Module contents

The employment of information technologies for enterprises is usually a key factor. By the change of our society to an information society, information gains more and more importance and takes a central role within ICT systems. The specifics of the ICT area cannot be supported by the classical economic controlling. The application of a strategical IT-Controlling becomes more and more important. The result of a study shows that in the meantime in about 80% of the German enterprises an ICT strategy was compiled. However, the study makes also clear, that about two out of three enterprises use no methods of strategical IT-Controlling. The new discipline of IT-Controlling provides plans and methods to avoid isolated applications.
