INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY: SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

One model of the systems development life cycle involves the process of creating a simplifi ed version, or part, of a system as soon as analysis is completed. This helps to quickly identify misunderstandings between system users and developers, and to expose missing user requirements early in the systems development life cycle. Question 3

Communication and Information Technology Uses in an Indian Software Development Setting.

Communication and Information Technology Uses in an Indian Software Development Setting.

Finally, these disciplinary mechanisms are associated with highly motivating values that appeal to the organizational actors (Barker & Cheney, 1994, p. 30). Contemporary organizations not only specify appropriate behaviors but also define attitudes, beliefs, and values that guide individual and collective actions. In CapiTech company, value-based appeals are associated with safeguarding an employee’s position in the organization from miscommunication. Employees at CapiTech company are consistently encouraged to use emails for all formal communication and to document work progress, conversations, meeting minutes, client requirements, and similar work-related information. As mentioned in the previous chapter, handwritten notebooks are used for recording purposes on an internal organizational level. However, emails have an additional value as a record for both internal and external communication. Documentation and records of client-employee and employee-employee interaction on emails are considered as a “legal” form of proof that can become decisive during conflict situations. As this participant explained, emails serve as evidence:

A Spring Model: A New Information Technology System Development Methodology to Combine Software Engineering Stages and Project Management Factors

A Spring Model: A New Information Technology System Development Methodology to Combine Software Engineering Stages and Project Management Factors

By now, most organizations use the information system developed in many disciplines. The IT system development like the software term is not old. The history of information system deployment is related to history of the computer. Four decades ago, code-and-fix was the first method in software development process, which was not reliable. After that, the structured system development was used for 40 years. Although rapid application development (RAD), Prototyping, and Agile Methods are used to develop a large range of information systems, most of the software development models are based on the life cycle scheme [1]. Currently, object-oriented (OO) Methodologies are most popular; however, some as aforementioned models such as OO do not cover all stages of system life cycle.

National Innovation System and the Emergence of Indian Information and Software Technology Multinationals

National Innovation System and the Emergence of Indian Information and Software Technology Multinationals

The  growth  of  Indian  IST  industry  in  1980s  is  also  related  to  the  overall  strategy  of  government  to  build  industrial  capacity  in  the  country  during  the  period  1950s–1980s  with targeted public sector investment in skill, infrastructure, and institutions. In various  Five Year  Plan  documents,  the  policy  has  laid  special  emphasis on  expanding facilities  for  post‐graduate studies  and  research  in  engineering,  technological,  and  management  education  besides  improving  facilities  for  diploma  or  certificate  courses  for  training  supervisory personnel.  The basic objective was  to create a  skilled workforce  to support  the  economic  development  of  post‐Independent  India.  The  Central  Government  has  established a number of  higher technological institutes  like five IITs (Indian Institute of  Technology)  at  Kharagpur  (1951),  Mumbai  (1958),  Chennai  (1959),  Kanpur  (1959),  and  Delhi  (1961);  IIMs  (Indian  Institute  of  Management)  at  Ahmedabad  (1961),  Bangalore  (1973),  Calcutta  (1961);  in  addition  a  number  of  technological  institutions  (engineering  colleges and polytechnics) and universities were being added to the national educational  system.  Between  1950–51  and  1981  the  number  has  increased  from  49  with  an  annual  capacity of 4120 students to 171 with a  capacity of 34835 students  in the case of degree  courses and 84 with a capacity of 5900 students to 363 with a capacity of 61114 students  in the case of diploma courses. The increased availability of these specialized institutions  has  led  Indian  households  to  send  their  children  for  higher  specialized  and  technical  education. The overall enrollment ratio for secondary school education has gone up from  5.4  per  cent  in  1950–51  to  17.3  per  cent  in  1980–81  and  the  number  of  engineering  graduates and diploma holders jumped between the same years from 4680 to 53499. All  these have contributed to the major development of skills and education in India, which  have greatly helped the growth of Indian IST industry (Abraham and Sharma, 2005).

Transaction Costs, Information Technology and Development

Transaction Costs, Information Technology and Development

In developing countries, ‘cyber kiosks’ are already common in cities and larger towns, with usage patterns often quite similar to those in developed countries. Urban population densities, income levels, cultural attitudes and telecommunications infrastructure all seem to be sufficient for the commercial success of these enterprises. The falling cost of hardware and a variety of software have also supported this trend. On the other hand, in rural areas the various demographic and socioeconomic variables may not be present in configurations that would easily enable the diffusion of commercial access to various IT-enabled services. Other barriers include the market power of traditional rural intermediaries and local language requirements and different demand patterns for software. Nevertheless, a case can be made that transaction costs are relatively 8 very high in rural areas of developing countries, and that IT can bring those costs down. The issue may be one of cost-effective provision of IT access, rather than the absence of IT-based efficiency gains.

