    • Contents1 What is software & Hardware?2 Types of Software Types of Hardware3 Conclusion4
    • WHAT IS SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE ? Computer Instructions or data, anything that can be stored electronically is Software. Hardware is one that is tangible. The storage devices (Hard disk, CD’s etc.,), mouse, keyboard CPU and display devices (Monitor) are Hardware. FOR EXAMPLE: SOFTWARE – MSOFFICE HARDWARE – NETWORK SERVER

    • Types of software Application SoftwareSystemsoftware Open source Software Proprietary Software
    • DiagramSystem software is a term referring to anycomputer software which manages and controlsthe hardware so that application software canperform a task.Application Software includes programs that doreal work for user.Open source software (OSS) is computer softwarewhose source code is available under a license thatpermits users to use, change, and improve the software,and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified form. Proprietary software (also called non-freesoftware) is software with restrictions on using,copying and modifying as enforced by theproprietor.
    • WHAT ELSE IS THERE? Programming Languages:• Machine Language • Consists of the 0s and 1s of binary code• High Level Languages • Must be ‘complied’ (translated to machine language) • e.g. - COBOL, C++, Visual BASIC• Programming tools designed to support the Web • HTML, XML – page formatting tools • Java - Platform-independent programming language • .NET - Microsoft business strategy aimed at convergence of personal computing and the Web
    • TYPES OF HARDWARE Power supplyMotherboard Processor Cabinet
    • TYPES OF HARDWARE RAM STORAGE DEVICE What Else is CD- ROM There? KEY BOARD & MOUSE MONITOR
    • RAM OR RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY Holds instructions for processing data, processed data, and raw data. Ram is measured by:  Capacity (in Megabytes or Gigabytes)  Speed (in Nanoseconds)
    • STORAGE DEVICE Electronic devices that store, retrieve, and save instructions and data. Today’s microcomputers or PCs include several types of storage devices. Capacity and speed are important considerations when selecting a new storage device for a PC.
    • HARD DISK Capacity is measured in gigabytes (GB or billions of bytes). Typically permanently installed. Used to store operating system, application software, utilities and data. Magnetic storage device
    • FLOPPY DISK DRIVES Capacity is 1.44 to 2.0 megabytes (MB or millions of bytes).  Storage device with the smallest capacity  Most portable storage media Magnetic storage device
    • CD- ROM DRIVES Typically installed on all new computer systems. (Were add-on device until the mid 1990’s). Capacity is 600 to 750 megabytes (MB or millions of bytes). Most mass-produced commercial software is packaged on a CD.
    • KEYBOARD & MOUSE Input devices gather and translate data into a form the computer understands. Primary input device:  Keyboard - Most common input device; used to type in commands and data.  Mouse or trackball enhances user’s ability to input commands, manipulate text, images.  Joystick useful in education as an adaptive or assistive input device.
    • Diagram
    • OUTPUT DEVICE Monitors are the most commonly used output device. Monitors are connected to a computer system via a port integrated on the video adapter or graphics card.
