In a brief crash course in the fundamentals of Information Technology, Security, Program Management, and Data Science, we'll take you through everything you need to know to jump start your career in Information Technology. While most books aim to spend 300 - 600 pages illustrating every nuanced management theory or technology without explaining how they fit into the larger picture, Understanding IT helps fill in those gaps. When used in conjunction with in-depth certification exam books, on the job training, or undergraduate class work, Understanding IT will help bring the "big picture" into focus.
- Not sure why learning about databases is important as a project manager, or not sure why an iOS developer needs to attend tedious meetings?
- Ever wonder why Security and Privacy play such an important role in the life of a systems administrator?
- Uncertain how answering telephones to help general users helps your company succeed?
- Confused about contemporary issues like SOPA, PIPA, or Net Neutrality?
If you've ever been uncertain about how everything fits together to develop a successful business model built on Information Technology, then Understanding IT is worth picking up. As a lightweight reference book, Understanding IT helps young or transitioning IT professionals gain a quick understanding of the industry, its challenges, and the roles that they will play.
