But IT departments work non-stop and constantly receive queries and stakeholder demands, so multitasking from one issue to another, while attempting to pay close attention to new trends, can often be a challenge. The lack of resources and strain on this department could lead to lower productivity levels, high turnover and be detrimental to the infrastructure of the business. Therefore, it’s crucial to understand the biggest challenges IT faces.
Additionally, it’s important to know and understand what the current IT trends are in order to plan ahead and create strategies for implementation. Understanding the current state of IT and how other companies are handling similar issues can be crucial in showing stakeholders what needs to be addressed for IT to cope with the high demands and future growth.
