Solution Preview:Introduction and BackgroundComputer networking what we are having today has been started with the project ARPANET laid its foundation with the ARPANET project development in later part of 1960s and early part of 1670 and before that there were network terminal and mainframe computer in which any job can entered remotely from the terminal. Fundamental things of the project ARPANET was the resource sharing with the peer connected computers. ARPANET’s another emphasis was the relying on the packet switched connection between two computers instead of the traditional circuit switched data transmission. Although the term "network architecture" was still not in picture during the initial design of the ARPANET project and it was having only definite structure and it has introduced the layered protocol architecture in which communication will be divided into several layers and each layer will be having the respective work in the communication establishment and data transfer.Chronological development of computerBatch processing system: It was basically based on the mainframe computers in which user have to prepare the batch cards containing the program and data. Computer operator would insert these cards into the computing center and result of the processing would get after one day or after many days. If some error occurs then means result will be delayed by 24 hour at least. Multi terminal systems: Prototype of computer network: 1960s price of the computer processor drops and after that era of organized computing started and these methods of the computing appears convenient to the computer users. In time sharing manner computer can be used by the many user. User can have their personal terminal and by using that terminal user can connect with the mainframe computer and in this way computer can handle multiple users in parallel. Afterwards computer moved from computing center to the personal desktop computer over complete organization but still computing power was centralized and only input and output devices were distributed. Multiterminal computer which can work with multiple terminal by allocating time to each connected terminal become the first milestone and motivation for the innovation of Local Area Network.
This report aimed to develop a critical understating of the various accounting software by evaluating the cloud-based accounting software in regards to businesses and then suggest the most appropriate accounting software to a chosen company such as Woolworth. The findings of the current report reflected that the company has key activities like manage, organize, maintain its store staff, develop various strategies for the business, billing for their products, maintain their transactions, and records them and handle their conflicts, etc. Similarly, its other activities related to revenue and expenditure cycle also includes sales and purchase related practices. Moreover, some internal controls are found weak in Woolworth due to which company has risks like segregation of duties, major frauds, poor corporate governance, improper monitoring of managerial opportunistic behavior.
