The article discusses how convergence of information technology (IT) will affect companies. Information communications technology (ICT) skill standards were created by the National Skill Standards Board to define requirements for the IT industry and allow for the creation of a database of information for employers regarding IT positions. The adoption of ICT can require corporations to restructure their organization, change the nature of positions in the company, and change the level of knowledge and skills required for ICT workers. ICT organizations can be classified into groups to deal with application needs, ICT infrastructure, and service for clients and users.
