IT is THE Backbone of Communication
Osita IBEKWE, Consultant, Nigeria, Member
I think IT is the main enabler of the current convergence between Information and Communication Technology (ict).
As it stands now, it is near impossible to isolate IT and Communication. IT is more or less the backbone of communication
, like in a telephone company, it acts as the main carrier of voice, video data etc which is what communication consists of.
IT has had a tremendous impact on the advancement of communication today.
Practically, it has helped people, businesses and governments to exchange information in different formats.
The future belongs to the complete and seamless convergence of IT and related Communication Technologies.
