With the growth in the use of ICTs to support information handling within organizations, the political nature of information has come into sharper focus. In this regard, information professionals which librarians are one have become highly powerful and respected in the management of every organization.The application and diffusion of information and communication technology cannot be viewed in isolation from development in telecommunication technology.this study concentrates on the following objectives: identifying the types of data/information are created/generated in Kashim Ibrahim Library, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, exploring the type of ICT devices are available for management of information in Kashim Ibrahim Library, evaluating the type of ICT facilities are used in management of information in Kashim Ibrahim Library, examining the extent that the Information Communication Technology devices being used for management of information in Kashim Ibrahim Library, finding the reasons are information generated used in Kashim Ibrahim Library, and exploring the problems encountered in the use of ICT devices for management of information in Kashim Ibrahim Library,ABU,Zaria
Virtualized web application servers within computational clouds, such as the Google App Engine, generally restrict resource usage and therefore provide limited, relationally none-complete query facilities only. This work investigates how scalable, reliable and a more powerful access to the App Engine Datastore can be accomplished and an Optimized Distributed Datastore Exchange (ODDSE) is presented. Being aware of the App Engine's resource restrictions ODDSE provides a reliable and failure safe query interface to transparently exchange data with the distributed Datastore using the query languages SQL or AmosQL. ODDSE wraps Datastore relations and utilizes the extensible database system Amos II to compensate for missing query facilities in Google's relationally none-complete query language GQL. Under the covers ODDSE furthermore implements an adaptive and reliable management of interactions with App Engine servers. For scalability and high performance the interaction is parallelized and continuously adapted. The performance of ODDSE is evaluated and compared to a similar system showing its considerably good results for both bulk uploading and query processing.
Multivariate analysis is branch of statistics designed to reduce the complexity of high dimensional data by creating a low- dimensional representation of the data without ignoring the relationships among individual taxa. R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display. It is integrated collection of intermediate tools, graphical facilities and display either directly at the computer or on hardcopy make it vital. R is very much a vehicle for newly developing methods of interactive multivariate data analysis. It has developed rapidly, and has been extended by a large collection of packages. R is adventitious Over SAS and SPSS because the data input management system, statistical and graphical procedure, and output management system and matrix language. The application of R in matrix, analysis of variance (ANOVA), regression analysis, cluster analysis and ordination methods such as Principal Components Analysis (PCA), Principal Co-ordinates Analysis (PCoA), Correspondence Analysis, Detrended Correspondence Analysis and Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS) for different disciplines is described in this book.
Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks are self-organizing networks established among vehicles equipped with communication facilities. For a rich set of applications implementing Intelligent Highways, like application related to road safety, traffic monitoring and management, road disaster mitigation etc. the road side infrastructure plays a vital role for any VANET. This is the reason that efficient communication between the vehicles and the road side infrastructure is required. Meeting this requirement becomes very difficult as nodes in a VANET are highly mobile and thus the network topology is highly dynamic. This work aims to achieve a better vehicle to infrastructure communication. The application under consideration is providing a zero traffic lane (Z-Lane) for an ambulance using VANET. To achieve the goal the first step is to identify a suitable vehicular mobility model. This monograph documents the related literature survey. The simulation based experimental setup for the said application using SUMO(Simulation of Urban Mobility) and NS2(Network Simulator 2)are thoroughly explained in this monograph.
ICT application in university libraries of Rajasthan has become inevitable in an era of information explosion and widespread use of digital information resources. Effective application of ICT in university libraries of Rajasthan shall help in performing their operations and services most efficiently. Rajasthan university libraries have been applying ICT for providing efficient services and resources, but efforts are yet not enough. Though a few university libraries in Rajasthan have basic hardware and software facilities yet, ICT based resources and services are not reaching to the users to expected extent. The study under investigation concludes that most of the university libraries in Rajasthan need proper ICT infrastructure including hardware, software and humanware, and library staffs have to be trained properly to make use of the resources optimally both conventional and digital resources. Librarians and the library staff both have to be trained to achieve total quality management. Moreover two important issues have to be addressed. These are change and high communicative ability of librarians. Library professionals working in university libraries of Rajasthan should know
The present thesis aims to develop and to analyze methods and algorithms to control uncertain systems. The methods developed are based on control and optimization theory. Model Predictive Control, Large Deviations, Approximate Dynamic Programming and Robust Optimization are applied, extended and combined to face the challenges presented in the application of such methods in real-world problems. In particular, the algorithms developed have been applied to supply chain systems. A supply chain is composed by several business units working together to match the market demand of a product. Despite several economic and cultural changes, (i.e. low production cost, international outsourcing...) the main goal of a supply chain networks is to procure raw materials and transform them into final products. This involves the automation of several processes: material and information flows, and relationships between supplier and customers. To reach these objective the management of a supply chain has to take several decisions and to supervise and to control several facilities.
Disease surveillance is an ongoing process involving the systematic collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of health data. This requires the collection and analysis of varied and relatively large amounts of data, from and about the locations where diseases and related health problems occur and from where patients present themselves, typically in urban and rural health centres and hospitals. The quality of data and its transformation into information are basic to the efficiency and effectiveness of all information systems. The web-based data entry system for disease surveillance is a reporting tool to be used by all disease surveillance centres (health facilities) in reporting cases to sub-district, district, regional and national levels. It is a web technology which shall send the data to a central database server. The application will provide web-based data screens for data entry. With a web-based data entry system, data can be entered anywhere in the country and this will be sent to the remote database server at the National Disease Surveillance Department. The system will provide web screens for the entry, management and querying of core demographic and diseases.
