This must be one of the most common questions you might have had from a very young age. I researched a bit and found out the difference between the two terms recently. Since these two terms are being used interchangeably, I thought of writing a small article explaining this.
So, today I am going to talk about the difference between ICT and IT.
“C” is the difference
IT stands for Information Technology.
ICT stands for Information and Communication Technology.
IT is about collecting and processing information. This field deals with tools related to collecting, processing information including coding and programming.
When someone says that they work in IT, this could mean a broad variety of fields. This could be network administration, computer science, system analysis and more.
ICT includes everything that IT includes and field with further expansion of scope. The communication parts like Wireless Communication, Analog and Digital Communication, Multimedia Communication, Optical fibre Communication, etc are in the scope of ICT.
I hope you guys understand the difference between ICT and IT now. Thank you for reading the article. Stay safe ✌
