Today we can do just about everything with the help of the internet- view and control bank accounts, peruse and shop from stores around the world, connect with new people or video chat with distant friends and family, even control smart objects like kitchen appliances from afar. The same effect can be observed in business, with more and more day-to-day operations becoming automated or conducted online.
