Why IT Should Not Run Your Website
Often the tasks of the IT department are thrown on top of an already-long "to-do" list that nobody wants. The already-burdened IT department often ends up with the tasks related to running a web server, installing any software related to the website, and making little changes that should really be performed by a marketing specialist, SEO expert, web designer or database administrator.
The bottom line is that if your website is controlled by the IT department, you are already losing. Make the website a tool for external marketing instead of an IT issue--the risks are minimum and the rewards are well worth it.
