Information technology

Information Technology (ICT - information and communications technology) is an umbrella term for all technologies or systems for sending and receiving data.

We can say that Information Technology is considered a strategic tool able to make data and information available which, with the spread of technology and interconnectivity, can help organisations redefine their relationships with customers, suppliers and other organisations.
Information Technology has many intervention capabilities within organisations: from the installation and design of telecommunications architectures to database management and planning of integrated services for the convergence of computing and telephony in data communication for new data transmission methods; to archiving, processing or transforming and representing information with the assistance of computers and related technologies.


Nowadays, companies, and in general the information society, are based on computer systems and telecommunications.
