It's a Multi-Core World: Let the Data Flow

A functional parallelism paradigm that fits multi-core processor architecture

The multi-core buzz is everywhere. Pick up a newspaper and the local electronics mega-store is advertising multi-core desktops and laptops to the consumer. Interesting, but what does it mean to the everyday Java programmer? Maybe nothing. If you live in the application server world writing EJB-based applications your application server does most of the heavy lifting for you. It handles concurrency just fine. But that doesn't cover all applications. Multi-core technology will especially affect applications that must process large amounts of data in a non-transactional (outside of a database context) manner. For this class of applications, the implications of multi-core are huge.

Inmate data-entry program is halted

The Utah Department of Corrections has temporarily suspended a data-entry program that employed inmates, after Grantsville's mayor received a letter claiming prisoners had compromised city employees' personal information.

The letter was sent in April by an inmate who did some of the data entry. However, corrections officials have since determined the inmate sent the letter to retaliate for being fired from his job.
Grantsville contracted with the Utah State Prison to have records compiled onto CDs. After receiving the letter, city recorder Wendy Palmer said the mayor had a letter sent out to city employees.

Flawed data-entry designs vital issue of survey

In response to Joseph Conn's "RTI report includes controversial EHR requirement":

Great article, but it misses the vital issue that resonates throughout the original RTI report. As I commented in January (and I received no reply to my comments), the RTI report identifies a number of flawed design elements that EHR vendors have elected to incorporate into their processes for entering data into the patient record. RTI specifically identifies that the use of defaults, pre-loaded generic templates and "copy and paste" information from previous visits or other patients "could be subject to fraud or abuse."

The Data Entry Revolution

Remember the old days? Forms shipped off to service bureaus? Is it possible that manual data entry will seem as quaint within a few years?

Manual data entry, of course, won’t completely go away. But the volume of work that must be done that way, in particular in the preparation of tax returns, will diminish substantially and it’s not going to take very long.

Data entry is a top cause of medication errors

Computerized prescribing systems might cut the quantity and severity of medication mistakes, but they can't eliminate them entirely, said patient safety experts who reviewed the U.S. Pharmacopeia's 5th annual study of medication error reports.

The study of the more than 235,000 error reports submitted in 2003 by 570 health care facilities was the largest ever by USP. And as the number of reported errors goes up, the percentage that causes patient harm has gone down. But the findings that generated the most discussion are those indicating that electronic prescribing is creating new types of errors.

New word processing features shine, but still some room for improvement

Apple’s new Pages ’08 is a very good word processing and page layout program with dozens of new features and enhancements that make the program easier to use and which are likely to make Pages the only word processing and page layout program most people will ever need. But, it is still missing key features—such as a good mail-merge tool—and has one bug that may prevent you from taking the Pages plunge.

Commentary: Beyond data processing

Analysis contributes to better management

Before 1999, most agencies that are required to comply with the Chief Financial Officers Act received less than unqualified opinions on their annual financial statement audits. Furthermore, most took more than three months to produce those “less-than-pristine” financial statements.

Fast forward to 2006, when 19 of 24 CFO Act agencies received clean opinions on their statements and all produced their statements within 45 days after the end of the fiscal year.

Perhaps we should close the government and have a huge block party to celebrate. I think not.

Automatic Data Processing Rises on Fiscal 2008 Forecast, Analyst Upbeat on Long-Term Value

Shares of Automatic Data Processing Inc. climbed Tuesday, after the payroll and tax filing processor forecast fiscal 2008 profit and sales growth on the heels of fiscal fourth-quarter results that topped Wall Street expectations.

The stock rose $1.06, or 2.3 percent, to $47.13 in afternoon trading.

Separately, ADP reported a lower fiscal fourth-quarter profit, as results a year ago were helped by a large gain from the sale of its claims services group.

Sales in the quarter rose 13 percent to top Wall Street expectations, as revenue at ADP's employer services segment — the company's largest unit — rose 12 percent.

Baird analyst Mark Marcon said ADP has many solid long-term growth prospects, including tapping international markets and acquisitions, which have been a "top priority" for ADP.

"Given the large cash balance, ADP maintains significant flexibility for strategic acquisitions and share buybacks," Marcon wrote in a client note.

Marcon said ADP is capable of reporting earnings per share growth between 10 percent and 15 percent over the next five to 10 years, provided strong organic revenue growth continues.

Chief Financial Officer Chris Reedy said growth prospects remain strong in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in China, where ADP has inked contracts with BMW and Mercedes Benz.

"We're seeing dynamic growth coming out of China," Reedy said.

Looking at the fiscal fourth quarter, Chief Executive Gary Butler said results were helped by new client contracts, organic revenue growth and improvement in margins. Butler also said the company still has $1.9 billion in cash on its balance sheet and expects share buybacks to continue.

Data Entry Pro is a simple program that anyone can use, even kids in their teens are at home using this process to make some extra party cash. It is easy and you stand to make a fortune if you know what you are doing. And the good news is that it is easy to figure it out, unlike some of the other work from home offers this one really does happen to make sense. And from what I can tell it does not seem to be one of those that are all about getting your money.

