Differentiation between Information Technology and Digital Technology

Information technology and digital technology
Information Technology
Information technology (IT) is the use of computers to store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered to be a subset of information and communications technology(ICT). Information technology is a growing field that offers relatively secure positions for those with solid technical skills and at least a bachelor's degree in an IT-related field. From support to engineering, there are several specializations that deal with the various facets of information technology.
The field of information technology (IT) covers the design, administration and support of computer and telecommunications systems. Some of the positions in this field include database and network administrators, computer support specialists, computer scientists, software programmers and system analysts. The majority of career tracks in IT entail design and operational tasks related to computer hardware components, networks and software applications.
Professionals in the IT field work with businesses and organizations to set up and support viable computer networks that will keep systems efficient and reliable. IT encompasses all hardware and software used in the storing, creation and accessing of information. Examples of technologies that professionals work with are firewalls, databases, media storage devices, networks and the Internet.
Digital Technology
Digital technology uses digital code to transmit signals and information between different devices. This can be done with things like television programs or human voices. The data is converted into strings of ones and zeros and moved quickly to the next machine, where it is converted back into media form.
In older forms of technology, like analog technology, this was done with pulses of electricity. However, analog systems often face size and speed limitations that digital technologies do not.
One of the most prolific uses of digital technology comes in the form of the popular cell phone market. Cellular phones utilize digital technology to transmit voices and other types of information. This type of digital technology has also been used in incremental stages along the way, such as cordless phones with good quality.
IT vs. Digital
The Indian IT sector has been a major partaker in shaping the country’s global trade and GDP, sizing up to a whopping $150 billion. Not just this, it has also been at the leading edge when it comes to generating white collar jobs and pulling up latent employment scenario of the economy. Universities and campuses all over the country have remained thronged by IT giants Infosys, Cognizant, Wipro, etc. for recruitments, but all is not good in the hood of late. With the IT sector eyeing a 14% job reduction in the coming few years.
The IT sector is said to see massive layoffs from the past few decades. Here’s why:
• The automation sector has risen with galloping pace, and is said to replace jobs which are monotonous and repetitive in nature, which are more or less the characteristics of a typical IT job. With the increase in technological advancements and economic investments, automation is on its way to bid against the IT sector with this competitive advantage.
• With the implementation of new visa rules by US President Donald Trump, the substantial amount of Indians working abroad (who form the major part of their InfoTech sector) are badly hit. India being a labour intensive economy, is unable to accommodate this sudden surge of incoming unemployed expats in our country, making the scenario all the more dismal. Not just US, but many foreign companies are freezing their intake of outstation employees, and are switching over to indigenous recruitments from their individual countries. Seven Group Mumbai is the one of top executive firm who serves vital services in IT and Digital Media. 
Most of the information people sense is analog in nature—that is, it varies constantly, and an infinite number of values can be assigned to the information. For example, the brightness of a light bulb dimmed gradually from on to off could be considered analog information. This infinite number of brightnesses can be quantized (broken up into ranges). If the possible brightnesses are broken into two ranges, then the values 0 and 1 can hold digital information relating to the brightness of the bulb. However, each of the two digits still represents a countless number of analog values. The ranges of brightnesses can be divided again and again, until there are thousands of ranges of values, each of which can be represented by a numerical value.
Once analog information has been quantized into digital information, it is impossible to perfectly reverse the process and re-create all of the possible analog signals from the corresponding digital signals. This is why most analog signals are represented by a great number of digital information levels. For example, the sound stored as digital information on a compact disc (CD) is broken down into 65,536 levels. A CD player translates the digital information into analog information so that a speaker can convert it into sound waves. 7 Group Mumbai is concerned about the protection of environment, our firm initiated a corporate social Program Called Seven Teaching & Oxygen Plantation (STOP).
Some devices process digital information using a tiny computer called a microprocessor. It performs calculations on digital information and then makes decisions based on the results. In such devices, computer chips called memory chips store digital information while it is not being processed. Software, which consists of instructions in the form of digital information, is used to control the sequence of operations in many devices that use digital technology.
The world is going digital, and the cloud makes it happen even more aggressively. Ever since the invention of the cloud, there have been newer inventions, better practices and happenings repeating. Seven Group Mumbai has dedicated team to work on all our services efficiently and satisfies our clients through our service.  
The future of digital technologies, is secure and bright with millions of job openings and careers waiting to be taken up. A lot of practitioner in fields of security, cloud and development are likely to see a happening scene, but this alone doesn’t restrict opportunities to just these fields.
Talking of the future, with the right knowledge and skills, it can be assumed to take swift turns.
