Abstract
The success of cloud computing as a platform for deploying webapplications has led to a deluge of applications characterized by small data footprints but unpredictable access patterns. An autonomic and scalable multitenant database management system (DBMS) is therefore an important component of the software stack for platforms supporting these applications. Elastic load balancing is a key requirement for effective resource utilization and operational cost minimization. Efficient techniques for database migration are thus essential for elasticity in a multitenant DBMS. Our vision is a DBMS where multitenancy is viewed as virtualization in the database layer, and migration is a first class notion with the same stature as scalability, availability etc. This paper serves as the first step in this direction. We analyze the various models of database multitenancy, formalize the forms of migration, evaluate the offthe-shelf migration techniques, and identify the design space and research goals for an autonomic and elastic multitenant database.

Project Management for Information Systems

...Project Management for Information Systems Project Management for Information Systems Abstract Information systems (IS) projects are vulnerable to resource cutbacks and the increasing complexity of systems and advances in information technology make finding the right personnel difficult and the associated development costs high. Good project management is essential for success. Some alignment methodologies include IBM's business systems planning (BSP), Robert Holland's strategic systems planning, James Martin's (1989) information engineering and method/1 from Anderson Consulting. Critical success factors (Rockart, 1979) methodology focuses on identifying key information needs of senior executives and building information systems around those key needs. Williams, (1997) identified four steps to system planning. Earl (1989) proposed five alternate strategy frameworks which project managers should consider when deciding how the system will enhance the business function. Standard business......

Project Management Final Paper

...1. Project Definition Form 1.1 Project Title Biaño’s Pizzaderia Inventory Management System 1.2 Project Context On March 27, 2007, the friends and neighbors of Alberto Biaño in Cebu City were treated to the first serving of Mr. Biaño's famous pizza.  This core group became his first loyal customers, as news spread far and wide of the pizza with the great homemade taste that everyone could afford.  Inspired by the resounding success of his initial offering, Alberto Biaño continued to develop his recipes to improve his pizzas' quality and taste until a perfect blend of crispy dough and aromatic sauce was achieved for everyone to enjoy. Another innovation was the concept of the “pizzaderia”, which  combined the words “pizza” and “carenderia”, to describe the little streetside eateries where Biaño’’s delicious but affordable pizzas were enjoyed by  people from all walks of life. Whether for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations and get-togethers, everyone wanted to make a Biaño’s pizza part of their special treat. From that little pizzaderia in Mabolo, Mr. Biaño soon branched out to Capitol, Tabunok, USC Main, Mandaue and Mactan, making Biaño's pizza a truly well-loved snack in Cebu.  Realizing the potential for such great value in an affordable price, many franchisers from different places all over the country such as Cagayan de Oro, Oroquieta City, Butuan soon became part of the Biaño's Pizzaderia family 1.3 Statement of the Problem As of now, Biano’s Pizzaderia only...

Tims System Project Management

...A decision to outsource the TIMS system would involve many considerations to be made first in order to better understand how this would impact the project. Outsourcing the TIMS project would allow for a lower cost, eliminating the need to provide the resources to complete the project. This also would free up management to better focus on core proficiencies instead of the system implementation. This would in turn help out the company by reducing the overall cost as well. However, there are also a few drawbacks to outsourcing. It’s possible we could lose our grasp on the business processes we outline for the other company to integrate into the system. It’s also possible that the implementation falls behind or that the quality of the end product could be affected as well. Finally, we may not achieve the expected results if we utilize outsourcing to move forward with the TIMS project. Once we have decided whether or not we want outsource the project, there are a few options we can utilize. First, we can fully outsource the entire project which would have a few risks due to the complexity and strict timeframe we require. It’s also possible for us to partially outsource the project which would enable to us to free up some resources but still maintain a good amount of control on the implementation. Svitla Systems Inc. would be a good potential choice for a company to utilize the outsourcing on our project. They offer dedicated software development and demonstrate a......

Role of Project Management Information Systems in Project Management.

... ROLE OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT. INTRODUCTION 1. Background of Management Information Systems The concept of Management information system (MIS) has been in existence as early as the 19th Century. Works of majorly were in the form of tabulated cards which could be counted and sorted commonly referred to us punch – cards. The punch-cards still remembered by many, could capture elements of information keyed in on punch-card machines; the cards were then processed by other machines some of which could print out results of tallies. Each card was the equivalent of what today would be called a database record, with different areas on the card treated as fields.  The initial idea of MIS was to process data from the organization and present it in the form of reports at regular basis. The system was largely capable of handling the data from collection to processing. It was more impersonal requiring each individual to pick and choose the processed data and use for his requirements. This concept was further modified when a distinction was made between data and information. Information is a product of analysis of data. However the data could be analyzed in different ways producing different shades and specification of information as a product. It therefore demanded that the system concept be an individual oriented since each individual has different orientation. This concept was further modified that the system should present information in......

Ensuring that there is a better and efficient means by which the stadium can be able to communicate to its users today informing them of the activities which do take place in the stadium such as the day of football matches has been a pretty challenge to most stadium managers. Yet communication among relevant parties is recognized as the only means by which absolute trust and effective service delivery can be achieved. Ways of handling......

The Project Management Office System

...Project Management Office The project office is the office or department responsible for establishing, maintaining, and enforcing project management processes, procedures, and standards. It provides services, support, and certification for project managers [web definition]. In a broader sense, if an organization undertakes one or two project at any given time, it may able to easily implement project management discipline. However, the larger an organization gets, and the more projects that are executed at one time, the more difficult it becomes to develop a comprehensive methodology, train everyone and enforce the consistent use of the technology on all projects. Without this consistency, the full value of implementing a common value of a project management methodology is not reached (TenStep, Inc). There are many organizations that have started realizing the potential value of establishing a Project Management Office to strengthen their competitive advantage. The PMO structures project management into an organized, systematic approach that includes the following goals (Engle, 2005): 1. Project Definition: Goals and objectives, organization charts, and roles and responsibilities are documented. Some companies adopt a charter that lays out every aspect of the project before the first dollar is spent. 2. Project planning and control: The charter documents what is to be done, and the project plan lays out how it will be accomplished. The project plan includes the schedule,......
