Housebuilding from the IM Perspective
Using a housebuilding analogy, Jason Berry, Developer/Analyst for Askari Solutions, outlines the role of an IM specialist as considering the specific homeowner needs. Once you know the purpose of the house, you can build it. The IM specialist must investigate the living, day-to-day needs of the family or business, and ensure those needs are built into the plans. Is it a couple? Is it a family? Do they have specific hobbies that require architectural consideration (playing pool)? Once these needs are met, the IT specialist is needed to build a sturdy, up-to-code, resilient architecture.
