How can Internet technologies help a business form strategic alliances with its customers,suppliers, and others?
Information technology can help a business form strategic alliances with its customers, suppliers, andothers by enabling communications, collaboration, and information sharing in ways that were never before possible. By virtue of working together online, managers can monitor and automaticallycapture process metrics, identify bottlenecks, and recommend process improvements within and between organizations.

7. How could a business use Internet technologies to form a virtual company or become an agilecompetitor? http://www.scribd.com/doc/100987190/Chap-002

Virtual company:
Example: a person or company could use the Internet to acquire customers and then farm out the work to suppliers. A simple example of this can be found managing contractors. A company solicitscustomers for contract work (customers) and then solicits reliable contractors who can do this work (suppliers). In exchange for a share in the contractor's earnings, the virtual company handles the billing and customer relations. It manages its reputation by monitoring the quality of the contractor'swork. High performing contractors retain a larger percentage of their earnings, and low performingcontractors are not invited to work on future contracts. Some software vendors now lease (or providefor free) web enabled business software to manage accounting, customer relations management, andoffice automation tasks (word processing, spreadsheets, calendaring, and e-mail). As a result, a trulyvirtual company need only a computer connected to the Internet and a web browser. Visitrentacoder.comfor a reverse auction site version of this enterprise.

... the staff. Pale or gray tones often make a person feel down. For example soft yellows promote healing and blues have been known to help reduce blood pressure. Health care facilities are using more shades and tones of color because it creates a warm and inviting place and many people feel safer in this type of environment. Nevertheless, color schemes do often change and what may work for one group may not work for another area. Additionally more facilities are making use of natural light. The use of natural light not only saves the organization money, but also make a patient feel more at ease when combined with a healing garden. Noise is also a concern when designing plans for a rehabilitation center. However, in designing a new building you still have a budget to follow. Materials can often multitask and be used to suit a number of needs. For example, wall covering not only add to the design of a building, but it can help facilitate acoustical control as well. The use of carpet can also help to reduce noise levels. However carpet can only be used in certain areas of the facility. For example, a medical office suite such as a rehabilitation center can have carpeting in the waiting room, offices and in some exam rooms. Carpeting can also act as a buffer or cushion against fall injuries, but it is important to make sure to choose the appropriate carpet so that equipment and patients can move around with ease. Another option could be to install acoustic ceiling tiles or sound...

First Camping Trip

...When I was 6 years old I went camping for my first time with my mother and little sister. We never camp before. The scale of excitement and joy was higher for me and my sister. My grandmother told us she read books that describe camping experience, and what to look forward to. We could not wait to go camping to see everything nature had to afford. Camping sounded every nice to hear, and we were going to live out doors. We were going to the camping site at Paul M. Dimmick. I didn’t know how much food and drinks we needed to survive out in the woods, until I seen in the back of the truck. There were a little iceboxes filled with food, mini camping stove, lantern, gallon of water, tent, sleeping bag, bug spray, and booties to protect your feet’s. I feel like we were going on an adventure. There was a lot of stuff for our five days trip, I thought. The day was bright and beautiful. The truck tank was full and off we went. We had a lot of miles to go, we made two fast food stops, and three bathroom stops. My mother didn’t believe us when we told her we were starving, and I told her “If I didn’t eat I was going to die”. Soon after I ate that delicious burger, we had to make an emergency stop on the side of the road. I became sick and vomit everywhere. I shouldn’t have told my mother I was going to die from starving. “Are we there yet?” I ask my mother. No, but we got to the camping site afternoon. The action was just about to take place. We lay down sheets before setting the...

I would have to hunt with a bow. But we all know I couldn't. We stocked up on interesting books to get lost in and relaxing sleeping bags to take off the edge and nap. We packed up the Van were we were the only other things that can fit into it and we were off. A friend of the family recommended the campsite and also he going on his own camping trip with his family so we decided to follow him since he had the directions and also he was on his own camping trip with his family.

