Like law, IT has adopted its own line of ‘legalese’ (the specialised language of the legal profession). IT lingo is a blend of acronyms and sometimes reclaimed phrases from other areas of life. So it’s natural to speak to a technical professional and not fully understand what they’re saying. Google is often a help but unless you’re furiously writing down the conversation, it’s good to have a centralised hub of IT definitions at hand.
Here’s a useful cloud glossary which include quick-fire definitions around edge computing, big data and computer clusters. We chose the following phrases as some we feel are often heard or read on social media feeds or media outlets, but have not been explained. While others terms could be completely foreign to your IT vocabulary. If you have any other confusing tech terminology that you want to share, feel free to contact the team. The next cloud glossary will feature more advanced terms that we hope will help you on your digital journey.
