CIS3003 2013 Assignment 3 Description Marks out of Wtg(%) Due date Assignment 3 100 30% Due Data 31 May 2013 For the third assignment you need to write a single report not more than 20 pages in the body. Read the section describing the formatting requirements for the assignment carefully. Report Part A (80%): Security in Mobile Systems, Virtualization and Clouds Our organisation, after implementing mobile services has discovered that a lot of the expected benefits have not been achieved. While the staff agree and can see how the new untethered access to business data and services can help in their day to day activities the overhead of using the services due to authentication has made the system poorly accepted. The security mechanism was imposed to limit the likelihood of having long term connections from external partners which may be abused by external entities. The organisation has a large number of external business partners who regularly connect to the organisation resources as part of cooperative business processes. After the appointment of an external consultant specialising in dealing with user productivity and business network design a number of problems were highlighted. Firstly, the system was designed so that the security management was pushed onto the mobile devices making the use of the service disruptive to the users. The accessing of different services while using mobile devices required a separate login in to each service. Not only that, but prolonged inactivity would shut down the connection to the mobile device requiring a twostep process to re-establish a connection to the device then reconnection to the service. Secondly, to implement the new network design making the data more accessible from various parts of the network resulted in explosion in the number of duplicated physical servers on the system. Most of the time…...

...[pic] ASSIGNMENT ON DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL FOR MILK AND FLOWER Submitted by: Distribution Channel for Milk Milk-Marketing System Eighty percent of milk is marketed through the highly fragmented unorganized sector, which includes local milk vendors, wholesalers, retailers, and producers themselves. On the other hand, the organized dairy industry, which accounts for about 20 percent of total milk production, comprises two sectors: government and co-operatives. Even though co-operatives provide a remunerative price to the producer, the unorganized sector plays a major role in milk marketing because of three factors. The first factor is the pricing policy of the co-operatives: their purchase price is based on the fat content of the milk, whereas the private sector pays a flat rate per liter of milk. The second factor, which motivates the milk producers to sell milk to private vendors, involves the type of milk animals reared by the producer. Crossbred cows yield more milk with a lower fat than do buffalo. The crossbred cow population has increased over years because of artificial insemination and improvements in management practices. The third factor is payment policy. The private sector can pay their producers every day, whereas the co-operatives pay weekly or fortnightly. Producers sometimes have to fight with the co-operatives to get their......

...13 Agent-Oriented Novel Quantum Key Distribution Protocol for the Security in Wireless Network Xu Huang, Shirantha Wijesekera and Dharmendra Sharma University of Canberra Australia 1. Introduction Wireless security is becoming increasingly important as wireless applications and systems are widely adopted. Numerous organizations have already installed or are busy in installing “wireless local area networks” (WLANs). These networks, based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, are very easy to deploy and inexpensive. Wi-Fi allows LANs to be deployed without cabling for client devices, typically reducing the costs of network deployment and expansion. As of 2007 wireless network adapters are built into most modern laptops. The price of chipsets for Wi-Fi continues to drop, making it an economical networking option included in ever more devices. Wi-Fi has become widespread in corporate infrastructures, which also helps with the deployment of RFID technology that can piggyback on Wi-Fi. WiFi is a global set of standards, unlike mobile telephones, any standard Wi-Fi device will work anywhere in the world. Other important trends in wireless adoptions are including the introduction of wireless email with devices such as the Blackberry and The Palm VII, rampant digital cell phone use, including the use of short message service (SMWS), and the advent of Bluetooth devices. But the risks associated with the adoption of wireless networking are only now coming to light. A number of impressive......

...LINK BROJ 3, CITIRAJ U LITERATURI ! 2.2.2 Directs Sales The direct model refers to the fact that Dell does not use the retails channel, but sells its PCs directly to customers through its website,, as Figure 4 shows. This way the intermediary steps that may add time and cost are eliminated, and Dell is directly linked to its customers. Figure 4: Distribution channel of Dell vs. a traditional company [31] In fact, Dell sells directly to all its customers, “from home-PC users to the world’s largest corporations” [54]. This way it creates a direct relationship with each individual customer, which turns out to be a great source of competitive advantage. As Michael Dell has stated, this direct relationship “creates valuable information” about the customer, thus Dell knows who the end users are, what they have bought from Dell and what their preferences are, a fact that allows Dell to offer add-on products and services, and stay, in general, closer to the customer [27]. As Lawton et al [29] suggest, this “provides Dell with a wealth of marketing and product development information”. Dell distinguishes three rough customer segments: large organizations (large companies or government institutions), small and medium businesses, and personal consumers; the mix of customers served is wide (no customer represents more than 1-2% of Dell’s revenues) and there is a focus on large customers (70% of Dell’s......

Web Distribution

...I- NATURE OF THE PROBLEM A) THE DISTRIBUTION ON THE WEB The web distribution commonly known as e-commerce or e-comm, is the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. Electronic commerce draws on such technologies as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web at least at one point in the transaction's life-cycle, although it may encompass a wider range of technologies such as e-mail, mobile devices and telephones as well. The beginnings and development of electronic commerce are intimately linked with the evolution and spread of the Internet. For nearly a decade, the Internet sector recorded impressive growth figures but it is interesting to return to the beginning of e-commerce. Initially, the lack of central authority able to define rules and sanction let fear some form of anarchy on the Internet and greatly hindered the development of commercial activities on the network. It was formed, almost naturally, a sort of code of conduct which has long regulated the behavior of the network. Using the network for commercial purposes has long been rejected on these behaviors. There are also other factors explaining a delay in the arrival of e-commerce. Indeed, the main language in the......

