Capability Road Map

Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems, or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or serve some purpose. The word technology comes from the Greek technología (τεχνολογία) — téchnē (τέχνη), an "art", "skill" or "craft" and -logía (-λογία), the study of something, or the branch of knowledge of a discipline.[1] The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technology, medical technology, and information technology.
