  3. 3. 11/5/2009<br />STALLION&apos;S<br />3<br />Fourth Change: Emergence of the Digital Firm<br /><ul><li>We talk about digital firms in this class. The book doesn’t provide a definition of “digital” and it should. Basically, digital firms use digital networks throughout their processes. Digital networks send digital information across them.
  4. 4. For purposes of understanding what it is to be a digital firm, please consider the definition on the following two slides.</li></li></ul><li>11/5/2009<br />STALLION&apos;S<br />4<br />Digital Defined:<br /> Digital describes electronic technology that generates, stores, and processes data in terms of two states: positive and non-positive. Positive is expressed or represented by the number 1 and non-positive by the number 0. Thus, data transmitted or stored with digital technology is expressed as a string of 0&apos;s and 1&apos;s. Each of these state digits is referred to as a bit (and a string of bits that a computer can address individually as a group is a byte). <br />
  5. 5. 11/5/2009<br />STALLION&apos;S<br />5<br />Digital definition continued:<br /><ul><li>Prior to digital technology, electronic transmission was limited to analog technology, which conveys data as electronic signals of varying frequency or amplitude that are added to carrier waves of a given frequency. Broadcast and phone transmission has conventionally used analog technology.
  6. 6. Digital technology is primarily used with new physical communications media, such as satellite and fiber optic transmission. A modem is used to convert the digital information in your computer to analog signals for your phone line and to convert analog phone signals to digital information for your computer. </li></li></ul><li>11/5/2009<br />STALLION&apos;S<br />6<br />Emergence of the Digital Firm<br /><ul><li>Digitally-enabled relationships with customers, suppliers, and employees
