The WAND Information Technology Taxonomy has undergone an update. Wand has added IT Security as a Top Level Term and expanded Technologies and Fields to include Artificial Intelligence, Digital Mesh, Emerging Data Storage Technologies, Internet of Things and more. Data concepts include modeling, analyzing, and visualizing data. Basically, data is a key ingredient in most information technology environments and we wanted to be sure that Data was well reflected in our taxonomy.
Just as Data is important in IT, so is the front end design – Computer Graphics and Web Design covers GUI and front end related topics. Finally, all of these ingredients of IT applications are used in various fields or applications.
Development also underwent a major expansion in Applications, Development Tools, Languages, Operating Systems versions, Protocols and the areas in Software Development.
The WAND Information Technology Taxonomy still includes terms in the areas of IT Administration, IT Certifications, Development, Service Providers, and Software Programs and Applications and each of these branches were updated in this revision.
This taxonomy now has 6,772 terms and 1,337 synonyms.
The WAND Information Technology Taxonomy can be customized to include specific terms to meet the needs of any Information Technology Department.
As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Information Technology Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
