Potential Benefit and implications of the software to the college
In this document I will be explaining the potential benefits and the implications of the software to the college. When the college installs a new piece of software there will be a lot of advantages and disadvantages once the piece of software is installed. The software that has been installed on to the computer in the college will be enabling the college students and the staff to do things that they may not have been able to do or not been able to do as well. But despite the advantage of the software product there are also some disadvantages associated with it.

For example the software program Google Chrome may be used in the college to benefit the students and the teacher by enabling them to browse the internet faster compared to the alternative web browsers.
When installing software products the implication to the college may be making the computers compatible to meet the software needs. The will also need to decide on a software level and if it can be used on the computers current OS (operating system) or even if the programs that are installed conflict with the new software. The college might have to upgrade Hardware components within the computer to make things compatible with each other by make the software function properly. The college may also have to upgrade their OS (operating system) or they may have to delete the older software as this will result in the software functioning to its maximum potential. The college will be able to...
