What is the Difference Between OMR Readers and OMR Software?

[ad_1]

So you finally figured you need a way to automatically mark exams or surveys? You may have already read about OMR (short for Optical Mark Recognition or Optical Mark Reading) which is the process of computerized imaging equipment detecting marks made on paper forms used.

OMR is not a new technology, it has become widely used since the 1960s. The 1990s introduced a lot of changes in both cost of and features associated with OMR. Notably, the 90's saw the adoption of OMR software over the traditional OMR reader. While they both achieve the same basic purpose, OMR reader solutions are completely different from OMR software / scanner solutions. You should be well informed of what the differences are before making a decision to purchase one or the other.

OMR Readers

Once an extremely expensive machine, the OMR reader has become much cheaper over the years and is now quite affordable for most organizations. The most important point for people to remember with OMR readers is that they are NOT image scanners. OMR readers consist of a number of LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), often between 40-50 of them which shine reflected beams of light toward forms passed through them at a timed speed. The reflection of this light helps sensors in the OMR reader determine if marks have been placed in the form's "bubbles". Most OMR readers read forms that are professionally printed and contain "timing tracks" that assist the reader in determining which row of bubbles the machine is reading. OMR readers can also have adaptors for barcode detection to help assist in the automation process of matching form responses to their responder.

Pros:

  • OMR readers can have the ability to have separate hoppers for automatically rejected forms.
  • You can pack more bubbles into an OMR reader form than one read by OMR software as most OMR software applications use silhouette extraction and are sensitive to closely located objects.
  • Faster when compared to low-end document scanners.

Cons:

  • While speed was once the biggest benefit of OMR readers, high-end document scanners such as the Canon DR-X10C have recently caught up to the speed of OMR readers for a similar price. Hence, speed is not always a benefit of OMR readers.
  • OMR readers are still considerably more expensive than a document scanner / software solution.
  • OMR readers can not record handwritten (ICR) or typed data (OCR).
  • OMR reader forms are not as customizable as software forms.
  • You can not easily print your own customized forms as the bubbles may not always line up with the timing tracks and columns. Usually requires you to purchase OMR forms.
  • You do not get a digitized copy of the form.
  • Can not automatically de-skew forms. Forms must be fed in straight.
  • Can not read pen marks without an ink reader or paying more money for support that is built-in.
  • Can not read barcodes without adding a barcode adaptor or paying more money for one that is built-in.

Best suited for:

  • Large scale OMR projects where you do not want to sort through unrecognized pages.
  • People who want high density mark forms.
  • People who already have an existing OMR reader and do not want to re-train staff to use OMR software.

OMR Software

Software based OMR requires an image scanner to work. That is, OMR software extracts mark data from computer images such as TIFF files. An image scanner is generally a flatbed scanner or document scanner. Some OMR software applications can also read data from images taken by digital cameras and fax machines. Please note that the features and implementation of OMR software applications vary greatly, you will also need to compare these when selecting an OMR software application.

Pros:

  • Forms are customizable and interchangeable when scanning.
  • Image scanners can be used for more than just OMR scanning.
  • OMR software forms do not need to be as exact in alignment as OMR reader forms.
  • Can optionally read barcodes, handwritten information (ICR) and typed information (OCR).
  • Allows you to keep a digitized copy of the form.
  • Cheaper than OMR readers.
  • Can optionally automatically de-skew. Forms can be automatically rotated to make the images straight.
  • Can read blue pen and pencil easily.
  • Can read any barcode type the OMR software supports.
  • Better automation with automatic ID generation / reconciliation and form personalization.

Cons:

  • Cheaper document scanners can only hold small amounts of paper (between 50-100 pages)
  • Cheaper document scanners have low duty cycles (around 3000 pages per day)
  • Can not put bubbles as close together as OMR reader forms.
  • Can not physically sort unrecognized documents.

Best suited for:

  • Everyone except the cases stated above.

Conclusion

OMR software has consumed a lot of the OMR hardware market in the last decade because of its flexibility and power. However, a market still exists for OMR readers and will continue to do so until low-end document scanners catch up to the speed of the average OMR reader. It will also exist until someone develops a way to automatically sort forms that are unrecognized. The best advice if you are looking at OMR readers is to determine if you are one of the people who it is best suited to. Also, compare prices of OMR readers for the number of forms you want to process versus the cost of one or more document scanners that have an appropriate speed and duty cycle combined with a decent OMR software system.

