IT

  • What is it?
    The acronym IT commonly stands for information technology. It is a subset of ICT (information and communications technology) that focuses on the use of computers and servers to create, process, transmit, and store digital data. As hardware and software technologies advance, the types of data that can be generated from every aspect of our lives, and the value that can be gleaned from this data, have far surpassed our initial expectations. For example, old medical records used to clutter up shelves and cabinets (or hard drives) in doctors' offices, providing no benefit to anyone except for the returning patient. Now, with the invention of artificial intelligencecomputer visiondeep learning, and other techniques, this invaluable archive of big data can be analyzed to find common indicators of disease, which can then be used to help screen future patients.

    In just about every vertical market, an IT staff is critical to helping the company carry out its daily operations, as well as leverage its store of information and know-how to generate new value. In addition to the PC products we all work with every day, more and more IT departments are incorporating server solutions into their IT infrastructure: whether it's by building its own server rooms and server farms, or by renting cloud computing services from large-scale data centers. In this way, an IT team can be more than just part of the administrative or supporting staff; they can help the company grow and develop new business opportunities.

  • Why do you need it?
    As has already been said, incorporating IT in your business can be more than just a way to ensure that the day-to-day work can hum along without a hitch; it is also a way to discover new value in your existing database and grow your business. Besides the healthcare-related example cited above, other real-life success stories include:

    Manufacturing: It goes without saying that all modern jobs rely on IT equipment to manage, communicate, and operate the tools of production. But an enterprising IT team can do more than help keep the lights on. By collecting and analyzing data about the tools of production, predictive and preventive maintenance can be conducted to eliminate disruptions before they happen.

    Transport and logistics: Open road tolling (ORT) solutions that can deduct tolls from a passing vehicle without requiring the driver to slow down can also assess traffic conditions and warn of road congestion. In this case, the IT equipment not only makes collecting tolls easier, it also creates new valuable services that the ORT operator can sell to customers.

    Retail: The flow of shoppers in a busy mall may seem like a random, haphazard swirl, but the truth of the matter is, there may be a logic to the comings and goings of a madding crowd. By hooking up IP cameras with servers and AI software, regions of interest (ROI) in a shopping center can be identified and capitalized on.
