Software is the programs and applications that we use on our computers to perform specific tasks. With software, we have programmer that will design the applications to perform specific tasks with specific data for customers. This includes software for pharmacies, doctors’ offices and any other type of business you can think of.
When developing software there are some specific components that most applications will have in common. Listed below are some of the more common features of a software application that you may encounter.
Login Security System
With software the first component that people will encounter is a login or a security system. This system is protected by a username and a password. This combination will be presented to a user in the form of a login form. When entering in this information if it doesn’t match then people won’t gain access. This is how programmers crate secure applications.
For most applications user data and information is vital. Names, addresses, phone numbers, email and even patient data are all vital for these systems to work. In fact, they are the core components to these applications’ usefulness. With the login system and the user data we are starting to build a valuable application.
With your applications the data that is collected needs to be located. This can be accomplished by creating a search function. With a search function we are able to enter in information that is found in the data that is collected. So, if you want to look for last names you can do this by using the search function.
Images and charts
Finally, images and charts are also great information to have in an application. Images of scans, identification and more can be stored and retrieved. This visual information is a great way to gain more information about specific customers, clients or whatever data you collected.
There are many components that we haven’t touched on, but these are the basics.