The Effects of Information Technology on Management

[ad_1]

In today's business climate, technology is advancing more rapidly than many organizations can keep up with. Frequently, a number of the larger corporations, and even small to medium-sized businesses as well, now hire technology consultants and highly educated technical staff to keep their organizations competitive and up to date with the latest technological changes and improved software and equipment that can make their businesses more efficient and productive. However, the advantages for these businesses that do stay informed and up to date with the latest technological changes is that they are able to increase revenues and profits at a faster pace and promulgate the overall success of the company.

Technology is quickly becoming a key factor in any type of business, and the latest technological innovations are what are leading to not only increased sales and exposure, but also less costly methods of marketing and advertising and greatly increased productivity. In manufacturing, many processes that were once performed manually or machines that were operated by manpower are now being operated remotely and run by automated processes. With decreased opportunities for employment in manufacturing and less skilled trades, many workers are gaining an education and expanding their own personal skills to accommodate a changing business environment.

In administrative functions, computers have offered the benefits of readily accessible databases of information and streamlined processes as well. Virtual offices and even telephone answering systems that operate as robotic receptionists have decreased the need for many positions here as well and offered businesses a more cost-effective approach to completing simpler office tasks. In terms of sales, the internet has helped open the doors for increased globalization and the ability to increase profits by reaching more people at one time. As a result, telemarketing and door to door sales calls have become not only unwelcomed by the general public, but also an outdated means of selling goods and services.

While the overall benefit to the end consumer is lower prices, businesses still reap the rewards of these decreased costs of operation and also greater efficiency and organization. For management, the increased reliance on information technology creates a number of issues. In terms of human resources, today's human resources managers are searching for employees that are well trained with computers and know how to operate the latest technological equipment. In addition, a number of today's top firms are hiring employees that telecommute or work from a remote location, and managers are now frequently managing teams from in front of a computer.

Another aspect of increased information technology that affects today's management is security. Hacking, phishing, and other online security threats can create real issues for any type of business, but today's managers have to be prepared to deal with these kinds of threats, teach the importance of security to employees, and know how to react when security has been breached.

Dell Corporation's Influence on Sun Microsystems

[ad_1]

When Dell came into the market it was a high threat of substitute products or service for Sun Microsystems. Dell on the other hand had a low threat because not many other companies came out with customizable personal computers. It was easy for Dell to enter the market because it was one of the first companies to provide those products. So there was a high threat of new entrants, but now that many companies are providing customizable computers it will be more difficult for new companies to enter the market. There is a high rivalry among existing competitors in the computer market because you can only sell so many computers. Each company is after the same customer and they need to compete to get the customer's attention.

I think that Dell had a similar impact on other computer vendors in the same server market because Dell was on of the first to come up with customizable computers so all the other vendors were hit just as hard as Sun Microsystems. Sun's supply chain now very closely mirror's that of Dell Computers. Both are shorter. I think it is wise to mimic a competitor relatively closely, at least in the computer field. If both companies have a shorter supply chain and can lower costs than in the eyes of the consumer quality and price are the elements being compared. This makes the competitiveness and playing field fairer. Blockbuster is now doing the same with Netflix. A customer is able to get a movie sent to the house and keep if for as long as they want with no late fees. The convenience appeals to people. Customers feel less rushed and are not throwing away hard earned money on late fees. Sun's collection of software can be an integrated interface. The collection integrates information, provides one suite of applications, and cuts the supply chain shorter. Organizations have to be very organized in the process of getting different vendors to talk to each other. By knowing which vendors do the best work they can order from specific vendors and keep the chain running smoothly.

Sun now does customizable personal computers. They have increased efficiency in the supply chain so that the product is delivered to customers within the promised time 95 percent of the time. This greatly helps with competitive advantage because it is very difficult for companies to guarantee a delivery time. The manufacturers tap into Sun's order-processing system and generate a customer invoice and shipping order for the customer. They also assemble, configure, and test your system before sending it directly to you. The delivery time has made the company become much more efficient. This created an information partnership with its supplier manufacturers.

Customer relationship management uses information about customers to gain insights into their needs, wants, and behaviors in order to serve them better. The Principal's efforts are a great example because it gathers information such as age, marital status and family status, salary, and benefits about their customers. This information helps the company to advice customers on how to control their money. Information technology within Principal is both top and bottom line. The IT support fast turnaround times for transactions and is used to find information about customers. So for top line to reach new customers and offer new products that will relate those customers, and bottom like to optimize manufacturing processes and successfully process almost 1 million online transactions per day. Principal's focus is to grow and increase market reach, product and service offerings, and expand market share. Principal's strategy would be focus because it does so much research on its customers to offer products and services to a particular market segment. Principal focuses on customers in need of financial advice mostly for retirement and the specific advice to fit those customers.

