The “2012 IT Salary Report” from Computer Economics holds some good news for mobile developers. While the average IT worker will see pay increases of 2.8 percent this year, mobile devs could see much larger salary increases.
“Developers with skills in mobile app development will remain in tight supply, as will those with experience in supporting infrastructure virtualization,” the report said. “In the IT world, there are always skill shortages in the growth technologies, and many IT organizations have no choice but pay up for those skills or turn to service providers for in-demand expertise — and pay a premium.”
The report also predicts that IT turnover rates with return to normal — about 5 percent — this year. That could also put pressure on managers to increase salaries in order to retain valued workers.
