There are several ways of reading this. Could be a clear sign of a big tech bubble. Or a more interesting take: that software engineering – considered by most regular companies as a commodity – is being valued on the same level as business and management. $10 million is a lot of money either way, but I think the reaction from people more stems from whom is getting paid that sum. Well paid executives in management is hardly news.

Edit: I know that an SVP of Engineering is management too, but the point here was how the area as a whole was valued.
