Master's Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, Mid Sweden University, 41 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: During the last decades the environment of most companies has become increasingly dynamic and competitive due to the globalisation and internationalisation of markets. The intense competition leads to reinforced campaigns to win customers with new, unique products or services defending or improving market positions. Consequently, based on the increased variety, customers' expectations are rising while the time to market as well as the duration ot the product life cycle are decreasing. [Cum1997, p. 22] [Jon2002, p. 24, p. 31] [Yuk2002, p. 294] The increased velocity and complexity of global business competition demand innovative, flexible and responsive solutions to emerge. Companies, especially those competing on the global scale, have to consider innovations as a key goal, a powerful influence on organisational performance and a strategy which creates a sustainable competitive advantage against a growing number of new, efficient and focused competitors. [Hal2003, p. 434] [Mum2002, p. 705] 'Innovation is the source of increasing value and differentiation in an evermore crowded and homogeneous marketplace [Jon2002, p. 31].' Innovation is crucial in times of economic growth, remaining the source of increasing revenues and profitability, but more than ever in times of recession representing the survival in an increasingly selective market. [Jon2002, p. 12] However, innovation can be much more than this - it is the impulse of continuous advancement of the humankind. The fact that our world is moving towards the age of total mobility, in which not only all people and organisations are part of a global network, but in which access to information shall be available independently on the place and time, is leading to the increased importance and rapid growth of wireless communications possibilities. Companies within the telecommunications industry are therefore confronted with a fast growing demand for wireless solutions by end-customers and other high-tech industries (e.g. computer industry) to create the portability of a connected world. Hence, telecommunications as the key player within this field is one of the fastest growing and dynamic global businesses. [Bou2001, p. 168] [God2000, p. 1034] [Sun2005, p. 107] [...]

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,0, European Business School - International University Schloss Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Information Systems II), 39 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The world is changing, more than ever before it is not granted, that a once learned job will earn one money in the future, or if it will still exist at all. Employees are frightened that their job will end up in the vortex of global sourcing, as jobs are more and more displaced to low-cost countries as companies strive to safe their costs. This development is part of the globalization, as international trade borders fall and markets open for global competition. It is taking place in a rapid pace and first comprised mostly production jobs, as companies in those low-cost countries where able to produce at much lower costs, as are companies in western economies with high social standards and therefore costs. While at first, it where only easy manufacturing jobs, nowadays even complex products as Notebooks are only manufactured and assembled in low-cost countries, mainly in China. And the trend to higher complexity of international transfers is getting stronger and stronger. Now not only production is moving to those countries, but also white-collar work, complex services, and even the management layer can not count on job security in the long run. The buzz-word offshoring is frightening employees, compa-nies are going bankrupt, if they can not cope with the new global pressure, and whole nations expect offshoring to be their deathblow. Realistic? Maybe, but probably not. Offshoring is a very emotional topic, as the individual has to cope with deep changes in their work life and politicians are not able to find answers for arising questions in political crusted industry nations. But most people and management face nescience and react with a new wave of protectionism, which certainly can not be the answer. And while production has the brake of the physical layer like supply of raw material or transportation of goods, changes in the information technology and information service sector are even more rapid, as informa-tion can be transported without delay through the internet and other telecommunication channels. This not only includes IT work, but also constructional blueprints, scanned receipts, phone calls, and more. The aim of this paper is to give an overview of the opportunities and threats associated with offshoring under special emphasis of the IT component. To get access to the topic, the basic concepts and options will be introduced in the second part of the paper. Later a special look on the implications for western countries which...

UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) is the third generation telecommunications system based on WCDMA. WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is the radio interface for UMTS. WCDMA is characterised by use of a wider band than CDMA. It has additional advantages of high transfer rate, and increased system capacity and communication quality by statistical multiplexing, etc. WCDMA efficiently utilises the radio spectrum to provide a maximum data rate of 2 Mbit/s. UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) will offer a consistent set of services to mobile computer and phone users no matter where they are located in the world. Based on the GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) communication standard, UMTS, endorsed by major standards bodies and manufacturers, is the planned standard for mobile users around the world by 2002. Today's cellular telephone systems are mainly circuit-switched, with connections always dependent on circuit availability. Packet-switched connection, using the Internet Protocol (IP), means that a virtual connection is always available to any other end point in the network. It will also make it possible to provide new services, such as alternative billing methods (pay-per-bit, pay-per-session, flat rate, asymmetric bandwidth, and others). The higher bandwidth of UMTS also promises new services, such as video conferencing and promises to realise the Virtual Home Environment (VHE) in which a roaming user can have the same services to which the user is accustomed when at home or in the office, through a combination of transparent terrestrial and satellite connections. * Provides an introduction to cellular networks and digital communications * Covers the air interface, radio access network and core network * Explains the Release '99 specifications clearly and effectively * Discusses UMTS services and future services beyond 3G * Features numerous problems and solutions in order to aid understanding Ideal for Academics and students on telecommunications, electronics and computer science courses, research and development engineers working in mobile/wireless communications and Cellular operators and technical consultants.

