The October 2012 issue of Harvard Business Review (focus on Big Data) has an article on the topic that makes for an interesting read (it proclaims that Data Scientist is likely to be sexiest job of the 21st century, you have to wonder what the sexiest job of the 20th century was).

It is always a good idea to see how the thinking on the topic has evolved over time. For this, I would recommend reading the 2009 article in NY Times on the increasing demand for Statisticians.
