Enterprise Systems Network: Securid Solutions, The Authentication To Global Security Systems, Emmanuel U. Opara, Vance Etnyre

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

Enterprise systems need reliable, flexible and secure means for making public and confidential information available to users in a secured and trusted manner. Although enterprise systems have variety of choice to authenticate these users, organizations face significant issues when granting access and providing a manageable structure for valuable access control. Logon functionalities such as user name and password algorithm have been used to grant authentication and authorization into enterprise systems network resources. Since most systems clients prefer the ease of using passwords, and since passwords are easily compromised, the urgency for a stronger authentication process becomes paramount. This study performed ...

These policies lead to different estimates of the impact of new technology on the replacement policies and equipment service life.


Information Technology Certification Value: An Initial Response From Employers, David Wiershem, Guoying Zhang, Charles R. Johnston 2010 Texas State University

Information Technology Certification Value: An Initial Response From Employers, David Wiershem, Guoying Zhang, Charles R. Johnston

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

This article looks at the value of certification from the employer's perspective. It is perhaps the first study in this area that gathers data directly from employers. A survey of directors of university information technology departments is analyzed, and the results indicate limited support for certifications being valued assets of their employees. While not sufficiently strong enough to warrant generalization of the results to business in general, with this information, students and professionals should be able to better prepare themselves for finding employment and academic programs can better evaluate the appropriateness of the inclusion of certification training in their ...

Key Success Factors In Knowledge Transfer During M&A In Traditional Industries: An Empirical Study, Jun Huang, Juan Ling, Jiaqin Yang, Quanwu Zhao

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

This paper describes a study on identifying key successful factors in knowledge transfer resulting from business mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in those (so-called) traditional industries (e.g., textile and steel & iron) with the data collected in the steel and iron industry in Southwestern China. Specifically, this research investigates the relationship between prior-gained knowledge of merging companies, preparation and implementation processes, and actual performance after knowledge transfer. The result reveals that such prior-gained knowledge of merging companies will have a significant positive impact on the motivation for proposed M&A, while it, in contrast, may only have a limited impact ...

Analysis Of Xbrl Literature: A Decade Of Progress And Puzzle, Saeed Roohani, Zhao Xianming, Ernest Capozzoli, Barbara Lamberton

Faculty Publications

XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting language) was recently, in 2008, in its 10th year. The concept was articulated in 1998 by Charles Hoffman, known as XFRML (eXtensible Financial Reporting Mark Up Language) to facilitate the business reporting process and improve financial reporting. The objective of this paper is to examine a decade (1998-2008) of XBRL articles published in various publications including trade, practitioner and academic journals to identify trends and patterns, milestones, and organizations actively contributed to this development. Another goal is to assess public perceptions of XBRL, its capabilities and its future. We examined published articles where XBRL appeared either ...


Detailing Vs. Direct-To-Consumer Advertising In The Prescription Pharmaceutical Industry, Ram Bala, Pradeep Bhardwaj 2010 Santa Clara University

Detailing Vs. Direct-To-Consumer Advertising In The Prescription Pharmaceutical Industry, Ram Bala, Pradeep Bhardwaj

Operations Management & Information Systems

The pharmaceutical industry has always used sales representatives to target physicians (detailing), who are a key link in sales and market share for prescription pharmaceuticals. Since August of 1997 when the Food and Drug Administration eased the restrictions on Direct-toconsumer advertising (DTCA), there has been a dramatic increase in the use of DTCA by pharmaceutical firms to target end customers (patients). DTCA seems to have two different effects on pharmaceutical markets. The first is to inform patients about the availability of drugs for some ailments, thus expanding the market (constructive). The second is to persuade patients to talk about specific ...


Does Co-Opetition Change The Game? A Bayesian Analysis Of Participation Strategy In An Industry Standard-Setting Organization, Robert J. KAUFFMAN, Benjamin B. M. SHAO, Juliana Y. TSAI 2010 Singapore Management University

Does Co-Opetition Change The Game? A Bayesian Analysis Of Participation Strategy In An Industry Standard-Setting Organization, Robert J. Kauffman, Benjamin B. M. Shao, Juliana Y. Tsai

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Across different industries, we observe the emergence of industry standard-setting organizations (SSO) that focus on the creation of industry-specific process standards. Firms adopt a strategy of co-opetition, the combination of cooperation and competition, during standards development. We propose that a firm's co-opetition strategy is revealed to some extent by when it elects to participate in an industry SSO. Bayesian information updating offers an effective empirical modeling perspective for studying firms' participation strategies when managers' beliefs and uncertainties are factored into their decision-making. We analyze a panel data set of 73 U.S. public firms over a 20-year period. These ...


A Method For Developing Churchmanian Knowledge Management Systems, Lars Linden 2010 University of Central Florida

A Method For Developing Churchmanian Knowledge Management Systems, Lars Linden

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Some problems confronted by managers include ill-formulated wicked planning problems, a type of problem that is difficult to solve because, in part, it is difficult to know what the problem is. The Churchmanian Knowledge Management Systems (CKMS) (Richardson & Courtney, 2004) is comprised of design principles for aiding system designers, managers, and clients who make decisions pertaining to these ill-formulated wicked planning problems. Problemography theory is proposed as a method for developing a CKMS. The method aims to measure CKMS development by using development tools that enables stakeholders and theoreticians to clarify CKMS development. A study was conducted to test a ...

