Is Office 365's Growth Lowering Salaries of SharePoint and Exchange Experts?

Salaries for SharePoint developers and administrators have dropped 7 percent this year -- but they're still drawing six figures in pay.

As we pull together the forthcoming 2013 Redmond Salary Survey, which we'll publish in the coming weeks, the median compensation for SharePoint developers and administrators was $100,817, compared with $107,063 last year.

Likewise, the average salary of Exchange administrators was slightly less -- $87,569 versus $88,889 last year, a 1.5 percent decline. It begs the question, is the growth of Office 365 cutting into the earnings of those with SharePoint and Exchange expertise? To be sure, those who said they have Office 365 expertise also draw six-figure salaries.

The majority responding to this year's survey say the cloud is having either no impact or a positive effect on their salaries and careers. At the same time, as noted last week, a growing number of respondents are looking for new jobs.
