What is an alias in PowerShell?

In general, Alias means giving command to other names. In system admin life, they want short and familiar commands. PowerShell has verb-noun cmdlets that are very systematic but not practical in everyday life. So the System admins use PowerShell alias. 

For example - Dir or ls for the Get-ChildItem, cat or gc for the Get-Content.
