There are some people in the world who are making a reputation for themselves thanks to their exceptional work, and people will remember them for generations to come. A new definition of the world arose as a result of his or her construction. Some outstanding researchers offered a fresh foundation for their amazing discoveries, the science-based hypothesis. But have you ever questioned what kind of mentality these people had to accomplish such amazing things despite their poor academic performance and neglect of their daily tasks. We are telling you about these great, clever, and prominent people who, by their original work and efforts, altered the way the world thought and who are referred to be the great, intelligent people of the world.

The world is full of different people. All these categories of people live in it, people who are full of different abilities, different thoughts, different talents as well as lazy and weak vision people who are not interested in any activities. We already know how great philosophers and scholars of the past experimented with technologies and made various discoveries and introductions and innovations. So, such people are not limited to the past. There are unique people among us today who look at something differently than others or learn something through trial and error.   

Technology is nothing new to us now. But the technology is getting updated day by day. There are many characters among us who have succeeded in their lives by introducing new things to the world and creating new business opportunities by using the new technology in a new way. So, in this article, I hope to present to you some world-famous characters that have conquered life as well as the business world by using technology effectively.

There are hundreds of additional people who have pushed the IT business and its technologies inexorably forward for every household name with fortune – think Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Michael Dell. Their immediate motivation has rarely been fame and wealth. The greatest in IT have a passion for using technology to change the world. Sometimes they have changed technology, other times they have affected how technology is promoted, and other times they have fundamentally changed how society vies IT.  

We all know that the world-famous characters like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jack Ma are among the people who conquered the technical world. Indeed, technological changes are based on the thinking ability of individuals. That is to look at something in a different way, try to adopt innovations to create something different from it, and take the failures as a blessing and learn something new through the failures and always work positively. People who do not back down in the face of failure can achieve a successful end and a successful outlook. This is not just about technology. Common for any work.

Some amazing people who have been eternal in the minds of humanity for all time have contributed to the history of human civilization. A sophisticated world is unimaginable without such amazing individuals. So, the world-famous characters we all know are actually people who challenged challenges. They engaged in many experiments, even risking their lives. They always expected a successful outcome and output from their endeavors. Also, there are a very large number of people who have made a new revolution in the field of information technology. Naming and listing all those people are a very difficult task, but most of them are listed below. Both familiar and unfamiliar characters are included here.

Below are some brief descriptions of a few people selected from the above list and the huge revolutions they have made using information technology and the wonderful introductions they have made to the world of technology globally.

Steve Jobs

Due to the devoted fan base he has built through his groundbreaking work in personal computing and product design, Steve Jobs, the co-founder and CEO of Apple Computer, came out on top in Computer Weekly’s 40th anniversary poll.

Jobs was born in San Francisco in 1955, and while still in high school, he demonstrated his early interest in computers by attending after-school seminars at the Hewlett-Packard Company in Palo Alto, California. During a summer employment at HP, he got to know fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Jobs started joining Wozniak at Homebrew Computer Club meetings in the fall of 1974 after quitting his studies after just one term. He accepted a position as a technician at the well-known video game maker Atari.

The Lisa was the first personal computer with a graphical user interface (GUI), which was introduced by Apple in 1983 and was a key development in democratizing computing. It failed due to its prohibitive price, but the following year Apple introduced the distinctive, more affordable Macintosh, which turned out to be the first commercially successful GUI system.

Although a lot of Next’s innovations were not particularly successful commercially, they set the groundwork for later advancements in computing. The business was a pioneer in Ethernet port connectivity, collaborative software, and object-oriented software development systems. Tim Berners-Lee was able to create the original global web system at Cern thanks to the Next interface builder.

Apple was struggling without Jobs. It struggled to release new operating systems, which resulted in a decline in market share. The company’s response was to purchase Next, the cutting-edge operating system it developed along with, along with Jobs’ flamboyant former CEO, and welcome them back.

With the introduction of the iMac and iPod, Jobs pushed Apple further into the consumer electronics and computing markets after returning. Then, on October 5, 2011, after a protracted fight with cancer, Steve Jobs passed away, but his place in computing history is undeniable.

Tim Berners -Lee

The world wide web was created in 1990 when Tim Berners-Lee took the creative risk of fusing the internet and the hypertext idea. From 1976 to 1980, he worked as a programmer at Plessey Telecommunications before starting as an independent contractor at the European Nuclear Research Center (Cern).

To make it easier for academics to share and update material, Berners-Lee proposed a project in December 1980 based on the idea of hypertext. He created the Enquire prototype system while he was there.

In 1984, as a fellow, he began working full-time at Cern. In 1984, as a fellow, he began working full-time at Cern. Berners-Lee recognized an opportunity when Cern became the biggest internet node in Europe in 1989. The world wide web was created when he remarked, “I just had to take the hypertext notion and tie it to the TCP and DNS principles.”

He invented the first web browser and editor, named World-wide Web and based on Nextstep, as well as the first web server, known as Hypertext Transfer Protocol Daemon, for the worldwide web using concepts similar to those underlying the Enquire system (HTTPD). On August 6, 1991, the first website was launched and could be found at http://info.cern.ch/.

