3.0Requirements Analysis and Specifications

3.1. USER REQUIREMENTS
3.1.1. Functional Requirements
1. The system should be able to automatically update and retrieve client loan details whenever required by users.
2. The new system should be able to limit errors during data entry by users.
3. The system should provide a high level security for transactions
4. The system should be able to accept data from users through use of interface and interactive forms. 5. The system should allow management of loans which includes creation, modification and deletion of the loans records within the system.

3.1.2Nonfunctional requirements Usability
The loans processing System strives to be as simple and intuitive as possible.

Customers having laptops with internet connectivity will be able to access loans processing system. Customers using cell phones are able to see the amount awarded and interest rates charged.
Reliability
As a web-based system, the loan processing System will be very reliable. The customers will be able to access it with ease and get all the information with less complexity. Performance
Performance for any web application should be as high as possible. When working with a cell phone, only the most necessary data is sent. Because there is very little searching the system shouldn’t see much lag. Because the interface will be visually simple, the time to information will be based largely on database queries, keeping wait times to a minimum. Supportability
If an error occurs in the system, the user is notified and given the option to submit the error to the server. The error is logged in a log file for the administrators to look at. Interface

...Make reasoned recommendation about how particular organisation can take advantage of IT development. As an ICT manager working for full of beans, I have made it clear that the development of ICT is increasing, therefore giving organisations no choice but to adapt to the changes. It’s my duty to explain to the owners and employees of full of beans how the ICT development can have a positive impact on the organisation. For example, fast processing which is essential for banks and vast storage capacity which reduces the amount of paper work. Hardware and software are both being used by organisation to help them accomplish certain tasks e.g. using (MIS) management information system. Hardware and software increased in power, capacity and sophistication, therefore allowing organisation to expand and work more efficiently. I strongly recommend that full of beans make use of this opportunity to adapt to the ICT developments. One great example of a new development full of beans can take advantage of is the recent wireless technology, many organisations responded to this change by adapting to the change. In order for full of beans to take full advantage of the ICT development, obviously the manager first needs a presentation on the capabilities of these development and how it will benefit their organisation. There are many new developments that organisation took advantage of, I will explain some of these development in more detail below. Wireless technology This is a great......

What Is Ict?

...Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) refers to the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the fields of socioeconomic development, international development and human rights. The theory behind this is that more and better information and communication furthers the development of a society. Aside from its reliance on technology, ICT4D also requires an understanding of community development, poverty, agriculture, healthcare, and basic education. Richard Heeks suggests that the the I in ICT4D is related with “library and information sciences”, the C is associated with “communication studies", the T is linked with “information systems", and the D for “development studies”.[1] It is aimed at bridging the digital divide and aid economic development by fostering equitable access to modern communications technologies. It is a powerful tool for economic and social development.[2] Other terms can also be used for "ICT4D" or "ICT4Dev" ("ICT for development") like ICTD ("ICT and development", which is used in a broader sense[3]) and development informatics. ICT4D can mean as dealing with disadvantaged populations anywhere in the world, but it is more seen with applications in developing countries. It concerns with directly applying information technology approaches to poverty reduction. ICTs can be applied directly, wherein its use directly benefits the disadvantaged population, or indirectly, wherein it can assist aid organisations or...

...obligations that it needs to meet. According to Wood and Brotherton (2008, p.331) Lodging businesses can no longer expect to succeed without the solid support of information technologies (IT), this is true for a variety of reasons but is partly because the current customers that the lodging establishments are looking to attract are part of the Net Generation, these people are surrounded in their daily life by IT, if these people are not provided with the technology that they are used to using they will not return, hence lost business. ICT is now a prominent part of our daily life, within the tourism industry it is quickly becoming an important tool for a hotels organisation, it enables them to become competitive and is a good way of communicating with both consumers and partners. ICT is increasingly becoming a source that is enabling competitive advantage for the hospitality industry (Buhalis 2003, p.336). (See table 1). The introduction of ICT is especially important for TVU as it is classed as a small to medium sized hotel, this is because it currently has 18 guest rooms which will be rising to 25 after the improvements have been implemented, this size of hotel was defined by the World Tourism Organisation (2000) as a SMHO when they stated that a hotel with less than 50 rooms is categorised as a small to medium sized hotel. Studies have shown that the smaller hotels can benefit significantly from the introduction of technology, these benefits can include: •......

...Communication has been defined as "the transmission of information and meaning from one individual or groupnto another". The definition of Information and Communications Technology(ICTs) is said to be a diverse set of electronic systemsand resources used to communicate, create, disseminate, store and manage the internet. The main purpose of communication technology is to facilitate effective communication between individuals or groups that are physically distant from each other.

However, ICTs in health will be the main focus in this discussion as I elaborate on the impact of information and communications technology. ICTs plays an important role in our modern day life. There is a growing consensus that the impact of information and communications technologies on health systems could be substantial or even revoluntary through the precise nature of the impact is much more difficult to predict, it seems that the health sector will benefit from advances in mobile telephony and Internet services.

The use of computers and the internet for enhancing the quality of education by making learning more relevant to life has been seen as an ideal by educational institutions. The citizens of tomorrow who are our students now are going to live in the age of the electronic media. How are we preparing them for the same? Are we giving them technology based Education? Are we giving them exposure to the use of computers and the itnernet? Have we integrated the ICT into classroom processes? What are the efforts made by the department in this direction? What does policy say about ICT in Education? There are several such questions which we need to probe into. An understanding of these issues will enable us to use the ICT more meaningfully in Education. Information and Communication Technologies have recently gained groundswell of interest.
