OPTIMISE YOUR IT RESOURCES WITH AN IT PORTFOLIO MANAGER
Generally, an IT Portfolio Manager is responsible for the optimisation of a company’s IT resource pool/assets (portfolio), to assess how integral a company’s IT portfolio is to its productivity and profitability.
For example, if a company implements a new programme into its operations and this programme incorporates different IT resources with the common end goal to maximise profit, a Portfolio Manager will typically asses the associated costs, risks and potential outcomes then advise, implement and manage the operations of the new programme.
A Portfolio Manager will also make assessments on any current IT portfolios to identify inefficiencies or opportunities to ensure that business goals are achieved.
This definition however is generic, often the role of an IT Portfolio Manager can be moulded and shaped to suit the specific needs of a company. It is therefore necessary for an experienced IT Portfolio Manager to possess a wide range of skills so that they can quickly adapt to a company's operations.
