Business Intelligence/Introduction – Wikibooks, open books for an open world

The availability of documents in machine-readable form is a basic requirement of the system. Typewriters with paper-tape punching attachments are already used extensively in information processing and communication operations.

If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Just look at the statistics: The American Psychological Association does a survey every year in an attempt to pin down where folks think they stand financially. The most recent survey indicated that a walloping 70 percent of us believe we’re on shaky financial ground. Even more — 75 percent
