Globalization is tied to technological innovation and distribution. The power of modern information and communication technologies (ICTs), including information systems (IS), digital platforms, social media, mobile phone apps, artificial intelligence (AI), and algorithms, has proven to be an instrument for modern organizations. ICTs have provided the infrastructure for multinational businesses and global collaborative teams, created new cultural connections irrespective of geographic boundaries and distances, allowed an increasingly mobile global population to connect with others; global online communities have emerged as the central elements of digital platforms allowing for exchanges of information, goods, or services. Businesses across all sectors have been updating their business models to reap benefits from the advances in ICTs, which allowed many to extend their reach into global and international markets, and thus also into different cultural contexts. This aspect of globalization and ICT usage have given rise to interdependence, mutual inclusion, and an integration process that has united all into one worldwide network and mixed the cultures of local and national into the global.
