All jobs for the CEO - right?
These days it’s just as likely that these roles are part of the role assigned to the IT department, whether the IT is managed internally or externally.
As an IT manager or consultant you effectively manage a business within a business that has the same profile as any other profit-focused organisation. So the same rules apply: deliver more business while reducing costs and maintaining compliance with corporate and government policies.
As small businesses grow, it is often the IT requirements of that company that fall behind. Ask any IT manager and his or her primary pain point will be the manual collection of financial data that can be scattered across numerous departments.
Not only is time consuming, and costly, it can lead to mistakes. A scattergun approach to data collection also makes it difficult to get an overview of the financial health of an organisation - something the CEO, CFO and other managers all need and want, often straight away.
More than any other manager in a company, the IT manager needs centralised access to a range of data, including data on services, clients, business processes, applications, assets, staff, vendors, customers etc.

Upgrading to EXO Business (formally MYOB Exonet) has allowed Outward Bound to focus on its own developement – not just the personal development of the many New Zealanders taking part in one of its many fantastic outdoor courses. “It allows management more time to spend actually analysing and implementing new systems rather than getting bogged down in day-to-day financial matters.”