Principal could use an ERP system just for software to organize and make their award wining information technology more efficient. I think as service offerings become more and more popular, there might be a need for a service version of ERP so the companies that do not have physical products can still gain from resource planning. If I was considering the financial services needs of a customer, I would want to know job history, real estate, education after college, driver history, and general interests.

Software Testing Certifications – How to Choose Which One to Take

[ad_1]

As a software test professional, you may be considering adding a test certification to your qualifications. CSTP, CTM, CSTE, CMST, ISEB, ISTQB – there are many certifications available and it can become confusing to understand which one is best for you. This article will explain what to look out for when deciding which software testing certification you will take.

Firstly, lets take a look at some of the certification acronyms. CSTP (Certified Software Test Professional) and CTM (Certified Test Manager) are both certifications offered by the International Institute for Software Testing (IIST), which is based in the US CSTE (Certified Software Tester) and CMST (Certified Manager of Software Testing) are offered by the QAI institute, also based in the US The ISEB (Information System Exam Board) offers a number of IT related certifications, including software testing and is associated with the British Computer Society. ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) offers the certification "ISTQB Certified Tester" over a number of levels.

The first question to ask is if the certification offer different levels ?. Different levels can continue to build your certification as your career progresses. A career in testing generally starts at the test analyst level, then progresses to senior tester, test lead and then test manager. A certification program that offers certifications aimed at different levels starting from a basic or foundation level to advanced and test manager levels, may be more useful than one that only provides a single certification level.

Find out if the certification is more widely known and available only in certain countries. The Certified Software Test Professional (CSTP) qualification is a US based qualification and as such is only available in the US, whereas the ISTQB certification is available internationally and has local representation in many countries.

Does the certification require attending training courses or can they be completed online or by self study? Attending training courses in person offers the benefits of completing a course in a certain time period and having access to a qualified instructor, to listen to their experience and to be able to ask questions. Training courses can be expensive though and some people will prefer an option where they are not required to attend a training course but can complete the course in their own time by self study.

Does the testing qualification require work experience? The CSTP certification has a requirement that the applicant has worked in a test related role for at least one year. While this is OK for those already working IT and in testing, if you are looking to break into the field, this will not be a suitable certification to study for.

Does the certification qualification count towards earning other testing certifications or other qualifications ?. For example, holders of the ISTQB certification will gain credit towards the CSTP qualification. The foundation level of the ISEB certification is equivalent to the ISTQB foundation level. Other certifications can offer credit against university or college degrees.

Does the certification expire? If the certification expires you will need to take the time and expense to study and take the exam again after some time. The CSTP certification is valid for three years and after that, testers need to qualify again to keep their certification.

Is a testing qualification mentioned in the job advertisements in your local area? Take a look at what qualifications are mentioned and if they are desirable, preferred or required. This can vary by country, for example in the UK many job advertisement will mention the requirement for a tester to be ISEB qualified.

What Is The Difference Between ERP And Enterprise System?

[ad_1]

Enterprise system and Enterprise Resource Planning System terms are similar but there is difference between an enterprise system and an ERP system. An ES or enterprise system is a large scale system which includes packages like ERP and CRM. ERP is a subset of Enterprise System or it can be said that ES is a superset of ERP. It contains a variety of solutions. ES contains applications and packaged solutions which can be directly used in an enterprise. On the other hand ERP system is the automation of the business processes and the solutions are in the form of modules which are designed according to the client's requirements.

The functions are customized according to the client's business environment. Enterprise system does not include architecture of other solutions whereas an ERP implementation automates systems using technical aspects. ERP system includes architectures and databases and is client server architecture. The system is server based therefore the consultant needs to be aware of the technical aspect too.

Another difference between an ES and an ERP system is that the ERP is aimed at improving the functionalities of the organization whereas the ES helps to improve the overall maintenance and accuracy. It provides for better solutions and aids in decision making. ES is difficult to implement compared to Enterprise resource planning and even the timeframe needed for implementation maybe more. The overall impact is high but so are the risks involved. If the ES is not implemented in the right manner, it can cause business failure and if implemented properly it can increase the efficiency and profits of the business organization. It is normally required when there is a big drawback in the current procedures and methodologies in the organization and need to be corrected. The company going in for enterprise system needs to be careful while choosing the software and the vendors due to the risk of failure involved.

