A Basic Understanding of Information Technology Certification Programs

A Basic Understanding of Information Technology Certification Programs

Every industry in this time and age requires information technology to be able run smoothly and effectively. Due to this factor there is an increasing demand for experts in the field of IT. Technological aids are being used to teach in schools, hospitals are using advanced medical technology and also government institution needs to share and store data in large volumes. These are just a few of the many instances of the role of technology in most organizations.

As days progress, there is demand for qualified experts that have certification in information technology. Unlike in the past IT has wide areas of specialization. In view of this fact, colleges, and universities keep on researching to unsure that the certification programs that are relevant and add value to graduates. Technology has evolved to capture issues of innovation, development as well adaptation of existing technology.

The professional certification in computer and related technology is commonly known as information technology certification. The IT certification programs are offered by most colleges and universities. This certification programs are an equivalent of ACCA certification in the accounting field. However unlike most fields, IT is ever changing and the certification programs acquired at one time or another need to be updated and renewed time after time to stay relevant in market. This is applicable mostly to certifications that revolve around products and services offered by a certain company.

Information technology has several specialty fields that one can focus on. The fields offered for specialization include data base management, information and systems analysts, information systems auditing, software engineering and network administration. Most of the certification programs in information technology are offered in progressive stages offering different skills and take one at a time.

There are many IT certification programs are also available online. Caution should be observed while …

How Do Technological Advances Affect Business in IT?

Hello everyone, I am writing this short article to educate users on what happens when peoples machines are too slow or too ‘old’ But what is old? 1 year, 5 years 10 years? There is no definitive answer, I have a 5 year old PC that I have looked after and it still zips a long and has no problem when it comes to e-mails, word processing and web browsing. Which is exactly what a business PC needs? So don’t ditch your old PC’s after 2 years and spend a ridiculous amount of money buying new ones, in fact… In most cases an upgrade my only be necessary and as long as you are running weekly virus scans, disk clean-ups and defragmentations your PC should remain healthy.

A lot of the technology market is driven by big companies, they force old products out by stopping all support for them, let’s take Microsoft’s windows XP for example, XP no longer has mainstream support and will stop receiving extended support in April 2014, so what happens after that? You are forced to buy a new operating system thus contributing to the market to keep it running, are you doing this out of choice? I guess not. Don’t get me wrong, you will be glad you did upgrade but people should be able to choose, luckily most of the time they can.

How do you know if you need a new computer or just an upgrade? Well there are a few things to look for, now ask yourself:

– Does my PC struggle to load basic webpages, even though I have a broadband connection?

– When I access data does my PC suddenly make a loud spinning noise?

– Can I not run some games or applications due to insufficient hardware?…

What the US Navy Needs for the Future

Overall, I see the US Naval Research well suited for priming the pipeline of future technology, and yet, just because they are presently, well it is not time to rest on our laurels because there are other potential enemies afoot developing their own weapons systems. Weapons which may challenge us in the coming decade or two, and once you get behind in the technology race it takes years to catch up. In my humble opinion and without ego, I believe that the US Navy should have the strongest force in all the oceans in this solar system, and I am not exaggerating when I say that either.

Okay so, not long ago, I was challenged on specifics of exactly what I mean by that statement so let me give you 8 new technologies we will need to maintain our naval superiority moving forward in the twenty-first century. For the US Navy, well, yes, I have some fears I’d like to see shored up to protect our Nation, Assets, Foreign Interests, Allies, and protect shipping world-wide while maintaining the ability to strike immediately or respond to Natural Disasters.

I’d like to see our Naval Researchers look into some of these Great Projects and concepts. Below I have listed some of my ideas, but realize this was a 10-minute exercise, so there are many more bundled in my head, to add to this list:

1.) Ability to Swarm combat UAVs (carrier based)

2.) Ability to defend fleet against swarm anti-ship missiles with Aegis,  Lasers, Metal Storm

3.) Off-shore underwater early warning via UUV, AUV (powered off of ocean  wave, volcanic vent, wind energy re-charge) forming a net-centric net

4.) Track all foreign subs, ships, attack boats, robotic assets – friend or  foe (pollution signatures, advanced sonar, satellite, AUVs in fish …

3 Construction Tech Trenfs To Watch In 2018

3 Construction Tech Trenfs To Watch In 2018Technology is affecting everything, and the construction industry is no exception to this. What used to be just part of sci-fi movies are slowly turning into real-life applications that have helped in improving productivity and safety at the same time. With new and practical applications being developed on a daily basis, there’s definitely a lot that we should look forward to.

That said, allow us to discuss the 3 construction trends to watch out in 2018.

1. The Use of Advanced Materials

The world of construction materials in the construction industry is advancing at a very remarkable rate. This enables further research and development, which contributes to overall efficiency.

In the last couple of months, there are a lot of remarkable innovations that entered the scene. There’s the “Self-healing” concrete that contains bacteria that’s sensitive to water. It germinates when water goes through these crack, and the gaps are then filled.

Let’s not forget “Kinetic Paving,” which refers to the collection of energy coming from the footsteps of pedestrians which is converted into electricity. If there’s 3D printing, there’s also 4D printed structures which are way better. It’s capable of reshaping and re-assembling over time according to how they are formed. They also react to various elements, such as the “smog-eating” buildings, and other chemicals that neutralize pollutants in the building.

2. Online Jobsite

New technologies have been getting rid of the details in communication that usually happens on the job site, with the project team, and other areas prone to error. Jobsite connectivity is becoming more accessible to achieve– thanks to the use of connected smartphones and tablets capable of sending and receiving information in real time to everyone who’s part of the project planning.

3. Exoskeletons and Wearables

Exoskeletons are one of the few technological advancements that …