Understanding Project Champions’ Ability To Gain Intra-Organizational Commitment For Environmental Projects, Thomas F. Gattiker, Craig R. Carter 2010 Boise State University

Understanding Project Champions’ Ability To Gain Intra-Organizational Commitment For Environmental Projects, Thomas F. Gattiker, Craig R. Carter

IT and Supply Chain Management Faculty Publications and Presentations

A key enabler of environmental projects is the ability of the project champion to gain commitment to the project from other stakeholders in his or her organization. This paper develops a model of commitment-gaining success that is based on intra-organizational influence theory. The model also includes the project payback, customer pressure, government regulation, top management support and the project champion’s position in the organizational hierarchy. The model was tested using survey data from 241 environmental professionals describing their attempts to gain the buy-in of purchasing managers, operations managers, industrial engineers and others for environmental projects. The results (obtained from ...

Database Security: What Students Need To Know, Meg C. Murray 2010 Kennesaw State University

Database Security: What Students Need To Know, Meg C. Murray

Faculty Publications

Database security is a growing concern evidenced by an increase in the number of reported incidents of loss of or unauthorized exposure to sensitive data. As the amount of data collected, retained and shared electronically expands, so does the need to understand database security. The Defense Information Systems Agency of the US Department of Defense (2004), in its Database Security Technical Implementation Guide, states that database security should provide controlled, protected access to the contents of a database as well as preserve the integrity, consistency, and overall quality of the data. Students in the computing disciplines must develop an understanding ...


Public Entrants, Public Equity Finance And Creative Destruction, James R. Brown, Bruce C. Petersen 2010 Iowa State University

Public Entrants, Public Equity Finance And Creative Destruction, James R. Brown, Bruce C. Petersen

Finance Publication

We explore the importance of new public firms and public equity finance for R&D and creative destruction in the U.S. high-tech sector. Over 1900 new public firms enter high-tech manufacturing between 1970 and 2004; they are increasingly R&D intensive and rely extensively on public equity finance in the 1980s and 1990s. We estimate dynamic R&D models and find a strong link between public equity finance and R&D for new entrants, but not established entrants or incumbents. Further, recent cohorts of public entrants have a substantial economic impact: by 2000, recent public entrants account for almost half of high-tech sales and more than half of R&D. Variation in the availability of public equity finance has a marked ...

A Systems Analysis Experiential Case Study: Repeatable Real World Problem Solving, Priscilla Arling, C. Deeter, H. Eggers

Scholarship and Professional Work - Business

Many business schools today are emphasizing experiential education, particularly in undergraduate instruction, where students often have had limited exposure to business settings. While a business problem can be presented in the form of a written case study, real world projects for external clients are increasingly being incorporated into the classroom. However finding suitable clients and projects for multiple student teams each semester can be difficult.


Production, Process Investment And The Survival Of Debt Financed Startup Firms, S. Sinan Erzurumlu, Fehmi Tanrisever, Nitin Joglekar 2010 Babson College

Production, Process Investment And The Survival Of Debt Financed Startup Firms, S. Sinan Erzurumlu, Fehmi Tanrisever, Nitin Joglekar

Babson Faculty Research Fund Working Papers

Whether to invest in process development that can reduce the unit cost and thereby raise future profits or to conserve cash and reduce the likelihood of bankruptcy is a key concern faced by many startups firms that have taken on debt. We explore this concern by examining the production quantity and cost-reducing R&D investment decisions in a two period model. A startup firm must make a minimum level of profits at the end of the first period to survive and continue operating in the second period. We show that under a base case, with deterministic demand, such a startup ...


The Role Of Complementary Resources In The Development Of E-Supply Chains And The Firm’S Performance: An Exploratory Analysis Of Secondary Data, Yoo-Taek Lee, Kathleen E. McKone-Sweet, Sung-Yong Ryu 2010 Babson College

The Role Of Complementary Resources In The Development Of E-Supply Chains And The Firm’S Performance: An Exploratory Analysis Of Secondary Data, Yoo-Taek Lee, Kathleen E. Mckone-Sweet, Sung-Yong Ryu

Babson Faculty Research Fund Working Papers

E-supply chains (e-SCs), which are Internet-enabled supply chains, are progressively being implemented in companies to improve their operational and financial performance. Several studies exist where the association between the development of an e-supply chain and the performance of a firm, has been investigated. However, there is a paucity of literature that describes how information technology (IT) resources interact with other complementary resources to e-supply chains to positively impact a firm’s performance. This paper seeks to adopt a resource-based view of the firms (RBVF) and empirically tests a framework that identifies and validates the relationships among IT resources, complementary resources ...


Back-Loading: A Potential Side Effect Of Employing Digital Design Tools In New Product Development, Sebastian K. Fixson, Tucker J. Marion 2010 Babson College

Back-Loading: A Potential Side Effect Of Employing Digital Design Tools In New Product Development, Sebastian K. Fixson, Tucker J. Marion

Technology, Operations & Information Management Working Papers

Over the past twenty years, the use of digital design tools such as Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) has increased dramatically. Today, almost no product development project is conducted without the use of CAD models. Major advantages typically ascribed to using CAD include better solutions through broader exploration of the solution space as well as faster and less expensive projects through faster and earlier iterations. This latter effect, the shifting of simulation and testing traditionally accomplished with help of physical prototypes late in the process–a slow and expensive activity–to doing similar activities with virtual prototypes faster and earlier in the process ...
