earningsMyBroadband reports that its 2017 South African IT Salary Survey took place in July, with its results providing an accurate reflection of how much IT professionals and executives earn.  

The survey was completed by 3,062 South Africans who work in the IT sector, and included executives and professionals from large tech companies.  The results showed that the average salary for IT professionals and executives in SA in 2017 is R41,455 per month, which is an increase over the 2016 average of R35,184.  Considering the shortage of IT skills in SA, the increase was no surprise, but the impact of the struggling economy was visible in the feedback in that 30% of IT professionals said they did not receive a salary increase in 2017, and 41% did not receive a bonus last year.  The median annual salary increase among IT employees who did receive an increase was 10%.  This report also provides an overview of salaries (gross monthly value) for prominent IT professions.
