What is the role of Internet technology in business?
If you go back decades to the past, then modern ways to alleviate the routine may seem like some kind of miracle, revived by Jules Verne fiction. What will happen if a resident, for example, in the 30s of the 20th century, demonstrates the modern capabilities of the Internet with its many payment platforms, remote learning, computer modeling?
To say that he will be shocked is to say nothing. Let us consider in more detail the role of such frequently encountered services in the electronic world for doing business (and not only), such as Internet banking (including electronic payments for services and goods), advertising on social networks and distance learning. It would seem that you can tell about these things? Not much has been written about them, but the topic has not been exhausted, the bottom is still not visible. In the world of electrons walking along wires, there are many, many interesting and informative things that can be useful to everyone. Internet banking and related services (payment of various bills, online stores, etc.) save people a lot of time.
Agree that it is much better to use an electronic wallet or an ATM to pay for, for example, utilities, than to stand in line, spend time, and sometimes nerves. Although, it is worth noting that modern means of queuing through the issuance of coupons quite effectively facilitate the task. Advertising on social networks has been a very effective tool for promoting goods and services for quite some time. Equally effectively, such a service can be used by both ordinary people and huge companies. Often this method of making a statement about itself for many people and organizations becomes the main one, and traditional PR methods in some areas of goods and services are slowly but surely losing ground.
What can be said about distance learning? At the moment, it is difficult to imagine that this type of training will be able to completely replace a full-fledged education in any specialty, but for the purpose of continuing education or obtaining specific, applied knowledge and skills, it is suitable, if not ideal, then very close to this. Modern video courses cover rather significant areas of applied knowledge. Most often, these peculiar knowledge bases are devoted to the Internet and everything that is connected directly or indirectly with it.
Agree that it would be great to learn, for example, to create beautiful sites (online stores, business cards sites, resume sites) that would attract attention, show your professional level. If you have your own business, then the functional and bright page of the online store will be an excellent tool for attracting customers and, as a result, increasing profits. If you are a professional in your field, a gold worker, then the presence of a resume site will complement your image of a successful person and will be an additional plus for employment. In the modern world without Internet technologies – nowhere, so study and be always on the crest of a wave!
