  • About Information Technology

    Our Information Technology books provide insight into how computers and communications equipment store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, usually in a business or other enterprise. Information Technology (IT) is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as telephones. IT draws on elements from database management, networking and communications, operating systems, programming languages, software engineering and systems development, operations management, and information security.
