ICT is an acronym that stands for "Information and Communications Technology" and is used often in the context of "ICT roadmap" to indicate the path that an organization will take with their ICT needs. Sample example of usage include Micosoft and The Australian Newspaper
The terms ICT should be read as "Information Technology and Communication Technology" literally to clarify its meaning which refers to the merging (convergence) of telephone networks with computer networks through a single cabling or link system. The term ICT has grown in usage out of huge economic incentives (huge cost saving due by eliminating the telephone network) to merge the telephone network with the computer network system. See VOIP. This in turn has spurred an industry to grow with organizations using the term ICT in their name's to indicate their specialization in the process of merging the two network systems together.
