Information technology, or IT, refers to computers storing, retrieving, transmitting and manipulating data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise.The term is commonly used to mean computers and computer networks but also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, engineering, healthcare,  e-commerce and computer services.

IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). Business/IT was one level of the ICT hierarchy.

The Association for Computing Machinery defines IT as "undergraduate degree programs that prepare students to meet the computer technology needs of business, government, healthcare, schools, and other kinds of organizations... IT specialists assume responsibility for selecting hardware and software products appropriate for an organization, integrating those products with organizational needs and infrastructure, and installing, customizing, and maintaining those applications for the organization’s computer users."

The Information Technology Association of America has defined information technology as "the study, design, development, application, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems."

History of Information Technology

Storing, retrieving, manipulating and communicating information has been happening for centuries, but the term information technology is a more modern term that first appeared in a 1958 article published in the Harvard Business Review. Authors Harold J. Leavitt and Thomas L. Whisler commented that "the new technology does not yet have a single established name. We shall call it information technology (IT)." Their definition includes three categories: techniques for processing, the application of statistical and mathematical methods to decision-making, and the simulation of higher-order thinking through computer programs.

There are four distinct phases of IT development: pre-mechanical (3000 BC – 1450 AD), mechanical (1450–1840), electromechanical (1840–1940) and electronic (1940–present).
