buried in all that data, says Nie, "corporations now have an unlimited demand for people with background in quantitative analysis."

In addition to Data Science, the other five hot jobs are: Business architect, Social media architect, Mobile technology expert, Enterprise mobile developer, and Cloud architect. Follow the link below for the complete story.
