Mainframes are where it’s at, survey finds

Published on .

Irvine, Calif.--Demand remains strong for information technology executives who have mainframe or Unix experience, according to a report released late Tuesday by Enterprise Systems magazine. Linda Briggs, editorial director, said hiring has dropped for most IT employees, but there continues to be healthy demand for expertise in data warehouse, e-commerce site development and customer relationship management computer services delivered via mainframes and Unix servers. IT professionals in charge of supply-chain management applications make about 21% more than most IT executives, the report said. CIOs at companies with 100 employees or fewer make about 11% less than average, while CIOs at the largest companies can expect to make about 37% more than average, the report said.
