The Benefits of ICT to the System.

Report Task 6 The Benefits of ICT to the System Section 1 - Life without ICT Implementing the sub-systems on to the company's website without the use of ICT would have been very difficult, time consuming and extremely inefficient. Without the use of a spreadsheet all the calculations would have to be done separately, by calculator, this would require extensive man power and would be very time consuming. Without the use of Microsoft Word, all letters would have to be typed on a typewriter, this would have made inserting clipart or any other pictures impossible. Pictures would have had to be manually cut and stuck onto a space on the page left by the typewriter, this page would then have to be photocopied before distribution. ...read more.

Data security is also an issue, if data is kept in filing cabinets, this would require anyone wanting to steal information to actually break in to the office. With computers, data can be stolen from anywhere in the world if the target computer is connected to the internet. It is also very hard to trace the person that has stolen your data and it is very unlikely that your data will be recovered uncopied. Also if a computer is connected to the internet then it is open to receiving viruses and Trojan horses. If two companies/people are to communicate using computers, for example, sending documents to each other, then the two companies/people much have compatible software, if not then they cannot share files or communicate. If a company starts using ICT then they will have to train there existing staff to use these computers and train them every time the system is upgraded or changed. Alex Warham I.T ...read more.