A study on component-based technology for development of complex bioinformatics software

A study on component-based technology for development of complex bioinformatics software

Protein local structure prediction can be described as prediction of protein secondary structure from protein subsequence. This protein subsequence or also known as protein local structure covers fragments of the protein sequence. In fact, it is easier to identify the sequence-to-secondary structure relationship using protein subsequence rather than use the whole protein sequence. Further, this relationship can be used to infer new protein fold, protein function and detect protein remote homolog. Due to its significance, a predictive algorithm named R-HCSVM is developed to predict protein local structure that works with following steps. Firstly, pre-process the input information for R- HCSVM. There are two types of input information needed namely protein residue score and protein secondary structure class. ResiduePatchScore information has been introduced as new method to pre-process protein residue score by combining protein conservation score that conserved rich functional information and protein propensity score that conserved rich secondary structural information. Hence, the protein residue score possess strength information that able to avoid bias scoring. Secondly, segment protein sequences into nine continuous length of protein subsequence. Next step which is highlighted another novel part in this study whereas a hybrid clustering SVM is introduced to reduce the training complexity. SOM and K-Means are integrated as a clustering algorithm to produce a granular input, while SVM is then used as a classifier. Based on the protein sequence datasets obtained from PISCES database, it is found that the R-HCSVM performs outstanding result in predicting protein local structure from a given protein subsequence compared to other methods.

EU and US regulation of health information technology, software and mobile apps

EU and US regulation of health information technology, software and mobile apps

If the definition for a medical device, which is sufficiently broad and all encompassing, were to be given its purposive meaning according to established European jurisprudence, equipment, appliances or apparatus involved in e-health or m-health could be regulated as a medical device. This classification in itself may be somewhat artificial, given that mobile software equipment and appliances similar to medical devices are regulated under the NA directives. The NA seeks to address all hazards or risks related to the public interest that the directive intends to protect, such as protection of the consumers, patients or users. According to the Commission, regulatory compliance with the essential require- ments can often require simultaneous application of more than one NA directive, and possibly with other EU legal instruments. In its public consultation document concerning the recast (that is, codification or consolidation) of the Medical Devices Directive, the Commission asked whether the current approach to assessing essential requirements is sufficiently robust to innovative tech- nologies and practices, including those that are based on nanote- chnology, genetic testing and advancements in IT, which may be involved in the development of e-health or m-health across the EU. The consultation document also asked whether appropriate adaptation or reinforcement of the established principles under- pinning essential requirements is required in the recast of the Medical Devices Directive.

to aid them realise value added new products at every stage of the NPD process. Some of these tools are custom made; tailored to suit the peculiarities of the company and their products, some others are premium tools with or without redistribution rights, and some are freemium while others are open source tools. IT tools used for NPD process were adapted from traditional or old methods of developing products. For instance, electronic brainstorming which is discussions online used to generate ideas and solve problems was adapted from the conventional face-to-face meetings. As outlined by Lilien and Rangaswamy (1997), some research reveals that the use of electronic brainstorming systems improved efficiency and effectiveness of idea generation compared to face-to-face meeting. The growth of IT tools to facilitate and support NPD processes has been on the increase, however, there is little research reporting the role of theses individual or collective tools on each stage of the NPD. Durmuşoğlu et al (2006) carried out a research to measure the frequency of IT tools used in the activities of NPD. IT tools were grouped into; NPD process management tools, communication technologies, collaborative project management tools, financial analysis software, virtual prototyping tools and marketing tools. These IT tools grouping was used to formulate a theoretical model for this study.

INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY A NEW INCLINATION IN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY A NEW INCLINATION IN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Information and communication technologies have brought new possibilities to the education sector, but at the same time, they have placed more demands on teachers. They now have to learn how to cope with computers in their classrooms, how to compete with students in accessing the enormous body of information – particularly via the internet and how to use the hardware and software to enhance the teaching/learning process. Bhatta (2008) would contend that unless teachers are fully comfortable with new approaches to teaching inherent in ICT integration, providing students with computers and educational content alone will have limited impact on the teaching and learning process. It is also essential that teachers understand that ICT-based education only changes their role, rather than minimizing or eliminating their role altogether. Butler and Leahy (2003) would argue that there is a need to develop teachers‟ thinking to that of „critical judgment‟ (Papert, 1990) to ensure that teachers are not limited by their current understandings and experiences of digital technologies as a somewhat intimidating new dimension to their classroom practices.

Information and communication technology for urban development: a gender perspective

Information and communication technology for urban development: a gender perspective

Despite numerous benefits accrued to access and use of ICT, many women are not yet ICT compliant as compared to their male counterparts and so may be left out in terms of development. Scholars have pointed out that a people’s relationship with technologies, such as ICT, determines their use and access. Wajcman (1991:28) posits that "though new technologies do represent a force for change … the outcomes are constrained by the pre-existing organization of work, of which gender is an integral part". Implying that one’s relationship with technology is dependent on whether one’s needs and concerns are considered and whether what one needs is made available. In Hafkin’s (2002) words, ‘one cannot use what is not available’ but even when it is availed, the existence of ICT in public spheres does not guarantee access to and use by all. In the same vein Wambui (2002) adds that the constraints to effective use of ICTs in developing countries are a mirror of the already embedded gender relations in the society where women are socialised into non-technical careers and made to distant themselves from software production. However, Chapman and Slaymaker, (2002) refute this when they mention that women need to move beyond being merely users of technology to being producers of technology.From the above discussion, Wambui’s observation may be seen to have been skewed to developing countries, particularly Africa. However, in India, the reverse is true because women have made careers in the ICT sector. Furthermore, other parts of the world have noted high women representation in software production and use (Wright and Jacobs, 1994). Rickert, Anne and Sacharow, (2000) support this when they mention that, currently, more than 50% of the internet users in the west are women. Even so, men are still advantaged in creating and controlling what goes on in the media given their roles as technocrats (Herring, forthcoming). Hence, there are still disparities of ICT production by women as compared to men. This is confirmed by Wood (2000) who asserts that:
