Running head: Technological Globalization — MBT2 1 IT Strategic Plan Alakius Allen Western Governors University
TECHNOLOGICAL GLOBALIZATION — MBT2 2 Abstract Globalization can be thought of to be the result of the opening of the global economy and the concomitant increase in trade between nations. In other words, when countries that were previously closed to trade and foreign investment open their economies and go global, the result is an increasing interconnectedness and integration of the economies of the world. Globalization is the free movement of goods, services and people across the world in a seamless and integrated manner.
TECHNOLOGICAL GLOBALIZATION — MBT2 3 IT Strategic Plan Summary of the State of Current Technologies Lee and Mary’s Gourmet Ice Cream Company has existed for over 4 decades. Their infrastructure in antiquated and not set up for sustainability or the arduous task ahead of them. Recommended Changes to Data Storage In today's business climate companies can produce more data than ever before. Deliberately, storage technology is cheaper and more abundant than ever before. For small and emerging businesses, going global is a significant undertaking that could disturb existing business activities. I recommend the company insert cloud storage, Cloud storage will allow our company to store large amounts of data without having to worry about doing it on internal servers. Cloud storage services will store our files, but they may not be designed to protect our data. And while some backup services offer folder-syncing, there are still few syncing services that offer true backup capabilities. Although cloud storage may sound eerie, it's not that different than a storage system we would host ourselves. It is made up of multiple servers in different physical locations that include software, hardware, and services that are accessible through the internet. Many cloud storage and backup providers will offer the essentials, like data storage, backup, and encryption services. But there are many more options available to us, like file sharing, collaboration, workflow, application development, and integration with email, browsers, and other applications.
TECHNOLOGICAL GLOBALIZATION — MBT2 4 Recommended Changes to Unified Communications Technology is changing the way we participate in many of our daily activities. It has knock down barriers we have in our communications and resulted in an overload of information. I am a firm believer that the prompt changes in business communications tools should focus on supporting our productivity, flexibility and transparency. Productivity because this will have a direct effect on our end product. Flexibility because the way we work and live has drastically changed, work is no longer expressed as somewhere we go, but as something that we do. And lastly transparency because our organizational chart has become level and our employees need access to their information immediately, so rather than having to pause service delivery to customers who can choose another vendor at the click of a mouse.
