IRM seeks to translate between the various technical languages that are used in the administration and information technology areas. If a word that you believe should be defined here is not found, drop us a line! The ideal is for you to provide a definition, context and use example.

For an excellent glossary of technical terms related to information technology, we recommend the Free On-line Dictionary of Computing.
