This paper has the purpose of discussing management of information technology (IT) in organizations from a theoretical point of view. Understanding the value that information technology can bring to corporations and therefore management and leadership of IT assets is a very important management aspect as information technology is becoming a key source of competitive advantage for small and big companies alike. However, the barriers that small and medium size enterprises face and the benefits they gain from IT are different then those faced by large corporations. Therefore the paper distinguishes between the models that can be used by large corporations to manage IT and the barriers that small and medium enterprises face in adopting IT. Finally the paper very shortly discusses implications of management of IT for outsourcing decisions.
