Windows 10 and its improvements

Microsoft has reinvented, upgraded and refreshed its Windows many so times in the last few years that one would hope that the designers will put an end to the process. But ending Windows is not part of the plan of Microsoft. Instead, the company introduced a new iteration of Windows; Windows 10. Officially unveiled in late 2014, the latest Windows is now changing the way private users and business owners use their personal computers. This time, Windows 10 is not just an operating system reserved for personal computers; this latest OS from Microsoft can now work on phones thus adding a new meaning to mobility and productivity. Improved user experience now possible Improved user experience is one of the latest offerings of Windows 10, which should serve as good news for professional and advanced users. Starting up the operating system is faster when compared with other earlier versions of the OS. Managing files is also easier thanks to an improvement in file history management. With this new OS, the user identifies a back-up drive and it will automatically create backup copies for files saved in Desktop, Favourites and Libraries. The frequency of updates can be adjusted depending on personal preferences and project requirements. Expect a boost in productivity The storage space has been improved, allowing it to recognize a variety of external and internal drives thus allowing more files and documents to be stored. All of the data in the computer are automatically backed up in case there is a problem with the computer, or the drive experiences a failure. This should be helpful for business owners and corporate users that see business and corporate data as critical in boosting the bottom-line. And speaking of a productive work experience with Windows 10, users and fans of Windows will be glad to know that the latest version of Windows now carries a native antivirus. Everyone knows how ‘dirty and malicious’ the web can be, and any moment your PC may get a virus or malware that can compromise system security and confidentiality of files and data. This is now addressed by Windows 10 without having to buy another expensive antivirus program. When you install Windows 10 in your PC, it now comes fully loaded with the Windows Defender. Think of the Windows Defender as your initial defence against malware intrusion. This malware protection may not necessarily trump other premium antivirus programs out there, but you can be sure of a layer of protection for your...

Implementing Casino-wide Information Systems

Implementing Casino-wide Information Systems

The implementation of new information systems is no easy process. This could benefit any organization or company re-hauling their data collection or simple business tactics and internal maneuverability. Certainly at a casino there are components unexpected and ensuring each member of your team succeeds in following the proclaimed direction, it is pivotal that a strict regiment of education and trial and error is afforded. First, one must work through all levels of management and provide a wealth of information which will trickle down into those working in the lowest tier jobs at the casino. Naturally, each job is of as much importance as the next, but this system of understanding and passing on gives every employee the chance to make mistakes and correct them. On the floor, you have your dealers, your bar-keeps, waitresses, security and all other under-the-radar posts that make the roulette wheel go round. Launching each casinos modern information system is a slowly and carefully curated process because it involves so many very vulnerable issues. One could bring up casino security. This process is important in preserving exactly what retains a casinos investment and longevity. All parties thus have to be on board. How will they adapt to camera placement, or even approaching cheaters and swindlers. Does security have enough information passed down from camera workers to successful detain a suspect without a scene? These are all important parts of a casinos new information system implementation. I find that these often come with problems. I’ve been gambling before and I can see that either security is not in touch with their role or some new worker took a step over his allotted boundary and is paying the price both because customers saw this and because he will hear about it from his manager. Anyway, i cannot stress any further the importance of a casinos information system and I hope these levels of awareness...

Information Systems and Data

Information Systems and Data

That’s the name of the game. Nothing more can be said than data. Big data and small data. All of it is so significantly relative to the successes of your internet experience. Information systems in this regard focuses on the networks of software users have with which they are able to process and create data.  This component of navigating the inter-web, from communicating from one to another person, to storing and retrieving information. Data, as far as I know, rules the world. The ability to navigate statistics and human action. These abilities are certainly novel to modern comprehension, but they are being developed and used so readily that from articles to policy-making, data is the king. It’s funny, today you can get degrees and achieve a long and fruitful career with no more than the ability to critically analyze data. Now, that is no easy feat, but it is still accessible for many with a bit of interest and patience. Data in many cases gives the beholder a higher comprehension of chances. In that regard, I must acknowledge the importance it holds in casinos. Data gives casino owners and managers a leg up on how their customer is prone to act. How much chance should we allow, or even what aesthetic would most likely get this or that clientele to spend more money. For a casino, data equates to a money making dream. Naturally, chance with a heavy hitter allows the ability to tough blow, their invariably pervasive control over all numbers at play, from people to games played. For the gambler, from blackjack aficionados to texas hold’em experts and even slot or roulette players, data through information systems can very well be on their side. However, it takes extensive research to ever come to this result. Also, tapping into available information is tough. But, if you play a conservative game and read your average opponent, with which data can certainly help, you’re much more likely to succeed in winning that...
