When the new technology was introduced, people were skeptical of its functions: (bad stuff)
However this decade marks the age of intranets and social media where people are no longer concerned about the deskilling of workers and the bad effects of new technology, people are now savvier, comfortable at ease in using technology, as the technology acceptance model (TAM) prescribes, perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use defines the users’ belief that using a particular system enhances performance.

Information Technology Acts
Throughout the years, technology has advanced at an ever increasing rate. Advances in information technology in particular, have made information that years ago, would have taken weeks or even months to gather, available at the push of a button. With information so readily available to anyone and everyone, new ethical issues arose that resulted in the need for regulations to be placed on how that information can be used.
Acts such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), 1991 and the Do Not Call Implementation Act, 2003 were created to stem the tidal wave of

Minimizing Occurrences and Effects of Information Technology Failure
Even though implementation can be successful with negative elements, with the best-laid plan for implementation, there are warning signs that go unnoticed. There must be 100 % buy-in from management, and lack of candor can be a strong proponent of intolerance to change. In the quickly changing face of health care information technology (IT), implementation has become a very familiar subject. The desire for higher patient satisfaction ratings, and increased revenue, makes change management a topic for training and certification of its' own.

Reaction Paper on the article “IT doesn’t matter” by Nick Carr
A set of related arguments that Carr makes is that scarcity, uniqueness, and proprietary technologies bring about strategic advantage and lock-in the vendor. He also stated that as information technology’s power and ubiquity has grown, its strategic importance has diminished. Finally, he argued that information technology (IT) can no longer be used to gain a strategic competitive advantage.
The second set of arguments that Carr makes is that information technology has become a non-proprietary commodity, invisible, and has therefore become an infrastructure technology. Because of this he argues that the window for gaining
