The process of using computers to store, manipulate, retrieve and transmit data is what is referred to as information technology and is abbreviated as IT. Products on the other hand are items that are the results obtained from and action or a process. Information technology is considered a branch of information communications technology. Information technology products are therefore the programs that are as a result of integration of hardware and software computing systems in the production process and are helpful to firms and enterprises.
The IT products revolve around the database and have brought about a solution to the retrieval and storage of large amounts of data. As the database gives many people the ability to access information from it simultaneously it has enabled efficiency while maintaining integrity and hence solved the problem of handling and mismanagement of large amounts of data. That is because the database schema allows the definition and separate storage of the data itself making the retrieval easier and fast. That organization of data brought about responsibility.
The data retrieval process has involved the interchanging of information to data and vice versa and the reorganization and presentation meaningfully.
Propagation, transmission and reception are the three aspects of the next process and they are used for data broadcast. the analysis and presentation of information acquired through the study of interesting patterns of large amounts of data that is data mining gives our third process also known as data manipulation.
Professionalism was brought in the industry through these processes and that translates into more security and the analysis of the data records in case of a breach will show trails which if followed can lead back the malpractice to the doer.
The types of products include the MSP software and the RMM software’s that are abbreviations for managed service provider and remote monitoring and management software that use the professional services automation (PSA) and the disaster recovery and back up programs.
The MSP deals with the protection of the customers by making sure that every transaction is recorded step by step and that the customer’s privacy is not intruded in the course without their knowledge.
The RMM software allows clients to receive periodical reports of the transactions recorded and handle their security and give access of information to third parties but in an indirect form.
The features of these software includes backup and recovery, patch management, mobile device management, web protection and give solutions incase problems arise.
