What is the difference between an information architecture and an information technology infrastructure?
Information Architecture is a field and approach to designing clear, understandable communications by giving care to structure, context, and presentation of data and information. Particularly refers to websites and intranets, including labelling and navigation schemes. An information technology infrastructure however, is the base or foundation for the delivery of information to support programs and management (of an agency for example). The infrastructure contains elements upon which an agency's information technology activities are dependent. An agency must therefore define, implement, and manage these infrastructure elements to successfully employ information technology.

Answer It is the evolution of electronic devices that aid the access to information or data. Computers, servers, mircrochips, etc are all part of electroni…c devices that give things like your dell or HP computer more memory to store more software like Money, Quickbooks, Excel, etc. These programs will help to aid your business information software and make you and your company more productive.
Answer It may help to consider the two phrases as sciences. Information Technology "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 [San Diego State University]." Information Management "(Data Analysis) is "The manipulation, re-organization, analysis, graphing, charting, and presentation of data for specific management and decision-making purposes." [www.nalms.org] IT is the combination of hardware, software and processes that an entity uses to collect information, while IM is the means by which that information is made understandable, organized and stored.
Answer . Generally, IT is the architecture supporting business... the network devices and hardware. IS is the software running over IT, like databases, enterprise planning …programs, and other software support tools. Information technology refers to devices which allows the storage and manipulation of data and information. This could include PCs, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), mobile phones, etc. An information system is a system which allows the storage and manipulation of information across many devices, and accessible by anyone with access. An example of an information system is an MIS (Management Information System) which may hold information regarding employee's at a company. Managers can access all the information stored on an employee at any time to update things such as holiday requests, etc. Put simply, information technology refers to physical hardware. Information systems on the other hand is a means of storing and manipulating information as needed. Information Systems is a large umbrella referring to systems designed to create, store, manipulate, or disseminate information. Example of an information system is a pencil and a piece of paper. The two objects themselves are just tools, but together they create a system for writing (information). The term Information systems has been around a lot longer than the computer, or the term information technology. These days the two are sometimes thought to be synonymous, but that, in most cases, is a misconception. Information Technology falls under the information systems umbrella, but has nothing to do with systems per say. IT deals with the technology involved in the systems themselves, e.g. an information system like wiki.answers.com contains many information technologies. Servers, server operating systems, web-server software (IIS, Apache, et al), and code written for the web-server software (PHP, C#, VB, PERL, Ruby, et al). Even your computer and browser make up part of this information system. Like the pencil and paper example, each one of the mentioned parts of this information system in itself is an information technology. ===== Additionally : If "by authors" you mean how the two terms are used in context within a prose, then it depends on the subject of the work. It could also mean that the author is using the terms interchangeably, which is technically incorrect, but not always frowned upon.
I believe that Information Technology refers to everything to do with the 'How' of it like which computer/program/modem/wireless/general equipment is available. The Info…rmation System deals more directly with the specific needs of the user which also can incorporate the above list as well, just on a user level rather than an overall level.
Answer Information is data that has been organized or otherwise grouped in a way that it useful to some purpose. Technology is using new informa…tion to improve a product, or create a new product.
Information Technologies specifically deal with all aspects of Data, Information and Knowledge, whereas non-Information Technologies deal with the design, specification, and/o…r construction of areas that are not related to Data, Information, and Knowledge. For example, a transistor, a radio, satellite and a Document Management System "are" Information Technologies, while electromagnets nanotechnologies are, in fact, technologies but are not considered to be Information Technologies.
Answer ICT intrisically includes bringing communication technology like telephony to places that never hadit before difference of IT and ICT ICT intrisicall…y includes bringing communication technology like telephony to places that never hadit before
Nothing. They are the same. Same in Question
Information Communications Technologies (ICTs), such as Radios, Satellites, Hyper Text Transmission Protocol (HTTP), and Extract Transformation & Load (ETL) solutions, are a s…ubset of all Information Technologies. ICTs only focus on the "transmission" and "reception" of data, whereas the general term "Information Technology" represents any technology that deals with any aspect of Data, Information and/or Knowledge.
Information technology is a specific type of technology involvingthe processing, storage, and exchange of information. Technology is a very broad field involving the knowledge… of makingany kind of tool, the making of things needed to make and use thosetools, and many other related things. Even the making and using ofearly stone tools is a technology. Even our early prehumanancestors had technologies and no modern human (even many thousandsof years ago) has lived without having many technologies that theyused every single day. The word 'technology' can apply to anything - from a ball-point pen to a Boeing 777. Information technology usually just refers to computer-related objects etc.
IT is more concerned with technology creation or what we can call IT Artefacts, while IS is concerned about the usage (by people) of these technologies, and their social impli…cations or effects. IT is more about collection,processing,storing and transmitting of data while IS about nertworking of technologies.
Information is the data and its relationships to and from other data, whereas, Information Technology revolves around the sciences, the solutions, the professional disciplines… and the industry that all revolve around dealing with Information.
General-Purpose Main-frame and mini computers, Personal Computers , Client/Server networks, enterprise computers Cloud and Mobile Computers
Information science is strictly the study of science, and in this day and age, mainly computer science. Information technology is the study of computers as they relate to …alleviating problems, and having business solutions.
Information architecture is the design of the storage system used to store and retrieve stored information. Examples include databases, flat file records, hierarchical subdi…rectories, and so on. These broad classifications are often further defined, especially databases, to include the storage engine used (myISAM, InnoDB, etc for MySQL databases), how the information is distributed across the tables, how the information is organized in columns and records, and so on. Information technology infrastructure means the devices used to store, receive, process, and distribute the information stored within the information architecture. This includes the terminals (PCs, for example), network routers, hubs, nodes, and software, server hardware and software, and the software used to retrieve and process the information or commit other actions with it.
one gives info & the other one doesn't
The basic definition in regards to information technology infrastructure is the integrated framework upon which digital networks operate. The infrastructure includes data, com…puters and computer networks.
