Describe a business that you would like to start. Discuss how you would use global outsourcing to accomplish your goals. I recently moved and I noticed that packing and unpacking and carrying the boxes is hassle. A business I would like to begin is a moving business. Which at first I would be the driver and hire some people to do the heavy stuff. This is a local business, but I can do global outsourcing, by hiring somebody from China or India to create a website and a personalized email service.
As well, to get business I would have to market the business to create customers. I could as well order business cards or business pamphlets from China as well. And finally the last area that I could outsource is telemarketing, by my outsourced employees calling or chatting in the local webs. With the internet I could have people calling from outside the country to my neighbors that might need moving help. 2) Your University wants to recruit high-quality high school students from your state.
Provide examples of (a) the data that your recruiters would gather in this process, (b) the information that your recruiters would process from these data, and (c) the types of knowledge that your recruiters would infer from this information. The data these recruiters would gather are numbers and characters from the schools database. (a) An example of this data is that these numbers can be from through the grading system but as well the recruiters might be interested in athletes, and this data can be found from sports stats websites.
Executive Summary mySupermarket is a grocery shopping and comparison website which aims to provide customers with the best price for their shopping.

This data will mean more when it is organized into information by having the student’s name, and the numbers from the data might become the student’s Grade Point Average. Also the data can be the number of rush touchdowns, or even the free-throw percentage. With information the recruiters can find out the students names, but as well the difference between the GPA or FTP or Rush touchdowns. (c) And overall this data that turns into information, and recruiters turn in to ‘knowledge’ can be a type of knowledge to pick out students by their GPA or if the students are also sports stars.
This knowledge helps the recruiters find and choose exactly what type of student they want. 3) Can the terms data, information, and knowledge have different meanings for different people? Support your answer with examples. Yes, they can have different meanings for different people. For example, a person or a computer might be creating data, which they have no idea what it is, only numbers and characters. But, let’s say an upper supervisor reviews these data and has more depth information for it. The numbers the supervisor is looking at is the total revenue the company made in the past year.
This supervisor has this information but does not have the “knowledge” an accountant would have by viewing all of this together. Overall, they have different meanings when it is put all together and if you are in a specific field in a company. 4) information technology makes it possible to “never be out of touch. ” Discuss the pros and cons of always being available to your employers and clients (regardless of where you are or what you are doing).
The pros of Information Technology are that you are never out of touch.
An example is that there are a lot of workers working part-time jobs, and many are not getting sufficient hours to support a family. What Information Technology can do this help contact people whenever the store or business is in need of workers because some called off. This connected can help reach people through their phones, or even through emails and social networks. As well many people have smart phones that have bad batteries and are able to be reached because they are connected through a computer. The cons of Information Technology are that it is hard to get away from the world.
The impact of classroom technology on student behavior Angeline M. Lavin University of South Dakota Leon Korte University of South Dakota Thomas L. Davies University of South Dakota ABSTRACT The trend toward technology enhanced classrooms has escalated quickly during the past five years as students have become increasingly tech-savvy. Classrooms across the nation have become “wired” and textbook ...
For example when a store manager is on vacation, they might have a social network account, email, or might want to surf the web. But these needs that people have of needing technology are a gateway to be contacted, and overall one cannot enjoy their vacation because of the usual stress of reading or connecting to the web. Also high value customers only want to talk to managers, and therefore the managers will always be available to customers where ever they are. 5) Robots have the positive impact of being able to relieve humans from working in dangerous conditions.
What are some negative impacts of robot in the workplace? Some negative impacts that robots have is that they are destroying jobs even though they are protecting humans from working in dangerous places. For example, the American economy has been evolving into a service economy, meaning that many jobs in America are service jobs. But there are still some jobs that are dangerous and robots might take over. The problem with this is not about safety but that many people that work in these areas of work, have nowhere else to go, because the skills they are proficient with are useless, now that robots have taken over.
Chapter 1: Closing Case #1 1) Describe how information technology enabled the Jasmine and Egyptian Revolutions. Information Technology was able to initiate Jasmine and Egyptian Revolutions by the younger educated generations knowing more about the social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and text messages. These Revolutions did not need prominent leaders to rally because, even though these Arab countries are not as modernized as the US, they were still interconnected and able to act through Information Technology.
They were able to prove the constant harassment the people took from officials in these countries. As well, we can see the term homo conexus being used because the young public was able to start just by knowing more about the basic internet, like posting videos and exchanging news, than the Tunisian Government. 2) Describe efforts by the Tunisian and Egyptian governments to quell the revolutions. In particular, describe the efforts that were directed at information technology.
... that will prevent significant competition in price, service, or innovation.Access and Control Some governments that see information technology as critical to their economic development ... the traditional strategy of monopoly carriers in many developing countries that use high international rates to cross-subsidize domestic rates and generate income ...
The Tunisian and Egyptian governments tried to use the usual propaganda of frightening the people, but with the young Tunisians and Egyptians, being educated, multilingual, and wireless, they were able to evade the propaganda. With the governments noticing that the young public was always connected and able to avoid the propaganda, they even took a dramatic choice of turning off the four primary Internet providers. The government thought that they were going to be able to cease the protests and the public would quiet down.
But in return, they announced “When countries block, we evolve. With the government taking action against the most modern information technology, the public was still able to keep connected, by using the beginnings of technology, like landline telephones, fax machines, and ham radios. 3) Discuss how information technology contributed to higher oil prices and higher prices you pay for gasoline. Information Technology has contributed to higher oil prices and higher prices we pay for gasoline, because with these modern tools, countries are able to stay connected with the world and are able to agree and set prices that everybody likes.
As well, when there are problems/protests in countries that are the main supplier’s of oil, they must ration. Basic economics equation, less supply more demand increases the price. As well these countries overcharge first world countries, because they have seen data or information in the internet, for example, “U. S. diplomats had cataloged the highest levels of Tunisian governments. This makes these countries hostile toward countries like the U. S. And this leads the country gasoline vendors to raise their prices and charge us higher prices.
