Computer Applications

Computer Applications Specialist, Computer Applications Training, Information Technology Degrees


A Computer Applications Specialist might also be called a Software Developer, a Software Engineer, or a Computer Consultant for E-Business and E-Commerce clients.  Many businesses have found one of their growing pains over the last ten years or so to be the challenge of Integrating Software Programs that have been installed at different times in different departments. 


A Computer Applications Specialist can help make those programs work together.  Consulting Software Engineers may also suggest that a business take the data from its mix of software and integrate it all into a state of the art Business Software program.


Computer Applications may also run on one Operating System but not another; or may have trouble functioning over a Network.  It’s the job of the Software Engineer to help cure those problems within a business environment.  Of course Software Developers also engage in creating new Computer Applications, testing them and getting them ready for market.
