What is the relationship between Information Technology and computers?
Information Technology is a 'classification' term that defines all components of the systems that gather, share and store information. A computer is a component of the 'IT' division. Other components are the Network devices (routers, switches, hubs, etc.), communication devices (Modems, PBXs, etc.), storage devices (optical drives, mass storage drives, back up units, etc.), etc.

Computer Science focuses on how the computer and computer programs work, while an Information & Technology focuses on how to make everything work together in the most efficien…t manner possible.
In Information technology, you're generally working setting up networks, software, and repairing things. In Computer Science Engineering, you'd be designing and creating the n…ext step in Computer technology.
Of course :) 1. Computer Science is the science of computers while Information Technology may or may not use computers. Of course there is a big overlap but in general comput…er science handles the technical working of computers whilst IT is concerned more with information manipulation and the business requirements 2. I think that computer science is concerned with the principles and concepts that are behind the emergence of IT. In other words, CS is academic studying of the S/W and H/W concepts but IT may have specific purposes to be studied. 3. From a very broad perspective, Computer Science is the study of the principles of computing. It helps you better understand how computers solve problems, the kinds of problems that a computer can solve and how one would present a problem to a computer. Abstract ideas that rely on fundamental mathematical theories are at the heart of Computer Science. Information Technology is the study of technology that drives Information Systems for businesses. Understanding how technology/tools can best meet the Information management needs of an organization is at the heart of IT. 4. As a computer Scientist migrated towards Information Technology I can say that a computer science is the study of computer's design and operation. But Information Technology is the use of the computer for a specific purpose without knowing the details of how the computer is carrying on all these tasks. 5. First you have to understand the differences between science, engineering & technology. Science is a systematic & specialized way of thinking.A scientist thinks & makes principles & hypothesis. Engineering means the practical implementation of principles & hypothesis for the welfare of human beings with the help of machines. At first he makes drawings on the basis of principles, and then take it to real world for use. Technology always deals with OPTIMIZATION (MAXIMUM GAIN WITH MINIMUM EFFORTS)with the help of newer supports like computers & transfer machines. We use computers as a tool. The aim of IT is to make our information more profitable by making it recently & attractive 6. Computer Science is a part of IT. Computer Scientists are generally responsible of building the tools(OS, Compiler, Database...) used in IT, where as IT technicians are responsible of using these tools to make real world applications. 7. This question is very tricky and needs to be answered very carefully. The basic difference is that information technology is about transmitting information and gathering it, whereas computer science is something related to computers and only computer, such as software. IT people can be considered more of a general management subject 8. Computer Science refers to the science or details of computers - which includes the design of software (such as compilers, Operating Systems), design of hardware (such as RAM, CPU etc), networking etc. Information Technology is the application of Computers towards organizing and efficient retrieval/reporting of information. A useful, if somewhat crude analogy could be the difference between "heat, cold, humidity, water "etc (which is like computer science) and Meteorology (which uses the information about cloud, humididy etc to predict weather)
Computer engineering Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering, s/w design, and hardware-software integration to develop co…mputer systems. computer engineer usually develop system program, VLSI and circuit board design etc. on the other hand Information Technology Engineering much focus on retrieving, transmitting and processing information in world using computers and telecommunication. IT professionals perform a variety of functions that range from installing application to designing complex computer network and information database.
\n. \n Difference Between Technologies \n. \nComputer Technology deals more with hardware usage and building/repairing PC's, networks, etc, while Information Technology …deals with using computers to acquire knowledge as applied in the business world.\n. \nFor example:\nA person with a Computer Technology degree may find themselves working for a repair company building pcs or upgrading the current computing infrastructure. A person with an Information Technology degree (such as myself) may find themselves working as a programmer or building database queries to ferret out information for a company to make decisions based upon that data.\n. \nMany college/university websites can help to deliver a better answer than mine above. Look around, you'll quickly see what the difference in curriculums is like.

Computer Information Technology refers to hardware (PC's, servers, networks etc) and the associated operating system software (broadly computer software in general can o…r could be referred to as a form of information technology). Computer Information Systems are a type of computer software used for the collection of raw data on to which queries can be asked. The output of the queries would then be termed as Information (and may be presented in the form of pie charts, line graphs etc).
information technology it deal with software and hardware
At the most basic level, Computer Science is a "Hard" Science, well grounded in what is now known in the field of Mathematics as Information Theory. Computer Science (as a fie…ld) is concerned with developing new ideas around the use and design of computing systems, and with the mathematical concepts of computation and information. Information Technology, on the other hand, is a practical Engineering discipline, concerned with implementing solutions to practical problems using current-day technology.
Answer Information technology (IT)is a broad subject concerned with technology and other aspects of managing and processing information, especially in large orga…nizations. This is really good for individuals who don't like math because it offer less math courses even though you have to take accounting courses. You can get jobs such as database administrator, webmaster, programmer, software engineer, telecommunications, management, computer security analyst, etc. Computer science is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems. Good for jobs like software engineering, hardware engineering, computer science professor, programmer, etc.
information can help improve technology
The technician is a living, breathing human being; IT is the system on which he/she works.
In a computer, data refers to a collection of numbers, words, stats, or other components that, when translated by a computer, generate information. Data is processed to pr…oduce information.
Answer . \nThat's kinda like the difference between an x-ray machine and the field of medicine. a computer is just a tool, like the x-ray or stethoscope. information techno…logy (IT) is the whole field that has grown up around the use of computers primarily in the business setting. This would include everything from software and hardware development to programming and networking, and is basically what allows a company to utilize their computer systems in a productive and cohesive way. IT works with users to identify their needs (for example, a distribution company needs to be able to take orders, process the orders, track inventory, maintain accounts payable and receivable, payroll, etc.) IT oversees and manages all these functions as they pertain to the computerized side of the business. Since computers are here to stay, IT is an excellent career choice, if that's what you had in mind, especially as it offers many different areas in which one might specialize.
Good question! Information system is a bit personal and is business oriented as it focuses on inference and application of computing in the corporate domain. Whereas, informat…ion technology is never limited to a single domain but it focuses on selection, integration as well as deployment of computing in various fields. Information system requires exceptional management skills along with knowledge of technology, to take strategic decisions. Information technology requires technical knowledge of integrating databases as well as networking deployment and development of websites. To keep it short, Information system is about the corporate side of technology, whereas Information Technology deals with core technical part.
No, there is no relationship at all. There are two types of night vision systems: IR night vision - also called FLIR (forward looking IR), use an IR sensor to… produce an image; there are two versions of this - those that show the heat of the objects being looked at and those that use an IR spotlight to illuminate the scene without being observed low light night vision - these use a special vacuum tube (see image above) to convert a faint image to electric currents that are accelerated to hit a phosphor coated plate that glows with a brighter version of that original image - typically starlight is enough for these to get a good image
The relationship between Information Technology and privacy can be described as a complex one. While some people get their privacy needs met through information technology…, other will have their privacy compromised and they become vulnerable to identity theft and other malicious activities.
