which the new generation mobile technologies are emerging may incur substantial investment and service disruptions, which may result into an imminent adverse impact on the business and financial performance. Additionally, development of applications related to new technologies will take enormous cost and risk, putting firms through unexpected hardships in developing newer competencies. Disruption in communication technologies forced companies to scrap investments already made in the older generation technologies each time and incur massive costs and engineering efforts worth billions to rebuild the resource and infrastructure (Bernhard, Michae, Biljana, & Valerio, 2014). The endless succession of new generation technologies disrupts the whole ecosystem of related competence. For example, upgrade in Universal Mobile Telecommunication Standards (UMTS) changes the communication protocols, emergence of new generation network technology (Eg. 2G,3G,LTE) etc. demand a wide range of new applications and network infrastructure. It also causes redundancy of related software, mobile-based applications, and value added services.

    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.