The difference between an enterprise system and an ERP system is that ERP is mostly used for medium scale companies to big companies and ES is restricted to the big companies. There are many complex functions involved in big companies which can not be provided solutions for alone by ERP. The role of ERP is restricted when compared to enterprise system because it does not include customer relationship or vendor management.

These applications are needed when the business process is complex and on a big scale. Therefore bigger organizations need to go with ES instead of enterprise resource planning alone. ERP is also an important system to streamline the internal processes but it does not provide for taking care of the external processes. Enterprise system takes care of the end to end business process of organization since it involves other applications also like SCM and CRM. There is quite a lot of difference between an enterprise system and an ERP and it depends on the company whether it wants to go with an ES to streamline the entire process starting from supplying, production and customer or whether he wants to go with an ERP system to streamline the internal process.

Why Has Social Networking Grown So Fast in Popularity?

[ad_1]

So What Makes Social Networking So Attractive To The Online Community?

What used to make them popular was the sheer ease in which they allowed for communication. Originally that is just about all these social web services were actually good for. People would log in and be able to communicate with each other through postings, primitive blogs, and in some cases instant chats. Over time these things evolved and services that used to only allow for one of these forms of communication began to open up and offer the others as well.

Social Networks Allow For Much More

The first thing that makes these networks distinct over plain and simple web postings is that users can choose select friends lists. Those lists allow users to decide which people on the internet can view the things that they put online, and whose information they want to see for themselves. That this concept has become more efficient in practice is one of the things that made the services' popularity grow.

Being Interactive With Visual Elements

Another key feature of just about every social networking site on the internet is the ability to upload and view photographs. This practice has grown in popularity in tandem with the increasing adoption of digital cameras. By adding this clear visual element to be shared between networks of friends, the benefits of the services became even more astounding. While letter writing and phone calls have made simple communication possible for decades, the concept of instantly sharing images between friends and family is quite new.

More than simple images, social networks now allow for videos to be posted by users as well. This idea took a bit longer to catch on than the posting of photographs, but over the last year or so it has seen the average home computer advancing in its abilities, and it has seen peoples ability to record digital videos expanding fast as well.

The Incorporation Of Portable Internet Devices

Perhaps one of the biggest attractions to internet social networks has come from the sudden boost in adoption of portable internet devices. When internet capable cell phones first grew in popularity it was squarely within the business community, but as they became more advanced and affordable, regular everyday consumers started snatching them up. It was a natural move for social networks to open up easy access to users of these devices.

Social Networking Is Here To Stay

All of these benefits combine to make social networking a difficult thing for people to avoid. It allows them to share all of those simple to use benefits with people they are close with as well as people who they, until now, have not been able to maintain regular relationships with. The appeal is undeniable, and all of this will only see more people jumping on board during the next few years.

Operational Reporting Versus Informational Reporting

[ad_1]

The majority of organizations face the same problem when it comes to accessing corporate information. It is a somewhat old problem and the organizations are long aware of it. The most suitable solution for this problem is represented by a new software technology, known as data warehouses. This new solution was met with a lot of enthusiasm mostly because it was thought that reporting was going to be handled by those data warehouses. However, this is not always possible because some types of reports need to be provided by an unique type of data warehouse.

Basically, operational reporting can be defined as a way of providing updated information and detail reporting on a constant basis. Both front-line operations and the reporting system are being handled by responsible personnel. Detailed decisions can be made easier with the help of operational reports. Opposite to these reports there are informational reports. This type of reports is used by different organizations. Because it serves the analytical community, informational reporting is seen by most as a more strategic option. Based on informational reports and the summarized data presented within them, the organizations are capable of making suitable long-time decisions. There are several differences between informational and operational reporting, the most important one being the fact that any data warehouse should be capable of handling informational reporting even if it can not handle the operational one.

For a clearer picture, operational reporting is used mostly at the transaction level. In other words, through operational reporting all daily activities are being supported. In order to achieve this, operational data reporting is based on details rather than summaries. Here is a list of some of the most relevant examples of operational reporting: production records, bank records, flight logs, transaction reports, various daily adjustments etc. The common factor of these reports, and also their most important aspect is the amount of comprised essential details. These details have a great deal of influence when it comes to important manager decisions.

Operational applications treat individual transaction data using a granular type of level storage. Because of this, it is important that any operational system has built-in report generation, in order to undertake a directly approach towards the operational reporting.