With Data Entry Pro you may not make a million dollars in a week but you can certainly work your way up to making a comfortable living and perhaps even more than that if you play your cards right.

But what you have to understand is that when you are making money with Data Entry Pro you are not necessarily getting paid by them. What they do is help you to find the best companies that you can work for. You will write ads basically and when they sell a product through your work you will get a nice little chunk of that money. You can then use it for anything at all from food to new clothes to that new big screen TV you have been lusting after. Just like any other paycheck once the money is yours it is yours.

There is nothing too complicated about Data Entry Pro but they could state things a little more clearly if they wanted to. Some people are very surprised at what the program really is once they join but those that actually do it have been more than happy with the end result. I have been making money with them for a while now and things are steadily picking up at a very satisfying pace. I like it, it is easy and I can sit at home and do it while I am in front of the TV. I don't have to deal with the daily commute. I always hated the commute all those cars, I was so tired each morning and the price of gas! Oh my! I save a ton on gas alone now because I can do all my work right here from home, it is great. I don't even have to get dressed in the mornings.

For some time now Data Entry Pro has been helping people to stay home with their families and make some good solid cash money and that is a wonderful thing. Everyone needs to be able to do something they like right, something that they can handle and that doesn't send their stress levels through the roof. While Data Entry Pro may not be for everyone there are a lot of people who have benefited and many more who will if they sign up. All I know is it works for me and I will keep working with this program for as long as I am making money!

Guide to Data Entry Home Business

In May 2004, a survey conducted by the US Labor Department showed that 20.7 million Americans, 16 years old and older, did some type of home-based work as part of their primary means of living. A significant portion of that, about 2 million, offered professional business services, which include data entry. More and more people are taking that bold step to strike a balance between family and work. The most common solution: data entry home business. Read this article to know all about it.

Right smack in the middle of the Information Age, data entry home businesses to make money from home have been on the rise since 2001. Companies need to handle enormous amount of information on a daily basis, thus the need for data entry personnel to process them. If left untouched, corporations will need to contend with massive paperwork that tend to take up valuable office space. They may also lose data, information, and revenue in the process. By staying abreast with all the data and keeping their records organized, businesses resort to the data entry industry to augment their labor and ensure continuation of their businesses.

The main equipment used in the Information Age is a computer. That box which churns out words and numbers faster than you can imagine. If you have one at your home, then you are already riding the wave to make money from home. However, having one is not the key to being successful at data entry home business. You must be an EXPERT at using it. Ensure proper training and practice especially on word processors and spreadsheet applications as well as audio processing software used in transcription.

Work of data entry varies from simple name and address entry into a list or database to more challenging work as medical transcription. One thing is common in all of them: All can be done at home.

Data entry inputers or keyers create lists of information like numbers, names, addresses and the like. The data is keyed into forms that show up on the computer screen. They are also tasked to edit existing information or spot errors in existing entries, like proofreading.

Word processing involves preparing letters, professional reports, etc. Most companies provide templates or standard formats for all documents that will be processed, so that makes the work easier. For more experienced data entry processors, they can handle more complicated work like spreadsheets, statistical tables, legal transcriptions and medical transcriptions.

The Fulfillment Doctor... The Art Of Data Conversion

Q: We are in the process of planning our file conversion as we implement our new catalog management system. Our vendor is telling us that they normally don't write a file conversion program for most files. What's your recommendation?

A: Today's comprehensive order management system performs integrated functionality for order entry, customer service, order processing, warehousing, marketing and merchandising.

There are literally hundreds of tables and files in these systems that have to be converted or built from scratch manually. These range from promotional tables, shipping tables to the more complex customer files, item masters and purchase order files.

For smaller businesses, the better approach is to minimize the automated file conversion. For larger companies (meaning tens of thousands of customers and products) it will be a blend of build manually and program file conversation.

The reasons are:

*Converting years of history often result in many file integrity problems because the data is not consistent over long periods of time. Needless to say it takes many more passes through the data and it may still not be totally corrected;

*Conversion programs take time to write and test. Many of the new systems files and tables can be set up faster manually than writing programs and converting files;

*Setting up files has also proven to be a good way of training departmental users in what the new system will require in terms of maintenance. It gives you familiarity with the new system at a detail level. If you attempted to convert all files the users will never understand early what the system requires.

For larger businesses, it may be more compelling to look at automating a larger share of the file conversion. But we would still advise that this should not be taken to extreme.

Some Guidelines:

*Most companies under estimate the time required to develop specs, program and test file conversion and using copies of subsets of the live file in training.

*Don't try to machine convert too much data - too many years back. How much history do you need to convert?

*Look at using your marketing service bureau to be a source of hygiened customer data. Get them involved with the file conversion early to see how they can assist you. If you use them, you'll end up sending them the files once the conversion programs are tested, several days before the "go live". This will assure that you'll have an update, hygiene customer data file. Merge/purge to eliminate duplicates just before the conversion. Address correction and NCOA would be performed.

