Companies in every industry are endeavoring to become more data-driven. To that end, they need people with data architecture skills. These are people who can understand the complex relationships among databases, applications and systems, and design new ways to store and manage data. People with data architecture skills may actually have the title "data architect" or they may work as database administrators, database managers, application developers, data scientists, project managers or even business analysts.

According to the Robert Half Technology 2019 Salary Guide for Technology Professionals, salaries for data architects in the United States range from $111,500 in the 25th percentile to $187,750 in the 95th percentile. Those in the 50th percentile earn $133,500.
