As organizations prepare to compete globally in the new millennium, the effective deployment and exploitation of IT will create the difference between those that are successful and those that are not. What lessons are there to be learned from organizations that run global IT operations and deploy IT in support of their global business operations? What lessons are there to be learned in the development, implementation, use and management of IT from organizations operating in countries other than their own? Cases on Global IT Applications and Management: Successes and Pitfalls brings together original cases that report on these aspects of global IT applications and management and benefits educators, researchers and practitioners alike.
