The earnings and expectations of Oracle EBS professionals depend on many variables other than financial market conditions, including the version they are working on, education level, and experience
Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
According to a new salary survey from Panaya, the majority of Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) professionals saw their salaries increase in 2011, and similar increases are expected for 2012. The survey results are based on 111 responses collected from Oracle EBS customers and systems integrators worldwide through an online questionnaire.
The survey shows that salary increases are more prevalent in some places than others. Just half (50%) of the Oracle EBS professionals working in Europe saw their salaries increase in 2011, compared with 61% in North America and as many as 72% in the rest of the world. Looking ahead to 2012, 58% of the respondents worldwide are expecting their salaries to go up.
Survey results suggest that professionals who keep up-to-date on the latest technology typically earn more than those that don’t. Professionals with Oracle certification earn 3% more than those with no certification and professionals working with R12 earn significantly more than respondents working with older releases, highlighting the benefits of working at organizations that utilize the latest technology.
Gender is also a factor determining salary levels. Women with up to six years of experience earn 6% less than men with similar experience. The gap grows to as much as 22% for professionals with 7-10 years of experience and 15% for those with more than ten years. A similar gender bias was found in Panaya’s salary survey of SAP professionals.
“The earnings and expectations of Oracle EBS professionals depend on many variables other than financial market conditions, including the version they are working on, education level, and experience,” said Amit Bendov, Panaya’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This survey should help these professionals compare their compensation to industry peers and get an insight into what drives compensation and how to increase their value in this market.”
