Whitepaper: Resume Writing 101

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

A resume is a carefully designed advertisement that presents qualifications to prospective employers and graduate schools. The format and content of a resume can vary in some industries and cultures, check with a career professional about the standards for the industry or country. This white paper explains the guidelines for writing a resume.


Whitepaper: Functionality-Based Service Matchmaking for Service-Oriented Architecture

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

Service matchmaking is a basic feature of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). In this research paper, a semantic-based flexible service matchmaking approach is presented to efficiently identifying functionality-compatible services. This approach utilizes SAWOWL- S to specify the service advertisements and service discovery requests. The functionality-compatibility of a service to a request is defined on their parameters and conditions. Experimental results are given to illustrate that this approach can efficiently generate precise service matchmaking results.


Whitepaper: Performance Analysis of IOP Processor (XScale) for SAN/NAS Application

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

Effectively managing vast amounts of storage has created the need for a robust, scalable and manageable external storage solution. The storage-area network (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS) were designed to meet these needs. In NAS and SAN environment, data is transferred from a server to the storage subsystem, and IOP subsystem memory is used as cache to store data temporarily before writing to the storage devices. This paper studies the current performance capabilities and enhancements required to achieve the RAID performance and data protection for applications running on an Intel XScale I/O 80219 General Purpose PCI Processor.


Whitepaper: A Comprehensive TCP Stochastic Model

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

Understanding the nature of TCP behavior is important in order to properly engineer, operate, and assess the performance of Internet, as well as to properly design and implement future networks. This paper highlights a complete and more precise TCP performance prediction model in terms of packet loss rate, round-trip time, and maximum congestion window size.


Whitepaper: Consumer-Centric Service-Oriented Architecture: A New Approach

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

This research paper from Arizona State University extends the current Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to introduce a Consumer-Centric Service-Oriented Architecture (CCSOA) paradigm. The current SOA is producer-centric, because the basic idea is that service providers publish services that they produce and let the consumers to search available services to compose their applications. CCSOA focuses on consumers’ publishing the services they need and even the applications they need. The paper presents the concepts, architecture, enabling techniques, and illustrative examples.


Whitepaper: Purposeful Mentoring As The Foundation Of Administrator Professional Development

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

The purpose of this paper is to explore the effects of purposeful mentoring on four Mentoring pairs (eight people) that have been involved in the Learner Centered Leadership (LCL) program. Research literature defines mentoring as an extended Process of personal and professional growth. Mentoring is also about effective Communication that embraces listening and providing constructive feedback (Harkins, 1999; Starratt, 2003). The overall goal of the purposeful mentoring Component of the LCL program appeared to be successful.


Whitepaper: The Effect Of Public Funding On Patterns Of Nonprofit Governance

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

The study discussed in this paper uses board governance as analytical lenses for exploring the effect of government funding on the representational capacities of nonprofit organizations. Based on a typology of governance patterns that indicate the extent to which nonprofit organizations represent community interests, it presents analyses of survey data on urban charitable organizations to show how nonprofit governance patterns are associated with levels of government funding as well as other environmental and contextual factors. The findings suggest that government funding reliance decreases the likelihood that a nonprofit organization would develop a strong, community board.


Whitepaper: A Scenario-Based Service-Oriented Rapid Multi-Agent Distributed Modeling and Simulation Framework for SoS/SOA and Its Applications

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

Recent advances in computer and information technologies accelerate the construction of systems of ever-increasing complexity. The ability to analyze and manage the complex systems is not as fast as the system evolution unfortunately. Simulation modeling and analyses is a practical way for assessing the performance of such complex systems since analytical approach may not available exist. This research paper presents a scenario-driven multi-agent framework for rapid simulation generation and verification. Specifically, this framework has uses a formalized scenario model, and in this model each scenario is specified according to the ACDATE (Actors, Conditions, Data, Actions, Timing, and Events) model.


Whitepaper: A Service-Oriented Architecture-Driven Community of Interest Model

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

This paper proposes a dynamically extensible Community of Interest model running on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). A layered architecture has been used for the COI model. Each COI focuses on a specific area of applications or data, has deductive capabilities, filtering and classification rules for its specific data. Every COI group is implemented as a service using SOA, and thus the overall COI system is survivable of attacks or failures. Each service is specified using its ISC specifications. The objectives of agile C2 such as superior decision making, shared under-standing, dispersed command can be realized using the proposed model.


Whitepaper: Testability of Software in Service-Oriented Architecture

by Arizona State UniversityJan 01, 2008

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a system architecture in which a collection of loosely coupled services communicate with each other using standard interfaces and message-exchanging protocols. The paper proposes four testability evaluation criteria for SOA software. It suggests several testability evaluation criteria for SOA software, which serves as a indication for both service providers and application builders to evaluate the test support to SOA software.
