telecommunication process much easier and faster. Since it connects a system with another system, Network is also a form of internet, we call it intranets. Internet was developed during 90s and that is the period since when information technology has been getting developed in a faster speed.Internet has been the facilitator for the performance and development as well as accuracy, growth and popularity of telecommunications, networking and information technologies so I think its worthy to say that because of internet, development of telecommunications, networks and other information technologies has taken the speed.How is the trend toward open systems, connectivity, and interoperability related to business use of internet, intranets and extranets?The information systems that use the common standards for hardware, software, applications and networking are known as open systems. Internet is an example of open systems, which creates a computing environment that is open to easy access by end users and their networked computers and other devices to easily access and communications with each other and share information. This is directly related to the business benefits and productivity due to broad interconnection and data and work sharing. Connectivity facilitates a computing system to shareits data and resources with other. Whereas interoperability is open system which enables many different applications of end users is accomplished using the different varieties of computer systems, software packages, and database provided by variety of interconnected networks.Internet, intranets and extranets are all the forms of open systems that have ensured the smooth functioning of business organizations making them more productive and efficient. Opensystems, connectivity and interoperability are the boarder forms which are proved to ensure thegrowth and profitability of business organizations.Refer to the real world Case on Metric & Multistandard Components Corp in the chapter. Pick a small business you would like to start. How would you handle the telecommunication needsof your company at the beginning? After your business had grown substantially a few years later? Explain the reason for your choices.54Embry Riddle Aeronautical University WW MGMT DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
MGMT 221 Database of Questions Suppose I would like to start a travel agency, to run a travel agency I would need very strong telecommunication system that would support the business and lead it towards growth. While deploying telecommunication in my business I would consider cost and efficiency at first. Time saving would be the secondary factor. Since I would be having limited budget and my business would be limited, I would search out something that best fits my need in minimum possible cost. I would also see the upgradability of the system so that as my business grows up, instead of replacing the whole system with new one I would be able to upgrade my system as well.After my business will grow substantially over years, and I would be having greater workload, I
