Some new trend about the function of digital technologies
Have you ever heard the remote support application software?It is a new trend of control the computer distantly.It is because you can use the home’s computer connecting to the company’s work computer,so you can complete most of the works in your home.Small Office Home Office is one of the distance work.The definition in investopedia ‘A business that is operated out of a business owner’s residence and can be located in an established office within the residence.’Also,Distance Work become a trend in this society.A research in CT GoodJobs,93% of workers use the Whatsapp once in day；63.3%will use Skype and 61.7% will use Facebook Messenger.

Distance Work is a useful method to complete the work quickly.It is because the employee can reduce the time to commute.They just work in home anytime they like.For sure,the employee must be self-discipline.If they facing some technologies difficulties,they can ask for help from the companies’ technical staffs.Just like using the remote support software to solve the problem distantly.
∝Electronic Commerce(Online shop)
The stereotype of electronic commerce in Techtarget,electronic commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over an electronic network, primarily the Internet.Buying products on online shop is being common in recent years.For example−Taobao,QQ Online Shop,Yahoo Auction.Those online shop encourage B2B B2C and C2C (B=Business,2=to,C=Customers) services.Customers can use the electronic fund translate system to pay the money through credit card or point card,even the octopus.
The most popular of online shop is Taobao which is organized by Jack Ma.In Taobao,we can pay the money through Taobao personal application software–Alipay.Taobao also develop a new application software which is used in phones.The software require Near field communication(NFC).NFC is the set of protocols that enable electronic devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching the devices together.So,the phone can validate the octopus and pay the products’ prices.Because of the digital technologies,companies and users can stage their own websites and online shops.They can posts the products’ details,contacts’ methods freely.