Camping with My Papa

...Camping with my papa The other night I was lying in by comfy bed, daydreaming about my new truck, when an odor jerked me back to reality. The sweet aroma of freshly squeezed orange juice. It reminded me of the vacations I took with my papa to Florida. I will never forget the fresh smell of the air when we stepped out of the van upon our arrival at the campsite. The crisp, salty smell of the ocean and the soft, powdery feel of the white sand between your toes took away all the weariness of the long, boring ride. The first thing I would do is change into my bathing suit and run out to the beach. My brother and I would spend the day splashing in the salty water, until we were too tired to keep our heads above the water. Then we would lie under the umbrella and let the cool breeze sweep over us as we drifted off to sleep for a much needed nap. When we awoke, it felt so good to have the bright sun blazing down on me. My favorite thing to do was build gigantic sand castles on the beach. My papa and I would have contests to see who could build the tallest sand castle. The grains of sand glistened in the sun like diamonds. Our campsite was always close to an orange grove that backed up to the RV park. I will never forget how the gigantic orange trees towered over me. Every day my papa would pick me an orange; they were so juicy! Every time I think about an orange, my mouth waters, and I think of how sweet they taste and how sweet my papa was. In the mornings we...

Camping Life

...Maverick Dixon Camping I am aware that in England camping is not very common. Camping in America is a common tradition and a love for many families. My family enjoys camping so much that we spend summers down at the campground sitting around a fire and making small talk. Camping is such a great experience and if my family could camp year long, they would. My family has a 29 foot trailer camper filled with dishes, televisions, a couch, beds, a shower, snacks, and other camping necessities. Usually when people think of camping, they think of a little tent in the middle of nowhere on the cold, hard ground held up by a few week poles, but that is not how it’s usually done. In America, we have beautiful campgrounds set up all around the country that you reserve certain spots for a chosen amount of weeks. When the camping date comes, you hook up your vehicle to the camper and haul it to your camping destination. What I love about camping is finally arriving to the campground and checking in at the front desk. You are always greeted with a warm southern welcome and are always told to enjoy your stay. You can hear the sincerity in the campground worker’s voice. There’s something about the camping community. Almost all campers across America are polite warm-welcoming. After check-in, families hop back into their vehicle and are off to their reserved camping site. When driving to the site you have reserved, more campers and friendly people will smile and give you a nice...

...My facility evaluation took me to visit The Don Hutson Center, which is the indoor practice facility of the Green Bay Packers. The Hutson Center is located across the street from the legendary Lambeau Field, it was constructed in 1994 at a cost an estimated $4.7 million. The space has since been renovated and some technological advancements have been made inside of the structure to help the overall functionality of the facility for the Green Bay Packers. Following are a list of questions that was asked/answered by Bryan Nehring who works in Facilities/Equipment for the Green Bay Packers and has been there for 20+ years. His experience with the practice facilities and seeing the current facility evolve to what it is now was a great resource. Who was Don Hutson? The center is named after Don Hutson, who played for the Packers from 1935 to 1945. Hutson is a member of both the Pro Football and Packers Hall of Fame. The Don Hutson Center is the largest element of the Packers' practice facility, which is broken into two other fields; Ray Nitschke Field and Clarke Hinkle Field. What is the Facility Design? There are two practice fields inside the Don Hutson Center, a 70-yard field runs East & West, with another 60-yard field running North & South. This setup is optimal because it allows the offense and defense to practice simultaneously without the issues of space, it’s something in which for any coach works out to their advantage.

Camping vs Hotels

...Camping in the deep woods versus staying in a hotel Amber Duncan University Composition and Communication one October 29 2011 Axia College of University of Phoenix Camping in the deep woods is better than staying in a hotel. Camping in the deep woods means to stay on state land not a campground. Camping in the deep woods has many trees, animals, bugs, and there is not any other people around. While camping there is no bathroom so you will have to find a tree. Compared to hotels, camping in the deep woods is more work, less expensive and more exciting. Camping is hard work but worth the time and effort that is put into camping. Setting up the tents is easy unless you receive a new one and do not know how to set it up right. Fire building is a skill needed when camping because in order to get light heat, or cook you need a fire. Fire wood is everywhere on state land or on the side of the road for sale. When staying in hotels all you need is cloths, swim suit and anything you want to bring to keep yourself occupied. When camping there is twice more equipment to be hauled around than staying in a hotel. Hotels have beds and are made for you and on the other hand, you have to make your tent, bed, and, set camp up. Hotels are less work but not usually worth the money. Camping is less expensive than staying hotels because there are no accessories while camping in the deep woods. Equipment needed for camping so when you get that equipment then you are set for...
