We’ve all heard of a computer operating system or “OS”.
The computer OS manages the hardware and software resources of the computer and provides a common language by which each component communicates with each other.
The operating system controls all the processes which are running in the background on the computer. Maybe you've experienced this, but some processes can drain computer resources, slowing the computer down and making it much less efficient.
No new software or component can be installed unless it is compatible with the OS.
An operating system can get corrupted, causing the computer to slow down or even worse, crashes. To fix the problem, the only solution is to reboot and install a new OS.
There are a lot of parallels between a computer and your business.
