Although information and communications technology describes a large range of systems there are still some underlining common features. An information system incorporates a group of people, equipment and procedures. It is there to collect, record, process, store, retrieve and present information. The importance of ICT for the smooth running of a multi-site business is paramount, the following are a number of ways in which ICT can improve your company’s performance; - Increased Efficiency: If programmed correctly, computers can monitor the data collection processes very efficiently, whilst also checking for human errors and providing help and guidance to the user. Most large scale organisations are using computer-assisted interviewing as standard in many of their surveys simply because of the remarkable achievements good data collection programs can make to reduce human error and speed processing in the collection of important information.
Embedded Systems 'Intelligence' takes account of autonomous reasoning and acting in a co-operative manner. 'Ambient Intelligence' refers to an exciting new paradigm in information technology, "in which people are empowered through a digital environment that is aware of their presence and context and is sensitive, adaptive and responsive to their needs, habits, gestures and emotions." This applies not only for people-centred tasks, which, of course, seems the most exciting, science-fiction-type, aspect, but also for purely technical solutions like smart sensors, actuators and control systems, especially in safety related applications. Heterogeneity (of environment, applications, protocols, etc. ), autonomy (self-awareness, self healing, self-organizing, etc.
Experts have claimed that the services provided by cloud computing help the companies who subscribe for its use to focus on things that would differentiate them from other in this way they don’t look for its infrastructure cost or the infrastructure of the business. Advocates likewise guarantee that this system permits undertakings to get their applications up and running
• Section 1 will provide the known issues • Section 2 will provide recommended solutions for these issues • Section 3 will prioritize these solutions in a timeline • Section 4 will summarize the plan and next steps Let us begin with security and technology issues to recognize and comprehend the vulnerabilities found in this analysis. Security and Technology Issues Merriam-Webster defines vulnerability as being open to attack or damage. This is the reason why it is imperative to identify vulnerabilities and to mitigate them. During the analysis, it was discovered that there were three defining technology issues and a security issue that needed to be
Virtual Machine Contracts (VMC) are a trouble-free idea but also crucial step towards automated control and management of large data centers and cloud computing environments VMCs help enable VMs can migrate safely and naturally within a data center, between on and off premise capacity and between multiple cloud providers. There is a need to investigate new techniques for allocation of resources to cloud computing applications depending on quality of service expectations of users and service contracts established between consumers and providers. Several challenges need to be addressed to realize this vision.
"The key idea behind qualitative research is to learn about the problem or issue from participants and engage in the best practices to obtain that information" (Creswell, 2007). The study will use different qualitative data collection techniques and interpret the results by using interpretivism philosophy. In the interpretivism philosophy the research will conduct by reducing bias and therefore enabling the advent of thoughts, viewpoints, and sentiments (Henning 2004). According to (Saunders et al, 2012) there are two widely used research approaches The first research approach is deductive approach and its ground is considering general premises and reached to specific c... ... middle of paper ... ...ying mainly semi-structured in-depth interview with relevant stakeholders. During the interview, notes will be taken and informants will also be tape-recorded when permissions obtained and immediately transcribed using the informants’ own words.

The biggest impact of this is visible in the area of smart cities, which is transforming the provision of management services and energy and utilities. Software and Web developers are saving a lot of time pulling in various cloud services and focus its attention on the new business logic solutions. Centralized, intelligent cloud services improve the functionality or performance of the applications automatically based on the data that is not unlike watching Amazon for making recommendations based on previous purchases or ad-tech companies to optimize retargeting. Cloud Application Architecture does have some resemblance to the SDN, where a centralized intelligent element, often plays the role of analyzing data from across many end nodes and changing the behavior of the end nodes. Distribution of application logic through numerous centralized cloud services enables more automated and intelligent applications.
“ With cloud computing, governments are receiving these benefits to keep data secured. With the recent paradigm shift in IT from physical data centers to virtualized data centers in the cloud, government agencies can take benefits of on-demand provisioning of application, platforms, software, data and other services while controlling resources, cost and meeting ever changing demands” (Iyoob & Rao). ... ... middle of paper ... ...that the records they preserve have to follow schedules, be accessible and most importantly they should be organized. Cloud computing enable independent perspective on location, how people collaborate, work and communicate. It also enables providers to use cloud computing data centers.
The use of cloud computing helps bring forth a rare occurrence where a large corporate technology will help people on their computers at home. This paper will provide a snapshot of the advantages of cloud computing as well as the risks, and also illuminating how cloud works, and how it can help you better access your data and software. The future of cloud computing can be very exciting, but moving more of our lives online means we will inevitably have to consider the consequences, as we are already starting to see in this new digital era. Cloud computing means dependence on things that are not right in front of us, and that could limit our privacy because of policies to access our information. Security could be a big issue and large companies like Amazon and Google could eventually monopolize the market, as we already see in the United States with a similar case of Comcast potentially monopolizing the internet service provider market.
