Review and Discussion

From the Paper:

"The increasingly dynamic and fast-paced advancement of information technology is rapidly changing the business world. In this environment, identifying organizational and technical issues of significance in the international or global management of information systems has assumed new importance and relevance for businesses of all types and sizes. Indeed, small- to medium-sized enterprises today can compete all virtually equal footing with their larger counterparts as they expand their operations worldwide thanks to the Internet and computer-based applications. Nevertheless, there are some profound challenges involved in keeping pace with the rate of change and in integrating legacy computer systems with more sophisticated applications as they are introduced."
