Unit 1 db: information system‘s competitive advantage for

As we have studied in this unit, in some cases an organization’s information system (IS) is planned and centered on specific goals; in other cases, technology is an afterthought to the actual business objectives.  Can you think of examples of how technology has altered the way we do business today?  Were those changes and implementations accomplished by understanding the goals of the business? (If this does not apply to your current position, try to respond based on your understanding of the material read).

In response to your peers, provide an example of an IS component that helped to develop the company’s strategic information system (SIS) as well as creating an advantage in business.
