Improving business processes through info systems… The article below from the Arizona Republic is concerning the Internal Revenue Service which is the US federal government agency that collects taxes and enforces the related laws. They implemented two new computer systems that were supposed to help speed up and improve access by employees to taxpayer account data. The problem that has risen out of these new technologies is that there are security issues and the tax payers are paying billions for a system that is inept. CADE, one of the systems was supposed to speed up a process and in turn it is leaving taxpayer information vulnerable and some information can be modified or deleted without detection leaving it virtually impossible to track perpetrators. Although the article did not give specific measurements of improvements, it sounds like their should have been more time and effort put into researching the programs and substitutes before making a decision that has serious potential for information leaks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
