Accounting Software The pros and cons of two popular programs Marian Cahir Managing your company's accounting can be intimidating. You want to spend your time on your business, not on your books. Perhaps you no longer need to be convinced of the value of computerizing your accounting -- instead, you are facing the task of choosing the right software for your specific business. Two readily available accounting software programs -- QuickBooks and MYOB (Mind Your Own Business) -- exemplify some of the features to look out for. Both of these two software packages do an excellent job of the basics: tracking receivables, payables, payroll and budgets. However, there are some differences in features that could have an impact on your business. The main differences involve inventory management, time tracking, networking capabilities, and other miscellaneous factors. Here are some considerations to think about in choosing accounting software: * Do you keep track of inventory? If you do, and you put two or more of your inventory items together to produce an enhanced, or finished good, you need to be able to keep track of both levels of inventory.

The new era of Offshore IT Outsourcing.
Essay 4-101 Moushomi Sinha The new era of Offshore IT Outsourcing Information Technology outsourcing is the process of contracting out an organization's IT functions, eliminating the need to maintain on-site staff to perform those functions (Lieberman 7). These business functions are usually outsourced to companies in developing nations and have a very significant impact on the economic and social setup of both countries. For centuries the production of goods and materials has been outsourced to countries like China. However, outsourcing of IT is a relatively recent phenomenon that started as the technology landscape in the United States became more and more competitive. Over the last few years software corporations have looked for ways to keep their profit margins high by reducing the costs. That combined with the evolution of technology industry in lesser developed parts of the world has given rise to the phenomenon of outsourcing. Outsourcing software development, especially to India, has become extremely popular over the last few years, and picked up even more momentum lately. (Lieberman 21). The practice began with the development of India's technology universities and training infrastructure. The programming skills needed in software development are readily available in countries like India and China. A company can hire well-trained, professionally educated IT
The Use of Big IP in Gamer.TV.
The Use of Big IP in Gamer.TV Introduction: The aim is to find out about a particular piece of software used in a Business and write a report on it. To start this I needed to find out about a company and what piece of software they use so that I can gather some information on what the software is and does, and also be ready to see it in action. I chose a company called Gamer.TV because it's a large multi-national company that uses many different types of software, whilst also making some of the software themselves. Their most important piece of software that the company uses and keeps the company running is their Load Balancing Software called Big IP by F5 Networks. I thought this would be the best software for me to do because it there would be a lot for me to look at and therefore write about. Also I thought it would be the most interesting. Load Balancing is where you have a range of servers and as users make requests the software directs the user through one of the servers, it sends the user through a particular server if that server happens to be quicker than the others at that time. This service depends on the way the software and hardware has been set up. Gamer hosts a large number of different features including, turn based games (TBG), Single player games (SPG), Forums, Private Messaging Buddy List.

A Day On The Job
A Day On The Job Working for the Jackson Hewitt Help disk is no easy task. It takes hard work and dedication as well as mental stability to complete the daily tasks presented before you. Although not every call is difficult, dealing with some of the franchisees takes a great deal of tolerance. Some of them believe that you as a technician are responsible for every problem that occurs on their system. Most fail to realize that computer problems are inevitable and we are here to help resolve the major issues, which occur as a result of the Jackson Hewitt programs. Being a computer tech is no easy task. You have to be able to envision the problem at hand and resolve it without actually being there. Not a day goes by that does not consist of at least one "why" call. Why did that happen? Why does the programs have errors? It is hard to explain to an "end user that problems occur with all software applications. One thing that helps the day seem to pass faster is the fact that we are like a family here. If someone has a problem, there is always at least one supervisor they can talk to, who can relate to what's going on. If you don't have a sense of humor there is no need to apply with this help desk. The daily routine is to joke around with each other in the same manner brothers and sisters would. Not one person who was lacking "people skills" has lasted at this help
