The revolutionary advent of IT has accelerated the pace of day-to-day office, personal and corporate communication. However, even now, Bangladesh, despite its natural resources and easily trainable workforce, cannot cope with the evolution of technology when compared to most of the developed and developing countries. Of course, there are reasons behind the slow growth of technology in Bangladesh. Despite this IT implementation here has begun, albeit a little slowly in different private and public sectors. In Bangladesh, IT use is still in a backward stage in terms of information generation, utilization and applications. In the absence of any private entrepreneur, the government initiates and funds as many of these projects as possible.
