Information technology as a driver of change for businesses

The rapid adoption of robots and artificial intelligence during the pandemic combined with a rebound in government investment is making some economists optimistic regarding a return of a 1990s economy with widespread benefits,

In a recent article Heather Long, economics correspondent of The Washington Times, cited that the United States is currently experiencing a surge in worker productivity that could rival that of the tech boom 20 years ago — if it lasts.

“As companies and customers embrace new technologies, making it easier for Americans to produce more with fewer workers, a growing number of economists say this is not a blip and could turn into a boom — or, at least, a “mini-boom” ― with wide-ranging benefits for years to come.

Higher productivity is the economy’s special sauce. Productivity refers to how much output a worker can do in an hour. When workers have better tools or the help of robots and artificial intelligence, they can make cars or process data much faster. Higher productivity typically leads to more goods and services available at a lower cost and increases in wages. Without it, economic growth is sluggish.”

You don’t have to go overseas to see similar trends and driving forces. In fact, you don’t have to go beyond Coraggio to see examples of how information technology is transforming business.
