Computing, a Pecis on Systems, Software & Hardware
eBook (PDF): $10.84
The world of computing got smaller in 1993 in terms of both new ultra-small computing systems and the downsizing of giant computer corporations. Yet for all its shrinkage, the computing industry... More > also reached out in a big way. The new, small computers were equipped with wireless networking systems, and home and office computers were offered the promise of networking with other computers worldwide on a data superhighway. Today, computing is affecting work and leisure alike, increasingly involved in factory and business operations, networking, defence, medicine, education and the domestic environment. Computers and their systems are influencing attitudes to privacy, employment and other social issues. To this effect, the reader must remember that the construction of a system is as complex as a house built in a swamp. It does, therefore, require careful planning and design. Just as a house must have an architect’s plan, so does a system. It must have requirements, system objectives and a blueprint.< Less

As a long serving Systems Consultant, I am excited about the draft diagrammatical techniques. They are proving their worth in a troublesome area of systematic data processing: the analysis and... More > definition of what a new or a converted system should do if it is to be of most value to the people who are paying for it. The discipline consists of an evolving set of tools and techniques which have grown out of the success of structured analysis and the use of diagrams. The underlined concept is the building of a logical model of a system, using graphical techniques which enable users to get a clear picture of the system-to-be and how its parts will fit together to meet the users requirements. The overall methodology is based on the principles of building a system top-down by successive refinement; first producing a hand drawn data flow, then developing detailed data flows in draft modes, until the users agree that the modelling will very closely represent their needs, as their original requirements were listed.< Less

Front-end Design for Systems
eBook (PDF): $9.19
This book is published with the specific purpose of setting standards and guidelines for Graphical User Interface (GUI) design and development. The book was originally a document written by PsySys... More > Limited and it is intended to provide a guide to designing and developing the presentation layer, or ‘front-end’ for systems applications. A further reason for writing this book is to ensure that high standards are adhered during systems developments. As an overall guideline, it is intended that various Microsoft Windows versions (95, 98, 2000 and XP Professional) look and feel is achieved. To this end, The Windows Interface Guidelines for Software Design (Microsoft Press) should be used as the definitive source of reference unless specifically overridden by sections contained in this book.< Less
A Guide to Information Technology
eBook (PDF): $10.49
There can be little doubt that information systems and computing in general, will become increasingly important in the years ahead. This book is, therefore, aiming to fill a gap in the current... More > business and tutorial literature. The Information Technology book has been designed for the business person, for the student and the computer professional who needs a detailed overview of Information Technology and the systems involved. The book explores the fundamental aspects of operational computing, the development of new information systems, the choice of packages and the structured methodologies used. Current systems are discussed according to their structure and the book focuses on further developments in information technology, the year 2000 compliance and their planning. In writing the book, the author is mostly concerned with the development and the managing of systems and people in multi-national corporations, software houses, government departments, the European Union Commissions and academia.< Less

More > Internet and the World Wide Web. It includes the history of the Internet, its current functions and the possible growth of the Internet in the future. It includes the Internet as a hybrid medium, combining aspects of the printing press, the telephone, the public bulletin board, and the private letter. It also covers transmission without the physical plant required by conventional broadcasting. Also, the prediction of super-speed and a possible successor network, that of an ‘information superhighway’, a term which refers to a unified, interactive system of electronic communication.< Less

More > building techniques. It carries on with the 19th century sciences and new technologies, such as the telegraph, the telephone, electricity generation and photography. It continues into the 20th century with advances in the natural sciences, including radio and television, sound recording and reproduction, synthetic fibres, pharmaceutical products, nuclear power, and the development of the computer and information technology, as a new technological revolution. It also covers; pollution, depletion of energy resources, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power, the recycling of raw materials, conservation of energy, and about people who in recent years sought to develop appropriate technologies, using local materials and techniques, in partnership with the indigenous peoples.< Less

More > pro-active management of risks. This method can be applied to any type of project, or programme. In essence, this is the mechanism by which the functions of programmes and projects are held together as a result of the principles operating within the I.T. risk analysis methodology. This is the systematic approach to the varied Events, their Assessments, and the consequential risks relating to or consisting of a system. Methodical in procedures and plans, these are addressed to those involved and deliberating within the parameters of their systems development responsibilities.< Less

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. AI is an area of research that goes back to the very beginnings of computer science. The idea of building a machine that can perform tasks perceived as requiring human intelligence is an attractive one. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time. Even supercomputers developed in the 1980s that use 'parallel processing' to carry out billions of operations per second barely begin to match human brain capacity.< Less