Environmental Remote Sensing from Regional to Global Scales Edited by Giles Foody University College, Swansea, UK & Paul Curran University of Southampton, UK Remote sensing by satellites provides scientists with powerful means of analysing the terrestrial environment in fields as diverse as meteorology, agriculture, town planning or ecology. Allied to the powerful computer-based methodologies of Geographic Information Systems and image processing and cartographic techniques, perhaps its most important aspect is the way Environmental Remote Sensing (ERS) can allow synoptic interpretation of complex geographical phenomena from global to local scales. This book provides a benchmark collection of papers to demonstrate the flexibility and power of ERS techniques in a variety of contexts and scales. To achieve this end, a group of leading specialists have been invited to contribute surveys of the field. A high level of technical expertise is not required, making the book accessible to the research scientist, or student or professional wishing to assess the application of these techniques to his/her own field of study.

Introduction to HPC with MPI for Data Science
54,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This gentle introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) for Data Science using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard has been designed as a first course for undergraduates on parallel programming on distributed memory models, and requires only basic programming notions. Divided into two parts the first part covers high performance computing using C++ with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard followed by a second part providing high-performance data analytics on computer clusters. In the first part, the fundamental notions of blocking versus non-blocking point-to-point communications, global communications (like broadcast or scatter) and collaborative computations (reduce), with Amdalh and Gustafson speed-up laws are described before addressing parallel sorting and parallel linear algebra on computer clusters. The common ring, torus and hypercube topologies of clusters are then explained and global communication procedures on these topologies are studied. This first part closes with the MapReduce (MR) model of computation well-suited to processing big data using the MPI framework. In the second part, the book focuses on high-performance data analytics. Flat and hierarchical clustering algorithms are introduced for data exploration along with how to program these algorithms on computer clusters, followed by machine learning classification, and an introduction to graph analytics. This part closes with a concise introduction to data core-sets that let big data problems be amenable to tiny data problems. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter in order for students to practice the concepts learned, and a final section contains an overall exam which allows them to evaluate how well they have assimilated the material covered in the book.

'I spend much time helping organizations capture requirements and even more time helping them recover from not capturing requirements. Many of them have gone through some motions regarding requirements as if they were sleepworking. It's time to wake up and do it right-and this book is going to be their alarm clock.' -Jerry Weinberg, author of numerous books on productivity enhancement 'In today's complex, fast-paced software development environment, collaboration-the intense peer-to-peer conversations that result in products, decisions, and knowledge sharing-is absolutely essential to success. But all too often, attempts to collaborate degenerate into agonizing meetings or ineffectual bull sessions. Ellen's wonderful book will help you bridge the gap-turning the agony of meetings into the ecstasy of effective collaboration.' -Jim Highsmith, a pioneer in adaptive software development methods 'Requirements by Collaboration presents a wealth of practical tools and techniques for facilitating requirements development workshops. It is suitable-no, essential reading-for requirements workshop facilitators. It will help both technical people and customer representatives participate in these critical contributions to software success.' -Karl Wiegers, Principal Consultant, Process Impact, author of Software Requirements 'The need for this particular book, at this particular time, is crystal clear. We have entered a new age where software development must be viewed as a form of business problem solving. That means direct user participation in developing 'requirements,' or more accurately, in jointly working the business problem. That, in turn, means facilitated sessions. In this book, Ellen Gottesdiener provides a wealth of practical ideas for ensuring that you have exactly the right stuff for this all-important area of professional art.' -Ronald G. Ross, Principal, Business Rule Solutions, LLC, Executive Editor, 'Gottesdiener's years of software development experience coupled with her straight-forward writing style make her book a perfect choice for either a senior developer or a midlevel project manager. In addition to her technical experience, her knowledge of group dynamics balance the book by educating the reader on how to manage conflict and personality differences within a requirements team-something that is missing from most requirements textbooks...It is a required 'handbook' that will be referred to again and again.' -Kay Christian, ebusiness Consultant, Conifer, Colorado 'Requirements by Collaboration is a 'must read' for any system stakeholder. End users and system analysts will learn the significant value they can add to the systems development process. Management will learn the tremendous return they may receive from making a modest time/people investment in facilitated sessions. Facilitators will discover ways to glean an amazing amount of high-quality information in a relatively brief time.' -Russ Schwartz, Computer System Quality Consultant, Global Biotechnology Firm 'In addition to showing how requirements are identified, evaluated, and confirmed, Ellen provides important guidance based on her own real-world experience for creating and managing the workshop environment in which requirements are generated. This book is an engaging and invaluable resource for project teams and sponsors, both business and IT, who are committed to achieving results in the most productive manner possible.' -Hal Thilmony, Senior Manager, Business Process Improvement (Finance), CiscoSystems, Inc. 'Project managers should read this book for assistance with planning the requirements process. Experienced facilitators will enrich their knowledge. New facilitators can use this book to get them up to speed and become more effective in less time.' -Rob Stroober, Competence Development Manager and Project Manager, Deloitte &Touche Consultdata, The Netherlands 'While many books discuss the details of software requirement artifacts (for example, use cases), Ellen's new book zeros in on effective workshop techniques and tools used to gather the content of these artifacts. As a pioneer in requirements workshops, she shares her real-life experiences in a comprehensive and easy-to-read book with many helpful examples and diagrams.' -Bill Bird
