Information Technology

The world is awash with information, and IT is the central nervous system of our modern world. The internet of things. The cloud. How do we store, secure, interpret and present the 2.5 quintillion bytes of data we produce every minute? The answer is in the hands of computer programmers, data scientists and other IT specialists.
