Description

IT management and staff are called upon to perform the almost-impossible tasks of evaluating, purchasing, integrating, and maintaining complex IT systems, and directing these systems to meet the ever-changing goals of an organization. Add to that the spending restraints of a down economy, and IT managers find themselves in need of a thoughtful, real-world guide that can maximize resources and bring efficiency to often chaotic environments.

IS Management Handbook, Eighth Edition details how IT professionals can align people, information, and technology with the strategic goals of an organization. The handbook offers technical and business insight from dozens of leading names from the technology sector, with a major focus on maximizing the performance of existing resources during tough economic times.

The handbook provides the information that allows IT managers to effectively organize people and processes, and efficiently integrate and maintain infrastructure, applications, support systems, e-business tools, and databases.
