The four important historic milestones in the development of IST are related to the evolution of the internet are the internet 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0.
The Internet 1.0
Olliges (2020) indicated that first computers were linked together in a meaningful way, using network configuration called ARPANET in 1969. It was funded by the US military and computers first were hooked together in a meaningful way. This network was funded by the U.S. military, and four the University of California, Los Angeles, the Stanford Research Institute, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the University of Utah. The ARPANET’s technology implemented the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol suite (TCP/IP) consisting of large computers able to communicate with one another over physical distance (Olliges, 2020). The era of Web 1.0 classified webpages as static and viewable only.
Olliges, (2020) informed that Microsoft and Bill Gates dominated the technology industry through their sale of Microsoft Office. Bill Gates dreamed of the information superhighway,
which quickly integrated telephone, cable, and personal computer together. Olliges, (2020) further explained that a big bang occurred in 1995 when America Online (AOL) and internet service provider (ISP) Prodigy along CompuServe became the leaders in dial up internet providers and email service. The internet browsing here was very slow and the internet was a way to communicate via email in addition to phone lines. Wikipedia and YouTube are both products of the Web 2.0 era. During this era web pages were dynamic and allowed users to interact with webpages, share information with other users and buying merchandise or upload content. The Web 2.0 marked the start of the digital era.
Internet 3.0: The birth of Internet Based Commerce, Social Internet, and Smart Phones
Olliges (2020) explained that the Dot-Com bubble helped several companies to provide services on the internet and the internet 3.0 marked the proliferation of E-commerce. Companies like Amazon and Priceline exemplified the dot-com era. Moreover, social networks like Myspace, Facebook, and LinkedIn, created new social approach to internet users and forced organizations to consider the amount of data that these platforms could generate for business to take advantage of. Google, Facebook, and amazon started to build their own data warehouses cloud services to store and manage data of internet users. Big Data became big business. The proliferation of mobile devices accelerated the generation of data which created more need to more data storage warehouses for these companies.
Wang, Zhang, Lin, Chen, and Tang (2022) corroborated that the fourth industrial revolution will rely on the industrial Internet. The internet 4.0 integrates the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve industrial development. Industrial enterprises rely on the industrial Internet to complete the storage, management, and in-depth application of industrial data. The industrial Internet platform as the core of industrial Internet promotes the realization of Industry 4.0 through vertical integration, end-to-end integration, and horizontal integration of enterprises (Wang, Zhang, Lin, Chen, and Tang, 2022)
