When you look at IT staff compensation by job functions, a few emerging categories top the list: wireless infrastructure, cloud computing, and Web security. (All those have low bases of respondents, so take the numbers with a grain of salt.) But notable are two stalwarts--ERP and enterprise app integration. These have been among the top functions for the decade-plus we've done our survey.