On the other hand, informational reports are being used as a mean to summarize strategical information. This way, the organizations are capable of making long-term decisions based on well documented and thorough reports. Here is a list of informational reporting examples: shipping costs, sales, revenue, employees etc.

Advantages and Disadvantages Of Installing a Custom Rom On Your Android Phone

[ad_1]

WHAT IS A ROM?

ROM stands for Read Only Memory. ROM is an operating system which runs your droid and is stored in the read only memory of your phone.

To classify there are two types of ROMs:

STOCK ROM:

Stock ROM is pre-loaded into a device by the manufacturer and is optimized according to the device configuration. It has a lot of restrictions for the user.

CUSTOM ROM:

Android is open source, so developers can take the code and customize it to their taste, add features to it and build a new operating system.It is a customized android operating system normally stored on the read-only memory of your mobile phone and replaces the manufacturer operating system.

BEFORE INSTALLING A CUSTOM ROM:

Before installing a custom ROM a device needs to be rooted. Rooting an android devices means lifting off restrictions enforced by the manufacturer. Rooting enables tons of customisations for your device.Rooting changes your privilege from guest user to a super user. It is considered as a protective measure but some people do not like them as it restricts them from some customization they want on their device. But keep in mind, rooting your device voids your warranty but some custom ROMs are worth it.

Installing a custom ROM has both advantages and disadvantages.

ADVANTAGES OF INSTALLING A CUSTOM ROM:

LATEST ANDROID VERSION:

One of the most common reason to install it is the updated android version. Users are able to install the latest version of android on their phone which makes their old phones look new. It does not only make them look new but also it provides the user with better performance as the newer version is more stable than the old.

PERSONALIZATION:

Another reason people choose to install it on their android phone is the tons of customisations available in them. Sexy and stunning themes can bring a new look to their devices. It enables the users to customize the UI (User Interface) to their taste.

OVERCLOCKING AND UNDERCLOCKING:

This is not really an advantage of installing a custom ROM, but instead it is associated with the custom kernel (a system file which is like a driver for the operating system) installed with that ROM. Well anyway, it allows a user to overclock or underclock their device. Overclock means to run the CPU processor or GPU of the device at higher speed than the one intended by the manufacturer. This provides you with higher performance but, I will not recommend it as it can cause damage to the device. Underclocking is the opposite. It is the modification of the system to run at a lower speed then intended. It does provides you with longer battery life but, in exchange for some performance. You can also install custom kernels.

REMOVAL OF BLOATWARE:

While rooting does enable the user to remove bloatware apps installed by the manufacturer but, still the user has to choose which app they want to use and which they do not and manually uninstall every single one that they do not want to use. While custom ROM developers remove these apps while they create these ROMs, they do not include them in their operating system, thus the user only has to install it and now his / her device is bloatware free.

CUSTOM MODS:

Tons of custom mods available for a custom ROM attract the users to install a it on their device. These custom mods vary from being really simple like increasing volume beyond the manufacturer limit to huge modification of the custom ROM like the multi-window mod or the pie controls mod.

PORTED USER-INTERFACE:

It enables a user to experience a wide range of UI and choose the one that suits them best. Like the Sense UI for the HTC phones which has been ported to many different phones enabling the users to experience a HTC phone without even buying a HTC phone. User can also choose to install the stock android on their phone which is faster than the customized one installed on phones like Samsung or HTC.

DISADVANTAGES OF INSTALLING A CUSTOM ROM:

BRICKING:

Another cause of user being hesitant of installing a custom ROM on their device is the fear of bricking which makes the device unusable and nothing more than block of brick. It is mostly feared because there is no way to recover a device from that state.

BATTERY LIFE PROBLEM:

These ROMs may not be fully optimized for your device which results in the battery life issues causing it to drain more, not charging properly or even damaging the battery.

HARDWARE ISSUES:

These ROMs may not support all the hardware on your device which may result in the non-fuctioning hardware or other issues, like the camera not working or taking picture at a lower quality.

BUGS:

These ROMs are not tested like the one pre-loaded by the manufacturer so this produces some bugs which produce instability, like applications force closing (which can be really annoying) or random reboots of the phone or the phone being stuck in a bootloop (really terrifying for a newbie).

CONCLUSION:

Well here are the pros and cons of installing a custom ROM, but you do not fully know whats going on until you try it out. I, myself use a custom ROM on my phone and I am happy with it. But, everyone has their choice so you may make your and also keep in mind that neither I am responsible nor the ROM developer for what happens to your device.
