IT-oLogy is the study of the professional discipline of Information Technology.
Advances in IT will continue to drive major innovations across all major industries throughout the world. These advances will also change the face of government and the non-profit sector. Businesses will continue to expand the use of IT in all aspects of the business enterprise and will seek more comprehensive e-commerce and information management solutions to remain competitive.
IT businesses and professionals will face increasing pressure to design, develop, implement and support more complex and reliable IT solutions that will meet the needs of external and internal customers. This will require that IT professionals have the skills to determine customer and business needs and requirements, manage complex projects, integrate software and hardware solutions, and deliver total solutions on time that meet customer needs.
In the 21st century, people still build things out of wood and brick and metal; but at an accelerating pace, they are embedding computing devices into their creations. Computers have become one of the essential construction materials of our age.
That means that computing skills have become essential. Now, more than ever, computer science (CS) skills are a necessity for the budding innovator. This will become even truer in the years and decades to come in fields ranging from economics to biology to gaming. You’d be hard-pressed to identify a productive endeavor for which computing is not a prerequisite for success.
