Factors Needed to Run a Company Successfully

What factors are important when it comes to running a company successfully?  There are a number of things which have to be taken in to account - otherwise the company could fail.

Finance:
Staff Salary - Regular payments from an employer to an employee

Company Profit - Profit is the difference between the income of the company and all its costs/expenses. This is usually measured over a period of time - normally a year.


Company Turnover – Is the total running costs of that company for that year including sales.

Buy Software/Computer Stock – Purchasing software and computer is very important as it must work properly and be exactly what the company needs to run and make a profit.

Management:
Employability – Management of employees is very important as it vital to make sure you employ responsible workers to represent the company. Plus you have to manage your staff well in order to keep them happy and productive.

Customer Service – Good management of customers with problems is required so that customers are happy with the way the organisation is run. In this way they will come back in the future and spend more money.

Advertisement of company – It is the management's responsibility to maintain the company's status and profile in the marketplace by making sure posters, leaflets and all types of advertising documents about the company are disseminated. Despite the fact it is the management’s responsibility to ensure good advertisement of the company, the job of advertisement is usually given to the employees in the marketing department with ultimate responsibility lying with the head of that department.

Company Database – Databases are needed for companies, for example, to keep their employee’s details for many reasons including for emergencies.  There are also many other reasons for running a fully integrated database system.

Company Finances – A database(or spreadsheet) is very important and is required so that the company can review and keep note of their finances. Company turnover and profit is usually discovered using the computer database. It can also be used to forecast things such as future profits.

Data Integrity

Data integrity is when the information you enter into a database correctly matches up with the facts. Data integrity is vital when creating a database as if the information is not correct in a database, it can mislead companies and organisations.

Below is a video explaining how data integrity works.

Acquiring IT Skills

There are many ways in which a business can gain IT skills, each with advantages and disadvantages. The most suitable method for your business will depend on factors such as the size of your business, what skills you are trying to acquire and the time available for employees to become proficient.

You can hire new employees with the necessary IT skills. This avoids the need to train people on joining the business, but:
  • You need to specify exactly what skills are needed
  • You need some method of assessing candidates' IT skills when you consider them for employment
  • The skills acquired may become outdated quite quickly and you will have to undertake retraining at some stage
  • You cannot assume that young recruits will have been taught IT skills at school - many will, but possibly not to the standard that you require.

Why Projects Fail

In a perfect world every project would be on time but reality tells a very different story, it’s not uncommon for project to fail even if the budget and schedule are met. But there are certain reasons that would happen and would unable to make the projects unsuccessful.

I have a good example about failed project in India. In September 2010, India hosted the commonwealth Games which completely failed. The games federation gets 6 years to prepare the entire infrastructure before the kick-off and apparently they did nothing for the first three years, three year is not enough to completed the whole project but did cover up to satisfy the whole world and this caused a lot of chaos including loss of life  a weeks before game scheduled.

India had spent 1.2 billion pounds for hosting the 19th Commonwealth but the project failed because they lack of competence or urgency to complete a project on time, the project wasn’t planning properly, no quality control, mismanagement of progress, lack of planning and bad communication between relevant parties.

Unrealistic expectations
This is when something you don’t expect comes up during an ongoing project and it may cause a project failure.  Unrealistic expectations can be a breakdown of communication between relevant parties. Time frame and cost may be another example, when you intend to carry out a project for two months and in the middle of ongoing project you had a breakdown of system which may cause time to fixed and unexpected cost to re-fixed the whole system, this will definitely slow down the project and may also cause failure.

Poor initial project design
If proper investigation were not carried out before planning project, it may absolutely leads to project failure. Project needs a proper investigation before start by implement (The project life cycle) system; this may be gathering information, produce project plan, gain permission and design a solution.

Additional unforeseen development
One cannot predict that when emergency can arise. It is totally unpredictable because unforeseen problem can arise at any point of time during project. A major problem such as a family emergency, traffic jam, unfriendly weather, it may cause seriously impact or halt your schedule altogether and may also lead to project failure.

