I Am Not an Accountant...!

About this talk

Most people in IT entered the profession due to their interest and proficiency in technology. Not yet many IT practitioners set out to be accountants or marketers – although we constantly send out messages that state the need for skills in these areas. There are more and more examples of accountants (or people from an accountancy, financial and other backgrounds) working in IT and there is a real need for commercial and financial skills and experience in this area. The changing role and position of technology, the growth of managed services and the emergence of SIAM (Service Integration and Management) are driving the need for a new set of capabilities and competencies in IT and the management of technology. Clearly this presents a number of challenges for IT organisations and professionals alike – many of whom do not see themselves as being ‘bean counters’ or accountants… This session examines the following: What are the new challenges for IT? What skills are needed? What roles and responsibilities are required? How can ‘traditional’ IT people and enterprise IT organisations adapt to meet these challenges? What does the IT industry and e.g. enterprise of the future look like?
