Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth. SaaS is becoming an increasingly prevalent delivery model as underlying technologies that support Web services. Broadband service has become increasingly available to support user access from more areas around the world. All types of business organizations can use this model for meeting their own respective IT requirements at low cost. But one feature of this type of web service to be alert of is that it is totally web based. Hence, failure of internet connection simply implies that this cloud service cannot be used. Thus, in order to properly use this marvelous web service, use of lease line is highly recommended for each and every user. Static IP is mandatory for this web service to effective work. But in this electronic age, since internet connection is affordable for people all over the world, this SaaS will be accessible for users of all parts of the world. If this model of cloud computing is implemented, all the benefits of SaaS can be established worldwide.
The average home needs in excess is 50 Mbps to satisfy today’s communication and entertainment lifestyle, which is sometimes hard to guarantee even in cities, but more often in the area with low-density infrastructure telecommunications networks, e.g. Iraq. Also installing fiber in buildings or households to get the required fast speeds is costly and annoying. VDSL2 solves this problem with a cost-effective manner due to its ability to reuse existing copper network and provide high-bandwidth connectivity up to 100 Mbps at a range of around 300 to 500 meters between customer and the DSLAM. Therefore DSLAM must be located closer to the subscribers. This will make VDSL2 the best broadband access technology for Buildings Complex, Campuses and Community multi dwelling unit (MDU) buildings by providing cost-effective, flexible and easy deployment of Triple Play services including; IPTV and enhanced video services (SD or HD).

The foreseeable fast growing market of the high quality multimedia applications and the internet, with ever increasing bandwidth requirements, is expected to strive, in the near future, for a full extension to the mobile users of the capacity available in the fixed Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (B-ISDN) [1,2]. The cellular Mobile Broadband Systems (MBS) concept was introduced with this motivation.
exception of the pharmacy services; which is interesting given the payment system is the same in both. However, the results should be approached with caution given the relatively small sample sizes (and for the reasons already outlined). It is of note that dental services had higher pharmacotherapy costs and this is due to the use more than one pharmacotherapy product being used in combination, for example, gum and patches. Stead et al (2008) 27 found combining nicotine patches with another form of NRT was more effective than a single type of NRT and this in part could explain the higher quit rates seen in dental settings. When considering the role of remuneration, more research is required to assess if payment by results produces greater numbers of quitters than block contracts on a wider scale. Consideration to the impact on effectiveness based on contractual arrangements such as PbR and block contract should be considered in future research.
my network, my fax system, my phone system,” says Steinmetz, CEO of Inward Strategic Consulting Inc., in Newton, MA.

Small Island Developing States (SIDS), a subgroup of Majority world countries, face complex challenges providing equitable access to speech-language therapy (SLT) services. Increasing use of information and communication technology (ICT) to enhance SLT services is seen in the Minority world. This study explored the potential of using ICT to provide sustainable SLT services in one SIDS, the Maldives. A mixed method approach was used integrating data from (a) 21 online documents, (b) interview with an ICT official, and (c) surveys of 13 island councillors and 73 parents of children with communication difficulties. Almost 100% of the population had access to mobile phones and mobile broadband internet. Most parents were active and frequent ICT users. The government provided financial aid for people with disabilities which could be utilised to access ICT for services. Asynchronous service delivery using accessible ICT and parents as agents of service delivery can potentially enhance SLT services.

The resulting benefits of the ICT adoption has been increase in transparency of government operations leading to reduced incidences of corruption, increased revenue collection, and reduction on operation costs. Similarly to e-government, m-government operates on four levels of interaction: (a) m-government to government (mG2G) referring to inter-agency relationships and the interaction between governmental agencies; (b) m-government to business (mG2B) describing the interaction of government with businesses; (c) m-government to employee (mG2E) concerning the government and its employees; and (d) m-government to citizen (mG2C), which refers to the interaction between government and citizens. The main advantages of m-government services are vast: providing non-location based information and services, personalization and ease of use of the information, and costeffectiveservices in terms of time ,
Pharmaceutical companies difficult to recruit enough patients to test the drugs in their laboratories because more than 4000 patients are required for the Food and Drug Administration to approve an experimental drug for marketing but fewer than 5% of patients in the United States are willing to participate in clinical trials. 86% of all US clinical studies are delayed on average 366 days because they fail to recruit the required number of patients results, every day a product is delayed in getting to market, one million dollars a day are lost in revenue. Permission is given to researchers to reimburse subjects for their time, inconvenience and expenses incurred in connection with research by The Council for International Organization of Medical Services (CIOMS) 8 . In Western countries, with their strict regulations, elaborate safety and compensation requirements, and small populations, has become increasingly difficult to test drugs and all of which make the recruitment of research subjects slow and expensive. Due to the shortage of investigators, Clinical research is also losing its popularity in the US. The major challenge of large number of quality professionals in medical and clinical research can only be met by cooperative and collaborative efforts between industry, academia and government. Besides the manpower efforts, the training activity will need financial support for example the industry $300 million spends on training In the US 9 . The Chinese government has improved the environment and infrastructure for clinical trials by implementing a series of important legislative measures that’s why China is transforming into an attractive location for clinical trials. The system of intellectual property (IP) rights has improved, After China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) but at present the challenges China is facing are slow regulatory process, lack of qualified central laboratory and difficulties in sample export. Permission is required from China Human Genome Resource Administrative office for whole blood or tissue sample, and special permit from MOH is required for plasma or serum sample 10 .
Now many of you here are familiar with the Health Information Exchange of Montana because Kalispell Regional Healthcare is a key part of this network. But if you’re not, you should know that it is a consortium that has deployed high-capacity fiber connections to non- profit health care providers across remote areas of northwest Montana. Those providers now have scalable access to a 10 Gigabit fiber backbone, which has expanded health care capabilities in remote communities throughout the network—on both sides of the Continental Divide. That means the transmission of medical images, patient records, and other data now takes place at broadband speed. It facilitates real-time consultations and distance learning. It helps create a virtual medical community in a region that is vast and beautiful but not always easy to travel.
Traditionally, the required hardware is installed in advance by forecasting the workload and they ensure to invest on the hardware 40 to 60 percentage more than the forecasted need. As the load increases, the capacity is also added ensuring over provisioning. The virtualization helps to decrease the over provisioning, but it has to be done manually by adding the required virtual machines or the physical server. Even by doing so, 20% of the capacity is over-provisioned, which not only increases the initial cost but also increases the maintenance cost. In spite of these high investments, there are chances of unpredictable high growth in the load, which at times is very difficult to handle immediately, thereby causing poor performance in the server. There are also chances that the server might go down. This will surely reduce the client’s trust on the animation company. The other disadvantage with the traditional model is that most of the time, the computing and the hardware capacities are not fully utilized, leading to excessive and needless investments. This hugh investment is a major problem especially with the startup companies. If the animation company utilises the cloud services, the major problems faced by them would be reduced.
