Re: Where's Hadoop?
I guess it would depend on the scope of the project.  I see a lot of projects that look IT based but they are more sales or operational.  PMs are hard to place some times.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
Well what do think about project management? Does it relate with IT or is it a separate area from IT.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
Though it's still relatively new, I'd wager we see it there next year.

Re: More on salary
I understand that's why I want out of it...the work is meaningful..but this sector is permeated with old ideas and the lack of understanding of why you should always look for better processes through technology.

Re: More on salary
I am ready to make the transition from nonprofit IT to corporate America
I can't help you out with the transition, but if you are in the business of making money, get out of the non-profits ASAP.
I used to do some the IT jobs that the article mentions in one, for less than an employee of Walmart makes; which was sad indeed.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
Big data is still a bit of an outsider as far as "mainstream" IT positions/responsibilities go.  I suspect there isn't enough information out there to accurately track the salary trends there.  Even if there was I think it might sting a little to see what the salaries actually are because I'm reading more and more about big data in research fields that aren't very high paying industries in general.  It will take some time for the big data jobs to show up on the radar.

System admin, bye; greetings virtualization admin.
System administrator is supposed to be getting replaced by virtualization administrator, but I don't see any evidence of that here. The ranks of the later are growing rapidly. Responsibllity for one server or a set of servers isn't cutting it any more.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
There's always some hot skill to chase in IT. But there's a reason "architect" has for a decade stayed atop the staff job titles of the IW salary survey, because it demands skills and perspective across skill areas. I'm hearing that architect demand only rise among IT leaders driving digital business initiatives.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
I'd be curious to know the ratio of average CEO pay to the highest paying IT salaries.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
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.
