Technology vs Information TechnologyTechnology may be primarily valued for physical functionality such as transportation. Information technology is primarily valued for functions related to data. Both IT and technology are can driven by software. The difference between the two comes down to the value that they deliver. A smart phone is primarily valued for the information it delivers and is typically considered information technology. A spacecraft, train or car is primarily valued for transportation and is thus seen as technology. Information technology has experienced a major boom due to the rapidly expanding speed of computing and the gains made in connecting information after the commercialization of the internet in the late 1990s. It is likely that this will fade to the background as technologies in areas such as space, transportation and energy experience new periods of rapid innovation.
