If @ then that's the database alias - you're connecting in a client/server configuration and infotech is defined in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/tnsnames.ora.
Another way to do the same thing would be to set the environment variable TWO_TASK=infotech, then sqlplus scott/tiger would do the same thing.

If scott/tiger/infotech, no idea, never seen that syntax before, unless the password is "tiger/infotech".
I know about the tns file but what is TWO_TASK
Is it used to asign the default database alias?
