Information Systems Management
At its best, information technology is less about hardware, software, and networks than helping
organizations achieve their business goals. As providers of information services work to align their
IT investments and processes with their business model, they must make difficult decisions. Which
investments yield true business value, and which don’t? What changes must be made to bring
governance, processes, and frameworks to best-practice levels? What does the business require to meet
With demand for information services frequently outpacing availability, it’s more important
than ever to ensure people and assets are sharply focused on reaching corporate goals. But
since few IT operations are fully integrated, it’s difficult to see how activities in different areas
are interrelated, and how these activities affect business value. And with the rise of trends
like outsourcing and off shoring, many IT activities are taking place outside a company’s four
walls—sometimes successfully and sometimes with dismal results.
