Why we endorsed 750,000 laptops project – HP

Celebrated top selling Personal Computer (PC) brand, Hewlett Packard (HP), has explained its endorsement of the 750,000 laptops project promo, initiated by the Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP).

District Manager, Personal Systems Group (PSG), New Africa at HP, Mrs. Chioma Iwuchukwu-Nweke, affirmed that the company was on board for the promo from the beginning.

HP, she stated in a public statement made available to ITRealms Online shared the vision of providing high quality systems at affordable prices to Nigerians.

Mrs. Iwuchukwu-Nweke said that HP was willing at all times to partner with other stakeholders to increase the level of IT penetration in Nigeria because that was the only way of ensuring that Nigerians can quickly enjoy the benefits of the information age.
She said that the campaign which commenced three weeks ago, is meant to break new grounds in cooperation as HP, ACER, Toshiba and Zinox pulled resources together, on a common platform with the active participation of Microsoft, to make the latest Information Technology (IT) products available to Nigerians at affordable prices.

“The 750,000 laptops project for Nigerians seeks to enhance productivity in Nigeria by empowering the workforce. Targeted in the promo are civil servants (Federal, State and Local Governments), staff of organized private sector, staff of military and para-military organizations, students and staff of educational institutions and cooperatives,” she noted.

The promo, she also said, has excited the market in more than one way, given that it resolved the dilemma of how to offer all the credible international brands on a single promo devoid of the heated environment of competition.

Additionally, she pointed out that the result is that there is an array of state of the art laptops and desktops on offer from the best Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the world, thus, “restoring the consumers’ supreme right to choose.”

Further, she said, the OEMs – ACER, HP, Toshiba, and Zinox have all made sacrifices to ensure that the products get to the consumer at exceedingly affordable prices.
“Prices that you cannot get anywhere else,” she said, even as the 750,000 Laptops Project has eliminated the various bottlenecks arising from the documentation process of Computer Ownership Schemes.

The chief executive officer CNP, Mrs. Vivian Abii, emphasized, there are no bank guarantees required to participate in the promo and consumers could just pay in cash or take advantage of the flexible payment terms with interest rates below prevailing bank rates.

She said that consumers equally could make purchases, no matter the quantity as in organizations that want to computerize their workforces, from any CNP or Zinox office nationwide.

While urging the governments, organizations and individuals to seize the opportunity of this promo to computerize their offices, workforce, homes, and school as computer ownership has never been easier before this initiative, stressing that it has always been the passion of the founding fathers of the Computerize Nigeria Project to make PC acquisition easier and affordable.

IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in Chennai For CSE provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript.
