Who Needs IT Management Manual of IT Policies and Procedures?
The need to review information technology (IT) management concepts—the background, structure, IT standards and IT definitions—is greater now than it ever was and will continue to be so. Information technology solutions have become more robust, more specialized, and more varied with time. The rapid pace change continues, despite predictions over a decade ago that “ Moore ’s Law” had run its course.
This Computer, Network and IT Policies and Procedures Manual allows IT Managers, IT departments and IT executives to develop their own unique IT policy and procedures.
IT Management Background
Computer and Information Technology has a come a long way in the last two decades. Only twenty years ago, small- to medium-sized businesses had a limited number of hardware and software choices and practically all data proccessing was done in “batch mode.” Users did not immediately have direct access to raw data stored on the computer; instead, they received periodic reports, like monthly sales by region.
By the mid-1980’s, personal computers (PC) were gaining wide acceptance. The first business applications for PCs were either spreadsheet or word processing. More users demading changes, resulted in rapid improvements in applications and networking capabilities. Better processors, applications, and operating systems meant fewer users needed to be technologically savvy to use them. Sophisticated networks and, later, the Internet allowed greater volumes of data to be acquired, strored and shared across boundaries than ever before.
Unfortunately, information technology changes have not automatically led to changes in the way users work with data, or with one another. Connectivity has not guaranteed collaboration or unity of purpose. Acquiring information technologies and computer applications, which began as as a departmental exercise, still remains a fragmented process in many organizations. Little consideration is given to whether the company’s business strategy is driving its IT capabilities, and not the other way around
Some organizations have begun to recognize the benefits of the long-term, customer oriented approach to systems development. By embracing the quality concepts propogated by the likes of W. Edwards Deming and Joseph Juran, decision makers are taking organization-wide approach to develop their “Strategic Plan.” They are looking at ways to improve their business processes and using that information to drive the technology.
