“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.” __ Bill gates
The history of Information technology takes us back to the mid-19th century when the first digital computer was invented in the US. The ‘Mark 1’ was created by the University of Harvard that imposed a significant mark all across the globe and further led to significant advances. Back then, these innovations were confined to their own arena of technology. But with the rolling of years, the innovations, advances, and tools of information technology like the Artificial Intelligence, Automation, Machine Learning, Geotargeting, etc. have come forward to significantly contribute to the arena of business management and administration. Everybody knows how robotics and AI are making business chores and monotonous responsibilities much simpler, faster, and accurate than ever before. There are many other such instances where branches of information technology are spreading wide across the modern business industry. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the matter in this article below.
Understanding the interlink between IT and business management
Today, the notion that Information Technology is a firmly knitted facet of the business landscape simply cannot be questioned. Small to large scale organisations are aiming to accomplish intricate to complex goals with the help of advanced information technology strategies. The IT initiatives are significantly backing modern business goals to deliver the ideal channels and contexts for organisations to fluently achieve success, which otherwise would not have been feasible.
Corporates are now setting their objectives as per the possibilities of the IT implementation plans and suitable resources. The modern corporates are significantly emphasising on the IT management system to analyse productivity and attain a more realistic ideology of what can be done. For instance, if the goal of the company is to enhance their customer service, they can resort to IT strategies for attaining customer satisfaction with the help of advanced technological support and features. This indicates how well the IT strategies and business objectives meet at an intersection point to back one another and drive maximum business prospects for the long run.
