The role of Information Technology (IT) is shifting from a technical, specialist function to a vital one that shapes and supports every facet of business operations. IT began its roots as a back-office support function to Accounting/Finance, but has long evolved into a strategic resource coordinated to support business strategies while shaping future options and directions. Successful companies differentiate themselves by their ability to position the power of technology to design ways to outperform their competitors. Successful business managers recognize IT as a strategic resource and have the primary responsibility for specifying IT roles as part of the overall business capabilities.
