CSI, SPJIMR offer IT Management course for executives


Computer Society of India, (CSI) Mumbai Chapter and SP Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR) have come together to offer a unique and innovative course in Information Technology Management for executives. Explaining the objectives of the program, K C Shashidhar, Hon Chairman, IT Education Program, CSI, Mumbai stated that the course is designed to help build conceptual base and to develop skills in IT Management function amongst business executives and IT professionals.

In the decision-making process relating to IT investments, both IT as well as business executives play an important role. Also, the buzzword in corporates today is effective utilisation of IT for business advantage.

There is an increasing tendency to consider IT investment decisions based on business considerations, rather than technological considerations alone. In the end, the CEO’s question is: “In what way will IT infrastructure investment help improve the business (profits) of the company?” Keeping these facts in mind the course emphasises on development of managerial perspective with respect to IT and includes various modules relating to software, IT infrastructure and services, advanced managerial skills and corporate information management.

Shashidhar adds, “It will train the participants to understand IT investment and management in its right business perspective and in a manner that will convince and help the CEO to take proper IT decisions with a view to make full use of IT investment for business advantage”.

Srinivas Eranki, President of CSI, Mumbai Chapter emphasises the need and importance to impart training to executives by academicians as well as senior CEO/CIO colleagues from the field. “The program will be conducted by the internal faculty of SPJIMR as well as CEOs and practicing CIOs. It will benefit from the resources of over 100 leading CIOs through the CIO Club of CSI, Mumbai,” he says.

Prof V K Garg, Professor in Information Management at SPJIMR, who has wide experience in both academic and corporate world, says that a unique feature of the program is that successful candidates will be awarded an Executive Diploma in Information Technology Management, which will be jointly awarded by CSI and SPJIMR. It will add value to the present/ aspiring CIOs and business executives in taking up greater responsibilities.

Giving details of the program, Prof Garg who has authored many books on IT, indicated that there are four modules - viz. Overview, Technology, Management and Current Scenario & Emerging Trends in IT.
