IT knowledge boosts career

IT Professionals should display broad knowledge and understanding of industry issues affecting their companies if they wish to make career progression, it has been claimed.

Nick Folkes, IT director and UK head of infrastructure and operations at Tesco said staff needed to be able to apply technology skills and experiences to problem solving tasks in the workplace in order to press their case for promotion, reports Computer Weekly.

He said it was critical for would-be IT bosses to be able to explain the benefits of technology systems at interview, claiming this would provide a candidate with an advantage over others with purely technical skills and knowledge.

"IT managers should be able to explain how a change in an IT system effects a change in a business process and show how it can lead to a cost saving," he said.

He added that IT teams within his organisation were constantly liaising with those working on the retail side to drive the business forward.

Supermarket giant Tesco describes itself as "one of the world's leading international retailers".
