Wisdom: The Missing Dimension in Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

The levels of knowledge hierarchy (i.e., data, information, knowledge, and wisdom), are described in the Qur’an, the ahadith, and the literature produced during Islamic civilization’s Golden Age. They also have been discussed by western and non-Muslim scholars. However, while implementing and using information and communication technology (ICT), only the first three levels are currently being explored and utilized.

However, such tools as decision-support systems and executive information systems comprise only data, information, and knowledge.
