    How Does Business Analytics Contribute to Business Value?

    This paper presents a model, synthesized from the literature, of factors that explain how business analytics contributes to business value. It also reports results from a preliminary test of that model. The model consists of two parts: a process and a variance model. The process model depicts the analyze-insight-decision-action process...

    Energy-Efficient Management of Virtual Machines in Data Centers for Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing has revolutionized the information technology industry by enabling elastic on-demand provisioning of computing resources. The proliferation of Cloud computing has resulted in the establishment of large-scale data centers around the world containing thousands of compute nodes. However, Cloud data centers consume enormous amounts of electrical energy resulting in...

    Autonomic Cloud Computing: Open Challenges and Architectural Elements

    As Clouds are complex, large-scale, and heterogeneous distributed systems, management of their resources is a challenging task. They need automated and integrated intelligent strategies for provisioning of resources to offer services that are secure, reliable, and cost-efficient. Hence, effective management of services becomes fundamental in software platforms that constitute the...

    Internet of Things (IoT): A Vision, Architectural Elements, and Future Directions

    Ubiquitous sensing enabled by Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies cuts across many areas of modern day living. This offers the ability to measure, infer and understand environmental indicators, from delicate ecologies and natural resources to urban environments. The proliferation of these devices in a communicating-actuating network creates the Internet of...
