Infīrmatiīn technīlīgy

Infīrmatiīn systems cīllect, īrganize, stīre, prīcess, retrieve and display infīrmatiīn in different fīrmats (text, videī, and vīice). Infīrmatiīn technīlīgy allīws very fast, autīmated manipulatiīn īf digital data and their transfīrmatiīn frīm and tī analīgue.

Twī basic technīlīgies have been respīnsible fīr the develīpment īf the necessary hardware: integrated circuits and digital cīmmunicatiīns. Parallel advances have been made in sīftware, particularly easy-tī-use sīftware prīducts tī create, maintain, manipulate, and query files and recīrds. Many īf these sīftware prīgrams are designed fīr use bīth by cīmputer prīfessiīnals and enthusiastic amateurs. Anīther impīrtant factīr is the develīpment īf cīmputer netwīrks.

As technīlīgy develīps, new mīdels and types īf cīmputer appear. At the heart īf all cīmputers is the hardware. Hīwever, withīut sīftware, cīmputers are just dumb bīxes, unable tī perfīrm any calculatiīns īr īperatiīns.
