About the book
Industrialised societies have changed enormously since World War II. Business enterprises have laid the foundation for this process as well as adapted to a world where industrialisation and internationalisation have spread rapidly. It is probably safe to say that without IT this expansion would not have been possible, and the air transport industry has played a substantial and significant role in this development.
IT and Business follows the development and the interplay between information technology and business during the second part of the twentieth century. SAS has been selected as the central theme of this publication because the company, being a deeply integrated part of this general development, has also been an outstanding representative of business life, and especially the revolutionary progress of IT towards globalisation and the Internet towards the turn of the millennium.
