IT management is gaining on it’s meaning and it’s getting more and more functions. But not many people know what exactly are IT management functions. More or less people just think: “IT management, ok, they fix computers…” ; but they are as wrong as they could be. Fixing computers is not IT management function at all! Well maybe in small companies it is, but IT management has so many other important business functions. Let’s take a look at what are IT management functions.
Let’s ask ourselves what does IT management actually stands for. IT means information technology and management means leading/board who runs the company. So IT management is actually management of IT department so leaders for IT department.
Ok so what are IT management functions… IT management has to make sure that IT works as good as possible. IT has to take care of communication inside a company. IT management needs to make sure that everything connected with information technology runs well.
The main IT management function is to keep track of new technologies that come out and try to find out how could they help the company to work better. Then they need to implement it into the company and educate people to learn to use them. So one of important functions of IT management is educating other employees.
IT management has more and more functions every day as the IT field of work grows. We believe that IT management will soon be a part of “leading board” because more and more business is done over information technologies so the executive management will need to have IT managements to support and help them. And here is another IT management function, that is support to executive management.
Now I could go on and on and I still could not wrote down all functions of IT management. I hope you got a brief idea on what IT management does.
