Tourism is travel for pleasure or business; also, the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours.
Tourism may be international, or within the traveler’s country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go “beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only”, as people “traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes”.
Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country’s balance of payments. Today, tourism is a major source of income for many countries, and affects the economy of both the source and host countries, in some cases being of vital importance.

Most companies do a great job of promoting efficiency within their own walls, streamlining internal processes wherever possible, but have less success coordinating cross-company business interactions. When data passes through traditional borders, various inconsistencies, errors, and redundancies arise, leading to wasted work. The cost of such inefficiencies is very real and large.
A transparent enterprise is one that eliminates traditional corporate boundaries by streamlining cross-company processes, providing a platform for reducing costs, enhancing quality, and speeding up operations. Cross-company transparency can help your organization adopt a transformational approach to business, by working closely with partners to design and manage seamless processes and information flow.
