Reflective Journal: Technology
Technology is a wide term that refers to a real-world presentation of science and knowledge to moneymaking and managerial activities. After reading the article about technology, I have learned that change is a main feature of technology especially in commercial firms. In a commercial firm, use of technology has benefited businesses. Moreover, technology has led to innovations that have resulted in the growth of commercial industries.
The government has played a crucial role in stimulating the progression of technology in commercial industries. The government has launched the internet that is now widely used in organizations. On the hand, I have learned that private sectors have also contributed to the growth of technology. The private sector provides finance for companies that are not funded by the public enterprises. The combined effort of both public and private sector have greatly advanced innovations (Khosrow-Pour & Mehdi, 2008).
According toAvril and Zumello (2013), the Internet is a global network that link people in different places in the world. I have realized that people buy and sell their products online via the internet. I have learned from Nielsen Global Online Survey that many people shop online. E-business has led to an increase in total revenues of Commercials. We can conduct business activities via cell and mobile phones. However, M-business have some shortcomings that include undesirable and unwelcome text messages and instances of spyware. There is an extensive use of social networking in commerce. People are sharing ideas through Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Commercial business use bloggers to promote their products.
Technology has positively contributed to commerce. However, technology is also faced by several threats. Khosrow-Pour and Mehdi (2008) argues that some of the threats include: spam and solicited commercial E-mails, phishing, pharming, and internet censorship.
Use of technology has several social benefits to people. Some of the benefits I have noted are through the enhancement of social lives through technology and education. Poor and remote communities can access digital libraries. Moreover, technology has been to play a pivotal role regarding medical information. The internet has become the primary source of health information.
Technology has revolutionized the activities in the whole world turning it into a global village. Technology has had an impact on every aspect of life. I have noted that there is a gap between those who have the technology and those who still use traditional methods. In developed countries such as U.S.A, this gap has reduced.
