IT?

IT is an acronym for “Information Technology”; it can and has gone by other monikers as ICT (Information and Communications Technology), IS (Information Systems), and MIS (Management Information Systems).

So what is Information Technology and what is an IT manager?

Well, those definitions are changing, particularly due to The Cloud. Many see IT’s future in The Cloud.

The function will also vary significantly depending on whether it serves a small or medium-size business (SMB), a corporate entity with centralized IT management or a decentralized IT, and whether it has regulatory requirements.
