IT program management is the process of managing the development of multiple and related IT projects.
It is a collection all IT projects that are geared toward a common goal or objective and are managed through formal program management policies and procedures.
IT program management is primarily implemented in government and large enterprises having a number of IT projects in development. The key objective behind all such projects is to reach a bigger goal. For example, for an IT health care program, IT program management may include developing one or more key health care applications, upgrading network infrastructure, implementing cloud computing technologies and similar projects. IT program management is generally overseen by an IT program manager with multiple IT project managers working under them.
