Information technology is the use of systems such as computers and telecommunications to create, process, store, retrieve, and exchange all kinds of electronic data and information. Information Technology has single-handedly fast-tracked global development, increased access through boundless innovations, improved living standards, and even life expectancy.
However, the global digital divide remains as scorching as the development inequality between leading capitalist communities and the rest of the world. Information Technology and its numerous benefits to society and individuals in developing communities are still at abysmal averages.
As a basic human need in the modern world, Compassionate Capitalism is committed to bridging the development divide in Information Technology, observing the divide through the lens of the development ranking, and creating initiatives to increase access through knowledge and information, capital investments, credit facilities, local IT manufacturing and more.
