Conclusion

From the Paper:

"Interestingly, as the members discussed the technology used by their companies, they focus on those that they had specific knowledge about. The assumption can be made that they only discussed a small portion of the technology used. When asked about recommendations for improvements, the responses all relate directly to technologies that they interface with rather than discussing how a new use of technology within the business environment.
"The business climate is changing. As such, the use of information technology with the organizations either has changed or will be changing. The members acknowledge that some of the change will have a positive impact on course of their respected organizations."
