IT professionals' salaries are set to rise next year as UK firms invest in growing their talent pool, promoting digitisation across whole organisations. This will result in higher demand for IT pros with both technical and organisational skills.

That is according to recruitment specialist Robert Half's latest 2017 Salary Guide, which claims that salaries for top IT talent will continue to rise in 2017. The report states that 90 percent of IT directors struggle to find skilled professionals today, and are willing to pay a higher salary for those with the right expertise.

Next year should see growing demand for security engineers, front-end developers and networking engineers, with cloud technology and IT security remaining a priority for CIOs and senior IT leaders.

The report also claims that demand for agile development, support and maintenance will result in continued growth in devops in 2017 as 'businesses look for a leaner way of supporting applications'.
