Response to Kristen Miller I fully agree with your observations about open systems. I also wish to add that interoperability is a major advantage that open system brings to the fore. Other systems are a bit hard to work with especially because they require specific operating systems or configurations. However, with the open system, this barrier is addressed. Moreover, interoperability makes inter- organizational relationship easier as there is no need to change hardware or software, which may be very expensive. Response to Mary Jones I agree with you that the ability of open system to connect to different networks is good for business. Remember that management of supply chain relationship sometimes requires inter- organizational collaboration. This is difficult because sometimes there are compatibility issues and a lot of money has to be spent in replacing the software and hardwares. For small businesses

    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.
