In my opinion, there are several ways in which information technology has brought about out a tremendous change in the way in which the way business operate and their products and services. One of the most important advantages of using the information systems is that the IT systems eliminated time and regional limit. Because updated information systems such as wireless communications, including cell phones, computers and so on, can provide new and various way for company’s managers, common personnel, customers, suppliers to keep connect with their business partners at remote locations on a real time basis. More business can be done well. In addition, information systems can decrease the cost of communications. Meetings can be held by online conferencing with their business partners. As the customers are demanding more of business, some company involve their customers in the meeting so the products and services can be plan according to their need. Company can save a lot of money because they don’t pay for their personnel to travel remote place to meet their partners. As more and more people start using the Internet for their business or their personal reason, if companies don't adapt themselves to the trend and use the upcoming technologies, they will bound to fall behind. E-commerce can provide the way to customers to get the available goods and services through the website of the corresponding company. It means people can stay at home to make purchases. Last but not the least whether you are a business to business or business to consumers concern, you should make use of information technology to maximize profits. (b) Describe the characteristics of a digital firm.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
