Project Report from the year 2010 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,0, Queensland University of Technology, course: Data Mining, language: English, abstract: '. . . Knowledge Discovery is the most desirable end-product of computing. Finding new phenomena or enhancing our knowledge about them has a greater long-range value than optimizing production processes or inventories, and is second only to task that preserve our world and our environment. It is not surprising that it is also one of the most difficult computing challenges to do well . . .' (Wiederhold, 1996). The main objective of knowledge discovery in Data Mining lies in the finding of data patterns. The knowledge about the current customers can be used to predict profitable customers based on their personal information. This explorative report focuses on analysing different methods of data mining to predict profitable customers of a dating site. The second key aspect is to match individual customers based on their personal information.The dataset analysed is derived from the customer database of Australia's largest dating site with over 1.9 million members. The dataset contains static activity and dynamic activity. Static activity includes all personal, demographic and interest information entered by the customer at its registration.

Document from the year 2016 in the subject Computer Science - Internet, New Technologies, grade: 100, Harvard University, course: Business, language: English, abstract: This study tries to find insight on how the implementation of big data and security can improve a firm's performance value towards customers. Until now, the stream of data deluging our world has been a trend that only thrilled few data geeks. Currently, the world of data is at the inflection point. A study by McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) asserted that the absolute volume of data stored, generated and gathered for insight has become economically pertinent to both customers and firms.The Big Data and Security can have the ability to transform lives. They are robust comparable to the forces of competitiveness and efficiency of preceding trends in Information Technology investment and advancement. The same prerequisites that facilitated the waves of Information Technology-enabled innovation to power productivity, i.e., technological innovations trailed by embracement of complimentary management novelty, are in place for big data, and big data sophisticated analytics abilities and technology suppliers are expected to have spread impact on efficiency similar to other technologies providers.It has become imperative for firms to take big data and its potentiality to create value. This scenario has been set up as a result of competition and market forces (p. 20). For instance, businesses operating by the adoptio...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: A new discipline that has arisen recently as a hot new topic for management is knowledge management. Not only is management challenged to face the strategic importance for competitive advantage that business consultants promise, but also information professionals who have been engaged in this subject already for quite a long time. This dissertation focuses on a comparison of knowledge management with information management, based on a model that embraces both information and knowledge. Founded on an examination of the unique characteristics of knowledge, the concept of knowledge management is introduced. To stay in synch with the pace of change in their operational and competitive environments organisations require a balance of organisational competencies for knowledge management and change proficiency. This requires a new kind of learning called „double-loop learning” and implies knowledge flows across organisational boundaries. Knowledge Management can be expected to fundamentally change the management perspective on movements such as Total Quality Management and Business Re-engineering, forcing management to basically rethink the theory of processes. Another focus of this dissertation is on the role that technology plays in knowledge management. As information professionals are traditionally concerned with technology it has been considered to look at knowledge management technology in more detail. Technology is one of six key factors facilitating kn...

The service process design landscape is changing, with many of the previous limitations disappearing on how and by whom services are delivered. Opportunities for new service design configurations are being supported, to a large extent, by technology-enabled innovations; many tasks previously performed by the service provider may now be performed by either the customer or the service provider. As a result, customers are playing a more active role in the service process, not only through self-service but also through providing information to the service provider to create a more personalized service experience. Designing Service Processes to Unlock Value explores how service processes can be designed to leverage the expanding range of opportunities for service providers and customers to co-create value. Readers will learn about frameworks for value Co-Creation and models for designing all types of service processes, as well as the unique challenges of designing knowledge-intensive services. The book concludes with approaches to unlock these capabilities-and further boost value Co-Creation. This second edition includes new and updated examples of technology-enabled innovations that provide unprecedented flexibility in service process design and continue to transform how service providers and customers co-produce services. At the same time, readers will see how these innovations can have important-and sometimes surprising-impacts on the nature of the benefit and cost tradeoffs an...

