Ethical Computing is instrumental in identifying and reaching a near-ideal solution to the problems arising from an environment that is technology-driven information-intensive. Many of these problems could have been avoided, occur, because we are either insensitive to or ignorant of their ethical implications. As a result, we could reach only a partial, compromised solution at best. An ideal solution is expected to be technically efficient, financially viable and legal admissible, ethically acceptable, socially desirable, and in many situations environmentally-friendly (the so-called hexa-dimension criteria), and balanced in terms the six criteria or five criteria (in case the problem does not involve ecological concerns). An exposition of an ideal solution in terms of the requisite competence and the additive is presented.
