From the Author
We worked hard in the development of this book to look at not just the technologies themselves, but more interestingly how different business sectors use those technologies around the world. The book should be of genuine value & interest to anyone involved in telecoms and IT, whether you work for a national PTT, a global technology company, an offshore services provider or in any type of business or organisation that uses digital technology in its activities.
Technology areas that we cover are:
Convergence, Mobility and devices, Software & Applications, Networking, Data Centers and Information Security, Managed Services and Outsourcing and Digital Media.
We explore the use of Telecoms & IT in the following industry sectors: Retail, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Banking, New Media and Start Ups and Travel.
We also look at the impact of telecoms and IT on Socety, specifically Healthcare, Surveillance and Green IT.
The book in very current. We enjoyed writing it. We hope you enjoy learning English from it.
