In short, anything that renders data, information or perceived knowledge in any visual format whatsoever, via any multimedia distribution mechanism, is considered part of the domain space known as Information Technology (IT). IT professionals perform a variety of functions (IT Disciplines/Competencies) that range from installing applications to designing complex computer networks and information databases. A few of the duties that IT professionals perform may include data management, networking, Software Design and Development, computer hardware as well as management and administration of entire IT systems. Information technology is starting to spread further and more integration of other technologies such as the use of cell phones, televisions, automobiles, and more, which is increasing the demand for such jobs.
