This means the need to carry out activities aimed at improving the conditions for meeting the information needs of people in all spheres of society. Lack of literacy, low level of information culture, lack of desire complicate the process of informatization. In this regard, states are striving to improve the quality of education, increase investment in research, and improve the quality of labor.

The role of informatization in the development of society
In the course of history there were several informational revolutions, as a result of which cardinal jumps in the development of mankind took place.The first arose from the invention of writing, which led to the possibility of transferring knowledge to future generations. The second informational boom occurred in connection with typography, which significantly increased the knowledge of people.After the invention of electricity, a telephone, telegraph, and radio appeared, which made it possible to transmit information efficiently and quickly. The emergence of computers gave a strong impetus to the development, which led to the accumulation of new knowledge, the ability to quickly find the necessary data, the exchange of experience, etc. Information society can have negative consequences. In particular, the media have a great influence on it, which leads to the manipulation of public opinion. In addition, not everyone is keeping up with the development; it is difficult for many to adapt to constant changes. Placing certain information on the Internet can adversely affect people's privacy. Informatization of society is now a necessity. A large flow of information does not allow to perceive them fully. That is why the state should allocate funds for the continuous development of information technology.
