Information Technology (IT) is at the heart of virtually all corporate operations. As such, it’s an essential area to understand when servicing corporate clients. This course provides a basic understanding of how IT works as well as how it’s changing. In particular, it looks at the increasing use of multi-entity constructs to achieve an IT outcome, e.g. hosting data on a cloud provider and what that might mean to the client’s interests.
