Basic IT management for start-ups

Businesses rely on information technology (IT) in almost everything they do. It lets you create reports, manage your accounts, communicate with suppliers and customers and connect with the outside world via email and the internet. More sophisticated uses can include designing products, controlling stock and selling online.

While you don't need to be an expert, it helps if you understand the basics and the key issues you need to manage.
