business technologist

A business technologist is an IT (information technology) professional with a combination of broad general knowledge of technology along with soft skills and an understanding of non-technical aspects of a business, including corporate and competitive strategies, marketing, sales and finances.

A business technologist can be thought of as a business IT-alignment expert. Commonly, a business technologist is a CIO (Chief Information Officer) or other C-level executive, a project manager or a business analyst.

Chief among the crucial abilities for a business technologist are communication, problem-solving and collaborative skills. The business technologist's combination of skills and knowledge helps them bridge the divide between different business sectors and enables a holistic perspective from which to better assess the probable impact of various strategies and decisions on the company.

Business technologist is sometimes considered an unofficial designation, essentially a descriptive attribute for an employee or a prospective hire. However, the title is increasingly showing up in job searches and training courses.
