Statistics and market data on Technology & Telecommunications

Technology & Telecommunications statistics
One of the most marked developments in the field of telecommunications and technology in the last few decades has been enabling people to get in touch with one another quickly, through numerous means, while on the go. Communications and its ever-strengthening connection to mobility has become the most significant telecommunications development of recent years; allowing people to juggle daily schedules, home life and work. Major tech companies like Apple, manufacture such devices and constantly develop them so that they continue to meet new organisational challenges presented during the course of every day life. Statistics dealing with the telecommunication industry display many current and exciting trends in this field.


Wireless telecommunication was first achieved with the invention of the radio at the beginning of the 20th century. This revolutionized and significantly sped up communication over long distances, as a new, quick way

Convincing Skeptical Employees to Adopt New Technology

MAR15_19_162259270

Bringing new technology and tools into your organization can increase productivity, boost sales, and help you make better, faster decisions. But getting every employee on board is often a challenge. What can you do to increase early and rapid adoption? How can you incentivize and reward employees who use it? And should you reprimand those who don’t?

What the Experts Say
According to a study by MIT Sloan Management Review and Capgemini Consulting, the vast majority of managers believe that “achieving digital transformation is critical” to their organizations. However, 63% said the pace of technological change in their workplaces is too slow, primarily due to a “lack of urgency” and poor communication about the strategic benefits of new tools. “Employees need to understand why [the new technology] is an improvement from what they had before,” says Didier Bonnet, coauthor of Leading Digital and Global Practice Leader at Capgemini Consulting, who

Aviation | ASTE | USU

Utah State University offers multiple degrees in Aviation Technology at various levels. From a minor to a master, the robust program will allow students to become equipped with the skills they need in the industry they love – all while nestled in the beautiful Cache Valley which allows a unique training experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

The aviation technology program prides itself in applying cutting-edge technology with exceptional training to produce high quality pilots and technicians the industry needs. Two B.S. degrees are offered in the aviation technology program — professional pilot and maintenance management. Professional pilot students must choose an emphasis: fixed wing or rotorcraft. These students receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications and are trained to be commercial pilots. All pilot students will take core classes in weather, aviation law, and human factors in safety. They will also take emphasis courses that will help them develop

What is information technology (IT)?

Information technology (IT) is the use of any computers, storage, networking and other physical devices, infrastructure and processes to create, process, store, secure and exchange all forms of electronic data. Typically, IT is used in the context of enterprise operations as opposed to personal or entertainment technologies. The commercial use of IT encompasses both computer technology and telephony.

The term information technology was coined by the Harvard Business Review, in order to make a distinction between purpose-built machines designed to perform a limited scope of functions and general-purpose computing machines that could be programmed for various tasks. As the IT industry evolved from the mid-20th century, computing capability advanced while device cost and energy consumption fell lower, a cycle that continues today when new technologies emerge.

IT software and hardware

IT includes several layers of physical equipment (hardware), virtualization and management or automation tools, operating systems and applications

Making stuff from scratch in the wild

I bought a new property to shoot primitive technology videos on. The new area is dense tropical rainforest with a permanent creek. Starting completely from scratch, my first project was to build a simple dome hut and make a fire. First, I took some wood, Abroma mollis, for fire sticks. I knapped a small stone blade and used it to strip the fire sicks. Palm fibre was then taken for the tinder. The fire stick kit was then placed under a palm leaf to keep it out of the rain.

Next, a stone from the creek was fashioned into a simple hand axe. This was used to cut a staff that was used to clear a path to the hut location. The location for the hut was a clearing densely crowded by native raspberry. This was then cleared using the staff and a small 2.5 m circle was levelled

Brookings: Does the US tax code favor robots over people?

New research by Daron Acemoglu and MIT Economics PhD student Andrea Manera suggests that the US tax system’s low tax rates on capital and heavy taxation of labor systematically encourages firms to automate more tasks and use less labor.
