As the technology gets better, the computers can make some informed decision which the office workers and managers may not have enough time to make. Such decisions can be to crunch the profit numbers in order to determine the future profits and to determine the layoffs or to gauge if the global offices have to stay open or not. If you want to evaluate if the decision made by the computer is the right one for your company or not, then you have to implement further technology in the corporate strategy.
The technology of computer increases the storage. Even if the human brains are capable of processing a high level of the information, the computer can contain even more information and data, and this depends on the storage space of the computer. The computer can have a high level of the information which cannot be contained by the brain alone like the complex equations and algorithm needed for the decision making which may lead to good results.
Computers are able to process the information in a faster and accurate way. An advantage to when the computer make the decision, is that the decision is going to be made faster and also accurately compared to the human brain since it can hung up for different factors and this involves the decision which led to slow results. The people can be tired and can suffer inaccurate decision while the well tuned computer is alert and it can process the reams of the information and it will not be tired or bored while making the decision.
Expensive computers are the computer with the right technology, the right equipment and the right computer memory. However, this is one of the setbacks of the computer technology because not everyone can afford expensive computers. The cost of the computer professional who will write the algorithm that you need, increases the cost of the computers in general. Another problem of technology is that it becomes obsolete faster since technology is always advancing and it is always made to be better.
When the computers are used most of the time to make the decision, some managers may feel as if their own decision making is not given the importance and this may diminish the morale of the employee. However, as the people can use rational and subjective, the computer is always rational. When the subjectivity is eliminated in the process of the decision making, the result will miss some elements which should have been of concern.
The computer technology is found in different areas such as music player or IPod, modern appliances, cell-phone, CD player and ATM. The negative impacts that are caused by the technology are errors, loss of privacy, crime, poor customer service, alienation and unemployment.
The general positive benefits brought about by the technology are cost and time savings, less effort and convenience, many transaction options, new types of jobs, the improvement in the crime fighting and in customer care, few errors and satisfactions. There are few errors that take place, new ways of communication and new ways of entertainment.
