It is evident this time that in any form, technology is being utilized. Technology is a general term for the processes by which human beings fashion tools and machines to increase their control and understanding of the material environment (Meritt, 2006). The modern world of high technology could not have come about except for the development of the computer. Different types and sizes of computers find uses throughout society in the storage and handling of data, from secret governmental files to banking transactions to private household accounts. Computers have opened up a new era in manufacturing through the techniques of automation, and they have enhanced modern communication systems. They are essential tools in almost every field of research and applied technology, from constructing models of the universe to producing tomorrow’s weather reports, and their use has in itself opened up new areas of conjecture. Database services and computer networks make available a great variety of information sources. The same advanced techniques also make possible invasions of personal and business privacy (Meritt, 2005). Recent developments in information technology have transformed the way organizations conduct business. Today, companies are reducing costs using real-tine electronic communications, improving customer intimacy by leveraging the internet, and taking advantage of new business model such as distributed auctions and trading hubs.
