Virtual Case File

...IT projects, its Sentinel case management system, into a model of success for other agencies? Sentinel and its predecessor case management system have been a symbol of all that's wrong with government IT--over budget, behind schedule, and short on functionality. Sentinel grew out of an earlier failure, the FBI's Virtual Case File system, started in 2001 and scrapped four years--and $170 million--later. Last September, after a partially completed Sentinel had been put on hold, FBI CIO Chad Fulgham decided to take over management of the project from lead contractor Lockheed Martin. Fulgham, a former senior VP of IT with Lehman Brothers who joined the FBI in December of 2008, outlined a plan to use agile development. For the past eight months, a small team of FBI technologists have been developing "working software" in intervals of a few weeks, then rolling that into bigger releases every two or three months. Speaking at InformationWeek's Government IT Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., on May 5, Fulgham and FBI CTO Jeff Johnson, another former Lehman Brothers IT manager, explained how they shifted the Sentinel project from traditional waterfall application development--where requirements are established at the beginning and can take years to deliver. Fulgham said a "system of record" will be delivered this summer, with a broader release in September. FBI agents and other employees will use Sentinel to manage the information associated with cases. Capabilities include......

File Sharing and the Revenue of the Creative Industries

...File Sharing and the Revenue of the Creative Industries Introduction File sharing hosts, who provide online storage to share various files ripped from media like recorded music, films, and books, have been considered as a type of internet piracy that threatens the creative industries, including films, music, software, and books. (Van Eijk, 2011) However, after the shutdown of Megaupload, one of the most popular file hosting site, a series of ripple effect happened, causing several other file sharing hosts either deleted their files, or set up an access restriction. (Peukert and Claussen, 2012) It appeared to be an impact on the internet piracy and the revenue of the creative industries would go up — But it didn’t. According to Peukert and Claussen (2012), for example, the revenue of the film industry have decrease ever since Megaupload’s shutdown. The purpose of the essay is trying to analyze the relationship between the internet piracy via file sharing hosts and the revenue of the creative industries — how does the former interact with the latter — and a solution to resolve the declined revenue of the creative industries. Internet Piracy and File Sharing As its name suggests, “Internet Piracy” refers to manufacturing and distributing unauthorized copies, ie. “pirate copies”, on the Internet. (Panethiere, 2005) While the term “File Sharing” means to share a file with another person physically, such as storing and distributing a file in a CD, DVD, or a drive, or via......

File Sharing Technology

...File sharing technology is the process of sharing or distributing the digitally stored information over internet such as software, computer programs, multimedia, electronic books through different technologies. Most common way of sharing technologies are peer-peer sharing, bit torrents, file hosting services. Now-a-days, it has become very easy to download pirated software, multimedia using pirate bay, bit torrents, file hosting websites. In 1999, Napster was the first centralized unstructured peer-peer sharing technology which has central server for indexing and peer discovery. In late 2000’s Gnutella and eDonkey2000 were released, where Napster was facing litigation. In 2001, Kazaa and Poisned were released for Mac. Napster was shut down by a court order. From 2002 through 2003, a number of BitTorrent services were established, including Suprnova.org, isoHunt, TorrentSpy, and The Pirate Bay. In 2002, the RIAA was filing lawsuits against Kazaa users (Wikipedia, 2013). Britain's High Court agreed with Sony and eight other record labels that the Pirate Bay trespassed on copyright. This gave the labels permission under section 97A of the Copyrights, Designs and Patents Act to get an injunction on Britain's six biggest Internet Services Providers, ordering the likes of BSkyB, BT Group and Virgin Media to block access to The Pirate Bay (Olson, 2012). A court-ordered blockade of The Pirate Bay in the U.K. has had little effect on overall file-sharing, according to a BBC report...

...Case Study Analysis Paper 1: A Tale of Two Coaches Clive S. Choat Ken Blanchard College of Business, MGT-600 10 December 2013 Case Study Analysis Paper 1: A Tale of Two Coaches Based on our learning from week one of our class, the purpose of this paper is to discuss the leadership perspectives manifested in both Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski, coaches who have made significant marks in their field in college basketball. I hope to be able to identify the power bases both coaches rely upon, as well as whether their actions are more aligned with either a managerial role or leadership role. In addition, I hope to identify how significant the leadership traits have influenced their leadership, based on the five-factor personality model from our textbook readings, and has this affected the performance effectiveness of the coaches. I begin my report with some background information about the two coaches. Bobby Knight is the former head basketball coach for the United States Military Academy (USMA), Indiana University and Texas Tech University. Coach Knight is best described as a serious taskmaster who ran his team through the use of strict discipline, fear and intimidation. His aggressive style cost him his position after a twenty-nine year successful career at Indiana University for physically assaulting a player, the final straw in a string of violent actions he had displayed during games. In counterpoint, Mike Krzyzewski, who had served as a player......

