Traditional IT department to disappear in radical five year transition

Gartner says CIOs should re-name the IT dept by the end of 2008

ARD Consulting IT manager, Eric Biggsley, said there has been minor changes to job titles and departments in the past 20 years.

"When I began my career I worked in the computer department or the technical services department," he said.

"Also when I began many of my older colleagues were called computer scientists in the workplace, I rarely hear that term used today."

Over the years, Biggsley's title has changed from IT facilities manager and EDI (electronic data interchange) manager to the director of information resources through to his current title of IT manager.

"It looks like future titles are more likely to include words like processes, business, innovation, relationships and services. Who knows, in five years time I could be the business process and innovation services relationship manager."
