“Computing is not about computers anymore. It is about living. ~Nicholas Negroponte, Being Digital, 1995″
How would life be today without computers?
The field of Information Technology is one which is beneficial to all industries and hence knowledge about it is an important weapon which leads to the success of businesses. It enables the collection of data, its classification and processing of the data in order to be able to provide the desired information for further analyses by a business or entity. Therefore system managers can store their data safely, manipulate it, transmit it, and retrieve it. The IT system also enables the investigation of problems and provides ideas to solve them.
Generally, an IT system entails several aspects which include the administration, configuration and maintenance of the IT systems such servers such as Linux which enable the storage of data, networking, security and review of the data hardware configuration , as well as operating systems where a user can access the data e.g. Mac OS or FreeDOS.
It also encompasses graphic design such as 2D and 3D animation i.e. the sculpting of 2D or 3D characters and their rendering with various features such as flash. It also encompasses the field of graphic and web design.
Lastly, it deals with the development of computing platforms which includes algorithms and programming techniques, scripting, soft-ware development, game development and coding languages such as Pascal, Java, C/C++/C# etc.
Therefore IT technicians need to be well versed with a wide range of fields to be able to communicate effectively with the IT systems.
“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other”.
This website was previously created for Skullbox which was an email messaging service but the service may have been terminated after a brief period of time. I couldn’t find much information about the previous site although when I found the domain I became interested in publishing content which pertain to IT systems. Already there are several interesting posts about IT and you can access them below by clicking the various categories that I’ve created.
