The Importance Of Cloud Technology In Everyday Activities

 

Cloud technology has been in constant use for a while and from all indications, shows no signs of being disused. It has become a virtual workplace of sorts and people love it.
The technology has redefined how some things are done. In no small ways, it has contributed immensely to different aspects of the human lives.

 

These aspects are:

 

 

Education

 

Cloud services are now being used in educational institutions as they have recognised the capacity at which it can help.

 

Students do not have to be physically present in class because they can get their lectures on the internet.

 

Also, they can now turn in assignments and write exams online without any glitch. The summary of this is, students can now study effectively without having to go to class.

Business

 

Business

 

Business activities form one of the bases at which a country achieves growth and development. The emergence of cloud tech has also influenced how business dealings are done now.

With Google docs, it is now made possible for employees of an organisation to work on the same task at the same time. How does this affect the workflow? Tasks are completed on time and another plus is, people can work from home and still function in their capacities effectively.

Healthcare

 

Healthcare

 

It is now possible for medical facilities to save volumes of patient’s data on the cloud. Medical personnel can also share their patient’s data easily. As a patient, you can now gain entry and retrieve your health information anywhere or anytime you want. These are some of the importance of cloud technology in our everyday life. It is now so essential that many organisations and companies have adopted its use. This simply makes us realise that cloud technology has come to stay and will continue to make our lives relatively easier.

Build Your PC, Save Some Money

 

PCs users, gamers and computer nerds especially have always obsessed about building their computers. They have always been interested in getting new hardware, evaluating specifications and performance and whatnot. These have been one of the thrills of the computer-verse. In this age, computer manufacturers are starting to be more proficient with their creations. Also, there are arrangements between these computer parts producers and retailers. This begs the question; do you really have to dedicate your time to building your PC when you can just buy one? This question may not be easy to answer considering the fact that a pre-built computer is in most cases inexpensive. Assembling your PC may require more money than buying one that has already been built. This begs another question: how do you save money building your PC.

There are some factors that need to be considered and that define how much exactly you have to spend on building your PC. Your main purpose of using it is one. Fundamentally, there are three kinds of PCs. While there may be an inexhaustible collection of hardware to choose from on, these three are mostly talked about by geeks.

 

They are:

 

Basic Functions PC: Work Tasks/Internet/ Office


These kinds of PCs are not too needy. They are used for basic task and so do not compel the use of much resources.
As a result, they cost little in to build; some hundred dollars will do. However, there are other factors that should be put in deliberation.
Technology goes out of date very quickly. Each passing day brings some form of new technological inventions and as it seems, there is no end to this cycle.
You should put this in deliberation. It is likely that basic tasks like internet use and office applications get some major tweak and use more resources than they currently do.
Therefore, if your computer has got some outdated hardware, you would have no choice but to get an upgrade.


Suggested Specifications


Investing on a very expensive motherboard is not always the way to go, using a basic Intel Graphics HD processor is more than enough for watching movies or whatever.
But here is another thing you should know, going for an Intel i3 or i5 processor is ideal because it results in better efficiency.
And owing to the fact that RAM has gotten much cheaper, you could get as much as 6gb RAM, even if you won’t need that much.
The Solid State Drive (SSD) is now one of the most fundamental computer hardware and is now in the mainstream. It is faster than the normal HDDs, so people are really going all out for it.


How Much You Can Save


Assembling your PC, in this case, a low-end computer may not see you saving lots of money. However, if you poke around, you can find astounding deals and save more.


Mid-Range Gaming/Entertainment PC


This types of PC, some years ago would have passed for a high-end PC. But with growing strides in technology and gaming, its influence has been greatly reduced.
They can still be used to play lots of games, but using medium graphic settings is the best it can do for the ones that require the use of a lot of resources.


Suggested Specifications


If you are about the gaming life, the first thing to know about is the graphics card. Lots of stores have the habit of selling off NVidia series graphics cards as gaming card in pre-built PCs. The truth is, these cards won’t work efficiently with recent games.


Hence, if you want to have the best gaming experience, consider using the NVidia GTX series graphics card. You can also opt for the AMD Radeon R9 series; they've got some budget friendly cards that do their jobs well. For other specifications, an Intel i7 graphics card is cool but for gaming purposes, it’s not much of an ideal option. You have to use an SSD for the best gaming experience. Additionally, minimum of 8GB RAM is what you should want to go for.


How Much You Can Save


The gaming world is extensive and so its PC market is vibrant. Stores, most times sell them for a very high price.
So you could save a lot, about 30 percent or more if you assemble the PC by yourself.


High-end gaming PC


Gaming can be crazy; their realistic graphics are one to die for. Now, if you want a PC that would satisfy these graphics requirement and give you the optimal gaming experience, then getting a high-end PC should be your priority.


Suggested Specifications

 

The best things in life don’t come free and be sure to know that they don’t come cheap.
If you want to enjoy playing games in high graphics mode, you would want to get the recent NVidia GTX cards; and they are not cheap.
Also, you can opt for an i7 processor for these kinds of gaming needs. Using 8 or 16 GB of RAM is also essential.
In addition, think about getting an SSD and an optical drive for storage. These are also essential as those games require lots of space.


How Much You Can Save

 

Although assembling a PC at this level can cost you more than 1,000 USD, the amount you can save is considerably higher than going for a pre-built one from a store.
Your savings could go up to about 40-50 percent because high-end gaming PCs cost at least 2,000 USD.

 

 

THE ROLE OF SYSTEM ENGINEERS

 

System engineers have now become important in different spheres of business although not many people know what they really offer.
This might be because they work in a field which many sees as new- seeing that it just got identified since the 1940s.
To help understand the concept better, maybe we should compare it with software engineering. Software engineering is all about creating, developing and executing abstract or conceptual structures computers use. Although the whole activities deal with abstract structures, people who make it happen are called engineers.


Similarly, system engineers have to do with abstract structures lots of time, not all the time though. To describe their roles effectively, we might have to break the two words into constituents.


Systems


A system could refer to a cluster of constituent parts working together as a unit.
Let’s use an advertising firm as an example. There is the creative department, traffic department, production department, accounts department and whatnot.
These different units work together to make sure the advert agency functions effectively. One department could also be broken into sub-departments.
The gist of this is that different otherwise independent units have to come together and work as a unit to function. This, we could say is how a system works.


Engineering


Engineering is a comprehensive field. It entails all form of research, development, and maintenance. However, system engineers have their own classification.
Engineering encompasses the use of different blends of different levels of specialisation to confront a problem. Hence, professionals who work in this capacity use different means to tackle problems. Still using the advert agency example above, let’s say hypothetically that the agency hires a team to help enhance the organisation’s internet presence so it’s available to all departments that need it.


The system engineer will see to the development of this and make sure that in the future, communication will not be an issue.
Trends from the social sciences and computer science would be of immense help here. If you are a thinker and problem solver, this might be an interesting opportunity for you. Of course, you have to love tech too.
