ICT is information and communications technology or information and communication technology, it is often used as an extended synonym for information technology (IT) but is usually a more general term that demonstrates the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), intelligent building management systems and audio-visual systems in modern information technology. ICT consists of all technical means used to handle information and aid communication, including computer and network hardware, communication middleware as well as necessary software.
