The document lists the compensation levels of a number of IT functions - from head of IT to junior java developer - and day rates for contractors.
The overall picture for salaried staff is one of increasing levels. The most significant increases are for developers and analysts. These candidates are in demand and the supply of good ones, particularly with banking experience, is relatively low.
