High Performance Computing: Considerations When Deciding To Rent Or Buy, Russell Thackston, Ryan Fortenberry 2017 Georgia Southern University

High Performance Computing: Considerations When Deciding To Rent Or Buy, Russell Thackston, Ryan Fortenberry

Russell F. Thackston

The commercial cloud computing (CCC) industry has reached a level of maturity to make it a truly viable alternative to the traditional, in-house data center. Although there are many notable examples of CCC platforms and technologies being piloted for high performance computing (HPC) tasks, it has yet to enter the mainstream. A variety of obstacles exist which have slowed or hindered adoption of CCC platforms, including implementation complexity, cost confusion, and security concerns. This paper describes the author’s experiences in using CCC for various HPC tasks and compares the results to the same tasks being executed on in-house computing ...

This study utilizes an analysis technique commonly used in marketing, the conjoint method, to examine the relative utilities of a set of beef steak characteristics considered by a national sample of 1,432 U.S. consumers, as well as additional localized samples representing undergraduate students at a business college and in an animal science department. The analyses indicate that among all respondents, region of origin is by far the most important characteristic; this is followed by animal breed, traceability, the animal feed used, and beef quality. Alternatively, the cost of cut, farm ownership, the non-use of growth promoters, and whether ...


An Examination Of A Theory Of Embodied Social Presence In Virtual Worlds, Brian E. Mennecke, Janea L. Triplett, Lesya M. Hassall, Zayira Jordán Conde, Rex Heer 2017 Iowa State University

An Examination Of A Theory Of Embodied Social Presence In Virtual Worlds, Brian E. Mennecke, Janea L. Triplett, Lesya M. Hassall, Zayira Jordán Conde, Rex Heer

Lesya Hassall

In this article, we discuss and empirically examine the importance of embodiment, context, and spatial proximity as they pertain to collaborative interaction and task completion in virtual environments. Specifically, we introduce the embodied social presence (ESP) theory as a framework to account for a higher level of perceptual engagement that users experience as they engage in activity-based social interaction in virtual environments. The ESP theory builds on the analysis of reflection data from Second Life users to explain the process by which perceptions of ESP are realized. We proceed to describe implications of ESP for collaboration and other organizational functions.

When Size Does Matter: Identifying Multilevel Factors Contributing To It Major Choice, Andy Luse, Julie Rursch, Doug Jacobson

Julie Rursch

The current enrollment crisis in information technology (IT) has left employers scrambling to find qualified individuals to fill positions in IT within the corporation. One issue facilitating this dearth of workers is the lack of individuals pursuing IT-related majors. This research uses high school students to investigate the reasons behind individual choice to major in IT. Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT) is used as a theoretical framework for better understanding these decisions and group-level contextual supports/barriers are investigated in a multilevel context. Findings show strong support for school size as a significant school-level predictor of intention to major in ...

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (Computer Science)

Three problems associated with the use of social media in marketing include:

1. The difficulty in tracking, managing, and analyzing the traffic that comes from different social media networks. Google Analytics is one of the data analytic tools that deals with traffic efficiently. It recognizes traffic sources and categorizes them to give the advertiser insights into oncoming traffic to the company’s website. It provides comprehensive statistics about traffic, which can be useful for advertisers to measure the performance of their marketing campaigns.

2. The inability to measure the success of marketing campaigns to increase sales. A/B Testing is ...

A Design Methodology And Implementation For Corporate Network Security Visualization: A Modular-Based Approach, Andy Luse, Brian E. Mennecke, Janea L. Triplett, Nate Karstens, Doug Jacobson

Douglas Jacobson

Research surrounding visualization for computer and network security has produced differing accepted methods for adequately developing security visualization products. The current work proposes a design methodology that melds the research of the three competing frameworks for security visualization development. In addition, a product that incorporates the proposed design methodology is developed, used, and evaluated. Findings show that users of the system believe the system has increased their effectiveness at performing network security tasks and are likely to use such a system in the future.


Multi-Methodological Approaches In Design Science: A Review, Proposal And Application, Xiaoyan Bai, David White, David Sundaram 2017 University of Auckland

Multi-Methodological Approaches In Design Science: A Review, Proposal And Application, Xiaoyan Bai, David White, David Sundaram

David J. White

Multi-methodological research approaches have been strongly recommended for adoption to guide information systems (IS) research and deal with the complexities involved in the research. These research approaches require appropriate mapping and integration of multiple research methodologies. However, this is not an easy task to accomplish due to a series of philosophical, cultural and psychological issues involved. By reviewing and analyzing existing representative multi-methodological design science approaches, we identify that each approach has its own strengths and weaknesses. There is a clear gap between the need of multi-methodological approaches and the support from the existing research frameworks. To address these problems ...

Assessment Methods From Around The World Potentially Useful For Public Transport Projects, Eric Bruun, Marianne Vanderschuren 2017 Consultant, Tuup, Ltd.

Assessment Methods From Around The World Potentially Useful For Public Transport Projects, Eric Bruun, Marianne Vanderschuren

Journal of Public Transportation

The financial crisis in 2008/2009 has made many countries aware that public funds need to be managed better. A logical step is to identify methods that thoroughly assess the impacts of infrastructure and service investment. The authors argue that assessments should both identify and use performance indicators related to the ‘triple bottom line’, i.e. economic, social and environmental impacts.

This paper provides an overview of assessment methods used to evaluate public transport investments. Positive and negative aspects of various assessment tools are identified and discussed. Some developing world examples appear to be more elaborate and appropriate, than developed ...


The Dark Side Of Banning Hacking Technique Discussion, Qiu-Hong WANG, Ting Zhang LE 2017 Singapore Management University

The Dark Side Of Banning Hacking Technique Discussion, Qiu-Hong Wang, Ting Zhang Le

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Prior studies have evidenced the effectiveness of more severe and broader enforcement in deterringcybercrimes. This study addresses the other side of the story. Our data analysis shows that theenforcement against the production / distribution / possession of computer misuse tools tends toincrease the contribution on detection and protection related posts in online hacker forums. Butthis enforcement may discourage those contributors who had originally actively contributed to theprotection discussions. Thus government regulations have to be cautiously justify the incentives ofmultiple parties in the cybersecurity context.
