What Is the Relevance of Technology?

“Technology over the long haul is immaterial.” That is the thing that a client of mine revealed to me when I made an introduction to him about another item. I had been discussing the item’s components and benefits and recorded “cutting edge technology” or something to that effect, as one of them. That is the point at which he put forth his expression. I understood later that he was right, in any event inside the setting of how I utilized “Technology” in my introduction. Be that as it may, I started considering whether he could be appropriate in different settings too.

What Is the Relevance of Technology?

The impact of all the unique technologies on people is exceptionally huge. Technology began with the change of current assets into straightforward hand instruments. Fire, for example, assumed an incredible part in the progression of old technology. Its revelation and control was the start of the numerous and has raised to puzzling statues like the web today. It applies to note that not all headways in the field have encouraged peace and made life simpler. Atomic weapons and their preferences are obviously, utterly ruinous.

All the large economies on the planet today rely on upon technology. It is protected to expect that they would not get this far but rather for innovative headways. There is likewise the issue of contamination and the exhaustion of natural assets thus of procedures that use computer technology. This diminishes the nature of the earth and the estimation of the earth when all is said in done. Strikingly, late reviews have found that different primates complete exercises that indicate a comprehension of essential new technology inventions.

What is Technology?

What is Technology?

Merriam-Webster characterizes it as:


a: the commonsense utilization of learning particularly in a specific territory: designing 2 <medical technology>

b: an ability is given by the down to earth utilization of learning <an auto’s fuel-sparing technology>


: a way of fulfilling an errand particularly utilizing specialized procedures, techniques, or learning


: the specific parts of a specific field of attempt <educational technology>

Wikipedia characterizes it as:

Technology (from Greek τî­χνη, techne, “craftsmanship, aptitude, sly of hand”; and – λογî¯α, – logia[1]) is the making, change, use, and learning of apparatuses, machines, procedures, specialties, frameworks, and strategies for association, keeping in mind the end goal to take care of an issue, enhance a previous answer for an issue, accomplish an objective, handle a connected info/yield connection or play out a particular capacity. It can likewise allude to the accumulation of such instruments, including hardware, alterations, courses of action and strategies. Technologies altogether influence human and also other creature species’ capacity to control and adjust to their native habitats. The term can either be connected or to particular territories: illustrations incorporate construction technology, medical technology, and information technology.



Both definitions rotate around a similar thing – application and utilization.

Technology is an empowering influence

Technology is an empowering influence

Many individuals erroneously trust it is technology which drives advancement. From the definitions over, that is, of course, not the situation. It is an open door which characterizes advancement and technology which empowers development. Think about the exemplary “From a superior mousetrap” illustration instructed in many business colleges. You may have the technology to manufacture a superior mousetrap, however, if you have no mice or the old mousetrap functions admirably, there is no open door, and afterward, the technology to construct a superior one ends up plainly unessential. Then again, if you are overwhelmed with mice, then the open door exists to develop an item utilizing your technology.

Another case, one with which I am personally recognizable, are customer gadgets new businesses. I’ve been related with both those that succeeded and those that fizzled. Each had novel driving edge technologies. The distinction was an open door. Those that fizzled couldn’t discover the chance to build up a significant advancement utilizing their technology. To survive, these organizations needed to transform frequently into something unique, and on the off chance that they were fortunate, they could exploit subsidiaries of their unique technology. As a general rule, the first technology ended up in the piece load. Technology, in this way, is an empowering influence whose final incentivized offer is to make changes to our lives. To be applicable, it should be utilized to make developments that are driven by circumstance.

Technology as an upper hand?

Technology as an upper hand?

Many organizations list a technology as one of their upper hands. Is this legitimate? Now and again yes, yet As a rule no.

Technology creates along two ways – a developmental way and a dangerous way.

A progressive technology is one which empowers new businesses or empowers answers for issues that were beforehand unrealistic. Semiconductor technology is a decent illustration. Not exclusively did it bring forth new enterprises and items. However, it brought forth other progressive technologies – transistor technology, incorporated circuit technology, microchip technology. All who give some the items and administrations we devour today. Is semiconductor technology an upper hand? Taking a gander at the number of semiconductor organizations that exist today (with new ones shaping each day), I’d say not. What about microchip technology? Once more, no. Heaps of microchip organizations out there. What about quad-center microchip technology? Not the same number of organizations, but rather you have Intel, AMD, ARM, and a large group of organizations building custom quad-center processors (Apple, Samsung, Qualcomm, and so forth ). So once more, a sorry upper hand. Rivalry from contending technologies and simple access to IP mitigates the clear upper hand of a specific technology. Android v. iOS is a valid example of how this functions. Both practical frameworks are subsidiaries of UNIX. Apple utilized their technology to present iOS and picked up an early market advantage. In any case, Google, using their variation of Unix (a contending technology), got up to speed rapidly. The explanations behind this lie not in the key technology, but rather in how the items made conceivable by those technologies were conveyed to market (free versus walled cultivate, and so forth.) and the distinctions in the key dreams of each organization.

Developmental technology is one which incrementally expands upon the progressive base technology. In any case, by its unusual nature, the incremental change is less demanding for a contender to match or jump. Take for instance alien mobile phone technology. Organization V presented 4G items before Organization An and keeping in mind that it might have had a temporary advantage when Organization A presented their 4G items, the advantage because of technology vanished. The buyer backpedaled to picking Organization An or Organization V gave value, administration, scope, whatever, yet not in light of technology. Along these lines, technology may have been significant temporarily, however in the long haul, wound up plainly unessential.

In this day and age, technologies have a tendency to end up commoditized rapidly, and inside a specific technology news lies the seeds of its demise.

Technology’s Relevance

Technology's Relevance

This article was composed of an end client. From an engineer/fashioner angle, things get murkier. The further one is expelled from the technology, the less significant it progresses toward becoming. To a designer, the technology can resemble an item. An empowering item, however an item in any case, and in this manner it is exceedingly pertinent. Bose utilizes an exclusive flag handling technology to empower items that meet an arrangement of market necessities and accordingly the technology and what it empowers is important to them. Their clients are more worried about how it sounds, what’s the value, what’s the quality, and so forth., and less with how it is accomplished. Consequently, the technology utilized is substantially less applicable to them.

As of late, I was included in an examination on Google+ about the new Motorola X telephone. A considerable measure of the general population on those posts pummeled the telephone for different reasons – cost, bolted bootloader, and so on. There were likewise a lot of thumps on the way that it didn’t have a quad-center processor like the S4 or HTC One which were also evaluated. What they neglected to handle is that whether the maker utilized 1, 2, 4, or 8 centers, at last, has no effect the length of the telephone can convey an aggressive (or even best of class) list of capabilities, usefulness, cost, and client encounter. The iPhone is a standout amongst the best telephones at any point created, but then it keeps running on a dual center processor. Regardless it conveys one of the best client encounters available. The elements that are empowered by the technology are what are important to the shopper, not simply the technology.

The relevance of technology, in this manner, is an empowering influence, not as an item highlight or an upper hand, or any heap of different things – an empowering influence. Taking a gander at the Android working framework, it is an amazing bit of software technology, but then Google gives it away. Why? On account of independent, it does nothing for Google. Giving it away permits different organizations to utilize their aptitude to fabricate items and administrations which then go about as empowering agents for Google’s items and administrations. To Google, that is the place the good esteem is.

The ownership of or access to technology is critical for what it empowers you to do – make developments which take care of issues. That is the true relevance of technology.
