    With this post, I am continuing the series on who does what job in IT and what their job titles are. So far, I have explored the categories of project manager, IT specialist and IT architect. There is a large number of IT jobs in these categories. However, the job types and specializations are much broader. The content of this post is a job sample I composed using a significant number of openings from commercial employment search sites. Let’s explore some job types and specializations.

    With this post, I am starting a new series on who does what job in IT and what their job titles are. You probably agree with me that there’s a fair amount of abstraction in job titles. I am focusing on the titles and the duties that come with them. Lets explore this.

In this post, I want to explore trends in context.

    Why IT Projects Fail

    With this post, I am starting a series on IT project management. I like to revisit project management every couple of years because it’s a discipline that changes because the world around IT changes—artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, microservices, APIs and new generations of workers to name a few.

    The Significance of Cybersecurity

    This week, I am concluding this series on important dimensions of IT. I chose to finish this series on a pressing issue of cybercrime, which is a significant problem with the global cost estimated at $600 billion annually. This is a troublesome figure that corresponds to 0.8 percent of the global GDP. The foil to cybercrime is cybersecurity—the protection of internet-connected systems including hardware, software and data from cyberattacks. Let me discuss in more detail.

    The Significance of Technology Change and IT Innovation

    This week, I am continuing this series on important ideas that have helped to shape IT in the modern era. Technology change, that force that moves technology forward, is one of those very powerful momentums in IT.
