In Vietnam, after the conversion from the command economy to market economy, the local enterprises faced many difficulties in strategic management. Businesses need to research, develop a strategic tool to have enough flexibility to respond to market changes. A business strategy must be formulated on the basis of analysis and forecast opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses of the enterprise, helping businesses obtain general information about the external and internal business environment.
Viettel Group is one successful model of change to the market economy.
Broadly defined, Electronic Government (e-Government) is the use of ICT:
- to promote more efficient and effective government’s activities,
- to facilitate accessibility to government services,
- to allow greater public access to information, and
- to make government more accountable to citizens.
e-Government involves delivering services via the Internet, telephone,
electronic media, community centers (self-service
or facilitated by others), wireless devices or other communications systems
John Murphy is a very popular author, columnist, and speaker on the subject of Technical Analysis. StockCharts.com is very glad to include his Ten Laws of Technical Trading in our educational material. If you find this information useful, please visit the MurphyMorris web site for additional examples of John's insight.
Synthesis has a central role in the development of Science especially in Chemistry.
The strategies adopted in synthesis of molecules and materials have undergone
considerable changes in recent times and it was felt that it may be necessary to
assess and assimilate information on this topic in a single place. Though, no
originality is claimed to the contents on this topic, the very fact that the available
information on this topic is available in one place itself is considered to be a major
Information technology surrounds you-on your campus and in local businesses.
When you order merchandise over the telephone, chances are your sales represen
tative is using an information system to check inventory and to trigger the ship
ment of your goods. Increasingly you will order products using the Internet, dis
pensing with the telephone and becoming a participant in electronic commerce.
When you use an automatic teller machine, make an airline reservation, or rent a...
Focusing on the rich biodiversity of Costa Rica, the contributors demonstrate the use of geographic information systems (GIS) to enhance conservation efforts. They give an overview of the spatial nature of conservation and management and the current status of digital mapping in Costa Rica; a review of the basic principles behind digital mapping technologies; a series of case studies using these technologies at a variety of scales and for a range of conservation and management activities; and the results of the Costa Rican gap analysis project....
ESSAYS ON THE DESIGN OF MONETARY POLICY WITH INCOMPLETE INFORMATION Evidence from the NELS and from high school completion rates
The SAT data are uniquely valuable for my empirical strategy, both because they
span a large fraction of metropolitan high schools and because they describe an outcome
that is an important factor in families evaluations of schools. Nevertheless, it remains
possible that selection into SAT-taking biases the above results.
That rapid globalization is taking place in businesses around the world is beyond
dispute. If multinational firms are to prosper now and in the future, their managers
must be able to function in a global context—formulating and implementing strategies,
inventing and utilizing technologies, and creating and coordinating information.
International assignments are the single most powerful means for developing
future global leaders.
We discuss the use of social networks in implementing viral
marketing strategies. While influence maximization has
been studied in this context (see Chapter 24 of ), we
study revenue maximization, arguably, a more natural objective.
In our model, a buyer’s decision to buy an item is
influenced by the set of other buyers that own the item and
the price at which the item is offered.
We focus on algorithmic question of finding revenue maximizing
marketing strategies. When the buyers are completely
symmetric, we can find the optimal marketing strategy
in polynomial time.
Given these considerations, solving the routing problem can be seen as a
choice among three alternatives. Common to the three alternatives is the need
to broadcast some piece of information to all the servers in the network, where
the broadcast is required by the lack of a priori knowledge of locality. The ﬁrst
alternative broadcasts notiﬁcations, which implies that notiﬁcation matching
is performed at each local server based on the subscriptions received at that
Toxicogenomics, the study of how genomes respond to exposure to toxi-
cants, may ultimately hold the promise of detecting changes in the expres-
sion of a person's genes if he or she is exposed to these toxicants. As the
technology rapidly develops, it is critical that scientists and the public
communicate about the promises and limitations of this new field. Commu-
nicating technical information to the public about a developing science can
be challenging, particularly when the applications of that science are not yet
This paper explores the role of information retrieval in answering “relationship” questions, a new class complex information needs formally introduced in TREC 2005. Since information retrieval is often an integral component of many question answering strategies, it is important to understand the impact of different termbased techniques.
Corpus-based grammar induction generally relies on hand-parsed training data to learn the structure of the language. Unfortunately, the cost of building large annotated corpora is prohibitively expensive. This work aims to improve the induction strategy when there are few labels in the training data. We show that the most informative linguistic constituents are the higher nodes in the parse trees, typically denoting complex noun phrases and sentential clauses. They account for only 20% of all constituents. ...
(BQ)Ebook Killer Soccer Formations, Positions & Strategies has been designed specifically for providing information on the various soccer strategies, including the offensive strategies, defensive strategies, indoor soccer strategies, and the different soccer formations. The easy-to-follow strategies have been complemented with diagrams to help you understand the nuances of soccer coaching effectively.
The study focuses on the use of information systems in the Heavy Engineering industry in South Africa and the decision to make, buy or rent information systems. Special focus was placed on the factors that influence the decision to make, buy or rent information systems. It is undeniable that changes in the competitive environment, such as technological advances and globalisation, are driving organisations toward new ways of operating. In striving to become flexible, lean, and more competitive, organisations have been increasingly swift to externalise support service functions.
We present a prototype natural-language problem-solving application for a financial services call center, developed as part of the Amitiés multilingual human-computer dialogue project. Our automated dialogue system, based on empirical evidence from real call-center conversations, features a datadriven approach that allows for mixed system/customer initiative and spontaneous conversation. Preliminary evaluation results indicate efficient dialogues and high user satisfaction, with performance comparable to or better than that of current conversational travel information systems. ...
Strategies are proposed for combining different kinds of constraints in declarative grammars with a detachable layer of control information. The added control information is the basis for parametrized dynamically controlled linguistic deduction, a form of linguistic processing that permits the implementation of plausible linguistic performance models without giving up the declarative formulation of linguistic competence.