*Take into account the data file problems that multiple years of data may have. System created problems, changes in coding of transactions or tables, etc.

*Consider the amount of time required to make the file conversion during "go live". Obviously, you don't test with the live data file. Initially test with a copy of selected records from the files. Selected records which are illustrations of as many conditions as you can identify. Then, do a conversion volume test to see how long the actual file conversion will take. This is especially crucial with large files (e.g. customers and item master) being loaded to a relational data base.

*Schedule sufficient time to humanly review data. Can't look at every record but you need to sample the converted file sufficiently to know the file conversion programs are working correctly. The user departments should all be involved in reviewing samples in the files they use. If you only review a few accounts you are taking a high risk.

*Plan out the final days of the conversion. There will be the need to begin the file conversion a few days in advance of the "go live" date. Most businesses can not shut down the business during the file conversion, so you need to figure out how to update the key files during the "go live". How will you continue to process new customer orders and returns, add new products, etc.? Need to go back and update the files during the "go live".

*Can you keep your old system operational for some period of time to answer inquiries and compare records? Remember a very high percentage of inquiries and complaints happen in the first 90 to 120 days after the sale or return and then inquiries drop off quickly Does all customer data need to be on the new system back 10 years? But for the for marketing purposes we don't want to lose customer purchase activity and promotional history.

File Build Versus Convert

In our consulting practice we look at each company's file conversion and its file data objectively. But here are some generalizations about the types of files and whether should be built manually versus converted.

These are the files that are typically file converted with programs customer files, item masters, customer order and return history, inventory files, purchase orders, subset of item master for WMS system, item locations, etc.

The majority of files and tables are set up manually by user departments. These include promotions, source codes, sales tax, shipping & handling, files which govern business rules (system control values which determine the functions of the system), open orders (keying the data gives you experience with order entry and all the order coding), general ledger chart of accounts, merchandise hierarchy ( div, dept, class, ) and employee files.

Types of files could go either way - build or convert - accounts receivables.

There are some types of files - like the historical promotions - that aren't converted. The results may be sent to a data warehouse, spreadsheet or marketing data base.


Get with user management and get an early start on planning the conversion. Realistically, consider what it will take to convert files by program versus building them manually and giving the user departments more experience with the new system's maintenance.

Outsourcing Data Entry: The Outsourcing Success Story

Although a company's data entry work is often among the most monotonous jobs imaginable, they require the skills of trained personnel. For all its tedium, data entry is essential to a company's survival, without being one of its core operations, and many companies have turned to outsourcing data entry work so that its employees can spend their time on more lucrative matters. The data entry tasks will be performed by competent contractors in developing nations like India, Malaysia, China, and Brazil, and for a much lower cost than it would require if it continued to be done in-house.

How Outsourcing Data Entry Works

Companies have been outsourcing data entry work almost as long as the global technological development has supported outsourcing. The outsourcing of data entry work requires a company to either mail hard copies of its data forms, or scan and email or fax, electronic images of them, to the outsource contractors who will complete the data entry job.

The data entry workers then input information into a database on a computer, and either store it on a magnetic medium for shipping or email it back to the sending company in encrypted form.

Because data entry jobs do not require and advanced degree of computer savvy, outsourcing data entry work is far less difficult than outsourcing more complex processes. Data entry work does not demand an ongoing communication between the outsourcing company and the data entry provider, and the outsourcing of data entry work to date entry firms in underdeveloped nations has for the most part been one of the big outsourcing success stories.

Freelance Data Entry Outsourcing

The Internet, of course, has played a huge part in the increase of data entry workers, in particular in poorer countries, who freelance their services. A simple Internet search will bring up dozens of sites shopping the services of data entry coders who work for what would be considered starvation wages in Europe or the US.

These data entry workers normally price their services according to both the sizes of the requested projects, and their own work histories. Outsourcing data entry work to these coders is usually a matter of posting the specifics of a job, and letting the various coders make bids on it. The going rate for data entry jobs can begin at less than $100, but there is no guarantee that the coder whose bid is accepted will actually complete the job as specified. While most of the reverse auction sites will return the money for an incomplete or substandard effort, the data entry still has not been finished, and business operations may fall behind until it is.

Image processing a booming market

Experts in the field of image processing, such as Siemens, Frost & Sullivan, the German Engineering Federation and people from the German Fraunhofer Allianz, all agree that there are very promising trends towards three- dimensional imaging, texture analysis, high-speed cameras, colour recognition and thermography.

Looking at the not-so-distant horizon, we will see the greatest amount of innovation in data processing, recognition software and optical resolution performance.

Image-processing applications already range from industrial uses and security systems to transport-ation and medical technology. Industry experts, however, agree that only about 20% of all possible applications have been addressed so far. Siemens ‘Pictures of the Future Fall 2006’ stresses that, according to estimates provided by a number of manufacturers, the worldwide market volume for machine vision systems currently amounts to about €6,5-billion, with annual growth rates extending into the double-digit range.
