Impact On Technology
How Technology Impacts Businesses
- What is the global impact that technology is making on the country?
Over the decade technology has transcended poverty, race and economics to become a driving force in the lives of people across the world. More than two billion of us now have access to the internet and five billion of us have mobile phones.
- What are some changes occurring in businesses that are a result of changing technology?
Organizational change occurs when a company makes a transition from its current state to some desired future state. Managing organizational change is the process of planning and implementing change in organizations in such a way as to minimize employee resistance and cost to the organization while simultaneously maximizing the effectiveness of the change effort.
- What are advantages to the newer technology?
Cutting-edge technology can create high benefits for businesses that are willing to be early adopters.
- When you evaluate the risks and advantages, do they outweigh each other?
At one point, cars, televisions, computers, and telephones were all "new technology". As were medications and other medical treatments (truly virtually everything we use was, at some point). But things that adversely affect us, like carcinogenic pesticides and cigarettes were too. You have to look at the technology itself, and evaluate the potential harms versus the potential benefits.
- Why is the global impact on technology changing the world?
The Weizmann Institute is making sure that the pace of technological advancement never falters.
- What are some of the changes that have happened in the past few years with regards to technology?
technology has been rapidly changing and expanding in every field imaginable. Smart phones are now capable of acting as standalone computer devices that can take pictures, search the Internet, send emails and text messages and yes, they even make phone calls. While it might seem that the technology of today has reached its limits, it is still actually spreading its proverbial wings. Only twenty or so years ago, personal computers were becoming small enough and affordable enough for families to buy them for home use. Since then, the world of technology has shown no signs of slowing down and practically every device available today is somehow tied to computer technology.
