Why is Information Technology Important?

Information Technology, or IT, also cited as Information Service (IS) or Management Information Service (MIS), can be defined as the development, design, study, implementation and management of computer related information. It can also be defined as the use of computer – hardware and software – to manage information.

The Evolutionary IT Sector

In the era of 1960s and 70s, information technology was limited to the workforce at the banking sector, mathematical engineers, and computer scientists. In the 1980s, the arrival of personal computers made it possible for IT to be used in varied sectors, where this field witnessed its premiere upsurge. Formerly, for business purposes, storage tapes were created by a single network administrator to interconnect employee workstations. The information stored in this workstation was placed in a server farm, located far-off from the industry. However, people have now started communicating using emails instead of snail-mails. It is an industry which deals with the usage of computer hardware, and software, and networking. Information technology has accomplished a lot in the 21st century. It is a combination of computer, and communication technology. It is the transfer of information from one peer to another.

Information technology is used for storing, protecting, processing, securing, transmitting, receiving, and retrieving information. In business establishments, it is used predominantly to solve mathematical and logical problems. Information technology helps in project management systems as well. Firstly, planning is done, then the data is collected, sorted and processed, and finally, results are generated. It helps managers, and workers to inquire about a particular problem, conceive its complexity, and generate new products and services; thereby, improving their productivity and output.
