Why We Need Information and Communication Technology

Why We Need Information and Communication Technology

The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has permeated everywhere people congregate, including the homes, schools, organizations, government, hospitals, businesses, religious institutions and groups. ICT has become a very vital tool in every sphere of our lives.

ICT tools are crucially important for sustainable growth and development in developing countries of the world. For the past two decades most developed countries have witnessed significant changes that can be traced to ICT. These multi-dimensional changes have been observed in almost all aspects of life: economics, education, communication, administration and travel. In a technology-driven society, getting information quickly is important for both the sender and the receiver. ICT has made it possible to quickly collect, organize, store, manipulate (edit or delete and update), find and retrieve, distribute and present information. The following points explain the usefulness of information and  communication technology today:

  • ICT helps in the management of the masses of information being directed at us everyday.
  • It helps us to be good at building, maintaining and participating in global teams, as global communication skills are vital to the survival of businesses in the global market.
  • It equips and helps us to be self-directed. In other words, ICT helps us to develop initiatives and independent learning skills. We gain rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures.
  • It is a versatile tool for business and career development.
  • ICT is a facilitating technology that controls other technologies.
  • ICT improves operational effectiveness and efficiency.

The success of every man lies in how effectively and efficiently he is able to handle information. We need to equip ourselves with the right knowledge and tools that can cause significant sustainable personal, career and business growth. ICT , the Internet and its infrastructure are the tools.