Pepsico Case Study File

...The Business Case: PepsiAmericas (PAS) is the world’s second largest manufacturer and distributor of Pepsi beverages, operating in nineteen mostly Midwestern states in the U.S. (69% of sales), central and Eastern Europe (26% of Sales) and the Caribbean (5% of sales). Net sales in 2008 totaled nearly $5 billion or 20% of PepsiCo’s total US beverage sales. In 2009 a recession hit the U.S. economy, but PepsiAmericas was also faced with two more important long-term challenges: (1) a declining U.S. market for carbonated soft drinks, and (2) increasingly powerful retailers who were squeezing PAS profit margins. In addition, PepsiAmericas product line had moved from 35-40 products in the mid-1990’s to nearly 400 products by 2009. These developments forced PepsiAmericas to embrace a completely new operating model. In the past, distribution was handled by the local delivery person, who “owned” a particular route of retail customer stores. The delivery person would load his/her truck in anticipation of what was needed at each of his/her assigned locations. Over time, the delivery person knew what to expect and could pretty much address customer needs on a day-to-day basis. Each delivery person worked within one of seven regional PepsiAmericas organizations (business units), each servicing its own list of customers and tracking its own data. This old regional system required contracts by store with different PepsiAmericas regions servicing different outlets of the same......

File Sharing: What and How Effects on Music Sales.

...File Sharing: what and how Effects on music sales. Abstract File sharing is the practice of distributing or providing access to digitally stored information, such as computer programs, multimedia(audio, images and video), documents or electronic books. It may be implemented through a variety of ways.In this paper we are discuss common methods of storage, transmission and dispersion include manual sharing utilizing removable media, centralized servers on computer networks,World Wide Web-based hyperlinked documents, and the use of distributed peer-to-peer networking.We consider the specific case of file sharing and it’s effects on legal sales of music . 1. Introduction Files were first exchanged on removable media.Computers were able to accessremotefilesusing filesystem mounting and FTP servers.The mp3 encoding, which was standardized in 1991 and which substantially reduced the size of audio files, grew to widespread use in the late 1990s. In 1998, MP3.com and Audiogalaxy were established, The Digital Millennium Copyright Act was unanimously passed, and the first mp3 player devices were launched. In June 1999, Napster was released as an unstructured centralized peer-to-peer system, requiring a central server for indexing and peer discovery. It is generally credited as being the first peer-to-peer file sharing system. Gnutella, released in March, was the first decentralized file sharing network. In the gnutella network, all connecting software was considered......

...Case Study Report IBM’s Knowledge Management Proposal For The Ontario Ministry of Education Name: Nancy (Huinan) Li ID: 5000520 Email: huinan1988@gmail.com Module 5 (Session 7) June 03, 2014 Executive Summary In the early 2000s, the Ontario Ministry of Education contracted IBM in order to find a solution to its poor knowledge management. As a result, Kathryn Everest, a knowledge management consultant at IBM Canada, developed three options that would be beneficial to the organization and possibly resolve the problems. The three alternatives included implementing document management, cultivating communities of practice and creation of an expert directory. After much time spent determining which option, or combination of options, would be most beneficial as well as the best implementation plan. I recommend EDU to implement a document management system. Issues Identification The Ontario Ministry of Education (EDU) has a couple of issues but one of the fore running issues is electronic data. Having the same document on more than one computer’s hard drive, or having up to 20 different version of that document should be unwarranted. Another key issue is knowledge sharing as more than one person could be doing the same research. Having more than one person doing the same research without each other’s knowledge is inefficient and unacceptable business practice. The main issue in this case is the erroneous storage of the electronic data that’s available......

Sharing Files with Nfs

...Lawrence Carr NT1430 Unit 7 Sharing Files with NFS Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1984, allowing a user on a client computer to access files over a network much like local storage is accessed. NFS, like many other protocols, builds on the Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Call (ONC RPC) system. The Network File System is an open standard defined in RFCs, allowing anyone to implement the protocol. NFS is the most-known service using remote procedure call (RPC). It is an excellent way of sharing files between Linux and other UNIX systems. NFS also allows for machines to mount without authentication, at boot, which is great if you have a cluster of systems or if you want to use a centralized home directory system (using an NFS-mounted directory for home directories to keep your configurations and files identical on multiple systems). The computer where directory located is called the server and computers or devices connecting to that server are called clients. Clients usually 'mount' the shared directory to make it a part of their own directory structure. NFS is perhaps best for more 'permanent' network mounted directories such as /home directories or regularly accessed shared resources. If you want a network share that guest users can easily connect to, Samba is more suited. This is because tools exist more readily across old and proprietary operating systems to temporarily mount and detach......

