EFFECTIVE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Book Review   by:juniorcity     Original Author: R.OLUNLADE
ª
 
Information technology is the collection,storage,processing and dissemination of information to the users.it is not confined to hardware and soft ware alone,but acknowledge the importance of man and the goals he sets for information technology,the values employed in making these choices and the assessment criteria used to decide whether he is controlling the technology and is being enriched by it.The changing nature of our social structure should channel official thinking towards the need for a national information policy.if we fail to recognise the liberating and humanizing potencial of information technology,we may create and strengthen the power of the management elite,circumscribe freedom,and create a new kid of rich-poor gap between those who regardless of economic status,know how to command the information technology and those who do not.The fact is that half of the cost of running the economy is the cost of information.The public and,to some extent,the smaller institutions need to appreciaate the importance of information technology.And unless the nation can develop a reasonable national information delivery system that can provide knowledge to the citizens,there will be a dangerous increase in the problems of social injustice which already exist in society.
It is not to satisfy the information needs of the people within a pre-industrial society.The obstacles are obvious.One of the major problems which beset the nation is poor or indequate infrastructural facilities.Another problem is under-utilization of locally produced information for development purposes.Manpower shortage is also a major obstacle.Despite the emphasis on,and the sound development of education and traning facilities,the existing services employ inadequately trained staff.in addition,the low pay and,often,poor job status,discourage people of the right calibre from enlisting in these establishments.futhermore,traning is still based on traditional patterns which are not in line with todays information development needs.finally,lets make use of technology because it may be effective to us in future.
