Biography

Research in the area of software project costs estimation is really lacking in Nigeria and indeed Africa as a whole.

Dr Ahaiwe has done several works in software project estimation using cost drivers/ variables unique to Nigerian software development environment.

The re-engineering of banks’ services in Nigeria using information technology infrastructures has had tremendous effect on the economy. In several works, Dr Ahaiwe has shown the impact of information technology on banks’ services.

Biography

Good decision requires good information, derived from raw facts called data. The use of file system triggered data management problems. Knowledge of file systems flaws has assisted to understand why and how specific database properties are useful. Data are likely to be managed most efficiently when they are stored in a database. Organizations succeed when their managers work on the basis of relevant information. To generate relevant information efficiently, there is need for fast access to the data from which the required information is generated.

A good Management Information System (MIS) is a key to profitability. It aims at providing managers with adequate information and support for effective decision making as well as providing feedback on daily operations. MIS has gone a long way in supporting the value added process of an organization.

Information systems are critical to the success of every business. Computer and information systems have constantly been changing the way organizations conduct their businesses. Information Systems have become the issue of the moment; therefore, EZE UDOKA FELISTA and her colleagues have developed several relevant systems that support information systems in hospitals, schools, and government and industries.

Data Mining is the process using a particular technique to identify and extract huge amount of information or decision-making knowledge hidden in large volume of data which can be applied in different areas like decision support, prediction, forecasting and estimation. Continuous innovations in computer processing power, disk storage, and statistical software are dramatically increasing the accuracy and usefulness of analysis. EZE UDOKA FELISTA and her colleagues have developed a system that tried to data mine institutional data.

Biography

Mobile devices have become part of our everyday and most people cannot do without them. Devices that are compliant with the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) will enable Software Engineers develop applications that run on multiple wireless platforms and improve on the system’s functionality especially with the recent launching of the 3.5G, 4G and more wireless technology. As a result, there is increased interest in the development of such mobile systems. Anthony Otuonye and his colleagues are concerned with the development principles of mobile software and embedded systems.

ICT can be a powerful tool for good governance owing to its ability to spread accurate and comprehensive information, and to provide a record for each government transaction. Conducting transactions openly and with the public knowledge of the rules to be applied has proved to be very effective at fighting corruption. Any mechanism that encourages information spread will be a potent force to reducing corruption in government circles. Otuonye, in his research efforts, has provided such models for effective e-governance application in Nigeria.

Biography

MIS is really the combination of both business and information systems. If you look at business organizations there is a host of things that they do. They do a lot of transaction processing like when you order something, when you pay for something on the internet etc. So part of MIS is the development of systems that take care of those transactions, it goes beyond that, they also include generating information that people use to make decisions. So another real key of information system is to support decision making. Management information system cannot be complete without the combination of computer and its organization, database management, IT procurement and the usability and design of websites.

I am passionate about delivering IT and project strategies to wherever I find myself in and ready to apply sound knowledge of scientific and management principles in a globally acceptable context. I am aiming to apply my knowledge from studies in a real work context and enhance a range of skills which will support a successful career that will enable me work effectively where hard work is recognized and opportunities abound, especially where my contribution is needed for growth and sustainability.

Biography

As the battles between PC vs. Mac and IE vs. Firefox rage on, there is another battle being waged that is going relatively unnoticed: legacy computing vs. cloud computing. Legacy computing involves programs that are installed on a computer’s hard drive or a local server; cloud computing refers to software services and platforms that are offered through the Internet. An easy-to-understand example is e-mail; some people access e-mail from a program on their computer while others use e-mail services online such as Gmail or Yahoo! mail. Clouds are a large pool of easily usable and accessible virtualized resources (such as hardware, development platforms and/or services). These resources can be dynamically reconfigured to adjust to a variable load (scale), allowing also for an optimum resource utilization. Mr Amadi’s research is on adopting cloud computing technology in institutional administration within Nigeria. This promises to be more scalable reliable, available and robust than existing technologies. This will keep Nigeria institutions at the edge of technological advancement in the world.