Successfully navigate the changing face of the CIO role Strategic Information Technology offers CIOs a handbook for engaging with the senior management conversations surrounding strategy. The CIO role is currently undergoing a massive transition from technology-focused expert to a more strategic mindset, and this book provides proven methods for taking your seat at the table. Lessons from high-performing CIOs and a wealth of leading-edge insight provide invaluable guidance for positioning technology as a strategic driver across the business, while a focus on building the necessary connections—for example, an alliance between IT and HR—provide a multimodal approach to navigating the transition. The evolution of the CIO’s role involves more than simply technical knowledge; the new CIO must be an influencer, an engager, and just as adept at the soft skills that become increasingly crucial as you climb the management ladder. It’s about changing mindsets, translating hard skills into strategic advantages, and demonstrating IT’s value to the strategic decision making process. This book provides best practices, illustrative examples, and up-to-date perspective for CIOs wanting to: Position IT as a critical driver of overall strategy Build on functional expertise with strategic insight Learn from the stories of successful tech-to-strategy transformations Engage C-Suite peers in shaping the strategic conversation Not long ago, the CIO occupied a unique place in the C-Suite. Executive by title, CIOs have nevertheless been seen as predominantly the “chief tech expert” with little input into strategy, as IT has historically been regarded as a tool rather than a source of competitive advantage. The truth is becoming increasingly apparent, with companies around the world turning to technology in order to gain a competitive edge, and CIOs are beginning to claim their place in strategy discussions. Strategic Information Technology offers much needed guidance for a successful transformation.

Filled with illustrative case studies, the book explores the link between overall strategy and information technology strategy. It discusses organizational capabilities, such as change management, that have an impact on an organization's overall IT effectiveness, and a wide range of IT strategy issues. The book covers emerging trends such as personalized medicine; service-oriented architecture; the ramification of changes in care delivery models, and the IT strategies necessary to support public health. «Health information technology sometimes masquerades as an end in itself. The reality is that IT is a means to an end, an enabler of the strategic goals of health care organizations. This volume reminds us that shaping IT strategy and implementation to an organization's goals is the key to generating both economic returns and safer care for patients. You don't need an engineer to understand how to use IT to advance a health care organization's strategic agenda. You just need to read this book.»– Jeff Goldsmith, PhD, president of Health Futures, Inc. «In this time of health care reform, nothing is more front and center than health IT. This book is an exceptional blueprint for the future, with a focus on the essential measures of success for any system implementation.» – Stephanie Reel, MBA, vice provost for information technology and chief information officer, The Johns Hopkins University «In this book, the authors answer the question that every health care leader should be asking: How do we unlock the promise of health information technology and fundamentally reshape our industry? This is a must-read for every person who wants to improve American health care.» – David Brailer, MD, PhD, chairman of Health Evolution Partners

For the new millennium, knowledge plays a vital role in the progress of business of a particular organization. Stock option plans are considered to be a highly appreciated tool for attracting and retaining top talent by the companies. Such a plan ties together the shareholder and management interests.

In India, practice of granting stock options to employee was started by the information technology companies in late nineties. The present study has been conducted to observe the trend and techniques for presentation of employee stock option related information in the annual reports by the selected companies in India.In addition, the study is attempted to find the loopholes in the existing regulatory framework of employee stock options in India.Overall, the study would help to develop strategies to manage ESOP grants and subsequent reporting of stock option information more proactively.

Essays in Post-Critical Philosophy of Technology

Technology, in all its forms, has had and continues to have an indisputable impact on society and culture. Philosophy of technology seeks to understand this impact and the meaning of technology for society and culture. Although its origins can be traced back to the Greeks, it wasn’t until the late 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century that it gained ground as a philosophical discipline. Now more than ever it is considered an essential philosophical enterprise. ‘The Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology’ was a lively and successful event that sort to discuss, reflect on and apply this branch of philosophical inquiry to both historical and contemporary examples. Importantly, the contributors’ methodological approaches were influenced by, although not limited to, Michael Polanyi’s term ‘post-critical’. Moving beyond the rigidity of past approaches, the selected essays were driven by two lines of inquiry, what has been the historical role of technology in social and scientific change? And, how can a ‘post-critical’ approach enhance and extend our understanding of philosophy of technology?This edited volume begins by exploring the role of technology in social and scientific developments from a historical perspective, before moving towards a discussion of philosophy of technology from a ‘Post-Critical’ epistemic stance. Free from the constraints of previous methodologies, the third part of this work engages with the term ‘Post-Critical’ in its broadest sense. Th...

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Pedagogy - Media Pedagogy, grade: K-12, University of Cape Coast (Centre for Continuing Education), course: Information Technology in Social Studies, language: English, abstract: ABSTRACTTechnology has become an imperative tool in teaching and learning, offering a constructive dimension to education. Its usage cuts across all disciplines and social studies is not an exception. In view of this, using a descriptive research design, this study investigated social studies teachers' perception of technology integration, their use of technology as well as the impact of technology integration training on their instructional practice in the senior high schools of the Cape Coast Metropolis. Data were collected through the use of a questionnaire from a purposive sample of 50 social studies teachers who have completed some form of technology integration training whether formal or informal.Participants ranged in age from 21 to 60, and had an average of 11 years of teaching experience. Social studies teachers in this study generally had a positive perception towards technology integration and the unparallel importance it brings to bare in the social studies classroom. However, they did not have the requisite competencies that will cushion their desire to tailor their instruction around technology, even though they have had some form of integration training. Since they lacked the requisite expertise in technology integration, they h...

