This research paper discusses the two-step procedure (""Adaptive"" learning and ""Proactive"" CRM decisions) and three-components for customer-centric CRM, adaptive learning (of customer individual preference), forward-looking (into future marketing consequences of current CRM interventions), and optimization (to optimally balance cost and benefit). CRM interventions are formulated as solutions to a stochastic dynamic programming problem under demand uncertainty in which company learns about the evolution of customer demand as well as the dynamic effect of its marketing interventions, and make optimal CRM decisions to balance off the cost of interventions and the long-term payoff with the goal of maximizing each customer�s long-term profit.
This research paper explains technical interviews, a technical interview consists of a series of questions designed to test the quantitative knowledge in major such as programming, algorithms, data structures, circuits, operating systems, etc. and ability to solve problems. It illustrates: types of technical interviews; goal of the technical interview; should students expect a technical interview?; and how should be prepare for a technical interview?.
This research paper illustrates the tips for Interview sessions, and Pre-Interviews. It says; compile a list of personal strengths and past accomplishments to boost the confidence. Identify and evaluate education, experiences, skills, accomplishments, strengths and weaknesses. Note which qualities one want to convey to the interviewer. Also note those one does not want to discuss during the interview.
This paper published by Carnegie Mellon University helps one to understand how to negotiating a job offer. Author explains before one can assess a job offer, they must make sure they have information about the market. One should also know the employers compensation guidelines. Keep in mind that if one decides to negotiate; job offer will not be rescinded by the employer - even if the employer decides not to negotiate. Also, if a position is acceptable to one as it is offered, one should not feel like one must negotiate.
Transferable Skills are non-job specific skills which can be used in different occupations. One may have developed them through course work, jobs, internships, volunteering, or just plain life experience. By communicating their transferable skills effectively, one can enhance their marketability and open up to a larger sector of the job market. This research paper from Carnegie Mellon University is designed to help one identify, promote and develop their transferable skills.
Employment letters are an important communication tool and most job search campaigns cannot be conducted without them. When sending a letter, students should follow the basic business letter format described in this section. There has been a dramatic increase of letters and resumes sent through email and the Internet. Regardless of the communication mode being used, strong letters will produce a positive first impression. This white paper from Carnegie Mellon University provides guidance regarding writing Employment Letters.
Java is essentially a safe language: there is no explicit pointer manipulation; array and string bounds are automatically checked; attempts at referencing a null pointer are trapped; the arithmetic operations are well defined and platform independent, as are the type conversions. The built-in bytecode verifier ensures that these checks are always in place. This paper briefly describes these potential software vulnerabilities in the version of Java, Java 5.
This research paper from Carnegie Mellon University conducted a basic numerical analysis of the Macintosh OS X Darwin kernel and Ubuntu Linux 2.6 kernel by testing several different aspects inherent to the operating system. To exercise file I/O handling they examined the repeated creation of small text files. They also examined disk cache behavior by attempting to overflow the cache with junk data. To test memory duress response, they exposed the kernel to malignant processes and analyzed the resultant data.
This paper examines the relationship between Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and quality attributes. Because software architecture is the bridge between mission/business goals and a software-intensive system, and quality attribute requirements drive software architecture design, it is important to understand how SOAs support these requirements. The paper gives a short introduction to SOAs and outlines some of the main business goals that may lead an organization to choose an SOA to design and implement a system.
The basic premises of industrial ecology are resource conservation and pollution prevention, and achieving this on a system wide basis. Systems thinking mean that they think of the product in terms of the materials extraction - refining - manufacturing - distribution - consumption - disposal scheme as they plan to produce it. One can think of the different levels of the system at which industrial ecology could operate.
