Many companies have self-reading and replying email systems and computers, which screen a Resume, by way of “character recognition” using SQL and XML databases. Do you really think your Congressman reads that garbage you send? No way. They have even figured a way to delete those messages from certain servers which allow you to go to a website, fill in your name and it blasts all your Senators. The Forest Service got 40,000 emails this way from a massive Spam internet site in the SF Bay Area when it asked for comments, then it delayed the committee, nothing got done and of course the Santa Ana winds and delivered us some pretty bad fires in CA. Gridlock bureaucracy.

Sometimes automated systems can overwhelm a company’s system, this time the government. This technology combined with voice technology should work in call centers and without the inherent problems associated with the Press 1, Press 2, Press 3 phone systems that make consumers angry and customer switch and lead to negative referral comments from users who eventually leave for another company. And in fact many systems are doing this now, with a synthetic human voice and a complex artificially simulate program behind it. Learn more about this voice technology and where it is going. Here is a white paper by VoiceGenie Technologies Inc.

Soon a nice voice will come on based on what you say and talk to you in a pleasant conversation. Now if you say something really weird you will screw it up such as;

“What is the price of rice in China today.”

If you are talking to an American Airlines call center the computer with a polite voice, not HAL, might say something like or first class price to China is $2,458.00 and you have 18,000 miles left on your;

“Free Miles” so your price would be $1,100.00 plus tip, tax and license.”

Then you can say something funny like;

“how much for the foreign rice because my Football Coach told me to eat them?”

Then the computer would say;

“Yes, we do play several channels, but you cannot watch Sunday’s game in Coach. The cost for coach is $988.00 if you book it now. Can I book that for you?”

Until this gets completely worked out, there will be a few problems. If you look at the TIA system and the Cell Phone activity. This has worked for the NSA and CIA for years, oh you didn’t know? Well this technology is finding it’s way into the private sector where of course it originated, here are some previous thoughts on this subject you’re your further study of the applications for such new technologically advanced systems;

Academic information systems (AIS) are those systems, which help support the academic computing and data communications needs of the specific academic institution. These systems function much like business information systems in which transaction processing occurs and detailed records in databases are maintained. However, there are other areas to note when discussing AIS. Not only can AIS be used to provide institutional computing support, but can also be used within the scope of instructional technology.

What is instructional technology? Instructional technology can be defined as the use of technology (computers, compact disc, interactive media, modem, satellite, teleconferencing, etc.) to support learning. The concept of instruction as with anything else has been changing over the years. As new technologies are invented, the methods of learning must change as well. It can be stated, that leveraging new technology to support instruction should provide a better means of learning by creating applications based on learner centered models. This means that the focus is shifted to the process of learning rather than the content, that the content and the teacher adapt to the students rather than expecting the students to adapt to the content, that responsibility is placed on students to learn rather than on professors to teach. In short, the learning onus resides on the students, but applications must be created in order to adapt to individual student requirements, as everyone learns in a different manner.

This learning model, is not just applied to the academic world, but can also be instituted in training modules for employees within the workforce (career based training). In fact the same application can be used for both academic learning and corporate training just by changing the learning object itself. As a point of clarification, without going into specific detail, learning objects are interactive exercises that allow the student to use the content learned in a particular part of a course.
Streaming media can be defined as audio and video files transmitted over the Internet in a continuous fashion .

Streaming media can be richly communicative, tapping in to the human ability to learn from sensory information. Humans are social animals and gain much of their initial understanding of others through their visual and auditory capacities. Visualization of problems and models, or hearing the voices of lecturers provides an ability to relay information that plain text cannot match.

Within educational systems, streaming video is gaining more and more popularity. Using video is not new within the classroom environment. However, being able to view programs or small portions of programs can be enticing, especially when an instructor utilizes a course Web site, where he/she may link the appropriate video to the specific lecture and students may view lecture materials, including video, at any time they wish.

Working in the Internet or new technology industries (that in many cases go along) demands a lot of efforts and knowledge. In general, when say ‘Internet’ we actually need to precise the exact sub-category we are talking about: website creation and development, website design, social media, e-commerce…

If your career is linked to Web or IT company you need to be aware of everything happening around your company, even not directly impacting it. All topics are related to each other on the web. And success in a job is always equal to your knowledge and experience.

While experience comes with time, you need to work on your knowledge by yourself.

Even if you’re working in a company with a specific product, e.g. website selling mobile phones online, you need to know so much more not directly related to your product and job, like:

• how to be ranked by search engines to come up on the first page of results;
• how to promote your website on social media website;
• what new trends are there is tablet market – almost mobile phone rival;
• how to develop an app for iPhone, Android and Microsoft Mobile for your online shop;
• what e-payment system to choose and why;
• and so on…

On top of that the industry itself is evolving so quickly that we sometimes cannot follow it.

Main topics covered by Internet and Tech magazines
To have an idea of what you need to know to succeed in your career in IT world, let us look at the main topics covered by Techcrunch or Mashable: the biggest website about Internet and technology:

• Social Media: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube
• Mobile and mobile apps: App Store, Google Play; Microsoft Store
• Gadgets and innovations
• Startups
• E-commerce: Amazon, eBay,
• Payment systems: PayPal, Square, Amazon Wallet, Google Wallet
• Dev & Design: HTML5, Use Experience, etc.
• Blogging & Entrepreneurship
• Software
• Storage
• Security

This list could go on by adding more and more new information and new topics once break-through products are launched as they usually change the whole understanding of how we use the web.

