Affinity-Aware Cpu Modeling for Virtual Machines Using KVM

--Garima Rastogi and Rama Sushil

In this era of technological advancements, cloud computing has become a buzzword. It increases the machine potential in terms of computing, using virtualization technology. Virtualization is the core of cloud computing, in which creation of Virtual Machines (VMs) provides scalability and portability by hosting the components of different applications. Since requirements in the cloud environment are dynamic, there is always a need to move VMs within the same cloud or among different clouds. It increases the resource utilization and computational power. As there are more than one VM that can be created on one physical host, internal scheduling is needed so that a host can handle the requirements of all the VMs that are handling different applications. The paper focuses on the concept of processor affinity and discusses its usefulness in improving the performance of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with the help of an experiment. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the suitability of a VM scheduling technique so that it may be decided whether the given situation is suitable for VM scheduling using processor affinity or not. The paper also compares the performance of VM in different scenarios.

Evaluation and Analysis of Cyber Attacks in Nigeria

--Adejoro Cornelius Onimisi and Ogwueleka Francisca Nonyelum

In recent years, the advent of Information Technology (IT) in carrying out operation on large amount of data and interconnectivity has led to tremendous increase in security threats. Networks have become a central feature in many people’s lives, both for personal and business use. The internet is a network of networks and so each of those networks needs some security features in place. In Nigeria, large-scale cyber attacks, designed to take down or compromise national infrastructure, are suspected to have been carried out by individuals and some groups. This disturbing trend of cybercrimes and related insecurity calls for pressing need for joint efforts to protect Nigeria’s cyberspace. The paper evaluates the cyber attacks in Nigeria with particular interest on banking. Sample questions were collected and analyzed. The results showed that Nigerian banking industry needs to do a lot to improve the security measures as most customers are either victims of cybercrime or vulnerable to one.

Educational Data Mining: A Review

--Smeet M Thakrar, Navjyotsinh Jadeja and Nikunj Vadher

Educational Data Mining (EDM) is a field of analysis and research where various data mining tools and techniques are used to optimize the applications in education sector. The paper presents the techniques used in EDM, the general idea and the applications of every technique. It presents some factors that affects the education sector and classifies them according to their importance and the area influence. The paper identifies all these factors and their influence on the aspects of education. Combining the tools, techniques and factors as parameters, the paper aims at developing a framework to analyze the enormous data from the education sector and provide solutions and reports for specific aspects of education sector such as student’s performance and placements. This framework will be a useful tool for educational institutions to monitor and improve their working. It is also an integrated package of applications that offers many solutions in the field of education sector.

Adoption of Mobile Wallets in India: An Analysis

--Saurabh Mittal and Vikas Kumar

Usage of mobile phones in emerging economies presents unique opportunities to businesses. Mobile phones provide innovative solutions to online payments and in-store purchases. The acceptance of mobile payments also helps the marketers in promoting their offerings. The analysis of spends by customers can help identify their future requirements. The customers in India had been wary of payments by credit cards and debit cards. The attractive deals, discounts and cashbacks have attracted more customers to pay via mobile wallet (m-wallet). The Government of India is helping in the growth of fin-tech industry with various incentives and initiatives. The paper analyzes the various factors affecting the adoption of m-wallets by Indian customers. It also analyzes the types of transactions carried out by the customers and their preferences while selecting an m-wallet for payments.

Application of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in 21st Century Military Sector

--Adamu Sulaiman Usman and Ogwueleka Francisca Nonyelum

Owing to the increased reliance on software applications and the need to evaluate and conduct projects in a timely manner with required results, the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) has become essential to achieving the right products in the requisite period. The military carries out various projects ranging from hardware military equipment to software applications. The paper focuses on the application of SDLC in the military sector. In order to achieve this, secondary research was carried out to get a view of solutions used in the military sector. The authors aim to highlight the common SDLC models and their applications in the military subdivision. This is followed by a review of literature on the militaries’ take on SDLC and the preferred approaches, with a brief look at the Business Capability Lifecycle (BCL). The BCL was noted to be the best SDLC model for military hardware and software applications.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
