The World Bank defines ICT as, "hardware, software, networks and media for the collection, storage, processing, transmission and presentation of information (voice, data, text, images), as well as related services."
ICT to me is the not only the collection of all the things mentioned above, its away to streamline a lot of existing business functions. ICT allows us to communicate better with teleconferencing, emails, blogging and IM'ing. It also allows us store data and information and retrieve it easier with databases, video recorders and other devices. ICT to me is very valuable as a society we have all become dependent on it and will increasingly grow more dependent upon it as more technilogical advances are made.
My Program goal is to strenghten my IT foundation and further along my IT career. I am hoping this will be accomplished by taking what I lean in this program and applying it to every day situations.