Other reasons
Natural disaster can be a big influence to cause a project failure; this is an emergency situation posing significant danger to life and property that results from a natural causes like , flood, tornado, hurricane, volcanic eruption, earthquake, or landslide. In this kind of a situation is very unusual to prevent natural disasters and when this happened during ongoing project, it will definitely affect the whole thing and may cause a huge failure.


Oh NO...!!! My Laptop Got Wet... What Do I Do???

Do you know what to do when your Laptop gets wet? No? So here I’ll give you some tips that may help your laptop when such an accident occurs. Unfortunately people very often spill many different kinds of drinks on their laptops/notebooks and to begin with they panic not knowing what they should do. 

In case that ever happens to you (I hope it won’t) but being pessimistic let’s say it is happening now, let us go through what to do. For example you can imagine yourself typing some very important document and after hours sitting on your chair you decide to stretch up and while stretching up you swing your arm across and hit the glass of water standing on your desk, which spills on your laptop. What do you do? I will suggest that when this happens you stay calm and follow these steps:

  1. Very quickly remove all power supplies including the battery.
  2. Dry all visible parts. 
  3. Remove and dry all internal and external hard drives. 
  4. Remove and dry all CD’s, floppy disks and accessories. 
  5. Flip your laptop upside down (kind of A-frame with the laptop) and leave it in this position for at least 24 hours.
There are obviously a few ways you could try to repair your laptop on your own, but I won’t write about how to do right here it due to the risk that you can very easily damage your laptop. 

I suggest that now you take the laptop to an authorised service company and get it checked and repaired. This may cost you some money if you don’t have any insurance cover for it, but you will have complete peace of mind and your laptop will be in good hands.


Please note:
The steps provided above are only suggestions. I’m not taking any responsibility for the damage caused.  
      Everything you do, you do at your own risk.

New Revolutionary laptop without a keyboard



The laptop with the keyboard is gonna be a thing in the past. The latest keyboard less laptop is here. Above video shows the future of laptop. Its compact,is to carry and stylish.

Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest release of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs, and media centre PCs.  Windows 7 was released to manufacturing on July 22, 2009, and reached general retail availability on October 22, 2009, less than three years after the release of its predecessor, Windows Vista.

               

Security Risks

Every company system is at risk if we don’t identify and implement security risks. Here is a list of risks and how we can help prevent them

THEFT – Theft is a common part of the risks in this day and age. There are many ways theft can happen - it could be from someone trying to steal a mouse or keyboard or it could be someone trying to steal data from the PC. There are ways we can prevent this from happening. We can install CCTV and pad locks on the computers and to keep data safe we can set up user names and passwords.

BACK UPS – Back ups are vital to computer data to save information being lost or data being corrupted.

 Now, imagine losing all your files - everything from business files, to family photos, to your tax returns – permanently and having no way to retrieve them. If we would have created a back up of the whole system then we could restore the files and data.

Computers are prone to crash and backing up data is the way to keep all our data safe

VIRUS – In today’s world viruses have become ever more common. We can receive them from downloading programs or even an infected USB device added to the computer.

The only way to protect us from them is to install an ANTI-VIRUS program such as Mcafee or Norton anti-virus.

These are both programs that you will have to pay for but there are some very good FREE versions of anti-virus we can install. AVG FREE is among the most common.


EMAILS & SPAM – With the increasing amount of people using email in the business world today it is important to have a FIREWALL installed. This will help protect us from spam that is sent through email on a daily basis. Spam is junk emails that are generated by a computer and spread out to as many people as possible. A firewall is a way of filtering spam and stop us getting bombarded with junk email.

Bits and Bytes

We all know that there are bits and bytes in computing.  However, what are these units of measurement – and how do they make the computer work?

Data is stored in memory as a number of 0s and 1s. Each of these is called a bit (Binary digit), so for example the number 0110 is a 4 bit binary number. 8 bits is called one byte.

This is the unit of memory that is used to store one character. A byte can store eight 0’s or 1’s in 256 different combinations.

Letters are stored as binary numbers using the ASCII code. ASCII means American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Most computers use this code so that they can communicate with each other.

