Various devices will be working together to form the “computer,” which you will use in your work. The main components of a computer are the CPU, the display, the input devices (keyboard and mouse), and the output device (monitor). Peripherals are any additional bits of hardware that aren’t central to the system. All of us process data, or run into data processing, in the life of our daily lives. Information processing is shown through the creation of a student’s final grade report based on their performance on tests and typical data. Keep in mind that the quality of your data and the quality of the transformation process that you put them through will determine the quality of your information. Wrong conclusions might be drawn from meaningless data or processing. Accordingly, the computer returns data that are in line with the information you provide it and the way you process it.
