to enter the data without spending time and money to provide detailed training. The system provides checks and balances that help to prevent data-entry errors and allows the interface users to correct any errors that may occur. Transaction processing also allows for continuous availability. A large organization that processes payroll at various remote locations on a large scale needs a system that will provide reliable resources to the employees manipulating and accessing the data. As changes to the company occur, the transaction processing model allows for expansion without large investments of capital and can easily be updated as technology changes without compromising the accessibility of the data. In short, the system can be modified without shutting down. The transaction processing system also provides information backup procedures and recovery processes that keep information from being lost of the system is compromised by system failure, human error, or other malfunctions. This provides the organization the assurance that their data will remain accessible through almost any calamity.

    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.