Each ASCII character takes up one byte. For example 01100001 represent the letter `a`. In order to store the word `computer`, you would need 8 bytes of storage. One kilobyte or KB is =1,000 bytes, one Megabyte or MB is= 1000,000 bytes and one Gigabyte or GB is= 1,000,000,000bytes.

Remember – Since computers can only store binary numbers, all computer data has to be in this digital format. Images, sounds and video - all have to be digitized before they can be processed by a computer.

How to Overclock your Computer



Overclocking is the process of increasing the clock frequency of your computer parts. You can pretty much overclock every single part of your computer CPU, Graphical Processing Unit, Ram and so on.
Basically it will make your computer run faster without having to spend the money on upgrades.

How about clean up?




Are you fed up of your computer going slowly? Yes? So here is solution that can make your computer go faster. Usually when you think of speeding up your PC you think of upgrading your hardware or maintaining your operating system.

However you can easily give your PC a boost of speed by just cleaning it up inside. Have you ever opened up your PC case and looked inside? No? Then there is definitely a lot of dust on your vents, fans and components. This ruins your PC’s ability to keep itself cool and your computer then works at a high temperature which makes it go slow.

You can clean up your PC using a vacuum, soft brush (the one like you use for painting) or even make up ones are ideal too.  Go for the best quality you can afford (because the economy ones often shed hairs.) You may need some soft general cleaning cloths to clean your cables and exterior. When cleaning up inside the PC case be very careful not to damage any components, and before you start remember to switch the power supply off and unplug power cable for your own safety.

Windows – Its Own Worst Enemy?

 

Most views on a website called Techradar are saying that Windows Vista has ruined the performance of Windows XP.

I think they just might be right because I remember my first time using win XP in 2005; it was really fast and easy to use until I got Vista, but what I realised was that Vista is always updating itself almost every day and XP updates itself once in a while which could mean that XP has less problems than Vista.

One other thing I witnessed about Vista is that it even though it had nice themes and backgrounds it was not that different from XP; when it comes to multimedia vista can be better than XP but where XP beats vista is it’s speed of processing data throughout the system unit.       

Here is a video about the above information. If you wish to comment on this then please do so below.

What do you think about LG trying to ban PS3 in Europe?

 

I think that a lot of people in Europe will oppose to this decision because most gamers have been playing their PS3 for some years now and there is no way that LG could just tell/command them to stop playing their PS3 just because LG said so.

The reason why LG is trying to ban Sony PS3 from Europe is because Sony has a Blue-ray player embedded in its system whiles LG has also invented their own Blue-ray player that looks like a DVD-player. So basically LG wants to stop PS3 from making any more of that particular feature in the PS3 console.

What is your opinion about this? Take a look at the video and let us know in the comment section below!

The Advantages of Database Reports


If forms are for input, then reports are for output. Anything you plan to be printed on standard sized paper. This could be something as simple as a list of names and telephone numbers taken from a single table and sorted alphabetically to a sales invoice based on a query, with the product details taken from one table, the sales-person taken from another table and the customer details taken from yet another table.
Database report will benefit the company by making it easier to drop down information such as names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses so that company record can be more organised.

An advertisement is a type of brochure document. It  is a form of communication to persuade a large number of people to by a product or a service through various media - web, tv and leaflet.
The advertisment has to send a message, certain emotions to the audience so they can remember your product. It must be unique and simple to understeand to appeal to the maximum amount of people. Pictures or colours are used to help people to identify the product easily and to encourage them to buy it.
The elements included are:
·         The name of the product or service
·         Which benefits the product or service will give to the customers
·         Persuasive writing and images to the target market to encourage purchase of the particular brand

There are three points that advertisers must take in to account for the ad to work properly.  These are:
A compelling headline: You have to stimulate curiosity, so the product or service can catch the interest of the target audience.
Benefits: You have to explain to your audience why your product is the best compared to others
Strong call to action: Once you have captured their interest with a strong headline,  you have to indicate the availability of your product throgh web, phone, store and leaflets.

