INTRODUCTION Information technology is the use of computers and other related devices to retrieve, store, manipulate and store data. Still involves computer networks for communication and sharing of resources among the connected organizations. Information technology is the central facilities in the organization. Has caused some many changes by making employees life much easier in terms of communication among them and even accessing information from other sources (Stiroh and Kevin, 2002), this concept we refer it as making the world a global village. The government also engaged its operation to make use of I. T to offer services to the public as found in (Heeks, 1999).
For better usage of information technology, there must be a set of rules and protocol to be followed as we will see that there're some activities which need to be regulated to avoid losses. Due to this that why we should engage the government and other standard making bodies set out how the I. T will be implemented and ensure all rules are followed.
Implementation of these rules may take long but in the long run will be established. Organizations are using information system, ensures the rules and protocol are well followed and provide their employees with the needed knowledge to control the work and perform the task effectively. let figure out its impact on the performance and the output of the organization. Advantages brought by the use of information technology. Internet is the core of information technology brings about the advantage of the organization to a company, an employee is able to access important data for making a big decision on management of the organization, brand of product to place on the market, means of advertising so as to beat other competing organization.
Enables employees to work in a different location far from the organization, also making it easier for the managers to monitor the business profit margin, workers, and even the trending issues in the job market.
It makes the communication with customer easier where clients can access the services anytime and with easier which in turns build a better relationship between the customers and the organization management. The Internet enables the organization to have a wide range of market since they can access almost the whole world and can offer services to any individual if there’ s internet access hence the sales tend to be more; in returns, more profit is made. The Internet also offers some useful communicating facilities like video calls, the virtual conference which enables the organization to meet and make a quick decision at the comfort of their seat ( Fernandez, Gonzalez and Sabherwal, 2004).
