The storage and retrieval of data interacts in many ways. In most instances computerised data is obtained from paper based information. An example of this is the wages system.

At the end of the week, the total hours worked by each employee would be calculated along with any overtime and bonus. This information is then entered into the organisations computer system.

- Parasitic Wasps - 2,778 words
Parasitic Wasps Malaria is one of the most prevalent and dangerous diseases known to man. It has existed for centuries and affects a myriad of people in the tropical region.

However, the protozoan that causes malaria has existed since man came into being. Fossils of mosquitoes that are 30 million years old contain the vector for malaria. After writte ...

... hat particular toy, including store positioning data, color, shape, and toy genre. Market data can be included in a second descriptive value associated with the object.

Would information about the store collected by the store stay there? Other stores can benefit greatly from its collected market and buying trend data. Should the central business offices be the only ones to see market data, or should individual store managers have access to this data each day? The answer is, both. The indiv ...

- The Use Of Data Warehouse In Decision Making Process - 1,625 words
The Use Of Data Warehouse In Decision Making Process INTRODUCTION It is obvious that there is no organization running without data. The data can be viewed as tangible assets of an organization just as any physical asset. So, they need to be stored and made available to those who need them when they need them. However, the data by themselves are useless. So, they must be put together to produce useful information. In turn, information becomes the basis for relational decision making. To facilitate the decision-making process, a new development of database systems was developed called "data warehouse". The data warehouse can be generally described as a decision-support tool that collects its d ...

- Y2k Horror - 1,966 words
Y2K Horror Over the years, the technological world has advanced rapidly, and humans have come to rely on computers for just about every aspect of daily life from education, to communication, to banking, to electricity, we depend on technology. The Y2K "bug" seems to be a vicious reminder that our technology is just a tangled connection of imperfect, haphazard systems we have come to let run our lives. The year 2000 or the Y2K problem is caused by a "short cut" imbedded into many computer and microchips. In the 1960s, to conserve what was then precious and expensive memory space, computer programmers shortened the four-digit year to use a much more economical two-digit method for example, 78 ...
