TECHNOLOGICAL GLOBALIZATION 2 IT Strategic Plan State of Current Technologies Lee and Mary’s Gourmet Ice Cream Company has been in business for over 40 years. Their infrastructure is out-of-date, but suitable for its stateside operations. However this infrastructure is not set up for long term sustainability or the demanding task ahead of making the company a global force.

    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.
