In the current world of technology, a business might not claim to be safe if at all it has not incorporated technology in its undertakings. The reason is that other businesses, whether small or large have all been involved with the aspect of integrating technology in all their proceedings. Therefore, it becomes important for all the businesses to integrate technology in the operations as technology has been viewed as the major undertaking that is making businesses become effective and also get highly competitive. The reason is that in the presence of technology, a person might access essential information that could otherwise be missing if at all the technology had not been integrated. It is also important to realize that the businesses get lots of benefits after integrating technology in that the business as well as its businesses will be exposed to the outer world for all the people to view and purchase from such a business. As a result, technology has become vital and a necessity for businesses as opposed to the previous moments when technologies in the businesses were viewed as being an option. If a business integrates technology, then it will be at a point of growing fast even within a short duration.
A reflective essay
Engaging in the classroom activities and lessons was an important activity that aided in the acquisition of essential information about the small businesses and how might be run and managed. Specifically, the class activities aided in gaining information that the current world of business is becoming highly competitive especially due to the advances in technology whereby all the firms both small and large are integrating technology that aids in their operations. Therefore, I realized that technology is an aspect that would have significant importance and due to the case, it becomes important to integrate technology in the business to enhance its operation. Specifically, a small business is an activity that has emerged and requires heavy integration of technology so that it might develop even within the shortest time possible. By incorporating technology, the business obtains lots of secureness and might not be faced with certain problems that might be associated with the failure of integrating technology. The classroom activities also revealed that various businesses have applied and relied heavily on technology and due to the practice, they managed to grow even within the shortest time possible. The other important thing that was learned is that various firms and institutions were mentioned that could offer valuable information about how they went in integrating technology and this became an important starting point to examine the topic of integrating technology especially, in small businesses.
