Electronic Document Distribution Takes Hold

Posted on December 15th, 2015 by Dr. Fun!

eddPaper, still the most prevalent means of communication in business use today, is not always the most effective way to share information across an enterprise, and it is certainly not the most friendly to the environment.

Electronic document distribution is quickly becoming the fastest, most cost-effective and environmentally friendly means of business communication, both within and between businesses and public sector organizations such as the city of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

The workgroup concept has also been instrumental in bringing electronic document distribution to business offices. To be productive, teams of workers need to share information in a timely manner. Groupware can facilitate the rapid flow of information among business teams: a sales representative distributing purchase orders; a manager sending out an interesting magazine story; an engineer sending a drawing; or, a co-worker distributing a map to an off-site meeting location.

Although the electronic communications market …

Certification Works

Posted on November 22nd, 2015 by Dr. Fun!

ctfwsRecently Kevin Brown, president of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS), sparked a debate amongst IS professionals by suggesting that they upgrade their skills and pursue certification or risk unemployment. He noted that CEOs are increasingly disenchanted with the low quality systems that are being delivered in spite of massive technology investment.

Brown’s critics have responded by suggesting that he is an apologist for CIPS and for its ISP certification program and that executive disenchantment can just as easily be blamed on vendor vaporware, or other complex factors, as lack of skills.

According to Morven Wilson, executive director, university computing and information services for Dalhousie University in Halifax, “The IS profession should not be compared to other certified professions such as doctors, lawyers or technical engineers because the professions such as doctors, lawyers or technical engineers because the profession is very complex.

“IS project …

htmabSome people whose writing skills fall on the average consider learning how to make a blog easy. However, there are a few who are good in writing but failed in blogging. This simply shows that writing blogs is not only for skilled writers.

Here are a few things that can hamper even a very good writer to learn how to make a blog. First, some good writers think they are not computer savvy enough to do something in the internet, which is wrong. Some blog sites are made using programs that can be installed easily. After you have made your blog site, you can write content without worrying about high sounding and technical terminologies. Second, some good writers have very low self-esteem and self-confidence that they fear that nobody will read their blogs. This is a negative attitude. You must put to mind that as …

Paper Still Haunts Workplaces

Posted on November 18th, 2015 by Dr. Fun!

pshwRemember how technology was supposed to liberate offices from the tyranny of paper? It didn’t.

Despite the near-universal use of computers in offices across North America, the paperless office has yet to become reality. However, Silanis Technologies Inc., a Montreal company, has come up with a solution that may not make paper disappear completely but could go a long way toward fulfilling the paperless promise.

Most documents today are created on computers and we could avoid the high cost of paper if we could just store them electronically.

Unfortunately, business requires signed originals.

Most engineering firms must comply with the ISO 9000 specification which requires that the authorization of technical documentation be verifiable, and that verification requires a signature.

However, simply affixing a digitized signature to an electronic document is no guarantee of authenticity. Anyone can scan someone else’s signature and print out a signed …
