operations management ( discussion)

I need an explanation for this Business question to help me study.

Discussion C: Data, the Encyclopedia, and Supply Chain

Welcome to the third discussion. In this course you will be introduced to a topic in the discussion. The first week of the module you will write about your initial thoughts after reviewing the resources. The initial post should be at least 300 words.

During the following week you will reply to at least two of your classmates. The replies should be at least 100 words. See the discussion rubric for more details on grading.

Discussions should always be completed prior to “class.” If you are in an online class or an on ground course this is prior to the lesson portion of the week. Are you ready to begin?

                    1. Watch Ted Talk: How Data Will Transform Business
                    2. Review the website about data.

Initial Post (300-word post)

It is suggested that Wikipedia has replaced the hardback encyclopedia books, such as Encyclopedia Brittanica. What other ways do you foresee technology changing businesses that have been around for hundreds of years? Explain. Give an example.
