Introductory Remarks

Purpose and Scope

The purpose of this report is to learn about the different types of business technology and to also learn about how they contribute to the business world. This report will explain various types of technology and will also tell how they are used.

One of the most common technologies that have helped the business world is cellular phones. A lot of business people are constantly on the move, so without a cell phone, there is no way that they would be able to communicate with anyone. Another type of business technology used on today's business world is email. I know at my place of business, we rely on our interoffice email system. If there are any daily postings that everyone in the office needs to know about, it will be in an email. Also another thing that we use our email system for is to tell if someone will be out of the office, and if so, if and when they will be back. I think everyone will agree that without computers, the business world would be pretty much nothing. At almost every place of employment, ranging from pizza places to department stores use computers. Without them, most companies couldn't survive. These are just some of the types of technology that will be discussed.

Sources and Methods

Some of my secondary sources will be the internet, periodicals, my Business Communication text, and also a management text.

Technology has advanced tremendously within the last 15 years. In today's society our technology is more advanced than ever before. There are many different types of technology that have contributed to the success of the business world.

How Technology Contributes To the Business World

The first type of technology that will be discussed is electric mail. Electric mail, or more commonly known as email, is a natural use of networked communication technology that developed right along with the evolution of the internet. In today's business world email has become the standard way for employees to communicate with their fellow coworkers and employers. Email is used in nearly every industry. According to a survey I gave to 20 Macomb Community College students, more then half, 65 percent use an interoffice email system daily at their place of employment.
