Information Technology Management deals with the exploration and understanding of Information Technology in improving the strategic and operational capabilities of an organization for designing and developing products and services for maximum customer satisfaction, corporate productivity, profitability and competitiveness. While the value creation for an organization depends on the relationships between internal and external environments, technology plays an important role in boosting the overall value chain of an organization. However, this improvement requires the business and technology management to work as a creative, synergistic, and collaborative team.
