In an IT management career, you’ll have one foot in technology and another in business.

Job description. “Computer and information systems managers” is an IT management job category that covers a lot of ground. Mid-level computer information systems managers may oversee the day-to-day operation of specific functions, such as database administration or IT security. Upper-level computer information systems managers may have more strategic roles, helping to shape business goals or business decision-making through the use of technology.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the industry sectors that employed the most IT managers in this category in 2020 included computer systems design, information, finance and insurance, management, and manufacturing.

Read everything you need to know about how to become a computer and information systems manager.

Description: Failure rates in IT projects are high—recent estimates range anywhere from 14%i to over 50%ii. In order to prevent loss of time and money, organizations need project managers who can act as liaisons between business stakeholders and technical teams to ensure IT projects get off the ground within time and budget limits.

IT project managers fill this role, guiding projects from concept to plan to implementation. They develop budgets, identify resources, build teams, oversee development and implementation, and work with stakeholders to ensure the goals of the project continue to align with their needs.

According to O*Net Online, the top industries which employed IT project managers in 2020 were government and professional, scientific, and technical services.



Description: Computer systems analysts combine management analysis skills with IT analysis skills. They evaluate the technology needs of an organization based on its size, function and business goals. Computer systems analysts can work with an organization’s non-technical employees and its IT team to identify gaps in technology solutions and find opportunities to optimize the organization’s current IT infrastructure.

They then compile recommendations, describe options for new system components or software, and train or hire personnel. These recommendations will take into account an organization’s budget as well as its strategic goals.

Computer systems analysts may work as independent consultants as well as for organizations. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the top five industries employing computer systems analysts in 2020 included computer systems design, finance and insurance, management, information, and government.
