As far as the innovative technologies are concerned, these have greatly affected the mobility of an organization elements allowing roaming inside the office and mobility outside the office without losing valuable information. Wireless LANs allow mobility within the organization structure without fixing employees to a specific point. Cellular networks with third generation devices of course allow constant contact with the office from any side of the world with advanced services as Internet connection and visual contact between the parties as talking goes on. Wireless network enabled laptops, PDAs and notebooks exploit the satellite networks to permit contact with the office and the associates upon traveling or performing out of the office chores. Finally, a combination of the telecommunications and state-of-the-art technology equipment allow employees of multi-transnational organizations located in diverse geographical locations to come together and perform meeting in real time as if all participants were sitting in the same office exchanging ideas at the same time.
IT has greatly facilitated the exchange of information among business partners and transnational organizations. The former implies that organizations are also better exposed to information permitting the retrieval of knowledge in a much faster pace. A business partner therefore is not bound to an associate but can inform on business trends and choose a better associate that will enhance customer number, deliver services in a much faster pace or with a lower cost or deliver enhanced services.
