Thank you to everyone that participated in the reader survey last month.

I’m pleased to share the results below based on 233 participants.

Key talking points

  • Growing integration with ITSM away from finance
  • Clear gender divide in average salaries and significant differences by type of company and country
  • Experience in the field wins
  • Software licensing and SAM are key worldwide hiring priorities
  • Skills shortage – it is taking time to fill roles
  • IAITAM most popular qualification or certification

  1. How can I get a copy of the 2014 Salary Survey Results emailed to me?

  2. Kris Wong says:

    Awesome data and information for this industry. It is interesting that the data suggests that the ITAM/SAM/LM discipline is a pragmatic one more driven from experience than from theory learnt in University or College.

    If you segment only Europe and North america is that the same?
