Buttons and circuit board

ICT (information and communications technology – or technologies) covers any computer or communication device or application, including: computer and network hardware and software,  wireless, television, mobile phones, satellite systems and the Internet, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing and distance learning.  Although our consultants are skilled in current hardware and software technology, including full-life cycle system development, our services are often called on less for work on the technology itself than on its ability to create greater access to information and communication such as programmes of channel shift, enabling most cost effective processes for businesses and bridging the digital divide.
