Acronymns make it easier for us to remember things. I remember in school, when studying, I would try and make important points into acronyms to remember them. South Africa like their acronyms. They will find weird acronyms for every organisation, process or idea. The IT and computer industry is not without their fair share of acronyms. Here is a list of acronyms from the IT industry in a way you might not have read before.
