Q) What is Client/Server?
A) In short, client/Server is a term used to describe computational architecture involving client processes requesting information from server processes.

The term Client/Server was first used in the 1980's to describe client machines accessing data from a server. Later, the client server architecture grew in acceptance as a modular infrastructure aimed at improving the usability, flexability and scalability of software systems.

Software systems using a client/server architecture should reduce the network traffic (by only sending the required information to the clients) as well as provide a more stable, durable software package as a whole.

Q) What is Activity Based Costing?
A) Activity Based Costing (ABC) is the concept of measuring the cost and performance of the organization that is based on the activities which are used in producing its outputs.

ABC differs from traditional cost accounting techniques in that it accounts for all "fixed" and direct costs as variables, without allocating costs based upon a customer's unit volume, total days in production or percentage of indirect costs.
