Cloud Computing: Implementation, Management, and Security provides an understanding of what cloud computing really means, explores how disruptive it may become in the future, and examines its advantages and disadvantages. It gives business executives the knowledge necessary to make informed, educated decisions regarding cloud initiatives.
The authors first discuss the evolution of computing from a historical perspective, focusing primarily on advances that led to the development of cloud computing.
This report examines the Air Force’s training management and decision processes to determine the need for data to support informed decisionmaking. It briefly reviews training management systems and associated organizational arrangements in the other services and the private sector to draw insights for a model management system for the Air Force. Impediments to training planning and management in the current Air
However, the literature on brain drain (Mountford 1997; Stark et al 1997, 1998; Vidal 1998; Beine, Docquier and Rapoport 2001, 2008) argues that workers in the home country make their educational choices taking into account the return to education in the receiving country and their migration prospects. We study the selectivity of migrants when agents make joint decisions about how much to invest in education and whether to migrate.
ISO 9000 standard which is playing a significant role in higher education is originally began for universities and institutes in the training international standard. Evaluating and planning strategies have the key roles in a university for the development of educational management. Webbased Decision Support System (DSS) can be used as an evaluation tool as well as a strategic planning tool for schools / universities. Currently, there are few studies in DSS using a domain of ISO 9000 in a traditional education. ...
Although poor mental health has often been correlated with poor
educational attainment and/or dropping out of education, there
have been few longitudinal studies on this subject. In this paper,
we investigate this issue using a recent longitudinal study of young
people in England. England is a very interesting country to under-
take such an investigation because both poor mental health and a
high drop-out rate of young people are known to be important by
At the beginning of every semester in one of
my undergraduate health classes at Texas State
University, I ask my students, “How many of
you feel you received quality sexuality education
from either your parents or school?” Typically, I
see two or three hands out of 50 students. When
I ask these 18- and 19-year-old students, the vast
majority of whom are products of Texas public
schools, why they didn’t learn this important
information, their explanations have become a
familiar litany: “We skipped the sex ed chapter in
It also outlines analytic developments that could help convert raw data into information useful for decisionmakers. The research reported here was sponsored by the Air Education and Training Command (AETC/CV) and HQ Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff, Personnel (AF/DP) and conducted within the Manpower, Personnel, and Training Program of RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF) at the RAND Corporation. Earlier, PAF explored the requirements of a technical training schoolhouse model to address pipeline capacity.
The first implication of this work is that DDDM does not guarantee effective decision making: having data does not mean that it will be used appropriately or lead to improvements. Second, practitioners and policymakers should promote the use of various data types collected at multiple points in time.
In addition to clarifying educational outcomes as they relate to workforce needs and
expectations, competencies are critical to linking course learning objectives to the SPH/PHP
instructional objectives. The CEPH criteria require each SPH/PHP to state a mission that is
supported by institutional goals for instruction, service and research. Goals are broad idealistic
statements of how the institution’s efforts in research, service and instruction lead to the stated
The study is to develop a DSS application for evaluation of training quality and quality assurance in educational management of university. The study has opened a new way of DSS application in educational management. For VNU training model, Web-based DSS application using TQM factors is the first academic research achievement in Vietnam and Asia.
The implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in the
UK from January 2005 marked the start of an intensely interesting and challenging
period for those involved in preparing or using the annual reports and financial
statements of listed UK companies.
Web developers have been eager for an impartial comparison of leading PHP frameworks so they can make educated decisions about the most effective tool for their needs. This guide uses Symfony, CakePHP, and Zend Framework to solve key problems, providing source code examples and comparisons for each. It explains the approach and reviews the similarities and differences in the three frameworks, providing reliable information on which to base your decisions.
Drawing on a large and wide-ranging literature on consumer behaviour, this report argues
that psychological rather than informational differences may explain much of the variation in
financial capability reported in the FSA's financial capability survey, and that people's
financial behaviour may primarily depend on their intrinsic psychological attributes rather
than information or skills or how they choose to deploy them.
Engineers . . .Build products such as cell phones, home appliances, heart valves, bridges, & cars. In general they advance society by building new technology. Develop processes, such as the process to convert salt water into fresh water or the
process to recycle bottles. These processes change how we live and what we can accomplish.Decisions made by
engineers usually have
serious consequences to
For States that do not seek to operate a State-based Exchange or a Partnership with the Federally-
facilitated Exchange, HHS will establish and operate a Federally-facilitated Exchange. In such
instances, a State may elect to run reinsurance and may elect to coordinate with CMCS on decisions
and protocols for either an eligibility assessment or eligibility determination model in the Federally-
