Computers & eBusiness
Today it is nearly impossible to start
or profit from a business if computers are not used in some
way in that business. If you are an experienced
business owner or executive, this is a fact that is obvious
to you and needs no further explanation.
If your business is of the SERVICE
INDUSTRY, some computer needs are:
Bookkeeping and accounting
information for your customers, clients, accountant (or
yourself), and banking.
Maintaining the most efficient use
of your time.
If your business is of the PRODUCT
INDUSTRY, some computer needs are:
Inventory, Assets, COG (Cost Of
Goods) control and their effect on your Chart Of
Accounts in the most timely way.
If your business involves both of these
industries or either one, you still will need computers for

Hardware- Build It Yourself / Do It Yourself
In today's business climate, Organizations have invested
millions of dollars in I.T.
If the I.T. is too old, unreliable or just
does not work, then, benefits of this investment are not going to be

The initial money used to Build-It-Yourself ( BIY
) or Do-It-Yourself ( DIY ) within the Computer
Technology and Network Technology of I.T., is only a modest
savings. That is because I.T. manufacturing costs, due
to volume buying and Outsourcing expenses, actually may be a
more desired price to what a Small Business can buy BIY
& DIY materials.
Fear not- the 'back end' advantage to BIY/DIY is:
- You are better equipped for what your business truly
needs. Thus, little if any wasted
- You are adding to your own Specialized Knowledge
as you buy and build. Thus, if you should need to
hire I.T. people, get I.T. training in the future, or
Outsource to a Contractor/Sub-Contractor your I.T.
needs, you have a functional knowledge of what you are
doing. Fewer Rip-Offs!
- Usually, the equipment you build will be better than
that which you buy Out-The-Box ( OTB ). That is
because you are not trying to keep a lower resale price
by circumventing some quality somewhere. When you
build it for yourself, you are motivated to get the best
possible quality within your financial means.
- For all of the aforementioned reasons, you will save
money in the near future.
The most obvious downside is the time used to shop
component vendors and assemble the component into the finished
Clear Computer Cases
A simple case in this point
A vendor listed a 250GB USB Hard Drive OTB unit at
$130 each. This is a sealed combination of a Hard
drive and USB External Enclosure, ready use right
Our same vendor listed a 250GB Hard Drive unit at
$80 each (just the drive), and an External Hard Drive USB
Enclosure at $17! These are BIY/DIY components! One
buys these 2 components, combine them and they have the same
functional equipment as the OTB drive but for only
$97. Additionally, the Hard Drive component is a
better drive than the OTB hard drive because it is 7200RPMs
(Rotations Per Minute) and the OTB is only 5400RPMs!
This was not a fictional example, this was the actual
price of a well known vendor, and current during January of
2007. In this example, the BIY/DIY price was
cheaper than the OTB. This is not always the case as

Hardware- Out The Box
The most defensible argument for buying I.T. equipment
ready-to-use right Out-The-Box (OTB) is time
saved. While there are many advantages to BIY/DIY,
this type of buying takes time.
Buying OTB is best done through using either well known Manufacturers
or a trustworthy vendor recommending a brand. When it
comes to OTB, you must be cognizant of the folk saying,
"You get what you pay for"!
If you need to get replacement 'Setup Disks' where do you
go? How do you obtain needed driver downloads?
These questions are seldom answered when you buy that
unbelievably inexpensive computer from that 2-hour 'info-mercial'
on the Television!
You as a Business Owner or Entrepreneur will need the
confidence in your computer that it's Hardware and Software
will remain compatible for a length of time reasonable by
the industry. That is you can easily obtain updated,
drivers and patches when needed.
For computers, this time is approximately three to
six years and is often referred to Philosophically and often
referring to the Software as the
Life Cycle and mechanically may involve what is called the
Mean Time Between Failure (MBT).
The Life Cycle is how long the software is expected to be
of good use and usually covers how long patches, drivers,
application upgrades are freely available to the
owners. The MBT rate is usually an engineer's
calculated average time that a physical component will
operate before it starts to fail.
For an business man buying OTB, wanting quick and simple
solutions, then JJplace reiterates it's suggestion, buy
well-known brands or buy from vendors and merchant that you
trust and you can contact them later if you need to.
