Reason for Hire:
Computer and information systems managers, or information technology managers, are the guides that help organizations navigate the always-changing labyrinth that is modern technology. These all-important employees deliver short- and long-term visions for the companys technology needs and goals. Even though most IT managers have the technical chops to execute the various jobs of the workers they supervise, they are more likely to be caught in a meeting room than a server room. Coordinating technology-related matters with top executives, planning upgrades of existing software or hardware and negotiating with vendors for the service of current products or the purchase of new ones are all common tasks IT managers encounter. They need to additionally lead and motivate departments of people to meet the goals of the company. IT managers also install and upgrade an organizations computer system and protect the office network from hackers and malware. Therefore, we need a dynamic individual, with minimum 8-10 years of experience in implementing IT services in an organization with significant experience in managing systems, including ERP, CRM, Intranet and Websites.
