Advantages of electronic data processing?
Electronic Data Processing (EDP)
can refer to the use of automated methods to process commercial data. Typically, this uses relatively simple, repetitive activities to process large volumes of similar information. For example: stock updates applied to an inventory, banking transactions applied to account and customer master files, booking and ticketing transactions to an airline's reservation system, billing for utility services.
it operates the speed of electric flow which is measured in billions and trillionth of a second. It is faster than any other machine designed to do similar works.
High speed processing by computer is accompanied by high accuracy results the electronic circuitry of computer is such that, when the machine are programmed correctly and when incoming data is error free, the accuracy of the output is relatively assured.
An electronic computer can carry out sequence of many data processing operations without human interaction, the various operations are executed by way of a stored computer program
4. Decision making capability
A computer can perform certain decision instruction automatically
5. Compact storage
Electronic data processing system have the ability to store large amounts of data in compact and easily retrievable form
to solve problem-with computer you must, first understand the
problem, second, program the computer to give you right answers.
Understand a problem is one thing but understanding it to the depth
of detail and insight required to program the computer is a
completely different matter
6. Discipline imposes
THATS ALL.. HAHAHAHAHA.. firstname.lastname@example.org

Manaul data processing could make mistakes, whereas electronic data processing will have a 1% chance to make a mistake. and example for this would be: on a spreadsheet you have 1000 employees, each with different wages because of different roles, and you need to calculate a grand total. which type of processing is going to be faster and more accurate? electronic data processing of course.
What are the advancetages and disadvantages of electronic data processing and manual data processing?
