The process of using computers to store, manipulate, retrieve and transmit data is what is referred to as information technology and is abbreviated as IT. The final outcome of an action is the product. ICT or information communication technology is the mother of IT. The IT products hence are the final outcome of a number of computing processes through the use of hardware and software systems to convert data to information.
storage and retrieval of large data amounts has always been a problem for firms until the databases came about and it’s what the IT products are all about. Database systems contain the special feature that they can allow many users to access the information simultaneously and still maintain integrity. This has become possible due to the database schema that defines and allows grouping of the data making the retrieval speedy and easy. It is also meant responsible for meaningful arrangement of data to make information.
The first process is the data retrieval which involves data and information interconversion of data that are any raw facts and that just stored to Information on the other hand which is data that has been organized and presented meaningfully.
Propagation, transmission and reception are the three aspects of the next process and they are used for data broadcast. the analysis and presentation of information acquired through the study of interesting patterns of large amounts of data that is data mining gives our third process also known as data manipulation.
I.T. processes have brought ethics into the industry and that means there is more security and professionalism in the information technology industry because information is made central but distributed but records in case of a breach can be used to trace the malpractice back to those practicing it.
The managed service provider and remote monitoring and management software that are abbreviated as MSP and RMM are IT product types that use the professional services automation (PSA) and the disaster recovery and back up programs.
The MSP deals with the protection of the customers by making sure that every transaction is recorded step by step and that the customer’s privacy is not intruded in the course without their knowledge.
The RMM software is for a similar purpose as the MSP but it is responsible for helping the client receive periodical reports and integrate third parties without allowing them to access the information directly from them.
Backup and recovery, web protection, mobile device management and the offering of solutions are some of the features of the managed service provider and Remote Monitoring and Management software.
