Technology management professionals, such as IT managers, help organizations assess and implement short and long-term tech needs. This can include software, hardware, and telecommunications. They provide executive guidance on how to best use technology to help business operations run efficiently.
While technology managers possess the expertise to carry out specific IT-related tasks, they generally delegate these tasks and focus on supervision and larger initiatives.
Projects IT managers may oversee include:
- Data security
- Hardware and software upgrades
- Vendor selection and negotiation
