CIS 336 Enterprise Architecture Week 4 - Assignment 2 - Telecommuting and the Mobile Worker
Telecommuting and the Mobile Worker
Telecommuting is combining telecommunications with commuting. This term usually means individuals who regularly work from home instead of commuting into an office. It is often used to mean anyone who works regularly from a location outside their company’s office (Pearlson, K. & Saunders, C., 2013, pg. 385).
Telecommuting can impact many different things. The impact that telecommuting has on energy conservation is that it could possibly cut fuel cost and consumption. It could potentially reduce Gulf oil imports by 24% to 48%, greenhouse gases by up to 67 million metric tons a year, and save 7.5 trillion gallons of gasoline each year
