Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a cross-functional enterprise system driven by an integrated suite of software modules that supports the basic internal business processes of a company. ERP gives a company an integrated real-time view of its core business processes such as production, order processing, and inventory management, tied together by ERP applications software and a common database maintained by a database management system. ERP systems track business resources (such as cash, raw materials, and production capacity) and the status of commitments made by the business (such as customer orders, purchase orders, and employee payroll), no matter which department (manufacturing, purchasing, sales, accounting, and so on) has entered the data into the system. ERP facilitates information flow between all business functions inside the organization, and manages connections to outside stakeholders.
SEO / SMO / PPC
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or “un-paid” or “organic” search results.
Search engine optimization is simply the practice of making your website or blog more accessible to both search engines and search engine users; in other words, you’re making it easier for them to find you.
Social media optimization (SMO) refers to the use of a number of social media outlets and communities to generate publicity to increase the awareness of a product, brand or event. Types of social media involved include RSS feeds, social news and bookmarking sites, as well as social networking sites, such as Twitter, and video and blogging sites. SMO is similar to search engine optimization in that the goal is to generate traffic and awareness for a website. In general, social media optimization refers to optimizing a website and its content in terms of sharing across social media and networking sites.
PPC or Pay per Click is where you pay to list advertisements that link to your website, also known as sponsored search results. You’ll see PPC search results in Google at the right side column of the search results, the amount you pay per click depends on your competition, in your Google Adwords Campaign (where you set your PPC up) you would bid an amount you’re willing to pay for certain placements.
Linux (Listeni/'l?n?ks/ lin-?ks or /'li?n?ks/ lee-nuuks) is a Unix-like and POSIX-compliant computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution. The main form of distribution are Linux distributions. The defining component of Linux is the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on 5 October 1991, by Linus Torvalds. Because it considers Linux to be a variant of the GNU operating system, initiated in 1983 by Richard Stallman, the Free Software Foundation prefers the name GNU/Linux when referring to the operating system as a whole (see GNU/Linux naming controversy)
Cloud computing, or something being in the cloud, is an expression used to describe a variety of different types of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet. In science, cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing over a network and means the ability to run a program on many connected computers at the same time. The phrase is also more commonly used to refer to network-based services which appear to be provided by real server hardware, which in fact are served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines. Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up (or down) on the fly without affecting the end user—arguably, rather like a cloud.
Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language.
Advantage of the COURSE
Android can Run Multiple Apps at the Same Time: The current version of iPhone OS does offer limited multitasking, but only allows native applications such as Mail, iPod and Phone to run in the background. Android users benefit greatly from this discrepancy, as they can receive notifications, listen to music, or even record GPS data without keeping the application open. Android Keeps Information Visible on Your Home Screen: Android has is a customizable home screen which keeps active widgets right at your fingertips, always accessible and always visible without having to launch an application first. Android Has a Better App Market: It's true that Apple's App Store has over 180,000 applications, while the Android Marketplace has only just broken the 50,000 mark but Android rapid growth and adoption give it the potential to catch up to the iPhone App Store. Android also has another advantage: a completely open market. Android Gives You Better Notifications:
The iPhone has some trouble with notifications. Because it's restricted to pop-up notifications, it can only handle one at a time. Android Lets You Choose Your Hardware: Apple users are encouraged to Think Different but when it comes to the actual hardware, they don't get much choice. Android Lets You Choose Your Carrier: AT&T truly is the iPhone weakest link. The iPhone success turned the country fastest 3G network into a staggering mess of dropped calls and dodgy data connections. Android Lets You Install Custom ROMs: Android has a small community dedicated to building custom ROMs for Android devices. Not only do Custom ROMs bring the same functionality Jailbreaking does, but they also bring an additional level of customization to your phone. Android Lets You Change Your Settings Faster: iPhone users are stuck digging around in the system settings every time they want to use the internet or a Bluetooth device. Android lets you use widgets to manage your settings directly from your home screen Android Does Google and Social Integration:
The iPhone can do this only through use of third party apps, and is nowhere near as seamless to use as the Android alternative.
Android Gives You More Options to Fit Your Budget: Every major cellular carrier (except for AT&T) has at least one Android phone available free with two-year agreement. Of course these are lower end Android devices, but they are still comparable in performance to the iPhone 3GS.
