Along with the gender pay gap, the survey showed that the salaries of IT integrators were on a par with in-house SAP professionals. But SAP application directors working for integrators generally earned 70% more than in-house SAP application directors.
Businesses running SAP ERP 6.0 paid higher salaries than those running older versions, according to the survey, although most respondents did not receive a salary rise in 2009. Furthermore, less than half of the people who participated in the survey said they received an annual bonus in 2009.