Even today, people still use the URL. It gave explanations of how to use a browser, how to set up a web server, and how the world wide web works. Additionally, Berners-Lee kept a list of other websites, making it the first web directory in history. World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was established by Berners-Lee at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1994. It was made up of several businesses that were eager to develop guidelines and standards to raise the caliber of the web.

No patent or fees were required, and Berners-Lee freely shared his ideas. Working with his longtime research partner Nigel Shad bolt as a member of Christ Church College, he is currently a professor at the University of Oxford’s Department of Computer Science. In the United States, he is also a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and he will continue to work with the World Wide Web Foundation and the World Wide Web Consortium to shape the future of the web.

Arthur C. Clarke

In his predictions of how technology will alter the world, author Arthur C. Clarke of 2001: A Space Odyssey has constantly been ahead of his time. He most famously proposed that geostationary satellites would make perfect communications relays in 1945.

Bill Gates

The way Bill Gates approached technology and business, as a co-founder of Microsoft, the largest software corporation in the world, was crucial in democratizing technology.

At Harvard University, where Gates entered in 1973, he met Steve Ballmer, a future business partner. Their initial project involved creating a Basic programming language adaptation for the Altair 8800, one of the first microcomputers.

Soon after, Gates and Allen quit their jobs at Harvard to start “Micro-Soft,” which subsequently evolved into Microsoft Corporation. When Gates started selling his MS-Dos operating systems as licenses to makers of IBM PC clones, Microsoft really took off. With the addition of Windows as a graphical user interface to its Dos command line, it resumed its quest for world hegemony.

Gates fought valiantly to build Microsoft’s dominant position in the software business and even more valiantly to maintain it. Gates became one of the richest men in the world because to his ability to get Microsoft software pre-installed on the majority of PCs delivered worldwide. This helped Microsoft become the largest software company. Additionally, it meant that both in the US and Europe, Microsoft was on the receiving end of antitrust laws.

In order to concentrate on software development, Gates resigned as Microsoft’s CEO in 2000. On June 16, 2006, he stated that he would transition to a part-time position with Microsoft in 2008 so that he could concentrate on his charitable work. About £15.5 billion, or one-third of his wealth, has been donated to charity by Gates since 2000.

James Gosling

James Gosling is the true geek among your selection of the most important figures in IT. Gosling earned a PhD in computer science and made a technical contribution to software creation, unlike Bill Gates and Steve Jobs who did not complete college.

Gosling earned a BSc in computer science from the University of Calgary in 1977, and while pursuing his doctorate, he developed the first iteration of the Emacs text editor for Unix (Gosmacs). Before entering the field, he also created a multi-processor version of Unix, a number of compilers, and mail systems.

Gosling joined Sun Microsystems in 1984, and he is currently the chief technology officer for the developer product division. Gosling began working for Sun Microsystems in 1984, where he is now chief technology officer for the developer product division. Early in the 1990s, Gosling started and oversaw the Green project, afterwards known as Java. Green wanted to create software that would work across a range of computing platforms without having to be specifically tailored for each one.

In 1995, Sun formally released Java. Gosling created Java’s initial design as well as the original compiler and virtual machine. He was elected to the US National Academy of Engineering for this accomplishment. In addition, he has significantly improved a number of other software platforms, including Newa and Gosling Emacs.

Linus Torvalds

Being the architect of the Linux operating system, Linus Torvalds has been a major influence behind the open source movement, which not only poses a constant challenge to proprietary software but also serves as an impetus for the industry to adopt open standards.

We have something to learn from the failures in everything we do. That is the method we are using, and the resources are not suitable for it. So, we can remove the irrelevant things and try with something else that suits it. The best example we can take for this is Mr. Thomas Alva Edison who invented the light bulb. He failed his research 999 times. But he did not give up on the investigation. He succeeded for the thousandth time. Finally, he said that he had learned about 999 cases where the research process could go wrong.

So, for our success, we should make an example of such things. Today, technology has developed in a very powerful way all over the world. There is hardly any industry that does not utilize technology. Similarly, information technology also has a high place. Information technology helps us to do every task very easily.

If you think about it a little, a businessman who runs a small business today, if he sees no improvement in his business when he looks at in 5 or 10 years, if he haven’t any growth he is a failed businessman. But the person who utilizes the existing technology to improve his business and identify business opportunities and seize them is a successful businessman.

Now a days Mobile phones are not new to us. Everyone, regardless of age, has a mobile phone. Everyone is on the phone. Build relationships in social networks and maintain relationships locally, locally and internationally. Therefore, information technology has helped us to build new relationships. So we can use this as an opportunity to achieve our success. For example, any businessman has the opportunity to use online systems to inform the world community about his business and to advertise the business using this information technology. In fact, this information technology has provided us many facilities to do our work easily. We need to know and take advantage of it.

If a person is able to recognize the opportunities available to him and achieve them, he becomes a very successful person. This is based on our thinking power. The essence of our lives rests on the ability to see differently, think differently and accept challenges without fear.

And so is information technology. It is also a changing topic that is updated day by day. Electronic market systems are already in operation. It is very easy to buy and sell goods and order. It is possible to get the goods we need without going to the market. All these facilities are provided to us because of information technology.

So, according to that, we can use information technology in our affairs easily, and we can use information technology to conquer the business world and get good results. What is needed is to look at information technology differently. If we learn to think in a different way, we can make our lives successful through information technology.
