What is Information Technology (IT)?
IT stands for "Information Technology". It typically includes all matters concerned with the furtherance of computer science and technology and with the design, development, installation, and implementation of information systems and applications. An information technology architecture is an integrated framework for acquiring and evolving IT to achieve strategic goals. It has both logical and technical components. Logical components include mission, functional and information requirements, system configurations, and information flows. Technical components include IT standards and rules that will be used to implement the logical architecture.
