You make sure the boss can get his e-mail.

That much input? by Vulch (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Dec 12, 2007 at 07:32:17 AM EST

I read it as "I am a peon and do what I'm told, how I'm told".

You can look at the internal divisions of your company as clients of your internal IT department. They have certain business needs (say, they require a bunch of information to be stored somewhere and need to be able to ask certain questions about that information) and it would be your job to implement the business solution (say, building and maintaining the database).

I think this is a question you were completely not meant to answer, it's the sort of thing to ask somebody who is in, say, the IT department of a car manufacturer, not somebody who is providing technical support to external clients of an IT company.

I do some internal IT stuff here by ReallyEvilCanine (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Dec 12, 2007 at 05:21:10 AM EST
Along with helping out the real IT people on occasion, I built and maintained the internal crash & burn lab as well as the internal local storage servers and a few other IT-ish things. I also directly administer machines and networks for those 17s out there too dumb to follow instructions but who can be guided enough to set up a Web conference and transfer control to me.

Gather user requirements and design (and possibly implement) a solution that fulfils those requirements, internally to your company rather than for external customers.

Obvious really...
