"If this book had been available to Healthcare.gov's contractors, and they read and followed its life cycle performance processes, there would not have been the enormous problems apparent in that application. In my 40+ years of experience in building leading-edge products, poor performance is the single most frequent cause of the failure or cancellation of software-intensive projects. This book provides techniques and skills necessary to implement performance engineering at the beginning of a project and manage it throughout the product's life cycle. I cannot recommend it highly enough." - Don Shafer, CSDP, Technical Fellow, Athens Group, LLC Poor performance is a frequent cause of software project failure. Performance engineering can be extremely challenging. In Foundations of Software and System Performance Engineering, leading software performance expert Dr. André Bondi helps you create effective performance requirements up front, and then architect, develop, test, and deliver systems that meet them. Drawing on many years of experience at Siemens, AT&T Labs, Bell Laboratories, and two startups, Bondi offers practical guidance for every software stakeholder and development team participant. He shows you how to define and use metrics; plan for diverse workloads; evaluate scalability, capacity, and responsiveness; and test both individual components and entire systems. Throughout, Bondi helps you link performance engineering with everything else you do in the software life cycle, so you can achieve the right performance-now and in the future-at lower cost and with less pain. This guide will help you • Mitigate the business and engineering risk associated with poor system performance • Specify system performance requirements in business and engineering terms • Identify metrics for comparing performance requirements with actual performance • Verify the accuracy of measurements • Use simple mathematical models to make predictions, plan performance tests, and anticipate the impact of changes to the system or the load placed upon it • Avoid common performance and scalability mistakes • Clarify business and engineering needs to be satisfied by given levels of throughput and response time • Incorporate performance engineering into agile processes • Help stakeholders of a system make better performance-related decisions • Manage stakeholders' expectations about system performance throughout the software life cycle, and deliver a software product with quality performance André B. Bondi is a senior staff engineer at Siemens Corp., Corporate Technologies in Princeton, New Jersey. His specialties include performance requirements, performance analysis, modeling, simulation, and testing. Bondi has applied his industrial and academic experience to the solution of performance issues in many problem domains. In addition to holding a doctorate in computer science and a master's in statistics, he is a Certified Scrum Master.

Online teaching (OT) is an emerging trend in Pakistan with approximately ten years background. During this brief time period online pedagogy has faced many challenges to establish itself as an equal counterpart of conventional classroom teaching. Whether it has achieved its desired outcomes or not is a debatable issue. This case study has been conducted to examine this very issue of the effectiveness of online teaching by narrowing it down to the subject of Business and Technical English (BTE) at the graduate and postgraduate levels at the one and only major online teaching institution of Pakistan i.e., Virtual University. The study explores how effective is the learning of Business and Technical communication Skills in English language that comes from online mode of instruction and to what extent it leads to proficiency in documentation for professional purposes. The study makes use of the Connectivist theory by Siemens (2004) to reach its desired findings. However, to improve certain limitations, the research also suggests some recommendations. The study further leads to the development and implementation of remedial strategies towards effective communication and writing skills.

68,38 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book introduces the integrated management concept of "Sustainable Value Creation", which delivers sustainability 'inside-out' from the core business. It is based on the premise that sustainability can provide a platform for growth, if it is implemented in a company's products, services and supply chains (combined also known as the 'Value Chain'). Managing the Value Chain from the outset with a sustainability mindset subsequently allows profitable economical, ecological and societal growth. It combines the need for increased sustainability and its implementation in the operations of a company. The book addresses the following issues: How do economic, environmental and societal factors impact the value-creation process of a company? What requirements and expectations need to be met to balance economic, ecologic and societal value creation? What are the building blocks and measures that can be utilized on the journey towards building a sustainable value chain? What benefits can be achieved through sustainable value chains? What are the practical examples of sustainable value chains in leading companies that can inspire others to follow? The book includes contributions from the following organisations and companies: Beiersdorf, SAP, Klenk und Hoursch, VAUDE, Infineon Technologies, Independent Capital Management, BASF, Nanogate, the Federal German Council for Sustainable Development, Henkel, Symrise, shared.value.chain, Siemens, Fairphone and Thin Air Factory

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Physical Geography, Geomorphology, Environmental Studies, grade: 75%, The University of Liverpool (Management School), course: MBA, language: English, abstract: Issues like climate change, human rights abuses and poverty dominate our media. Often blamed for responsibility for many of the world's urgent problems, companies are increasingly expected to address them. The term 'Corporate Social Responsibility' has therefore become synonymous for initiatives towards sustainable development. This report was established to examine how far corporate social responsibility and sustainable development of multinational corporations has been practiced in recent years, specifically the German Siemens Group and Russia's Gazprom which are the subjects of this investigation. The paper first highlights some key issues of the stakeholder theory and stakeholder salience model, which is then applied to determine the companies' key stakeholders. The most important ones are analysed and compared in terms of power, legitimacy and urgency. Section two deals with the evaluation of the companies' responsible business approaches, pointing out the extent to which these have increased or decreased and the underlying reasons effecting change. The final section seeks to identify the substance of the described approaches by applying the Ponte et.al typology and finally analysing them using the two contrasting perspectives 'Good for Business' and 'Critical Development'. Findings in section one show that classifying and addressing stakeholders is fundamentally through managerial perception and the variable constitutional contexts in which the companies are enacted. The results also reveal that Siemens has to deal cautiously with a wider group of stakeholders than Gazprom, due to the different constitutional situations in Germany and Russia. Gazprom is most influenced by its main-stakeholder, the Russian Federation, whereas the power of other stakeholder groups is relatively low. The investigation of Siemens's socially responsible business approaches in section two revealed that the increasing awareness of CSR in Germany and Siemens's corruption affair were the main drivers intensifying their recent business approaches. CSR in Russia is still immature; consequently Gazprom's initiatives are limited. However, CSR is expected to increase in Russia and Gazprom as a global player must pursue international standards.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Essen, course: International Management, language: English, abstract: The identification, analysis and evaluation of market entry barriers for German small and medium-sized companies in India are the objective of this bachelor thesis and will be developed within six chapters. Moreover, recommendations to minimize or overcome those barriers are provided. Small and medium-sized companies are increasingly confronted with new issues, but also with chances due to the persistent internationalisation of the markets. New markets are not only entered to guarantee existing competitive advantages and to expand. Furthermore, companies can benefit from substantial incomes and synergy effects. Entering new markets harbour different risks whereupon the market environment such as customers, products, competitors as well as fiscal and legal conditions needs to be analysed. In comparison to large concerns, small and medium-sized companies are facing issues of less financial and human resources, absent experience abroad, the ignorance of the respective national language and costs for the international market development. On the other hand, small and medium-sized companies are using individual manufacturing processes or design niche products to compete in international markets.India is characterized by its huge complexity of different races, languages, caste and religions as well as of its ancient cultural and social history. Detailed knowledge about the Indian culture and market is required to increase the success when entering the Indian market. The provided overview of those conditions is necessary to understand the characteristics of the Indian market and to consider this knowledge in daily business operations. The topic 'market entry' is covered in numerous reference books and studies about the market entry in India can also be found. These studies are discussing the market entry of big companies such as of Siemens AG and Robert Bosch GmbH in India, but issues of small and medium-sized companies are neglected. This academic void is closed by this bachelor thesis with the help of the implementation of questionnaires and interviews. Based on these primary sources, market entry barriers for German small and medium-sized companies in India are identified as well as analyzed and recommendations to reduce or even overcome them are presented.
