There's a war on to attract and retain business intelligence (BI) and information management (IM) professionals. That much is clear from the BI, analytics, and IM version of our annual InformationWeek IT Salary Survey, Big Data Widens Analytic Talent Gap.

Results are much the same in our 2012 survey, though the gap between management and staff salaries has widened. The median BI staff base salary is $90,000, up from $85,000 in 2011.
