IT Management and Development


The IT management and development business area focuses on developing the tools and resources required to understand, use, and manage IT infrastructure in order to help companies enhance their operational, tactical, and strategic capabilities. Tools for IT management and development can help companies control and measure the quality and effectiveness of their IT infrastructures, and manage software and hardware development tasks.

Challenges related to IT management and development revolve around the need for continuous research to improve products and technologies; the need to improve business and service models to increase return on investment (ROI); and, if necessary, the need to outsource IT management and development to nearshore and offshore destinations.