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: A, University of Huddersfield, course: Revenue Management, language: English, abstract: Customers today are in a fast advancing world and are nowadays considered to be hotel's biggest asset. As without a demand there is no sense in running a hotel. Customers play a huge role in today's hotel industry, as hotels earn revenue from customers, hence they should be the focus to provide consistency with regards to business, and making them assets to the hotel. But by just making them assets to the hotel, it is not good enough for this ever changing industry and with the advent of technology the value of customers increase as it would also be easier to establish their current worth and plan for the future. Hence hotels would have to look beyond their customer's money, with a view of customers as a measure of their overall performance apart from their physical assets. This performance indicator namely REVPAC (Revenue per available customer) could be used to analyze the hotels revenue per customer with regards to its status in a market share and customer capitalization.The focus and importance of customers is therefore becoming a glaring significance in the hotel industry. Hotels with efficient customer relationship management systems are able to breach all sorts of customer related problems. With the ever increasing demand for rooms in India, the need to satisfy the customers with what is ava...

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, University of Kassel (Research Group Entrepreneurship), language: English, abstract: Independent Venture Capital (IVC) has been paramount in the emergence of the information technology industry in both the United States and Europe. There are relatively few large global information technology companies in Europe. A widening gap is observable in the success rate of IVC backed start-ups between the U.S. and Europe in the information technology industry. This difference could be attributable to the differences in the venture capital financing of start-ups in the U.S., UK, Germany and France. This book deals with "Differences in Venture Capital Financing of U.S., UK, German and French Information Technology Start-ups". The comparative analysis is conducted on a microeconomic level (managerial venture capital research), i.e. on the venture capital firm level. The differences are analyzed for the whole venture capital investment cycle: contact phase, initial screening phase, due diligence phase, deal structuring and negotiation phase, management phase - value adding services, and exit phase. The research framework model examines the following differences in the venture capital investment cycle: average size of investment in the seed stage, average size of investment in the start-up stage, aver-age size of investment in the growth stage, percentage of start-ups in pre...

Examination Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1.7, University of Mannheim (Chair of Business Administration and Information Systems), course: Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, language: English, abstract: In today's global economy Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are credited with their transformative capacity for national economies. They represent a promising way to lead developing countries on a path of more rapid development. But ICT for Development (ICT4D) is not only an issue of the development society. For many multinational operating software companies developing continents like Africa with a population of almost half a billion represent a huge, still untapped market. The German software company SAP AG for example is engaged in the African Drive Project (ADP). ADP is improving the South African education system by means of ICTs. SAP sees its engagement as an investment in future business areas and emerging markets in the developing world. But the corporate engagement of these big international players does not have to contradict the general aims and goals of the development society. On the contrary, the development assistance sees a crucial role in engaging in public private partnerships (PPP). The OECD notes that PPPs have become a general trend throughout the global economy. Convergence and consolidation of the fast moving ICT market demand that not one organiz...

A comprehensive exploration of technology's role in adult learning Technology and Innovation in Adult Learning introduces educators and students to the intersection of adult learning and the growing technological revolution. Written by an internationally recognized expert in the field, this book explores the theory, research, and practice driving innovation in both adult learning and learning technology, and illuminates a powerful approach to recognize and leverage these opportunities. Building on current trends and research in technology and its use, each chapter illustrates the need, opportunities, and examples of current and future technologies that scaffold adult learning, and provides comprehensive coverage of both current and emerging challenges. Many adult learning faculty, practitioners, and students realize that technology presents a growing and ever-present set of issues, yet few feel confident in identifying the opportunities that arise with each step forward. This book clarifies the interplay between adult learning and learning technology, and characterizes the cyclic exchange of information and opportunities that link these fields now and in the future. Understand the critical issues currently affecting adult learning Learn how technology is presenting both opportunities and challenges for the teaching and learning of adults in different contexts Examine recent research on learning technology for adult learners Discover how technological innovation can be applied now and how it will continue to shape the future of learning Adult learning is on the rise, and there is no mistaking technology's role; whether they're learning with or about technology, today's adult learners come with unique sets of needs and skills that demand specialized approaches. Traditional pedagogical techniques don't transfer directly, and learning technology requires its own unique approach to development and use. Technology and Innovation in Adult Learning equips practitioners to further adult learning and shape the future of the field, while providing a rich perspective for classroom inquiry and research.
