IT salary outlook, Bitcoin trends and cloud maturity

SearchCIO and its sister sites certainly didn’t slow down during the holiday season. Across all three sites — SearchCIO, SearchCIO-Midmarket and SearchCompliance — we’ve been turning out year-end content to prep IT leaders for 2014, our major focus being our annual IT Salary and Careers Survey.

The first salary story to hit the Web, compliments of Editorial Director Christina Torode, looked at the IT executive salary as well as their career and project ambitions.

Over the next few weeks, writers and editors across the TechTarget network will share salary results and career trends. While you wait for those, read Linda Tucci’s take on CIO earning potential and Nicole Laskowski’s story on top projects in 2014.

Other trending stories:

Salary trends aren’t the only developments on our mind. This week’s Data Mill by Nicole Laskowski looked at the Bitcoin phenomenon and recapped her trip to the MIT VC conference.

In the first part of this feature by Karen Goulart, CIOs and cloud experts suggest that 2014 will be the year when cloud really matures as the focus turns toward end-to-end solutions rather than the disjointed use of cloud solutions and services. The second part of this story looks at the maturation of Infrastructure as a Service, the importance of IT service catalogs and why cloud is no longer driven by cost.

We continue to share stories from the Global Direction 2013 conference. In this two-part video, Tucci talks to AIIM president John Mancini about legacy IT systems. In the second part, Mancini shares his views on the future of big data in the enterprise.

Future State is back, and asking, “Can application performance monitoring tools improve regulatory compliance?” In this column, SearchCompliance Site Editor Ben Cole explored the emerging use of application performance monitoring as a tool for regulatory compliance.

On SearchCIO-Midmarket, we looked at Boston’s technology strategy and planning process in what Managing Editor Rachel Lebeaux tags “an easy-to-follow keep-implement-dream format.” Along similar lines, learn how Renato Sogueco, CIO of the Society of American Florists, chose a different path when creating his company’s mobile device management policy.

Happy holidays!
