[TW] IT documents, audit and leaders

IT documents comes with different names such as the following: - Manual or handbook, - Policies and procedures, - Management systems, - Project plans. In the real world we have various names with unique descriptions and purposes when in fact they could be made to do a uniform direction for which actions are based for the entire IT initiatives, probably the longest in IT lifecycle is operation. The problem is our inclination on something else which is wrong. IT remains an IT area. Business remains a business area. The same problem is carried out when we conduct IT audit. Most audit are missing the gists in which IT is being used by businesses. We once said that an effective IT audit is conducted by IT people themselves but there is something wrong with that even. Business and accounting people have been doing it with a different bias and preconceived notions which doesn't make the cut for IT direction and audit respectively. Leaders play the same game and so the problem continues an

The IT Practice

It was electronics, next computers--then functions and uses came up from everywhere--and there were personal computers, servers, connectivity, business applications, information, analytics, artificial intelligence including smart machines and not ending with smart cities. What have you?
 
Take everything, and eliminate your biases of a certain product, if you are or will be gearing into IT Practice. Imagine high technology companies, these are the technology manufacturers themselves and create another businesses within it, that tries to compartment their people to deal only in a very specific technology or product. They are creating a team or their people to be limited of the extensions required for a technology to be even more useful with existing systems for the sake of their customers. Begin by learning the bits-and-ticks of both the business and IT. If already a practitioner then extend the learning either if not both of these areas. For business, observe and take things that matter with the realities of IT or simply for computing and automation purposes. Don't try to filter information. Be liberated as this is discuss to people, whoever they are, may be it’s the boss or colleagues. For IT must be for everyone, end-users including practitioners must also realize that it will make their lives easier. Not only the few that made IT available now. Not only for scientists and engineers that created as well as Europeans and Americans that invented early electronic devices that made up the computers and connectivity that we very well know facilitating our work beginning decades ago. Thanks to the market these technologies will continue to take advantage of our businesses and activities to advance further the opportunity of information technology--the sprawling technological extensions it created--and practice behind it. It is also for all the governments, businesses and individuals, now more than obvious with social media. Unfortunately, the experience is a stark contrast to social media and not so with our own business-computing or enterprise systems. Together the stakeholders continue to bring the technology to a greater heights and enable more opportunities for people regardless of their business and activity. It shortens the path to, and delivers fast on, communication. Provides better business facilities and smarter market insights. Makes life easier at the workplace. Contributes savings for the business and the people.
 
The practice in IT is not at all viewed the same way. Practitioners especially have their own specialization which then create wrong impression for their contribution in their company if they are given the chance or try to cover other or broader responsibilities. Just like other disciplines, these are known experts in their industries even regulators, but then caused enough to the past economic collapses. Nowadays, many businesses are not still definitive of their need with IT. Take that as an example why companies, local ones especially, couldn't even establish their basic technology platform.
 
IT and the practice itself is hard core on computing, information, connectivity and enterprise system—enables the technology to fit with the need of the business. The goal, how it was acquired, implemented and managed (AIM) makes the business and activity different from the crowd of technology adapters. These are those who simply copy what their counterparts are doing simply by paying a little bit more for a prospective employee to jump ship. A scenario that cannot be denied. Companies really lives within their industry they merely replicate off-the-shelf solutions recommended for them by their loyal or accredited vendor. They work and missing just a bit. The productivity output is not also different from each other. It can be done better.

Expressed information is key

It must be a great deal, nowadays. Though, not easy to accomplish and as easy as we say it, not impossible to re/construct it considering all the resources being wasted and ruined unwittingly, as the most probable causes ever. Given that we always try hard to be understood every time. With the COVID19 onslaught, or in any manner of emergency cases, it is very important for people to know where to find authoritative information. Mostly, we go to our government and organization's websites, the almost permanent fixture of our public information. We tune in to press conference and telecommunications' alert messaging on behalf of, or directives from the government and, its customers. Sometimes, the news would find us. Governments, international organizations and multinational companies need to have a coordinated strategy how to dispatch information, which can be a guidance what needs to be done and anything special when it comes to the safety and welfare of everyone. Above all, cru
