In this modern world “Digitization” is a must. It’s a key factor which speeds up the work at the faster the rate in comparison with the traditional paper work methodology. Digitization, or commonly digitalization is the process of converting information into a digital (i.e. computer-readable) format, in which the information is organized into bits. In modern practice, the digitized data is in the form of binary numbers, which facilitate computer processing and other operations, but, strictly speaking, digitizing simply means the conversion of analog source material into a numerical format i.e the decimal or any other number system that can be used instead. Digitization is of crucial importance to data processing, storage and transmission, because, it allows information of all kinds in all formats to be carried with the same efficiency and also intermingled. Unlike analog data, which typically suffers some loss of quality each time it is copied or transmitted, digital data can, in theory, be propagated indefinitely with absolutely no degradation. This is why it is a favored way of preserving information for many organisations around the world. Meaningful collaboration between people and machines must not subvert human creativity, feeling and questioning over speed, profit and efficiency Technology connects us to each other as never before, and in doing so makes explicit the degree to which we are defined and anticipated by others: the ways in which our ideas and identities do not simply belong to us, but are part of a larger human ebb and flow. Our machines aren’t minds yet, but they are taking on more and more of the attributes we used to think of as uniquely human: reason, action, reaction, language, logic, adaptation, learning. Rightly, fearfully, falteringly, we are beginning to ask what transforming consequences this latest extension and usurpation will bring
