We know the world of IT and computing can be complex, but we think our dictionary of computing jargon-buster might just help people struggling with a few technical words and phrases we in the industry probably take for granted.
The cloud is an enormous part of billions of peoples’ lives around the world, so we wanted to look at just how well the general public understood fairly common terms. Services like Apple’s iCloud or Google Drive are used daily by a huge number of people, yet a large number wouldn’t recognise them as cloud-based services. Add that to the fifth of people that appear to have missed the cryptocurrency ups and downs of the last few months, and we think our Dictionary could be a bit of educational fun!
