I don't give much credibility to anything I read on the InfoWorld site, even when they're quoting another source.

They're just cheerleaders for the latest IT fads, and shills for their advertisers.

Took me about 2 seconds on their site to find a perfect example of this:

Locally there does seem a shortage of ETL(SSIS) programmers.

Sometimes in order to achieve the big-bucks salaries you have to make sacrifices along the way. I know a couple of people who wanted to break in to the DBA profession from their previous jobs, and took a pay cut in order to do so to gain the necessary experience. They're now building up to the level where they could take on a more independent role and become contractors if they wished, and I imagine would be very successful at that level.

I think if you're willing to put in the graft, and are prepared to make some sacrifices along the way then it will pay dividends in the end. No one should expect to receive large salaries as a matter of course. You have to work for them!

As a BI developers with a few years experience I can't really complain about my salary. :-)
Usually when I take a salary survey, I end up above the average pay check for an IT professional my age and my experience.

But ssshhhht, don't tell my boss :-D

Very true. A little investment over time can pay itself back.

Whenever you can take your IT skills and apply them in a more direct way to helping the business either solve it's problems or identify and capitalize on new opportunities, then you are making yourself more valuable to the business.

BI is about doing those things. So it makes sense that the BI salaries are above average.

I'm in the same boat. I take their articles with a grain of salt or 10.
