It's the Technology

Ralph Menzano’s ‘Making IT Happen’ gets a new marketing push this 2022

Ralph Menzano has been in the computer field for 45 years — from when it was called “Data Processing” in the ’70s, to “Management Information Systems” in the ’80s, to its more recent metamorphosis as “Information Technology.” He has had the unique opportunity to view the growth and role of IT in four distinct industries — manufacturing, finance, government, and transportation — which he shares in “Making IT Happen” (published by AuthorHouse).

This book provides guidance for information technology strategic planning for applications, advanced technologies and resources. Here, the author draws on his experiences in the manufacturing, banking, and transportation sectors to illustrate how IT can run across all industries. It provides IT deployment framework for C-level executives, board members, and high level managers which proves to be useful in completing projects on time and on budget.

“There are always new IT projects as tech changes rapidly so much so that if you don’t embrace new tech ideas and implementation projects, one’s firm can fall helplessly behind in their industry,” the author states. “This book encourages the use of tech by reducing fear through proper planning.”

“Making IT Happen” was first published in December 2011 and is now set for a new press campaign. To know more, purchase a copy of the book at https://www.authorhouse.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/293652-MAKING-IT-HAPPEN.
