This article describes the involvement of Information technology in the various fields and the usage of IT. Check this answer to know more about telecommunication, USB flash drive and other related information.



INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN VARIOUS FIELDS


Man developed various ways for communication through the
Exchange of information, ideas and knowledge which is of
Great importance to him as a social being.

- Gestures, symbols, languages.
- Alphabets for writing.
- Writing surfaces like stone, metal and paper.
- Instruments for writing.

The list can be extended too many more human inventions.
Efforts were made to develop faster, easier readable and
Artistic ways of written communication.


- Printing and spread of knowledge

The discovery of printing was a revolutionary step. To make
a few handwritten copies of great books, many people had to
Toil for months and years. With the invention of printing, thousands
Of could be made within days. Before painting was invented, only
Kings and rich people could buy books which were expensive. When
Many copies were printed expenses came down and even ordinary people
could buy books. Many long forgotten manuscripts were printed and
circulated. Books, magazines, newspaper and notifications were published
in large numbers. This resulted in the spread of literacy and the growth of
education. Printing technology progressed steadily.

- Electronics across time and space

With the discovery of electricity and the growth of electronics which followed,
two more message system took shape-telegraph and telephone- which revolutionized
and the world of communications. They made it possible to send messages across the ocean instantly. News and programs could be transmitted to any place through the radio. Through radio programs, people of different countries were brought closer. Children in Kerala now see events take place in remote countries through the T.V. The constant growth of communications technology and our ready acceptance of this technology has made this possible. Information technology brings together all the prominent communication technologies of the 20th century. Electronics, telecommunication and computer are linked together in IT. The term Information Technology is commonly used instead of the word ‘Computer technology’.


Even in 1080s, IT was described as the technology of 21st century. This technology become full fledged in 20th century itself. IT is becoming more and more important as the developing countries have also become its beneficiaries following developed countries.

IT IN DIFFERENT FIELDS

Let us see some service sector to see the impact of Information Technology


Telecommunication

The progress of information technology has opened the doors to many new services in the field of telecommunications. The computer itself is connected to the telephone network to exchange communication through the channel of e-mail. Radio-TV transmission world wide web has also been made possible . Telephone and internet services are brought together in mobile internet.


USB flash drive

Floppy disk, CDROM, etc…were used to transfer data from one computer to another computer. Nowadays the flash drive has dominated all those instruments in transferring as many times of data than instruments.


EDUCATION

The computer can play a big role in the management of educational institutions. Preparation of timetables, organizing question banks, consolidation of details of each student, and preparation of salary details can be effectively done by the computer. With the help of computer ideas can be more easily explained to the student. In chemistry to do experiments with dangerous thing and that are too expensive, we can do by using computer.


ENTERTAINMENT

Computer is now an important tool in film, television and advertisement. The computer allows you innumerable options to handle pictures.


MEDICINE

In many medical equipments like ECG machines, computer chips are used. Blood analysis and vision testing can be done through certain software’s . when the health condition of a person is to be monitored round the clock, computer chips are connected to his/her body. This can collect the required responses and provide feedback to doctors through computer. Communication through internet also opened up more possibilities in medical care
