Records Management Information System with SMS Notification System

Great Domestic Insurance Company of the Philippines is one of the country’s leading and oldest Non-Life Insurance Company. It was formerly known as Domestic Insurance Company of the Philippines and was incorporated on July 3, 1946. For how many years of service, more and more people have become their clients and for that reason the business transactions became slow to accommodate every client they have. At the present, they would still rely on the Microsoft Excel Applications for the storage of their data. In addition, for every client that the agencies have, that particular agency would send all those records of policies of their clients to the main office; all those records are re-encoded by their underwriter. Due to some problems, the proponents were challenged to develop their Records Management System and Online Inquiry. Through the use of Web Engineering process model, the system was able to generate monthly reports on time (KITE-E learning Solution, Inc 2019).

NBI Clearance Online  Application and Registration Step-by-Step Process

Metadata management system for an information dispersed storage system

Stands an information dispersal system in which original data to be stored is separated into a number of data “slices” in such a manner that the data in each subset is less usable or less recognizable or completely unusable or completely unrecognizable by itself except when combined with some or all of the other data subsets. These data subsets are stored on separate storage devices as a way of increasing privacy and security. A metadata management system stores and indexes user files across all of the storage nodes. The management system stores data for dispersed data .

Business Information Sciences Emphasizing Digital Marketing as an Emerging Field of Business & IT: A Study of Indian Private Universities

Informatics is an interdisciplinary area and domain responsible for information related affairs with the help of technologies; particularly Information Technologies and Computing. Business Informatics initially was termed and popularized as a practicing area for the business affairs. Gradually the concept developed as a branch of study. The concept of Business Informatics was first introduced in Germany. Business Informatics is a combination of Business Studies/ Management with Information Science/Informatics. There are many related fields of Business Informatics viz. Information Systems, IT Management, Organizational Informatics etc. As the terms Informatics and Information Science are synonyms in many contexts, business informatics can also be called with nomenclature as Business Information Science. The branch of Information Science is a field of fields and thus it is also currently called as Information Sciences (the plural). Hence the branch of Business Information Science may also be called as a broad one with the nomenclature ‘Business Information Sciences’. The nomenclature Business Information Science with a degree in India is not yet started though as far as knowledge mapping is concerned the field may be designated with the nomenclature associated with Business and IT. In this respect, the subjects and programs like Information Systems, IT Project, Information Technology Management may be considered as important and vital for the field as ‘Business Information Sciences’. India is rapidly moving in higher education segment and thus many new branches have been developed and started in recent past and among these, Digital Marketing is an important one. Here in this paper an investigation and observation have been undertaken to learn about the Digital Marketing as a branch Interdisciplinary Sciences in Private Universities in India.

Management Information System

Management Information Systems often referred to as MIS is the people-oriented use of computers in business. MIS is both a field of study and a career path. It combines the foundations of computing, analysis, and business in to one field of study. MIS is a major that is growing in popularity; however, it is still unknown to many undergraduates. This thesis includes both research and creative aspects. The information gathered by research was used to generate the requirements for an information at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). This portal is directed towards three primary audiences: prospective students, current students, and alumni. The portal provides information relating to what MIS is, why to choose MIS as a major, what MIS majors can do, and what the MIS program at UNI entails. In addition, the portal provides current undergraduates with key resources for success such as potential employers, what alumni have done, and job opportunities (Benjamin Richard Lahue, 2014).

Phase 1 : Requirements Planning

Meeting with the project leader, researcher and the programmer to discuss the needs, projects scope and requirements of the system that need to be developed. The proponents plan to seek existing system and its features, after that the proponents study a new development from the existing system. The proponents found out that the existing system needs to developed more and to upgrade its features in order to keep up with the new trends in information technology.

 Phase 2 : User design

The proponents design the process where the Philippine Veterans Affair Office see a working prototype and give input on new requirement to the changes and newly developed system. The proponents has come up an idea to design the most simplest interface to get the attention, in line with that the proponents used the green and white color to be more readable. In our proposed system the applicants and Philippine Veternas Affair Office could easily use the system .

Phase 3 : Rapid Construction

The proponents develop first the back end portion of the system including the maintenance and databases of the system. The proponents makes sure that all data gathered from the pharmacy was filled out in the system’s database including the customers data, pharmacy data and medicines data. Consequently, the proponents construct the desired design of the system to see the output of the maintenance are functional. In the admin page, the administrator could view the registered admin user. The proponents designed that the admin user only could add, edit and delete in the admin page.

Phase 4 : Cutover

In this phase the proponents proposed system presented to the customer for consideration through evaluation of the proposed system and recognize Philippine Veterans Affair Office the strengths and weaknesses. Comments and suggestions that we collect from the applicants to upgrade of system in order to meet the objectives.

Priceprice.com,” n.d.), as this website showcase the present prices of the following devices.

Operational Cost

Operational Cost

This table shows the Operational cost of the researched system. The Operational Cost includes the maintenance cost and expenditures in using the proposed system.. The following costs where based on a particular legits websites to support the claims with regards to cost provided, as this website shows the current accurate prices of the following expenses. For electrical consumption of computers, the calculation was according to (“wattmatters | Consumption Calculator,” n.d.)As the electricity cost was based on the wattage of a regular computer (60 Watts) and hour use per day. Then the daily consumption result (5.00) will be base on the current electricity price of CENECO multiplied to 30 days (1 month) to get the total monthly electrical consumption. For internet cost, the price was based according to the latest internet promo prices of PLDT( Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company.) Lastly, for Maintenance, the cost was determined by estimating the minimum amount a programmer can demand after the maintenance is done. The maintenance price will be vary depends on the gravity of repairs.

Benefit of the System

Benefit of the System

This table shows the computed benefits of the researched system to the Philippine Vaterans Affair Office . The proponents have researched on what are the presumed amounts or value of each item that will benefit the Philippine Vaterans Affair Office over its traditional method per year.  Presumed value was base on how much the Philippine Vaterans Affair Office can save due to lower operating cost, data back up, efficient work Output and more.

Total Developmental Cost
