Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT).

    You are working as an IT consultant, but you asked about IT, this is strange. Have you some good books on IT? For broad/solid knowledge, you have to read some books based on IT. While IT is often used to describe computers/networks, it actually includes all layers of all systems, from the physical hardware to the operating systems/applications/databases/storage or Servers & many more. It is such kind of a concept that requires for information processing. However the definition is vast. The computer systems are central to information management, so computer departments within companies/universities/farms etc. are often called IT department. While it can be also known as Information Services/ Management Information Services.

    I'm with Subhendu. This is like a medical doctor asking what medicine is. Who are your typical clients? What are you trying to accomplish with them and in your overall career?

    I'm curious as well. if you are an IT consultant and are asking what IT is, what are your daily duties? Why did you become an IT consultant without knowing what the job is and where did you get your IT training to become the consultant? Very odd.
