Share Article

Two former IT managers with over 40 years’ combined experience in banking within the City of London have launched a one-day intensive course Managing IT for Business offering insights into how IT can be used strategically to further your organisational success.

Managing IT for Business is a course aimed at business leaders who are responsible for, or concerned about, the way their company uses its IT resources. It is also suitable for IT managers who need to understand how they can integrate IT into their organisation more effectively.

While many companies now understand the need for an IT strategy, too many either depend on IT managers to produce this in isolation, or allow it to be dictated by finance or another department and imposed on IT. IT managers are trained in IT but not necessarily in management yet most are expected to manage a vital part of the organisation’s business.

Regulatory changes, data privacy laws and other legal requirements mean that firms can’t afford to make mistakes with their data retrieval and storage.

Everyone knows that IT can improve their business performance and Managing IT for Business can help achieve that objective.

The course covers:

  •     Compliance and risk
  •     Policy and controls
  •     Business continuity and disaster recovery
  •     Interaction between the organisation and IT
  •     Staff, personnel and recruitment
  •     Systems security
  •     Outsourcing and managed services

There is an opportunity for delegates to network with others facing the similar issues.

Courses take place every month at central locations in the City of London. Each session caters for between 8 and 16 delegates.
