Though the types of technology used by businesses have changed over the last several decades, the role of business technology has remained remarkably constant. 2.

Business Intelligence (BI) changes the traditional flow of information so that the database goes to the individual rather than the individual going to the database. 16. One disadvantage of knowledge technology is that the information it provides is unfiltered, so the user may have to spend a lot of time sorting through unnecessary information. 17. In the coming years, successful information management will be more concerned with achieving and maintaining stability and predictability, and less concerned with adapting to change.
