    Factors That Affect Information and Communication Technology Adoption by Small Businesses in China

    Emerging economies appear to be powering growth in their regions. While China is seen to lead growth in the emerging markets of Asia, 98% of its manufacturing and production base is powered by small businesses. These businesses represent the majority of all businesses in emerging countries and their growth increases...

    An Adaptive Risk Control and Security Management for Embedded Real-Time System

    Traditional mechanisms for risk control and task scheduling may not be very suitable for security-critical embedded real-time systems under dynamic operation environments. In this paper, the authors are interested in design of an adaptive risk control and management mechanism of the uni-processor system for real-time embedded applications. With the purpose...

    Study of Visiting Frequency in a Delay Tolerant Network

    In a disruption/delay tolerant network, message carriers are often used to act as relays between segregated nodes and gateways. In this paper, the authors study a special routing problem for message carriers in delay tolerant networks, the visiting frequency problem. Specifically, they present a detailed analysis on a near-optimal visiting...

    Watermark Removal Using Pseudorandom Desynchronization by Selective Pixel Elimination

    Watermarking is one of the most effective tools to countering multimedia content tampering and digital piracy. However, due to widespread availability of watermarking tools and the ease of distribution via Internet, the misuse of watermarking algorithms adapted to distribute malicious information as well as industrial and government secrets is not...

    Role of Cloud Computing Interventions for Micro-Enterprise Growth: Implications for Global Development

    While the majority of businesses around the world are micro-enterprises, they are the most vulnerable and are often run by people with limited resources, and skills to be able to avail the benefits of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). These are a form of small business which employs between 1-5...

    The Impact of IT Flexibility on Strategic Alignment

    Strategic alignment or the fit between Information Technology (IT) and business strategy remains a key topic of concern among managers worldwide. Change has always being considered the foremost challenge affecting strategic alignment. Planning for alignment in uncertain and dynamic environments is fraught with risk as organizations seek to understand how...

    Mobile Termination, Network Externalities, and Consumer Expectations

    The authors re-examine the literature on mobile termination in the presence of network externalities. Externalities arise when firms discriminate between on- and off-net calls or when subscription demand is elastic. This literature predicts that profit decreases and consumer surplus increases in termination charge in a neighborhood of termination cost. This...

    Corporate Social Responsibility In The First Years Of Caja De Pensiones Para La Vejez Y De Ahorros

    When Caja de Pensiones para la Vejez y de Ahorros, 'La Caixa', was created in 1905, it was not just a transient response to a serious social, political, and economic problem; it also provided a permanent solution by creating a long-lasting social welfare institution. In addition, its founder understood the...

    Coded-Sequence Self-Encoded Spread Spectrum Communications

    Self-Encoded Spread Spectrum (SESS) employs non-deterministic spreading codes that have been generated from the random information source and provide unique advantages over traditional pseudo-random codes. In previous paper, the authors have shown that the memory in SESS-modulated signals not only can deliver a 3dB gain in AWGN channels, but also...

    Switcher-Random-Walks: A Cognitive-Inspired Mechanism for Network Exploration

    Semantic memory is the subsystem of human memory that stores knowledge of concepts or meanings, as opposed to life specific experiences. The organization of concepts within semantic memory can be understood as a semantic network, where the concepts (nodes) are associated (linked) to others depending on perceptions, similarities, etc. Lexical...

    Connections Between Computation Trees and Graph Covers

    Low density parity-check codes, along with their iterative message-passing decoders such as min-sum and sum-product, have been shown to achieve good bit error rates and perform close to capacity on channels of practical interest. While these iterative message-passing decoders are optimal on trees, iterative message-passing decoders are, in general, computationally...

    Infusing Information Technology into the Core Business Curriculum: A Change Management Project

    Many modern businesses have implemented information technology in a seamless inter-functional manner based on integrated databases. However, few business schools have followed suit by integrating information technology seamlessly into core curricula. Proprietary enterprise resource planning software packages show promise but have not been adopted in a widespread manner by academic...
