Reducing data communication error risk for teleprocessing systems
Teleprocessing is the handling of data through a communications channel, such as telephone lines, microwave towers, or artificial satellites. It permits datum to be posted to files in a second location, with the processing results being printed in a third location.
A major problem created by teleprocessing capabilities is the potential devaluation of information assets based on data communication errors affecting information reliability. Consequently, technology owners must evaluate the ability of teleprocessing systems to resist such data corruption to ensure information asset devaluation is minimized and information reliability is maximized.
