This difficulty comes not from the technical complexity of computer science with the skills to predict how IT department  functioning in the enterprise, can effectively fit into the functioning of the business by supplementing it or anticipating needs without creating unnecessary spending, processes or structures.

  • Defining the role and place of computing in the organization,
  • Implementation clear division of roles and responsibilities together with an indication on the competences,
