CHALLENGES IT MANAGER'S FACE
Today business is running like treadmill in term of workflow, process, responsibility and annual turnover.
Changing technology, language and requirement of the organization are eating all IT employees head. Pressure is on the peak which needs to be fulfilled if you want to justify your performance.
It is rightly said, justifying your designation is like eating hot Dumplings, due to official routine mental status is really in shivering stage as the contrast of Technology, User- System, rising cost, Team Alliance, Social Awareness and Data Security really makes a difference.
After analyzing every concern seriously, I would like to address each category in detail-
Roller Coaster Technology-
New Technologies are knocking IT industry like a speedy wave, thousands of IT manager are facing the same concern to adopt the changes happening in technology with a strong base of understanding by making a beneficial plan which ends up building the organization with productive results.
Adapt User Behavior-
It is most vital to be aware of the user choice and work on the same so that every customer should recognize the brand.
Due to layout, credibility, and features desktop has been replaced by smartphones and tablets. It has become mandatory for the IT manager to create a Mobile Application with all the responsive feature and layout that will serve comfort to the end user.
An organization always look forward to an opportunity where the investment is low, but the results are high.
It is mandatory for IT manager to work on the focused activities that will generate revenue to the company and cut the edges of all the eliminated functions by doing full-proof research.
Team alignment is as important as key to a lock. IT manager is responsible to create a full-fledged team by making the best out of them.IT manager is a screw to fit all the nuts in the right position where they can show their effort more aggressively. Team management and focus on every individual is the key accountability on IT manager as any bug in the technical team would be lost for the whole organization.
Being social is the trendiest hashtag of 2018, as of whether it is an individual, a family, an MNC corporation, a politician or a start-up company. Everybody is using social roads like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. to participate in the various conversation and bringing difference accordingly. High-jump of IT managers in those conversations is mandatory as they’ll notice some of the negative facts on marketing, customer service and technical update and will focus on those issues to raise the brand in the market.
Data security directly propagate IT manager-
An IT manager needs to keep a check on high-end information which need to be secured. Any leakage in data-flow will be blame to an IT manager and they must suffer due to that. Data security works like a Job security to them.
Key Responsibilities of an IT manager are getting rougher along with the movement of the clock. They need to prepare themselves for every up and down in the graph of organization, whether it is related to changing technology, achieving a stretch goal, commanding the productive team or responding to critical situation all these are the hot moves that every IT manager must play in the right situation and at right time to gain revenue and marketing awareness by giving check-mate to other competitors.
So, be ready guys as your appraisal depends upon your every single move.
