Description

INTRODUCTION

Businesses now operate in a rapidly evolving market and have become increasingly dependent on Business Information Technology to support them. In order to be effective, organizations have realized the importance of developing an IT strategy that fully supports the business strategy. Industry and Commerce have increased the use of modern technology, including telecommunications and computing. The demand for adaptable problem solvers with knowledge both of organizations and of information technology has grown. Business information technologists are those hybrid managers who can combine their understanding of the business function with knowledge of the concepts and techniques associated with applications of Information Technology (IT). If IT is to deliver business value, IT should be measured in core business terms---for example, customer satisfaction, revenue growth, and profitability. At a time when some corporations are reducing IT spending and once again looking at IT as a cost center, Institute of Management Education thought to bring together practitioners and thought leaders from industry, academia and Government for sharing and exchange of experiences, ideas and learning in the form of a National Conference on Information Technology and Competitive Dynamics (ITCDC’08), Which provided a good platform for all the stake holders. The overwhelming response has encouraged us to take up the mission forward and decided to organize Second Conference on ITCDC’09.
ITCDC’09 aims to discuss the role and importance of Managing Information Technology for Business Value. The prime objective would be to review the success of Information Technology and would focus on the applications and practices being followed in business. It also aims to highlight the business dynamics especially in the today’s scenario. Thus the conference would cover the diverse functional areas of business viz. Information System, Strategy, Marketing, Human Resources, Operations, Banking & Finance, Legal issues etc.
