I prefer the word mission because it implies motion and carries a greater sense of urgency. Finally, generic pharmaceutical companies manufacture drugs that are no longer protected by patents. Contrary to popular belief, these jobs have not moved overseas. Later developments such as the personal computer, have brought computing power even closer to the individual in the organisation. These trends suggest the two central questions which comprise the productivity paradox: 1) Why would companies invest so heavily in information technology if it didn't add to productivity? 2) If information technology does contribute to productivity, why is its contribution so difficult to measure?

For example, although most communications standards are developed in the private sector, government is an essential partner. Schlumberger and Baker-Hughes, two major oilfield services companies, have significant digital oilfield practices. Of course, there is often considerable mistrust in standards negotiation, and for good reason. These regulations effectively cripple the emerging FM market and Armstrong appeals.

Smart technology has helped Misfit make a lot of things possible. Instead they cause an input mix change, in this case substituting computers for other inputs, and output growth.

Crowston, Kevin and Malone, Thomas W. [1988], "Information Technology and Work Organization," Chapter 49 in: M. Paul Roehrig, a senior BPO specialist at the company, says the integration of business process work and technology has “profoundly changed the business process service value for clients”. “New business process services are emerging that integrate human process work with collaboration and automation via technology enablers and automation platforms,” he says. “We’re also seeing next-generation technologies such as cloud, social tools, and analytics much more effectively applied to delivering business process services.” Roehrig says that 10 years ago, many businesses were trying to outsource non-core processes primarily to cut costs, but although lower unit cost is still critical, they now want more. “Companies everywhere are grappling with the challenges and opportunities presented by the mega-trends of continued globalisation, new technologies such as emerging social/mobile collaboration, and a new mindset for problem solving and dynamic process work,” he says. “These themes are shaping a new kind of business process service, and there is growing evidence of a major market shift as next-generation business process services and solutions offer ways to modernise activities that underlie complex dynamic knowledge work.” Businesses intend to modernise processes in response to a continued economic downturn, says Roehrig. “Process virtualisation and externalisation is truly transforming how enterprise work will be conducted over the coming years.” Another transformational trend in business today is the importance of data and the technology that enables businesses to use the data they have.