What search engines can tell us about Web and High Tech
It is also interesting to see that all these topics are very popular, some more, some less, throughout time. Here is statistics of Google Trends for some search queries from 2004 until present time:

Another interesting finding is related to Google AdWords. After entering only 3 search queries: ‘web’, ‘internet’ and ‘new technology’ – you can get the following keyword suggestions:

• gadgets
• webdesign
• website
• information technology
• computer technology
• innovative technology
• internet games
• mobile internet
• web hosting
• new trends
• IT news

It clearly shows how broad is this topic. Way to go for us to learn them to obtain all necessary information about Internet and new technology.

Additional areas of expertise
In addition to the topics highlighted above, you need to be aware of other important skills to have for your career in IT and Internet, such as:

• Content Management. This area of expertise is related to Website Development, but also Social Media and PR.
• Project Management. The ability to manage projects and motivate teams is essential in the Internet and IT industry as all launching products are in fact new projects inside an organisation. The most difficult part is usually that the teams are spread all over the world.
• Marketing. This is almost equal to Social Media these days – promotion of products through Internet. This area related to understanding of your Customers & Users, ability to attract and keep them.

How new trends in Web and Tech can affect your work
You cannot just specify in one narrow area if you want to succeed and advance in your career. You should always be aware of what is going on in the market, what new products are launching and how it all can affect your work.

Let’s look at how mobile revolution affects our work. As a content manager I’ve faced a necessity to find out more about development of mobile devices as it impacted my work directly. Who would know in the first place? I had to develop skills in accordance with this new global change: going mobile. It meant that I had to adapt my usual content to small screens, come up with shorter terms, be able to send a clear message in just a few lines.

As a designer you’ll need to be able to squeeze the page depending on the device used and be sure it looks nice and professional. As a developer you’ll have to find ways to reduce the page load time.

In case of social media development as a customer service agent you need to know new channels users can use to contact you and be proactive in those channels, like Facebook page.

In order to be successful we need to be proactive and react fast to the changes the Internet and new technology prepare for us. But due to the fact how fast these changes are implemented it may be particularly difficult to foresee them.

It is not that you need to know some specific information about some specific product. You just need to know how the world of web is developing. For example, how was the Wikipedia created, or who is Anonymous and what he is doing. These types of ‘companies’ can affect even some non-online institutions, like governmental affairs. They can also give you some insights on how certain things may be done: for example, the fact that the greatest encyclopedia has been created by people themselves without any material motivators, like salary or worldwide recognition.

And our success in Internet and tech area depends on our knowledge about this market.

It can be compared to financial analysts: any event in the world in general can massively affect stock prices.

Generation of new experts
This being said, once we enter into the world of the Internet and High Technology we need to be prepared and alarmed about what is happening in the industry. It may help us not only be up-to-date with the news, but also excel our competitors by following the innovations first and create new products by ourselves combining our knowledge in different areas.

it1Information System and technologies have become a vital component of successful businesses and organizations.

Information System means an interconnected set of information resources under the same direct management control that shares common functionality. A system normally includes hardware, software, information, data, applications, communications and people, while an information system is the arrangement of people, data, processes, presentation of data and information technology that supports our everyday needs. It is actually technologically implemented medium for recording, storing, and disseminating linguistic expressions, as well as for drawing conclusions from such expressions. The computer technology is used for implementing information systems.


Information System can be divided in two basic forms



It is further subdivided into
the following

o Transaction Processing System (TPS)

o Enterprise Collaboration System

o Process Control System



It is further subdivided into the following

o Management Information System (MIS)

o Decision Support System (DSS)

o Executive Support System (ESS)


The steps which are involved in the development of an Information System are:

Analysis, Feasibility Study, System Design, Testing, Implementation, Documentation.


It is generally accepted that information is a vital commodity for the successful operation of today’s organizations. Nowadays modern business organizations are using computerized information systems in order to obtain desired information. However, as the technology advances rapidly the main issue is how can an organization should effectively use such an information system which its management sometimes can be unpredictable in order to effectively help the whole organization structure to improve and take the most out of it.

It seems fairly obvious that Information systems have played an important linking role even before the advent of the Internet. Thus, for example, the possibilities offered by Information systems have strongly influenced the way managers were able to exercise control and therefore constituted an important factor in the organization of large-scale enterprise and their geographic extension. The same is true for governments and their statistical apparatus. The recent integration of computer networks and electronic data exchange facilitated the creation of common databases and policies among governments, speeding up developments, which had started earlier. It also created new possibilities for business, for example enabling companies to develop new organizational practices (e.g. just-in-time).

However, the role of Information systems in the organization is shifting to support business processes rather than individual functions. The focus is outwards to customers, rather than inwards to procedures. Businesses are changing more and more rapidly.

This poses a challenge to existing Information systems, which are often inappropriately structured to meet these needs. It also poses a challenge to the people who design, work and use these systems, since they may hold outdated assumptions.

To ensure the services provided by Information systems whenever needed and their failure will not cause catastrophic disaster their reliability and efficiency become extremely important. Imagine what would happen when a banking system malfunctions due to some critical faults in the system or when a healthcare information system provides wrong advice for patients.
It is even not over-saying that our lives are already under control of computer systems but their reliability and efficiency has become extremely important


There is a wide range of applications of information system that are implemented in today’s world. To name a few such as

1. Sales analysis, production performance and cost trend
reporting system

2. Product Pricing, profitability forecasting and risk
analysis system

3. Sales and inventory processing and accounting System

4. Geographic Information systems

5. Health Care Information Systems

6. Banking Information System

7. Petroleum Refining System

8. Power Generation System

9. Steel Production System
