Some DBMS examples include MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft Access, SQL Server, FileMaker, Oracle, RDBMS,dBASE, Clipper and FoxPro. A database application is a set of one or more computer programs that serves as an intermediary between the user and DBMS. This application can read or modify the database by sending SQL statements to the DBMS. It also presents the data to the user in the format of forms and report. It also can be acquired from the software vendor, and they are also frequently written in-house.
Thousands of these computers were sold or rented and were mainly used for business applications. Figure 1.10 – IBM 1400 Series b. IBM 7094 series: IBM built the 7094 series specifically for handling complicated scientific calculations. They had an increased processing speed for floating point calculations. Instructions were fed using punched cards or magnetic tapes. Figure 1.11 – IBM 7094 Series Third Generation Computers (1964–1975) The characteristics of third generation computers
1. Introduction Computers have been used to solve problem automatically through complex programs to assist a user. Computational linguistics, also known as natural language processing (NLP), is a field that specializes in computer science and linguistics that deals with the analysis and processing of human languages using computers. NLP has many applications, which includes Automatic Summarization, Machine Translation, Part-of-Speech Tagging (POS), Speech Recognition (ASR), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Information Retrieval (IR). Spell checking is yet another significant application of computational linguistics whose research extends back to the early seventies when Ralph Gorin built the first spell checker.
PL/SQL is a combination of SQL along with the procedural features of programming languages.The PL/SQL programming language was developed by Oracle Corporation as procedural extension language for SQL and the Oracle relational database.Some of notable facts about PL/SQL: • PL/SQL is portable, high-performance transaction processing language. • PL/SQL provides a built in interpreted as well as OS independent programing environment. • PL/SQL can directly be called from the command line SQL-Plus interface. • Direct call can be made from external programming language calls to database. • PL/SQL's general syntax is based on that of ADA and Pascal programming language.

Traditionally, as new features were added to the database, more and more responsibility fell on the DBA. With the emergence of the relational database management system (RDBMS), we are now beginning to see a change in the database administrator's role. (Mullins 1995) The design of data access routines in relational database demands extra participation from programmers. The database administrator simply checks the system's optimization choice, because technology is responsible for building access paths to the data. Program design and standard query language (SQL) tools have become essential requirements for the database administrator to do this job.
An Operating System (OS) is an interface between a computer user and computer hardware. An operating system is a software which performs all the basic tasks like file management, memory management, process management, handling input and output, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. Operating systems have evolved through a number of distinct phases or generations and we will describe these successive generations of computers to see what their operating systems were like.The first true digital computer was designed by the English mathematician Charles Babbage (1792–1871). Babbage was trying to build his analytical engine for that he hired a young woman named Ada Lovelace,as the world’s first programmer. The programming
IBM is a Multi-national company as it operates in more than 100 countries worldwide with a work force of 300,000 highly motivated employees.

IBM where the first to invent and offer the products to the public, such as Laser Disks and Floppy Disk invented in 1968 onwards. These are now one of the more commonly used computer components since they where invented. They also helped land the first man on the Moon.
With the example above where two individuals would need to log in before certain financial transactions can take place, it may mean altering the login setup. One recommendation could be to create user accounts for all personnel, despite having diversified access restriction to all personnel, so when fraudulent activity is detected, it can be traced back to each individual. Incorporation of these internal controls could be troublesome for some information systems. For example, if a company wanted to include a new control where an employee has to scan their thumbprint and have an eye scan, before allowing access to authorized financial accounts, it would be hard if an employee wore contacts or eyeglasses. That particular information system may not allow a proper scan with any vision supports and the specific few employees who have authorized access wear contacts.
Luckily, these machines quickly evolved from punch card machines to mainframes and spools of magnetic tape. This led to the introduction of the Structured Query Language (SQL) in the 1970's. During this time, IBM mainframe computers were widely used in business3. The evolut... ... middle of paper ... ...r that reason they hire consultants13.