...September 2003 From supplier to store For IKEA, distribution is an important part of the equation of creating home furnishing articles at prices which are as low as possible. Today approximately 10,000 IKEA products are manufactured by 1,600 suppliers and transported to 186 IKEA stores around the world, often via one of the company’s 27 central warehouses and distribution centres. At IKEA, distribution is all about making the route from the manufacturer to the customer as short as possible. In the early days of IKEA, the “warehouse” was a shed on Elmtaryd Farm in the south of Sweden where the founder of the company, Ingvar Kamprad, lived with his parents. In those days products were despatched from Elmatryd with the help of the county milk van that visited the farm each day. Things have changed a bit since then, however. Today IKEA operates 27 distribution centres in a total of 16 countries. From here IKEA products are delivered to 186 stores around the world – 165 IKEA Group stores and a further 21 stores operated by other franchisees. IKEA works in various ways not only to rationalise and simplify distribution, but also to minimise the impact this part of the business has on the environment. The secret is to calculate as exactly as possible how many products will be needed to satisfy demand. This eliminates any unnecessary costs for production and warehousing. The hallmarks of IKEA distribution are: – a global distribution network – large volumes – flat packages – low......

...Fulfillment, and Production. In addition, XelPharm owns a large distribution warehouse approximately four miles away from the headquarters. Until now, its networks have relied entirely on wired connections. The company’s CIO (chief information officer) decided long ago that he would wait until wireless technology “settled down” before investing in it. 1. What can you tell him about the wireless standards that might convince him that now is the time to adopt wireless technology? Ans: Since 1997 after IEEE released its first wireless network standard, wireless network has evolved into several distinct standards. Most attracting thing about Wireless connection is the absence of wire. Addition to that, the newer technology of wireless network can provide maximum downlink throughput to120 Mbps and maximum uplink throughput to 60 Mbps (WiMax 2). This technology is being considered to be an alternative to DSL and T-carrier services for homes and businesses. It achieves much faster throughput than T-carriers at a lower cost for end users. This type of technology can transmit and receive signals up to 50 km, or approximately 30 miles, when antennas are fixed or up to 15 km, or approximately 10 miles, when they are mobile with QoS (quality of service) provisions. 2. Also, what can you tell him to convince him that wireless networking could improve the company’s productivity? Ans: Wireless networks are a powerful tool for boosting productivity and......

Some claim Indian agriculture began by 9000 BP as a result of early cultivation of plants, and domestication of crops and animals. Settled life soon followed with implements and techniques being developed for agriculture. Double monsoons led to two harvests being reaped in one year. Indian products soon reached the world via existing trading networks and foreign crops were introduced to India. Plants and animals—considered essential to their survival by the Indians—came to be worshiped and venerated. The middle ages saw irrigation channels reach a new level of sophistication in India and Indian crops affecting the economies of other regions of the world under Islamic patronage. Land and water management systems were developed with an aim of providing uniform growth. Despite some stagnation during the later modern era the independent Republic of India was able to develop a comprehensive agricultural program. Rice production India is one of the world's largest producers of white rice, accounting for 20% of all world rice production. Rice is India's......

First, Starbucks will assess the competitors line of product to identify all channels of categories so Starbucks can identify their where they can be successful. Competitors' distribution channels. As a starting point, make a list of any competitors that could compete directly with you for the same customers. Then divide these competitors into categories based on the distribution channels they currently use. The result will be a picture of which channels are being successfully used in your type of business and location. (2015, p. 1) The lines of distribution are as follows, first of all direct lines to currently own retail outlets, wholesale outlets, Direct mail through flyers or catalogs, telemarketing, Cyber marketing, and cable or TV advertisement. Each of these avenues provide value to the sale of the product. The wholesale and retail outlets provide a direct link between the customer and the manufacture but this can be the more expensive direction because the products provided are manufactured and shipped to the retail stores without orders in place. Direct mail through catalog or flyers provide the customers the options and saves Starbucks the capitol......

Distribution Strategy

...Distribution Strategy (Group D _ Session 7 _ Assignment) San Fabian (SF) - MacDowell Philippines (MP) - Paulo Remita Incorporated (PR) Problem Statement After 19 years of an established “exclusive-distribution” agreement with San Fabian; MacDowell Philippines decided to terminate the deal. MacDowell Philippines decided to take over the Wholesale role of San Fabian (SF) and would participate directly in large Commercials as well as Government Projects. Accordingly MP (MacDowell Philippines) products line will be made available to Construction Supply dealers across Philippines. MP claimed to be forced to take that step to help increasing Sales since they experienced an operation capacity around 50%. Situation Analysis As Mr. Paul Cheng _ President of SF was looking at that situation imposed by MP; he went back in time when the relationship started between both corporations in 1967 and continued since then and saw how that engagement was considered to be a “ Natural Fit “ or in other words a “ Win to Win “ situation. There were things SF wanted in MP and other things MP was missing that could be briefly explained as follows: a) SF MP * SF was missing the roofing product line * MP was the only manufacturers who accepted the “exclusive-distribution” agreement b) MP SF * SF was a growing co. with a solid, good reputation * SF didn’t carry any competing product line * SF could offer a national coverage * SF would be able to pay...
