System Upgrade Project Proposal: Windows 10 Upgrade

  Proposal I am here to propose the process of updating our current PC systems to a newer version of the Windows operating system. Both businesses are growing rapidly and we are currently in the process of bringing in the latest and greatest of medical equipment into both offices. We are going to be utilizing key features on a lot of the newer equipment, like that of being connected to our computer system. With that function we will be able to track patient visits, treatments, records, and equipment functionality on any computer in both offices. The equipment does require specific hardware and software specifications to run smoothly. All of the current computers are currently not meeting some of the software and hardware requirements in order for the equipment to be compatible. The Objective Check software and hardware requirements for new software and equipment Determine if current computer systems meet software and hardware requirements Determine if current computer systems are able to be upgraded with new hardware and software Upgrade and/or replace computer systems that do not meet requirements Determine the time it will take to upgrade computer systems Determine cost of project and set up the time necessary to execute project The Opportunity Stay up to date current medical treatment standards with the new medical equipment Utilize the new equipment at its full potential Provide patients with a high standard in how they are to be treated medically Project Timeline of Execution The execution of the project will be done in a manner that will not interfere with business operations or treatment of patients. We would utilize the time...

Planning your business trip to Chicago – how to save on travel

There are many great options, in terms of convenience and price, to travel to Chicago from Milwaukee. The travel time from Milwaukee to Chicago is roughly one hour and 30 minutes. So our first immediate options are going to be travelling over the road. The first option would be travelling by car. It would be the most convenient option, for me at least. The price of gas nationally is just around $2 and the average miles per gallon is around 25-30 miles per gallon. All this information comes from travelmath.com and the daily fuel gauge report from AAA’s website. So based on the information given and calculated on travelmath.com, the cost of driving to Chicago would be under 10 bucks. There is also the perk of having the ability to use your own car to travel within the city, in case you wanted to go to get something to eat or just wanting to explore the area a bit. Another one of the over the road options is taking the bus. The cost of a ticket for Coach USA is 55 bucks is I start my trip from the Amtrak Station in Downtown and the cost from Mitchell Airport is only a few dollars less at $53. Now this would be a round trip ticket and the time of travel would increase from the hour and 30 minutes to around 2 hours and 20 minutes. The estimated time of travel is again based from the travelmath.com. Now lets go back the Amtrak Station, there would be yet another option of land travel. The time to travel is around the...

How to get Comptia A+ certification: step by step guide

The Comptia A+ Certification is one of the most important certifications to obtain as an IT Professional. For some, the A+ certification is the first step of getting into the IT Field as it can show potential employers and, or, clients that you are knowledgeable in various skills and tasks – for example, troubleshooting, networking and security. The Comptia A+ certification is recognized world wide and accredited and is 100% supported by the IT industry and all its subsidiary’s. Having the Comptia A+ certification is a great thing to have, whether you are new to the IT field or are a veteran of the field, because this will give those around you the confidence to trust you when it comes to computers. Now in order to earn the Comptia A+ certification, you have to know that the exam is broken up into two parts. So that means paying for two exams for one certification. I know that sounds like a bummer but trust me it is worth it. The first exam you would take is the Comptia A+ 220-801 exam, which primarily covers computer technology fundamentals. In laymen terms, that means that this exam will cover various topics like PC installations, configuration, mobile devices, networking, and safety procedures and prohibited content. So pretty much what I am trying to say that this portion will cover hardware, in a sense. The second exam you would take is the Comptia A+ 220-802 exam. You can probably put two and two together, since the first exam covers hardware, that this exam will primarily cover the software end of things. To be specific...

If I were to own my own smartphone repair business, I would do things my own way.

I am very fortunate to already have a job working in IT. Like most of us I have a passion for computers, electronics, and other devices. It’s great to have the opportunity to turn my hobbies into a profitable career. I am fairly new to working in IT in a business atmosphere and so far the experience has been mixed. The reason I say its mixed because of the hierarchy that is involved in a business environment. It has opened my eyes to the fact that I do not want to work for someone or a company. I realize that I want to call the shots and have something of my own. My own boss. I would like to think that most of the people out there working would prefer to be their own boss. After thinking about this idea long and hard, I have come to a conclusion. I certainly wouldn’t want to be working for someone the rest of my adult life. Of course I have never been one just follow orders all the time. I have the tendency to do things my own and a lot of people would say I would be doing things the right way. And the way I want to do things involve a lot of planning and dreaming. I already have some ideas in mind and I am in process of setting some realistic goals in place. My ultimate goal would to open a business that will offer computer, mobile, and electronic repair, as well as business and corporate solutions. So figure it like a mixture of a repair shop and...

If I can fix it you can too!

Most of us today have expensive things in our possession, items like smartphones, tablets, computers, game consoles, etc. And for most of us we have had to deal with one or more of these kind of items breaking down on us or damaged. I have had the tragedy of having the screen on my phone smashed and realizing that I don’t have the insurance. But instead of panicking about shelling our 700 bucks for new a phone or going on ebay to buy an outdated useless 3G phone, I instead took matters into my own hands and repaired the phone myself. After doing that I can say first hand that its not at all that difficult. Now for most people do not think its worth the time and effort to do self repairs like that, even financially. You could have easily picked up the insurance in the first place or go through other options like ebay or taking it to a repair shop to get it fixed. But I have to tell you that its worth doing it yourself. You do not have to be an IT whiz to fix things like a phone or a computer. That can be said for other things like your car or sink. There is great satisfaction for doing things yourself and it can actually save you money in the most part. Repairing things will make you feel like you can do almost anything even while saving a few bucks. Repairing things like a broken screen is not a whole day wasted either. Its more like an hour of completed work at the most...
