    Cloud Computing From SMES Perspective: A Survey Based Investigation

    The rapid evolvement in the contemporary business market has made competition to be at the highest level, thereby resulting products and skills to become obsolete. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) usually have less advantages in such a competition d their limited resources. This has restricted SMEs from accessing new technologies...

    A Degree Centrality in Multi-Layered Social Network

    Multi-layered social networks reflect complex relationships existing in modern interconnected IT systems. In such a network each pair of nodes may be linked by many edges that correspond to different communication or collaboration user activities. Multi-layered degree centrality for multi-layered social networks is presented in the paper. Experimental studies were...

    Control Dependence for Extended Finite State Machines

    Though there has been nearly three decades of work on program slicing, there has been comparatively little work on slicing for state machines. One of the primary challenges that currently presents a barrier to wider application of state machine slicing is the problem of determining control dependence. The authors survey...
