CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of Study

The first wave of agricultural revolution and the second wave of industrial revolution developments in world all over, and now being superceded by a third socio-economic wave, even though the industrial revolution is still in progress in most part of the third world countries.

This new socio-economic shift termed “third wave is the arrival of computer revolution”.

This means that humanity faces a quantum leap forward as we engage in building a remarkable new civilization from ground up.

Adegbony (2000:3) on his emphasizes on computer revolution indicated that the first computer was manufactured at the “Hakiard University in USA in the year 1944 by Charles Babage computer is an advanced technological innovation, which ahs involved as product of our modern day society. He heralded that it would make life easy.

The above statement not withstanding, the public still approach the course with apprehension and in some cases develops absolute fears for the device. The reason being that the computer came upon the world so quickly that it now affects our various lives in so many ways. This coupled with the general lack of knowledge of what computer is, has given rise to the wave of anti-computer feelings.

It is note that Nigerian industries and businesses are growing bigger and more complex everyday. Manual recording and filling system of financial transaction is no longer coping with the rate of sophistication and competition in these modern businesses.

Management needs timely information for planning and it is only through computerized accounting methods and control system that can give out the needed financial data immediately at the close of the banking period.

Banks and other private and commercial institutions are finding it increasingly difficult to carry out its financial data speedily and accurately enough to satisfy their numerous time conscious customers. The volume of service being offered by banks have increased during the years and at the same time the number of people asking for these services has also increased during the last decade.

It has been said that horse riding was replaced by the motor vehicle just because the horse is inefficient from economic point of view.

Also manual operations involving the processing of information on two thousand salaried people. The cost involved in this type of operation is numerous like personnel costs, training cost, benefits, leave allowances, retirement costs etc. Then comes the computer, which will not involve much cost. The only cost might be training of personnel, while the work will be done in a speedily time than manual operation.

Computer has more than immense capacity of solving most of the tedious boredom problems facing accounting system we have in government ministries, government parastata and private business institutions. They store information and make the data more available when needed. They operate with high speed, they are accurate to the points of their activities, and they are reliable, automatic and versatility. Banks therefore saw this as need to go into computerization.

Nevertheless, the advent of computer has some problems. These problems are training of personnel and financial costs. They are very necessary before any bank could go into computerization. Training of personnel is very necessary for the effective running and operations of any computer. The human being is the only thing that can operate a machine like computer, therefore without an effective personnel, the computer cannot be very efficient.

Computer is an intellectual tool, which contributes to output, by increasing effective efficiency, and it is also a tool that is capable of performing pre-determined tasks faster and more accurate.

Statement of Problems

· The problems encountered are:

· The problem of inadequate data and information storage by the banks.

· The problem of time wastage during the course of the banking activities.

· The problem encountered during installation of computerized system.

· Problem encountered in training of personnel.

The Objective of the Research

The purpose of this research is to identify:

· The prospect computerization has put forth on the banking industry.

· Identify the uses to which computer would be put, into so as to maximize efficiency on effectiveness of the bank operation.

· The study would bring into account on over view of computer application to the numerous services being rendered in our banks as an electronic storage facility.

· The study will also identify the various factors hindering the adoption of computer in the business factors.

· This study will bring to light the public misconception about computers and how these misconceptions would be corrected.

Research Questions

· Has computerization of UBA Plc fastened banking services?

· To what extent has computerization increased the volume of deposits?

· Has computerization increased or reduced the efficiency and effectiveness of the bank?

· Has computerization been of help to cost reduction in banking industries?

· What of the workload of UBA Plc has computerization reduced it?

· Is the performance of computer in banking industries move reliable to customers than manual implementation being used before?

· Is computerization of confidential and to point for customers in teams of accounting than the crude system of then accounting?

· Has there been recorded any profit increment in annual statement of account of the banking industries since inception of computer?

Significance of the Study

At the end of this research, we will be able to appreciate the fact that this study will enable to make use of the work in both their academic and research work.

It will also be made clear that various banking industries to day need computers for effective banking operations.

Definition of Terms

Computer

Chambers Universal learners Dictionary, edited by Kire Patrick (2001, 130) defined computer as a large electronic machine capable of storing large amounts of information and of performing calculations”.

The Oxford Advanced learners dictionary 6th edition page 231 that computer is an electronic machine that can store, organize and control other machines”.

Also the American Heritage dictionary of English language defined it as “a device that performs high speed mathematical and logical calculations or that assembles, stores processes or prints information derived from coded data in accordance with a pre-determined program.

This implies that although computer has no brain of its own to reason like human beings, it performs complete mathematical problems as fast as possible even faster than the human brain.

Computerize

It is a process whereby computers employed to carry out certain operations, which might as well have done by man. Such operations are the collection of data, the analyzing of the data and conversion of such information, which could be used in banking and many other relevant fields.

Impact/Prospect

Input

The process of sending data or instructions into the computer.

Output

The presentation of the answer after the processing has been completed it can be in the form of printed reports or printouts.

Offline

A computer system where the branch is not connected directly to the computer center in such a situation, the branch will use diskettes for transmission before report could be produced.

Online

A computer system the branch is limited electronically with computer, center.

Magnetic Tape

This is widely used method of recoding computer data by means of tape. It has three important advantages, which are speed, compactness and readability.
