The Importance of Technology in Business

Technology is a broad term that encompasses many different aspects of our lives. From the smallest piece of equipment like a key fob to the largest device such as a smartphone, it can be found in almost everything we do. It can be used to entertain, provide information, communicate with others and even improve performance at work or school.

In a business environment, technology has redefined many operational processes as well as consumer behaviors. This has led to significant advantages for global businesses including increased profits, accelerated growth, the expansion of company models and even the creation of new products. Moreover, technology has also led to the development of new systems and services, which leads to an increase in national imports/exports as well as worldwide, globalized business opportunities.

Some employees may resist the use of technology in the workplace due to lack of understanding or concerns about the impact on their job. This can be a problem for a business, but it can often be overcome by conducting demonstrations or seminars to show how technology benefits business operations and increases productivity. In addition, it is important to show that technology is not taking jobs away from humans, but rather allowing them to take on more meaningful and rewarding tasks that require human creativity and foresight.

The word “technology” is derived from two Greek words: techne, which refers to the art of doing something and logos, which means a ‘word’ or an utterance that expresses inner thought. It was first used in English in the mid-1860s, when it entered the Oxford Dictionary under the title “technic.”
