The vast majority of companies and corporations are in the business of technology. Actually, if no company can function without having some sort of technology in place. Just about every type of equipment available today is either a computer or has some type of computer-related part to make it function. The advancements in computer technology in just the last five years are off the charts. If you implement it in your day-to-day function, your company can look much bigger than it actually is.
Business technology can be hardware or software. Hardware can be desktops, laptops, printers, fax machines, digital cameras and even cell phones. Software is programs to make the hardware function such as Windows XP, multimedia equipment, word processing equipment such as Microsoft Word and even design tools for engineers and architects.
