Technology is a body of knowledge devoted to creating tools, processing actions, and the extracting of materials. Technology typically involves a specific piece of equipment, that equipment can be quite simple or incredibly complex. It can be anything from the discovery of the wheel, all the way up to computers and iPhones. The term ‘Technology” is a broad term which everyone has their way of understanding its meaning.
We use technology to accomplish various tasks in our daily lives. We can describe technology as products and processes used to simplify our daily lives. We use tech to extend our abilities, making people the most crucial part of any technological system.
Technology is the use of scientific knowledge for practical purposes or applications, whether in industry or in our everyday lives.
Tech is also an application of science used to solve problems. It is important to know that tech and science are different subjects which work hand-in-hand to accomplish specific tasks or solve problems. We apply tech in almost everything we do in our daily lives; we use tech at work, we use tech for communication, transportation, learning, manufacturing, securing data, scaling businesses, and so much more.
Tech is human knowledge which involves tools, materials, and systems.
The application of tech typically results in products. If tech is well applied, it can greatly benefit humans. If not applied properly and used for malicious reasons, the opposite is true.
Many businesses are using tech to stay competitive, to create new products, to create new and better services, as well as to deliver those products and services to their customers on time and within budget. Great examples of sucessful compnanies at the forefront of technology are mobile phone companies like Apple and Samsung. These mobile empires are constintanly creating new smartphones and other electronic devices, continually staing ahead of the competition, and advancing technology.
Technology is dynamic; it keeps on improving because our needs and demands for tech keep evolving and changing. We have moved from the industrial age (industrial revolution) to the information age (industrial revolution).
During the industrial age, companies with large sums of capital had the potential of employing expensive technological tools to gain the competitive advantage; small businesses had less potential because they could not afford expensive manufacturing or processing tools. However, advancement in technology has created a new economic environment which depends on information, and that is what we call the Information Age, or Computer Age, or Digital Age, or New Media Age.
The New Age, whatever you want to call it, provides a different work environment and this has helped small businesses gain position in highly competitive markets.
