What Does Information Technology Mean Today?
Something that gives every detail and fact about something or somebody is information, and information technology is the study of electronic equipment especially computers to bring it in practical use for handling, storing, analyzing and processing information. Even a person can get much information through software and the set of instructions or programs. The software can be used in many ways- accounting, designing, weather forecasting etc.
In fact nobody denies that this is the Age of Electronics. When a person is deprived of using a computer, it is sure that he or she will get frustrated in their life because of being unemployed. The more one uses a computer, the more they are interested in learning and using it. Most of the students throughout the world are attracted towards the colleges that provide computer skills and award the degree of a computer engineer.
It is sure that every activity of a person in the future will be computerized if the electronic development swifts like this. A computer will be a man made ‘man’. Every work will be done by just pushing a button and everyone will be an individualist. The person who will be unable to use a computer will be as blind as a bat.
In brief, Information Technology is a present day need of a person. It should be practised for the welfare of mankind and the whole earth. People should be discouraged to use it in destructive actions like war. It must be linked with human creation so that it always becomes our servant.
