The history of computing could be told as the story of hardware and software or the story of the Internet or the story of "smart" handheld devices, with subplots involving IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter. In this concise and accessible account of the invention and development of digital technology, computer historian Paul Ceruzzi offers a broader and more useful perspective. He identifies four major threads that run throughout all of computing's technological development: digitization - the coding of information, computation, and control in binary form, ones and zeros; the convergence of multiple streams of techniques, devices, and machines, yielding more than the sum of their parts; the steady advance of electronic technology, as characterized famously by "Moore's Law"; and the human-machine interface. Ceruzzi guides us through computing history, telling how a Bell Labs mathematician coined the word digital in 1942 (to describe a high-speed method of calculating used in antiaircraft devices) and recounting the development of the punch card (for use in the 1890 US Census). He describes the ENIAC, built for scientific and military applications; the UNIVAC, the first general purpose computer; and ARPANET, the Internet's precursor. Ceruzzi's account traces the world-changing evolution of the computer from a room-size ensemble of machinery to a "minicomputer" to a desktop computer to a pocket-sized smartphone. He describes the development of the silicon chip, which could store ever-increasing amounts of data and enabled ever-decreasing device size. He visits that hotbed of innovation, Silicon Valley, and brings the story up to the present with the Internet, the World Wide Web, and social networking. 1. Language: English.

For over 20 years, organisations have been making use of information technologies to enable global distribution of products and services through the World Wide Web. This move to digital business has resulted in the need to consider usability from a global perspective, and in particular, the effects of cultural differences on user performance. Despite the large number of studies done in this area, many of the websites currently available are still difficult to understand and complicated to use. Consequently, this book proposes a conceptual model of usability that provides a more effective tool for continued research into the complex issues of usability and cultural diversity. The model is a synthesis of primary research findings and existing context of use frameworks, and includes new aspects concerning culture. Variables that need to be controlled for are identified, as well as strategies for controlling for these variables. For practitioners, the model can be used to provide a better understanding of the design and user experience goals that should be incorporated to make websites easier and more enjoyable to use, by matching them more closely to user needs and expectations.

Methodology to country risk analysis
71,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book entitled Methodology to country risk analysis is a chef oeuvre of academics who want to contribute to this untapped area from an African perspective. For many years, the discipline of country risk was belonging to the category of issues that are difficult to understand because information was fragmented or incomplete. For example, Banks knew neither the size of their loan exposure or to which countries they had lent. Corporations and investors had neither the information nor the means to assess the risks lurking in the shadows of seemingly profitable cross border transactions. Country risk was considered an opaque, unpleasant fact of life better left in the hands of international bodies like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the export credit agencies. However, in today's global economy wired to the World Wide Web, all this has changed. Information has become abundant, cheap and almost instantaneous as countries compete in transparency to attract foreign direct investment and portfolio capital. The problem is no longer a lack of timely information. It is rather one of deciding which information is important and then knowing how to process it.
