Engineering Manager

Summary

Software is a crucial factor in reducing costs and adapting today’s evolving market demands, which is characterized by global competition, rapid communications, streamlined production and supply chain operations. Change is inevitable, and managing the complexity of change in today’s IT environment can be very costly, especially for companies handling expensive enterprise-type applications.

Engineering managers need to identify business and technical drivers, and find the best tools available to meet the competing demands for reduced costs and improved quality. A company that undergoes technology adoption needs to ensure orderly and effective transformation. To do this, managers need more visibility and control to use IT fully and serve the enterprise, thus driving business innovation towards renewed growth. To gain full control and to fully assess organizational IT needs, engineering managers need an overview of all their distributed resources.
