There are several benefits to using business mobility. The first benefit is that it can enhance mobility. It allows activities online can be performed anywhere when they were once lied to a physical location. The second benefit is that it provides access to data immediately, which can add value. The third benefit is that it increases the mobility capacity and the location. A person is going to have the ability to monitor and locate their assets. Therefore, a person will be able to reduce the amount of losses that they could have from theft. (Baltzan, 2012).
The fourth benefit is that it improves work flow. The fifth benefit is that it provides mobile business opportunities. Mobile business offers the benefit of a person being able to make a purchase over the Internet. The sixth benefit is that it provides an alternative to wiring. This means that physical constraints or convenience of wired solutions are no longer going to be costly or impractical (Baltzan, 2012).
There are also some challenges of business mobility. The first challenge is protecting against theft. No matter how big or small the mobile device is, it is going to be vulnerable to loss at some point. The second challenge is protecting wireless connections. Wi-Fi connections need to enforce data encryption. The third challenge is preventing viruses or mobile devices. Mobile devices need to be protected because they are not immune to viruses. The fourth challenge is addressing privacy concerns with RFID and LBS (Baltzan, 2012).
The types of mobile business applications that I have personal experience with is when a variety of different apps on my phone. One of the most used commonly used mobile business applications is the calendar. I use the calendar on a regular basis to keep up with all of the events that I might have going on in a month. Therefore, I have no chance of missing any important business appointments. A negative experience that I have had with mobile business applications is when the calendar does not work correctly so I end up missing an appointment that I should have been at.
The Oracle Company uses several different databases. The first database is the Enterprise Edition. This is the most expensive database system so it was a lot less restrictions on it. The second and third database is the Standard Edition and Standard Edition One. These databases are constrained by licensing restrictions so it is going to have a lower price on them. The fourth database is the Personal Edition. There is also a free database called the Express Edition. I do not feel like there needs to be any changes in the networking technologies that the Oracle Company is currently using (Oracle, 2014).
It is very important to make sure that your home wireless network is very secure. When setting up a wireless network, security is an issue that needs to be very carefully considered. Therefore, a person should remember that they have control over the information that is shared over the wireless network. Most people are going to use some type of WiFi to connect to the Internet in their home. The best way to look at the wireless network when it comes to making it secure is to think of it like the front door of the home. This means that you want a strong lock on the wireless network to make sure that your online information is safe and secure at all times.
There are five main steps that a person can do to ensure that their wireless network is secure. The first step is to make that that you set up a secure password on your default router. This means that you will need to change the password that came with the router. The second step is to change the default SSID and disable the SSID broadcast. The third step is to change the settings of the IP address. Most of the time, a manufacturer of a router is going to set up the router with an IP address so this will need to be changed immediately. The fourth step is to use encryption when you are setting up your router. The fifth step is to use the MAC address filter to make it unique (Malik, 2006).
Social Impact on Society
Securing a wireless network can have a major social impact on society. This is because when a person has a more secure wireless network, then that person is not going to have to worry as much about their identity being taken. Many social networks have a lot of different security issues that people will need to be aware of when they are using a computer especially a computer that does not belong to them.
Social Impact on Business
It is very important that a business makes sure that they have a secure wireless network. A business is never going to want any of their personal or financial information to be shared with other people. An unsecured wireless network could lead to a lot of problems for the business that the business might not be able to recover from.
There are several things that a person is going to need to think about when it comes to securing their home wireless network. This is because when a person lives in an apartment, dorm, and house since the neighbors can get access to your wireless network. The first thing that a person needs to think about is that when a neighbor is using your wireless network is that it is going to slow down the performance of your Internet connection. The second thing is that you have the potential of other people being able to view some of the files that you have on your computer. Therefore, the chance of the spread of dangerous software like viruses could happen to your computer.
The third thing is that there is a huge possibility of other people being able to monitor the websites that you look at on a daily basis. People can also read your emails and instant messages that you receive through your wireless network. This allows people to get access to your usernames and passwords for your accounts. The fourth thing is that people will have the ability to send scams through your computer. This means that these people could also perform illegal activities through the Internet connection if it is not properly secured (Baltzan, 2012).
It is very important that you make sure that your wireless network is secure just like you would when you lock the doors of your home. All of the steps that I discussed in the abstract is the best way that you will going to be able to make sure that you have a secure wireless network. This process is very easy to do so every person needs to take these steps accordingly. Even though these steps are not going to prevent every person from hacking into your wireless network, it can keep people from slowing down your internet connection or having your privacy invaded.
