„Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven.                                                                                                                        I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.”   Bill Gates             

The Digital Revolution, also called the Third Industrial Revolution is the advancement of technology from analog electronic and mechanical devices to the digital technology available today.
