Flourishment of ICT
The ICT (information and communications technology or technologies) sector of the country is expanding fast. Once, no one dared to dream of this emerging sector of the country. ICT is an umbrella term. To illustrate the importance of Information and Communications technology (ICT) for the smooth running of a multi-site business. It includes any communication device or application, such as radio, television, cellular phones, computer and internet, satellite systems, and so on. Videoconferencing and distance learning is a very important part of ICT.
Information and communications technology is a system used to control, manage, process, and create information through telecommunications technology and computers. Now ICT is often used in a particular context, such as ICT in education, health care, or libraries. And at present days ICT is mainly associated with the internet, computer, and mobile. Many small and large companies in the country are now working at home and abroad. Foreign currency is being earned from the IT sector. However, ICT has no universal definition; the definition depends on how you use present-day technology. In practice, we can say that ICT is what we do on the internet. ICT has a great impact in our daily lives. For example, we can read our local newspaper using the online newspaper. Another example is we still can get connected with our family, relatives, or colleagues even if we are abroad by using the electronic mail, yahoo messenger, call conference, or video conference.
The success of these sectors shows that the software sector of the country is moving forward. An information system incorporates a group of people, equipment, and procedures. It is there to collect, record, process, store, retrieve, and present information. With ICT, the company can make the business easier to happen with the client, supplier, and distributor. It is also very important in our daily lives. The lack of appropriate information at the right time will result in low productivity, low-quality research works, and a waste of time to pursue information and even to do research which actually others had done or in other countries. Nowadays ICT cannot be separated from our daily needs.
ICT is one of the economic development pillars to gain a national competitive advantage. It can improve the quality of human life because it can be used as a learning and education media, the mass communication media in promoting and campaigning practical and important issues, such as the health and social area. Organizations worldwide can leverage the advantages of ICT to increase productivity in the workplace, cut operational costs, and improve customer experience. It provides wider knowledge and can help in gaining and accessing information. The advancements in this industry fuel the global economy, international trade, communication, and services across all sectors.
