Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or enterprise. The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, such as computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, e-commerce and computer services.
The information technology (IT) sector of Hong Kong is among the most advanced in the world.
Hong Kong IT professionals who have obtained the required qualification can participate in large-scale IT projects, which usually require system integration services at the senior level of project management.
