LONDON, UK: The biggest salary increases for IT professionals are for roles that demand specific experience in big data analytics; e-commerce and mobile; and IT security. Salaries for all those roles will rise by 4 per cent or more between 2013 and 2014, – outpacing the average UK salary rise rate of 2.5 per cent , according to the Robert Half Technology 2014 Salary Guide1.

Directors are already reporting IT skills shortages and challenges in finding IT professionals, particularly in software/applications development, infrastructure, cloud technology and security.