Vcf Virtual Case File

...The FBI's VCF (Virtual Case Files) IT project is one of the most highly publicized software failure in U.S history. The main goal of the FBI’s VCF project was to automate the FBI's paper driven work environment, allow agents and intelligence analysts to share vital investigative information, and replace the obsolete Automated Case Support (ACS) system. The FBI outsourced the code writing for the VCF project in the year 2001 to contractor Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) based out of San Diego,CA. SAIC delivered 700,000 lines of code that was overly bug ridden, and functionally off target from what the FBI expected, that the FBI had to terminate the $170 million project which included $105 million worth of unusable code. Various government audits and independent reports show that the FBI did not have the proper IT management and technical expertise, and should share the blame for the VCF project failure. At the termination of the project in 2005, Glenn A. Fine, the U.S. Department of Justice's inspector general, described the main factors that contributed to the VCF's failure. His list included the following factors: poorly defined and slowly evolving design requirements; overly ambitious schedules; and the lack of a plan to guide hardware purchases, network deployments, and software development for the bureau. The FBI announced that it would buy off-the-shelf software to be installed in phases over the next four years from 2005-2009....

Merage Case File

...________ Answer Sheet for Merage Capital Budgeting Case: Q. 1: Free Cash Flow: (1 Point) Free cash flow is determined by adding up all the company’s incoming cash and then subtract the cash that the company is obliged to payout, which includes all expenses, debt service, preferred dividend and capital expenditures related to the fiscal period. The result tells us how much cash was left over or how short of cash the company was at the end of the fiscal period. Q. 2: Land: (1 Point) Nothing, as it is mentioned that the value of the land will not be significantly different after 5 years so there is no opportunity cost. The center can sale the land after 5 years. The cost has already been incurred so need not be part of current cash outflow Q. 3: Allocated Overhead: (1 Point) According to the with/without principle, these allocated costs are irrelevant because the Center will have to pay them even if the project is not undertaken .Further there are no incremental admin cost pertains to the project arise so no allocated expenses will be included in Cash outflow.

Limewire: the Rise and Fall of File Sharing

...Limewire: The Rise and Fall of File Sharing When I was in middle school, the biggest way to get music for free was a website named Limewire. Nothing was more exciting than to be able to hear a song on the radio then go home and download it to our desktops. Also cool, was the fact that if one of us didn’t have a song, our friend could simply “burn” it onto a c.d. for us. That was the only way we knew how to get music, aside from going out and buying the whole album. Apple’s iTunes was just starting out and iPods were just being created. Limewire was the way to go. Little did we know that Limewire was illegal and costing singers, songwriters, labels, and everyone associated with just one song, huge amounts of money. Limewire was created in the spring of 2000. While Limewire seemed to go unnoticed for a while by the big wigs, when the site gained traction and became popular, those big wigs at the labels started to pay attention. In a 2003, South Carolina Senator, Lindsey Graham, along with five other influential senators, sent a letter asking for “voluntary actions that will help reduce illegal file sharing on the networks”, to the CEO’s of the top P2P sites including P2P United. P2P United was a lobbying firm that represented Limewire at the time. Sen. Graham also stated in the letter, that the companies “have a legal and moral obligation to conform to copyright laws.” In rebuttal to the bi-partisan letter, P2P United executive, Adam Eisgrau said “Death for P2P......

File Sharing Morality

...Is the free sharing of copyrighted material on the internet a morally acceptable action? Can we apply different moral philosophies to such a modern problem? In recent history, with the advent of peer-to-peer sharing programs and the free availability of many different types of media on the internet, the morality of the sharing of copyrighted material has come into question. In order to gain understanding on issue, we can apply several universal moral theories, including the Kantian, Utilitarian, and Rights Ethics philosophies. There are many users of the internet today, and a majority of them participate in file-sharing via the use of a wide variety of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. These people believe that what they are doing is not wrong, but rather one of their rights as consumers of media. In contrast to this, many people of the movie and music industries believe that their creative works are protected property and that file sharing takes away from the benefits that they receive from those works. By having the consumer purchase the media, it gives the creator both money to create more work and the added affirmation to generate more creations. This situation has arisen due to several factors; these factors include technological advances that provide the ability for free sharing of media, the opinions of several creators driving the arguments against sharing, and the wide popularity of the internet. Napster was one of the first widely used free-sharing networks. In June......
