Global Dimensión

Introduction

Changes in organizations and their environments, as well as ongoing development in information technology, are redefining business strategies. Ongoing innovation in processes, products and services is needed today more than ever, to transform business models and enhance competitiveness in global markets.

Organizations must find new ways to strategically manage information technologies (IT) to create the ability to rise to the new challenges and paradigms that help in ongoing value creation.  

In this new changing environment, IT managers must be regarded as information and knowledge managers, able to lead their organizations' transformation by incorporating innovative IT solutions.
