What is this?
The World of Information Technology (IT) has evolved tremendously over the years. This guide or list of interesting IT articles/Tech news is meant for beginners who would like to know more about IT or students who wish to use these handpicked materials for their research and presentations in class, in the form of interesting articles published by various media sources over the recent years. We have broken this comprehensive guide down into ten different topics, and we understand that even by doing so, it is still impossible for us to cover everything, especially with the development and implementation of new technologies into our existing business processes, namely blockchain (blockchain tech isn’t just used for cryptocurrencies!). Do comment or hit us up on our Facebook page if you want to recommend more material to be included in this guide. Now, let’s learn IT together!

Why is Information Technology (IT) important?
I’m not the IT guy in my office, so why bother learning it when I can leave it to the pros to do it for me? Well, you’ve guessed it right. No matter what profession you are in right now, IT will or has already affected how you work. For example, if you were an accountant, you should be aware that many countries, such as Singapore herself, has already begun pioneering the use of blockchain technology at customs. This will hugely increase auditability and traceability of imports and exports, while substantially reducing the need for accountants which have the chance to make human errors.

Furthermore, this is true for lawyers as well. With artificial intelligence and machine learning, software is now fully capable of predicting the same result in a fraction of the time the court takes to judge a sentence.
The point is, no one is safe from change. We are not just talking about how smartphones, online conferencing have become essential tools of business. Technology has caused radical restructuring in business processes in almost every company, and it will only continue to become more frequent in the future. The world will be filled with digital firms in which nearly all of the organisation’s significant business relationships with customers, suppliers, and employees are digitally enabled and mediated. Thus, it is vital for each and every one of us to be well versed in this field to become more versatile and adaptable in this ruthless world.
