B-Comp Tech-Talk: Technical Jargon Explained

This Month: What is Considered IT Equipment?

Welcome to B-Comp Tech-Talk: a monthly blog series that explains technical jargon in simple terms. Last month we focused on the definition of bandwidth. This month we will describe the different types of information technology (IT) equipment.   

IT equipment encompasses a wide range of hardware, software and peripherals to make computers and computer systems work. For personal use, you might have a desktop or laptop computer that you use at home. Inside those units there will be a microprocessor (CPU), circuit board, random access memory (RAM), hard drive, video card, optical drive (DVD or CD drive), network cards and external (USB) ports. Those are all parts of the IT equipment that make the laptop run.

There are also external components that connect to a desktop or laptop to expand functionality: printers, scanners, portable hard drives, keyboards, wireless mice, software programs, routers, etc.

Beyond the small scale, singular PC or laptop, there are other types of IT equipment that can connect many computers together and allow for the storage, processing and transfer of information among those computers. These include servers, networking equipment, storage, backup programs and even cloud computing.

In a business setting, it is important to implement the right IT equipment to support your business needs in the most streamlined manner possible. An IT professional can help you identify the best systems to help your company communicate effectively and reliably. You need systems that are durable and secure to protect your company and customer information.

Once implemented, you need a strong IT professional, department or external IT resource to help you maintain your systems, troubleshoot problems quickly and manage the entire process.
