Computer Software, or just Software, is any set of machine-readable instructions that directs a computer's processor to perform specific operations. It is inclusive of both machine instructions (the binary code that the processor understands) and source code

An Operating System (OS) is a collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs. The operating system is an essential component of the system software in a computer system. Application programs usually require an operating system to function.
In Software Development, design is a phase of software life cycle. It is based on the requirements specification produced by the analysis of the requirements (analysis phase), the design defines how these requirements will be met, the structure that must be given to the software system to become a reality.
The Process of Creating Software can become very complex, depending on its size, characteristics and criticality. Process is defined as the set of steps to follow to arrive at the solution of a problem or obtaining a product, in this particular case, to achieve a software product that solves a specific problem.
A Computer Program is a set of instructions that once executed will perform one or more tasks on a computer. Without programs, these machines can not work. The general set of programs is called software, which more generally refers to the logical equipment or software of a digital computer.
In Programming and algorithm design, the Structured Design aims to elaborate algorithms that comply with the modularity property, for this, given a problem that is intended to solve by the elaboration of a computer program, it is sought to divide said program into modules according to the principles of Design of Decomposition by successive refinements, creation of a modular Hierarchy and elaboration of Independent modules.
C is a General-Purpose Programming Language designed to provide constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions, and therefore it has found lasting use in applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language, most notably system software like the Unix computer operating system.
C++ is a General Purpose Programming Language that is free-form and compiled. It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises both high-level and low-level language features. It provides imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features.
Java is a Computer Programming Language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "Write Once, Run Anywhere" (WORA), meaning that code that runs on one platform does not need to be recompiled to run on another.
OpenID is an open standard that allows users to be authenticated by certain co-operating sites (known as Relying Parties or RP) using a third party service, eliminating the need for webmasters to provide their own ad hoc systems and allowing users to consolidate their digital identities.
A Computer Virus is a type of Malicious Software Program (Malware) that, when executed, replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code. Infected computer programs can include, as well, data files, or the "boot" sector of the hard drive. When this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then said to be "infected" with a computer virus.
Installed antivirus solutions, running on individual computers, although the most used, is only one method of guarding against Malware and Computer Viruses. However, other alternative solutions are also used, including: Unified Threat Management (UTM), hardware and network firewalls, Cloud-based antivirus and on-line scanners.
Cloud Computing exhibits the following key Characteristics:
Agility improves with users' ability to re-provision technological infrastructure resources.
Application programming interface (API) accessibility to software that enables machines to interact with cloud software in the same way that a traditional user interface
Legacy management infrastructures, which are based on the concept of dedicated system relationships and architecture constructs, are not well suited to cloud environments where instances are continually launched and decommissioned. Instead, the dynamic nature of cloud computing requires monitoring and management tools that are adaptable, extensible and customizable.
