What does it mean to be IT Literate?

Wikipedia, quoting the US National Forum, states "IT literacy is the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand."

Real IT literacy lies in the fact that technology is a tool that should be used to improve your business, by providing a competitive advantage that provides faster work, more efficient work, and access to data and information not previously available. IT Literacy is the awareness and understanding of IT technologies in order to make your company better. You do not need to be an IT guru, but you do need to be aware of what is available in the IT sphere that can help your company.

It is your responsibility to keep abrest of possibilities and talk to IT people and pick their brains about what latest developments are available. In this chapter, we aim to stimulate you with various possibilities tapping into latest IT technology.
