Re: More on salary
Very interesting and informing article...thanks so much.  I am ready to make the transisition from nonprofit IT to corporate America...it appears that it's difficult due to me not having any certifications. Can someone comment on the best strategy to making the transition:?

 

Currently, I am studying for my PMP certification with anticipation of having it by April 30.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
The report did not mention Hadoop as one of it's most profitable skills. For the Data/Database Administration section, top skills were: Microsoft SQL Server database skills (add 10% to starting salaries), Oracle database skills (9%), and IBM DB2 database skills (4%). This group of IT roles did see some of the highest bumps in salary for certain titles: BI analyst (7.4%), data architect (7.2%), and database developer (6.5%), for example, and most of the job descriptions included the expected big data skillset. It'll be interesting to see how this category evolves next year.

Where's Hadoop?
No mention of Hadoop or other big data skills. Does R. Half break out big data / data science jobs separately from IT?

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
