Use: “add low-cost suppliers from overseas” and “open up new locations closer to customers”(Latin America)
A) Good news—your business is expanding. Using the business and business strategy you chose in week 1, describe some ways your business could expand by working in new geographies to improve your overall business operations/performance.

Will you open up new locations closer to customers or suppliers? Will you offer new mobile apps in local languages for remote customers? Will you partner with world-class universities to design new high-tech products? Will you contract with local marketers in remote regions? What other ideas do you have to operate with customers and/or other businesses in new geographies? Explain your plans for geographical expansion consistent with your business strategy.
B) Based on your expansion plan, describe the type of information that would need to be shared between the existing operation and the new remote suppliers, customers, and/or partners. Consider whether the remote users would need to be connected to any of your existing systems: computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), supply chain management (SCM) systems, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and/or enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Please explain your reasoning.
C) Choose the technologies you will use to network with the new remote users: e.g., extranet, virtual private network (VPN), private wide area network (WAN), public internet, satellite, GPS, 4G or 5G cellular, Wi-Fi. Be specific and explain your answer.
