From Editor-in-Chief

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarokatuh.

Best wishes to all the members of the Editorial Board, Reviewers Panel, Authors, and Readers of PIKSEL for a very happy, and stay healthy in this COVID-19 pandemic disaster. 

The world is facing many issues, e.g. disasters, climate change, flooding, etc., that needs support from many disciplines. Information technology and computer science are no exception. Therefore, this issue focuses on smart tools, online systems, and new computation methods for supporting business in the digital era, to face global problems. The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is discussed in this journal regarding its effectiveness in a case study. The online system, nowadays, is a kind of emerging system, especially in a disruptive era. To support the business, some computation methods, both hardware, and software are discussed, i.e. the parallel computation and the soft computing methods in analyzing the student performance in regard to the study period, a proposed smart tool for daily equipment, and the system for protecting the web. Finally, the research on the COVID-19 spread pattern using Support Vector Regression is also included in this issue.

I would like to thank Universitas Islam 45 Bekasi for supporting the journal publishing, Open Journal System (OJS), and others who have participated in this issue.

With this once again I wish for the peaceful world which is still struggling against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Best Regards,

Rahmadya Trias Handayanto, Ph.D.
