Hackett Concludes the Answer is Yes. This report, as well as many other observations, show that IT is no longer the sole domain of IT professionals. Business professionals can no longer count solely on IT specialists to make decisions on development, downloading, and deployment of information systems.
Regardless of their major field of expertise, those who have the proper IT knowledge and skills stand a better chance of receiving more lucrative job offers and faster promotions. We call it the decimal counting system. However, we could also use a system consisting of only two digits, zero and one, to represent quantities. This is the binary counting system. Because computers and related devices use the binary system—a system that uses two digits—they are referred to as digital systems.
However, digital systems are not used only to represent information that contains numbers, or quantities. They can also represent any information as combinations of zeroes and ones, or, more accurately, the two states that represent zeroes and ones.
Digital information consists of zeroes and ones representing two states. When you have a mechanism that can represent two states, such as electrically charged and uncharged elements, magnetized and nonmagnetized areas, light and no light, you have a way to represent the zeroes and ones.
Based on such signals, information can be represented, stored, communicated, and processed digitally.
That is, a digital copy is an exact copy of the original. For example, an analog copy machine reproduces images by reflection or a similar technique. The copy may be good, but it is never as good as the original. And as you make a copy from the copy, the quality deteriorates.
When you make a copy of a digital file, such as an image file or a musical file, the system you use first captures the combinations of signals the digits, zeroes and ones that make up the file. When processed by the proper hardware and software, the digits are transformed back into the image, or music, or whatever other information you copied.
As long as your computer or other digital device can capture all the digits that make up the information, the original information can be re-created fully.
Digital information is stored and communicated by way of electromagnetic signals— electricity, magnetism, and light. These processes involve little or no moving parts. Therefore, storage, retrieval, processing, and communication of digital information are extremely fast. These capabilities—accuracy and speed—make digital systems powerful and therefore useful and important in so many fields: business, education, entertainment, and many others.
Umbrella Shall I or shall I not take the umbrella? Perhaps you should download a smart umbrella, such as the Ambient Forecasting Umbrella. Through a radio receiver, the umbrella receives weather information from AccuWeather. A small display in the handle pulses light according to the probability of rain.
If the probability is 60 percent, the handle pulses once per second. If the probability is percent, it pulses times per minute. Source: Bermudez, A. For instance, you probably seek information for entertainment and enlightenment by viewing television, watching movies, browsing the Internet, listening to the radio, and reading newspapers, magazines, and books.
In business, however, people and organizations seek and use information mainly to make sound decisions and to solve problems—two closely related practices that form the foundation of every successful company. What is a problem?

With the advancement in technology and growth of organizations, which manage thousands of employees who work across the globe, implementing information management became quite daunting.
Information management in todays world has become simpler due to the rapid development of technology, especially the introduction of computers and telecommunication. Computers and telecommunication networks play a vital role during data collection. Computer provides essential features, such as optimal storage capacity, speed, accuracy, automation, and security of data. Telecommunication networks, such as telephone, e-mails, voicemail, and Internet are used for secure transmission of information across the globe at utmost speed.
Information management no longer includes simply computing the payroll and keeping track of accounts payable and receivable. Today, information management includes in-depth tracking of sales, inventories, resource and people management, project management etc.
