IT (Information Technology) and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) are now crucial for enterprises to be highly efficient and improve productivity, and therefore more profitable. Nowadays IoT (Internet of Things) has become the center of IT topics. Our researchers specialized in ICT industries extensively cover the latest technologies in progress that help benefit both enterprises and individual people.
ICT for Individual Users
People consider diverse ways of using ICT to efficiently achieve their objectives. Here are some technologies making individuals rather than enterprises easier and richer to live. E-learning and watch services are only a part of such technologies. A car driver enjoys ever-so-evolving car technologies from telematics to automated driving systems which still have some grades to attain until they accomplish the final goals. The market of ICT for the aged and long term care has been expanding, giving hopes to live in the society of decreasing birthrate and aging population.
Ever since ICT has brought about innovation to business, enterprises have become highly efficient in running their business. ERP (Enterprise Resources Planning) has developed at earlier stage and helped streamline the whole entity of a company to be more productive. IT outsourcing business was generated in the course of expanding demand for ICT-specializing teams. ICT has also developed to make innovative changes to the industries as well: FinTech for finance, InsurTech for insurance, CAD/CAM/CAE Systems and Cobots (collaborative robots) for manufacturing, to name a few. Smart Agriculture has helped traditional farming improve productivity, grow better crops, and minimize manual labor. In addition, IoT (Internet of Things) and AI have prominently become adopted in various types of business. The ideas of how to use them are just limitless. They can be used even for easier adoption of other ICT technologies. ICT installation sometimes still resorts to and requires tremendous amount of manual labor, which can be reduced by using IoT or AI. Various ICT technologies now intertwine and affect each other in industries, building intelligence in the entire society.
After the era of software, now everybody benefits from cloud-based services and IoT. Those services include PaaS (Platform as a service), SaaS (Software as a service) IaaS (Infrastructure as a service), and more recently Maas (Mobility as a service), which do not only make people as well as companies convenient, but can also innovates the whole society, eventually. Therefore, each member of the society, regardless of an individual user or a service provider, can involve in and be benefited.