The new graphics are really going to revolutionize the gaming industry forever.http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS6yPzKP6HvD2BT93umv45GRch8gikIT-xG6Ei-bviGrGtw2147http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSwH8srG_INeGV8HJ5C0zl5Xg-vG_zJQ4PZsbcZ1bRbi_cWZdekKwhttp://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSwH8srG_INeGV8HJ5C0zl5Xg-vG_zJQ4PZsbcZ1bRbi_cWZdekKw

What is a Desktop PC?


Is a personal computer in a form intended for regular use at a single location, as opposed to a mobile laptop or portable computer.

Prior to the widespread use of microprocessors, a computer that could fit on a desk was considered remarkably small.

Desktop computers come in a variety of types ranging from large vertical tower case to small form factor models that can be tucked behind an lCD monitor.

A desktop can also indicate a horizontally-oriented computer usually intended to have the display screen placed on top to save space on the desktop.

Most modern desktop computers have separate screens and keyboards. Tower cases are desktop cases in the earlier sense, though not in the latter.

Cases intended for home theater PC systems are usually considered to be desktop cases in both senses, regardless of orientation and placement.

WWE Smackdown


On the 26th October 2010, the infamous video game creating company released their latest game in the WWE series, WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2011 on the entire console format (PS3, Nintendo Wii & XBOX 360).

   THQ designed this game to re-enact the action that is shown weekly worldwide on the massive wrestling brand WWE. In this series the player is given the chance to find out how it is to live as a wrestler by installing the new Universe Mode, which consist of you picking a particular wrestler out of a big roster of Superstars (WWE wrestlers) to use & win matches move up the title rankings. On your path to success you will encounter past enemies and also produce new ones; all of this will happen in various cut scenes.

Obama Alien Defense


This game is from the miniclip game site. A game site direct from Google.

Alien Defense is a simple adventure game where the aim of the game is to save America and London from the alien invasion. It is an adventure game which is suitable for the majority of ages.

There are various levels in the game itself each level has Obama fighting off more aliens and collecting more coins.

The plan is to kill the aliens to achieve as many points as possible and collect all the coins.

When travelling through each level of the game there are energy packages which once touched by Obama will restore any energy you have lost.

Alien Defense is a game I think can become highly addictive because it is so simple to play and with each level it allows you to save what you have done encase the player was to lose all their energy before reaching a energy boost they would be redirected to their previous saved level. Another plus about this game is that it can be paused by pressing ‘P’ on your keyboard so there is no rush to finish the game or have worry about losing if you are distracted.

I think it’s interesting and helpful because it helps people the basic and the more they learn the more they develop on a higher level of using multimedia.

The basic format for storing data in an Access database is a table. In a table, data is entered in rows, each row is known as a record.

Advantages and Disadvantages of a database

What are the advantages of a database?
  • A lot of peoples can access the same database at the same time and the information is easy to access at any time.
  • A database management system is simply a large file with data in it. This is used especially in business. For example you could have a database of all your customers and what they have bought from your shops. 
  • Improved data security – it is much more secure than a paper based system.
  • All database system of the information is together and not in lots of little ‘pools’ of data spread throughout the company.

What are the disadvantages of a database?

  • Database system takes a lot of time to design.
  • Initial training is required for all programmers and users of the system.
  • A database system is complicated and hard to use without proper training.

Most of the disadvantages are not to do with the database itself but with the time and money that is needed to set one up in the first place!

What is a Spreadsheet?

Lots of people use spreadsheets but when you ask them, sometimes they find it difficult to define what a spreadsheet actually is!

So, what is a spreadsheet?  Put simply, a spreadsheet is an accounting worksheet. It contains cells known as rows and columns. Each cell can contains text, numbers and formulas.   Calculations can be simple – such as adding and subtracting – but spreadsheets can perform incredibly sophisticated tasks such as forecasting future results for an organisation.

Spreadsheets are used for financial information because of their ability to calculate automatically again and again once an update is being made to the program. Microsoft Excel is the about the most popular software application for spreadsheets but there are many other packages out there which work just as well.
