Societies are constantly in a state of transformation, and today this transformation is largely driven by the ongoing digitization of information. The way we are able to access and use information through devices such as cellphones, the Internet, databases, GPS, etc., was not so long ago more or less treated as mere science fiction. But nowadays such devices have become almost everyone’s tool.In this context IT might be defined as the single most important technology for the development of societies and industries. Not only through the use of desktop computers connected to a world wide web of information, but also through embedded IT applications that enable digitized information flows to integrate. One example of an industry greatly influenced by IT is the graphic industry, where for centuries the creation and distribution of information has been the main business.
