Who is “part mathematician, part computer scientist, and part trend-spotter” and straddles business and IT to solve complex business problems by analyzing scads of data?

No wonder their job has been named the sexiest of the 21st century. And it’s a job desperately needing new talent in the region surrounding Montgomery College.
