Information technology refers to the collection of tools that make it easier to use, create, manage and exchange information. It's a convenient term for including both telephony and computer technology in the same word. It is the technology that is driving what has often been called "the information revolution.
"Information technology has been around for a long, long time. Basically as long as people have been around, information technology has been around because there were always ways of communicating through technology available at that point in time.Over the ensuring decades, many corporations created so-called "IT departments" to manage the computer technologies related to their business. Whatever these departments worked on became the actual definition of Information Technology, one that has evolved over time.Job posting sites commonly use IT as a category in their databases.
The category includes a wide range of jobs across architecture, engineering and administration functions. People with jobs in these areas typically have college degrees in computer science and/or information systems. They may also possess related industry certifications. A career in Information Technology can involve working in or leading IT departments, product development teams, or research groups.
