Relate how ICT affects global social transformation

Through the completion of the research paper for Media 701 ICT in Organizations, I was able to relate how ICT has affected and transformed society. My focus was on E-commerce and it’s effect on the way society shops today.

Information and Communication Technologies have influenced the way we interact with the
world today. E‐commerce is the part of ICT that deals with selling and purchasing of
products and services over the Internet. This is the main focus of this document, to try to
understand how companies and shoppers have had to adjust to this new technological era.
By discussing the social, economical, political, and global impacts that e‐commerce has
brought, we will be able to better understand its influences and how to successfully adapt
to it.

My recommendation for future users of this technology and the new forms of e-commerce that
are coming, is to have a good understanding of what your are doing before you jump in to it.
There is currently enough information available to make smart and safe decisions. Now that we
have access to new markets, we have more options and more risk.

Analyze the philosophy and principles underlying the organization and operation of ICT enterprise.

Through the completion of this project, I studied the use of cellphones in education and I learned the positive and negative sides of its uses. During the research I also learned the many different uses that cellphones have. Cellphones have become a vital part of our daily lives and give us intant access to communicate with others through many different chanels (text, phone call, email, sms, video, etc). Cell phones also allow us to access all sorts of information like maps and directions, websites, and apps.

Cellphones will become an all in one tool, kind of like the pocket swiss knife. Cellphones will probably replace our wallets as all of our personal information is being recorded inside our phones. We will even be able to make payments at the grocery store with our cellphones. "It’ll be impossible to live any kind of mainstream life without a mobile. Banking, payments, shopping, access to your house and car – all will be via your virtual mobile" (Russell, 2009). With all the current applications and the advances in technology, cell phones will probably replace laptops, notebooks, books,etc.

This has created a whole new market with different opportunities for businesses.
