Push Technology


Definition: Push technology delivers data automatically into the user’s computer at prescribed intervals or based on some event that occurs.

What This Means: When using push technology, the user does not need to do anything to get data. The choice of whether to use push or pull technology is dependent upon the workflow for a given task. E-mail is an example of a push technology—it is delivered to the user automatically. (Contrast with Pull Technology.)
