Global ITAM salaries rise 13.3%, female salaries growing quicker – community survey reveals

ITAM Salaries

I’ll share more insights and data from the survey over the coming months – including sharing full details and hosting an interactive discussion on salary trends at our USA and Australian conferences.

A salary survey conducted back in March this year reveals that salaries for ITAM Review readers across the globe have risen 13.34% since 2014.

Thanks to the 352 respondents that took the time to provide their feedback for the 2017 ITAM Review salary survey.

The survey delved into recruitment trends, career satisfaction for ITAM Review readers and of course the crucial topic of salaries.

Women in ITAM

32% of survey respondents were female. Compare this to 26% of the US workforce in a professional computing occupation according to the national center for women and IT, or 30% of women working in 11 of world’s largest tech companies.

So whilst ITAM gender balance might be on a par with other IT professions, we still have a while to go given the size of the female workforce (59% of the US labour force are women and 46% in the EU).

Female ITAM salaries growing quicker

The global average salary from the survey was £62,219, up 13.34% from 2014. Global inflation since 2014 has been roughly 3% so ITAM salaries are outstripping inflation by quite a margin, but I’m not sure how this compares to average IT salary growth, I would be interested to hear from anyone that has data or experience to share on this.

In the last three years female salaries have grown quicker (16.69% for female versus 10.43% for male). The highest salary averages were recorded for USA, Australia, the Netherlands and Germany (see table below).
