Needs-focused innovation strategy and business performance
2012 Edition, July 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper attempts to answer to the questions about where to do innovation at country level by dealing with the case of US' experience (1980-2006), and about in what manner to innovate while needs evolve at firm level by showing the rises and falls in mobile phone industry (1985-2010). In...

Exploiting Synchronicity for Immediate Feedback in Self-Stabilizing PIF Algorithms
2014 Edition, November 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A distributed algorithm, run by distributed processes, satisfies mutual exclusion if at most one process is granted a privilege to access the critical section in each execution step (safety), and each process is privileged infinitely often in each execution (fairness). The design of mutual...

Geo-enabled FOSS tool supports for immediate flood disaster response planning
2014 Edition, December 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Flood is a major natural hazard occur recurrently in Sri Lanka. Allocating victims to camps and provide medical facilities are two main activities at the immediate response phase of a flood and use of manual methods delayed this process. This project developed a geo-enabled application to...
