Technology Supporting Business ProcessesOver the twentieth century, the ability to process information in terms of labor units has improved by a factor in the order of 1 to 5 trillion. This improvement represents a compounded growth rate of between 30 to 35 percent per year for a century. At the turn of the twentieth century, the mechanical calculator offered a modest productivity increase but the number of workers required to maintain the accounts of a medium-sized business still remained very high. Many tasks would take a large investment in equipment and a significant number of accountants weeks to process. A hundred years later, the same tasks can be completed by a standard desktop computer in minutes. The challenge for management has transitioned from a simple reduction in labor requirements to leveraging the increased processing power to develop competitive, efficient, and profitable organizations.With this example in mind, use the assigned readings for this module and respond to the following:Explain how information systems influence businesses to be more competitive, efficient, and profitable.Provide at least one example for each factor. Write your initial response in 300 words. Your response should be thorough and address all components of the discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation
How is Technology Changing the Face of Business Today?The traditional retail model has focused on finding high-margin, high-volume products or services because limited space means reduced space inventory. For example, organizations such as Walmart select the biggest hits from the broadest genres, called the short head. The short head means Walmart will only carry a select mix of country, pop, and rock that is calculated to provide the greatest cost/benefit. The business model of Amazon is different. Amazon provides the short head but also provides the long tail of more than 100,000 different audio selections. The competition for customers between the Walmart and Amazon marketplace is profoundly changing the face of retail business today.Using your company or a real-world example from your research, respond to the following:Describe how technology is changing the face of businesses today.Describe the most critical business processes that utilize information systems in your selected company.Explain how IT makes the companys business processes faster, cheaper, more accurate, and customer-savvy than that of competitors.Cite at least three sources found in your online library research.Give reasons and examples from your research to support your responses.Write 3 pages paper in Word format. Be sure to use and cite the module readings. Apply APA standards to citation of sources

Before going to the dealership, Jim and Laura decide that they can only afford $400.00 a month in car payments.Once at the car dealership, Jim and Laura meet Stan Salesman. Stan shows them several vehicles and Jim and Laura test-drive several of the cars. Jim and Laura particularly like the blue 4-door sedan. Therefore, they agree to give Stan Salesman a $100.00 deposit to hold the car for a day. Stan Salesman does not give them the receipt but guarantees that the $100.00 is refundable. No documents were signed.The next day, Stan Salesman calls Jim and Laura to ask them when they would like to take delivery of the car. Jim and Laura, on the way home from the dealership, decided that they were not going to buy the car because they did not want to spend that money each month. Therefore, Jim and Laura tell Stan salesman that they have decided not to buy the car and request their $100.00 deposit back.Stan insists that the $100.00 was a deposit on the car and was meant to be part of the contract to buy the car. Stan is very persistent and insistent that Jim and Laura have contracted to buy the car; therefore, the $100.00 will be applied to the purchase price of the car. Jim and Laura are shocked and angry as not only do they not want to spend the money, but now feel as though they are being duped by Stan Salesman.Jim and Laura have an appointment to see a lawyer in a few days, but know you are a student taking a business law class and come to you for advice.

After your presentation to the CEOs of UNMHS, one executive pulled you to the side with some concerns regarding UNMHS’s ability to serve the communities in which these organizations are located.October 19, 2017 / Leave a comment
After your presentation to the CEOs of UNMHS, one executive pulled you to the side with some concerns regarding UNMHS’s ability to serve the communities in which these organizations are located. Communities have their own rich cultures, which are themselves often made up of many distinct demographics. UNMHS will have to be very aware of the needs of these demographics in order to succeed in that community.
Based on your understanding of the two organizations you’ve analyzed as part of the central project for this course, use your initial post to explain ways a healthcare organization can overcome the challenges – of racial prejudice as well as social and economic inequity – when serving a distinct community with distinct needs. Use one of the communities of one of the organizations you chose as part of the final project for this course as an example.
