Computer security[edit]

Should we show mobile security under Information security?

Degree programs[edit]

ABET and ACM have collaborated in recent years to form accredition and Curriculum standards for degrees in Information Technology as a distinct field of study separate from both Computer Science and Information Systems. SIGITE is the ACM working group for defining these standards. The current criteria are included in the documents here. Accredited Programs currently exist at the US Naval Academy, Rochester Insitute of Technology, Purdue, and BYU among others. This information should probably be included somehow, I'm popping this info in the article, but feel free to modify it or move it if there is a more appropriate place.

Microprocessor[edit]

Information technology is about Microprocessor dynamics and this should be mentioned in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.36.109.73 (talk) 06:22, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Information technology existed long before the invention of microprocessors, don't you think?
I have no objection to its being mentioned. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 06:32, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and I have no idea of what "microprocessor dynamics" is, but perhaps someone wiser can enlighten me. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 06:46, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

What about microprocessor development on different applications throughout time? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.36.109.73 (talk) 06:48, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

What about it? Why does it matter what platform(s) were used to develop different applications? Eric Corbett 19:49, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

IT is System Administration[edit]

I realize the original definition of IT encompasses all of computer technology, including programming. But as somebody who works in the industry, I typically see the term IT is used, particularly in job ads, to mean sys admin. System administration, as a phrase, is not even mentioned in the article. Since apparently there are some strong feelings about what should be or not be in this article, I wanted to get some feedback here, rather than just jump in and add something.

It isn't my experience that IT means systems administration. You would need to cite sources for anything you want to add to the article by the way. --Michig (talk) 18:51, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
