Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SYED MOIZ ALI

Com­put­ers have brought a rev­o­lu­tion­ary change in the past cou­ple of decades. They are ev­ery­where now and are be­ing used by ev­ery­one. They are be­ing used in ev­ery field as they pro­vide the fa­cil­ity of stor­ing large data safely which can be eas­ily ac­cessed and man­aged. They play vi­tal role in our daily life owing to fa­cil­i­ties it pro­vides which are beyond our imag­i­na­tion. Their wide ap­pli­ca­tion has made the com­puter ed­u­ca­tion a must. As com­put­ers are be­ing used widely th­ese days, gain­ing com­puter ed­u­ca­tion is the need of time. One should be equipped with the ba­sic knowl­edge of com­put­ers, its op­er­a­tions and ap­pli­ca­tions. Both ba­sic and prac­ti­cal knowl­edge com­pletes the ba­sic com­puter ed­u­ca­tion. Com­put­ers do not act as stor­age or pro­cess­ing de­vices only. They are the big­gest sources of en­ter­tain­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tion as well. One can get con­nected to another in other part of world in no time with the help of com­put­ers. It helps in search­ing and re­triev­ing vast in­for­ma­tion over in­ter­net also and only com­puter ed­u­ca­tion can in­crease the ap­pli­ca­tions of com­puter across the world.

Those cou­pled with com­puter knowl­edge, may be net­work­ing, pro­gram­ming or any other, are al­ways pre­ferred over oth­ers and even­tu­ally get the bet­ter job op­por­tu­ni­ties, as in mod­ern world no business op­er­ates with­out com­put­ers. So com­puter ed­u­ca­tion is ex­tremely im­por­tant now, as it is an el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­rion for get­ting re­cruited. Get­ting ac­quainted with com­puter ed­u­ca­tion makes business easy as var­i­ous business trans­ac­tions can be made fast and safe. Also all the business records and doc­u­ments can be stored in com­puter thus re­duc­ing the need of pa­per doc­u­men­ta­tion. One can shop be­ing im­mo­bile as or­ders can be placed on in­ter­net which saves time and trans­porta­tion cost.

Var­i­ous data­base man­age­ment soft­wares are avail­able in mar­ket which man­age large amount of data as per re­quire­ment. Com­put­ers are not used for business pur­poses solely, they are also used for gaming and for me­dia pur­poses all over globe, thus prov­ing its worth as one of the main source of en­ter­tain­ment. Thus we need com­puter lit­er­ate peo­ple in or­der to keep pace with time and so­ci­ety. This is in­for­ma­tion age and com­put­ers and com­puter ed­u­ca­tion are must to rise and achieve suc­cess. —Karachi|
