Information technology

Information has existed throughout time. So has information technology.

From pigeon to satellite; it is technology that conveys the message and wants to deliver it exactly. Speed and quantity are already critical factors. Information technology is difficult to define comprehensively. It is technology that focuses on the preparation, conveying or delivery of the information, usually in electronic form. But there is "so much surrounding it" it and there is "so much going through" it.

This is because many aspects play a role, such as the ICT equipment, chips, software, copper and fibre-optics, business security and privacy, "big" and "small" ether frequencies (TV, radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DECT), electromagnetic radiation.

Then there are the conditions defined by people, such as reliability, speed, technical standardisations, security and privacy. And that in turn is followed by aspects such as guarantees and liability, not only for the supplier or customer but also for intermediaries such as hosting parties or internet search engines.

Classic products such as newspapers, books and movies, as well as classic services such as courses, brokerage or accountancy, are transformed into an electronic service or product; see eBooks and eLearning. There are few sectors in society where information technology does not yet play a role. Since the late nineties, there has been an upward trend from incidental to structural remote buying (e-commerce) and from incidental remote working (VPN) to frequent remote working such as conveyed by the "new way of working". The "Digital Library" (of the National Library 2012) where eBooks can be borrowed, marks the farewell to paper. These developments are also reflected in case law and our legal practice. As an office, we focus on these innovations and technology, and we look forward to offering our expertise to assist you.
