Introduction

Task 2. From the information that I have found in task 1 about ICT in a business I am going to use that and relate it to a small local business. I am going to introduce a small business and mention the ICT that is currently present there. To start of this topic I am first going to introduce the small business and mention the current ICT that is present there. The business that I am going to help to improve on ICT wise is going to be a local food store.

* Business security - CCTV cameras are part of the business security, which is part of ICT because the CCTV cameras are computerised. This sort of ICT is used within the business. * Accounts - ICT is used for accounts because the businesses accounts are on the internet for example the account are present on online banking so if some money needs to be transferred to different account that can be done by using ICT. * Operations - The only ICT that is used for operations are the cash registers. This is where the money is kept for the day. This is run on by ICT so that no other customers can get money out the cash register and open the cash register besides the employees and the owner therefore the business will not loose any money.
