Case Study for Melbourne IT

The need: Our position is that we do managed IT services for every single school in Queensland,” says Chris Polkinghorne, security technical lead for Melbourne IT. “That gives us a massive range of challenges. The biggest and most interesting one is probably the fact that we essentially have two networks that we need to work with: one is the Internet and one is the school system. We have to border off these zones and keep those two forces away from each other as best we can.”

“We’re supporting approximately 480,000 students, about 1,300 schools,” says Polkinghorne. “Just web traffic alone, we’re doing about 20 terabytes a month. Students are inquisitive by nature, and you don’t want to discourage that. Unfortunately, sometimes that learning takes them to places which are not the best for them to go to.”

How Dangers of Marketing Metrics Dependency

When it comes to marketing, the same can be said for your attitude toward analytics. As a CMO, cultivating a data-driven marketing team can drive more insightful marketing decision-making and thus, better results. But an over-emphasis on metrics can actually lead to the opposite.

But wait … is this even a problem for CMOs and their marketing teams? If you look at all the data out there, it seems like the biggest problem that exists with the current state of marketing analytics stems from a lack of marketing analytics implementation, not an over-dependency.

Case Study on Mining and Toxic Metals

Mining activities are known to release significant amounts of toxic metals into the surrounding environment. Some toxic metals frequently associated with mining include mercury, arsenic and lead. These substances are present at low concentrations in soil, rock and water, but the process of mining may release quantities harmful to the health of people and the environment. Large amounts of waste rock and tailings contaminated with toxic metals can beproduced by mine sites.

In the case of the Donlin Creek mine, there are only 0.072 ounces of gold for every ton of ore, a figure that does not take into account the waste rock. Toxic substances contained within the rock and tailings are more easily released once these substances are processed/milled and left in mine pits, underground workings, waste rock piles, and tailings impoundments where they are exposed to the environment.

Case Study for Integrated Water Resources Management

Mongolia’s freshwater resources are under increasing pressure. Growth in population, increased economic activity and improved standards of living lead to rising water uses and competition for limited freshwater resources. Major concerns are impacts of climate change, and over-exploitation of water resources by agriculture and mining. Intensified future climate variability is likely to increase water resource scarcity in Mongolia. Past and present climate trends are, like in other parts of Asia, characterized by an increase in surface air temperature, with more pronounced temperature rises during winter (Cruz et al., 2007).

A Case Study on Converter Valve Protection in Open-circuit Test

The open-circuit test of converter valve in Hulunbeier to Liaoning HVDC transmission project,the sub-system test was interrupted because of frequent tripping operations due to protection of converter vale.In this paper,the basic principle of open-circuit test,and the converter valve monitoring and pole control protection in the test are analyzed,and conclusions are drawn that VCU protection of converter valve is sufficient,and the pole control system should merely monitor the triggering action of converter valve protection instead of lead to system tripping,which may let the open-circuit test be performed successfully.

Case Study about Developing New Product Concepts Via the Lead User Method: “Low Tech” Field”

Abstract:- The Lead Client statistical surveying system is constructed around the thought that the wealthiest comprehension of new item and administration necessities is held by only a couple of “Lead Clients.” They might be recognized and drawn into a methodology of joint advancement of new item or benefit thoughts with maker faculty. In this article we cover a fruitful requisition of a Lead Client statistical surveying strategy did by Cornelius Herstatt at Hilti Ag, a major European maker of items and materials utilized within development.

Introduction:- Each of the two Lead Client aspects is imperative from the perspective of acquiring rich market scientist qualified data on new item and administration chances. The predominant is critical since, as investigations of issue settling have demonstrated, clients who have genuine experience with a necessity can give the most precise information observing it. Furthermore when requirements are advancing quickly, as is the situation in numerous high innovation item classifications, just clients at the front of the pattern will have encounter with “tomorrow’s needs today.” Keep reading…

Case Study on Environmental Information Management in Africa

Study about Environmental Information Management in Africa

Environmental management in Uganda was first accorded the attention it deserves with the creation of the Ministry of Environment Protection in 1986. Following this, Uganda realized the need to put in place systems and structures to ensure the management of environmental information. The underlying assumption was that good information would lead to better decisions and management practices which would eventually be positively reflected by an enhanced environment and improved quality of life of the people.

The management of environment information involves a number of processes and outputs. These include the collection, organisation, analysis and communication of data, statistics and other qualitative material. The production of environmental information entails the collection and analysis of raw data and their interpretation into forms that can be used for decision making (NEMA 1996). Some of the outputs include assessments and studies and the production of state of the environment reports, environmental outlook reports, statistical compendia, data books, environmental atlases and policy statements by both public and private sector organizations.
