IT salary increases in 2017 indicate that IT professionals are in high demand – pushing IT salaries steadily higher.

IT salary levels are as solid as ever – in fact, IT paychecks are rising. As reported by the 2017 Robert Half Technology Salary Guide, “Our research shows employers are increasingly willing to negotiate pay rates.”

The reason for the employer’s willingness: IT talent is scarce. Qualified IT pros can demand top dollar in the salary negotiation process. “When in-demand candidates do enter the hiring market, they are often snapped up at lightning speed,” states the Robert Half report.

I’ve tracked IT salary numbers for about 10 years, and this scarcity has never changed. Sure, in the dark days after the 2008 financial meltdown, the salary increases got pretty slim, and in a few cases dipped into negative territory. But tech paychecks soon bounced back – and for some positions, like mobile developer, at an aggressive rate.

Moral of the story: a well-managed IT career remains among the most lucrative in the entire working world.

Some IT job titles are enjoying particularly strong demand this year. The Half report finds that the demand for project and consulting work is robust, even after several years on the upswing. The downside, of course, is that this strategy might close off some full time jobs. Contractors can be axed with the stroke of an email. However, 20 percent of CIOs say they hire contractors as a way to evaluate staffers prior to hiring them full time.

Other jobs in demand are Web, software and mobile apps developers; business intelligence analysts (this job title should grow strongly in the next several years); database administrators; and system engineers and system administrator. Also in demand: help desk and desktop support pros. Given how challenged the non-tech staff is when dealing with their computers – “how do I turn it on?” – the need for help desk pros is a constant.
