Information Technology (IT) Software

Over the past decade, the IT department has evolved from what was traditionally seen as a support role (those guys who fixed a broken office printer) to a department that provides the technology, hardware, and software that allows a company to meet its strategic business goals.

The role of the IT specialist, from the CIO, to the systems administrators, to the support agents, has therefore become ever more crucial as businesses adopt more and more complex technology to help them get things done.


What is IT Software?

IT software includes a very broad range of software used by the information technology (IT) team to monitor, track, facilitate, and secure computing technology. By computing technology we mean the hardware, software, networks, and internet as well as the people and processes who use these technologies.

What are the types of IT Software?

There are a seemingly countless number of IT software, for the purpose of this article we will discuss the most common categories of IT software which include:

Who uses IT software?

Pretty much anyone in an organization uses IT software in one way or another. Logging on to the company network or WIFI, having the company firewall installed, or using a password to access company data all requires some form of IT software.

That said, CIOs, IT technicians, IT managers, and IT administrators, are the ones who actively use the IT software on a daily basis, versus other employees who simply have the software running in the background.

How much does IT software cost?

Depending on the type of software, IT software can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per month. Although this might sound expensive, keeping your company’s hardware, software, and network safe from both accidental and intentional damage is well worth the price tag.

What are the main uses of IT software?

There are many uses of IT software, the main ones would be employee monitoring, shadow IT monitoring, software and hardware evaluation, cloud infrastructure, device management, and network monitoring.
