It’s no longer the 1990s−but the phrase “information technology” is still stuck there. It's time to consider taking the "I" out of "IT." All technology contains/handles/processes information. The phrase “information technology” just repeats what we already know. Technology focuses on hosting, moving, and protecting data.
