Doing Business in the Arab world 2012 is a regional report drawing on the global Doing Business project and its database as well as the findings of Doing Business 2012, the ninth in a series of annual reports investigating the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulation and the protection of property rights that can be compared across 183 economies, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, and over time. A clear message emerging from the political transformation of the Arab world is the demand for more inclusive, broad-based growth that creates opportunity for many who have not shared in the benefits of private sector development in the past. In most Arab economies the unemployment rate remains in double digits, and the majority of the unemployed are under the age of 30. Policies focused on promoting inclusive growth, creating incentives for the private sector to create more good jobs and improving governance can increase employment opportunities for young people in the region.

MBA Professional Report; The Defense (DoD) lags behind commercial entities in terms of adopting mobile computing technologies. Commercial smartphones offer scalable solutions to meet requirements ranging from business functions to tactical operations; however, these solutions require considerations beyond those applicable to the commercial sector. This research identifies whether potential solutions may contribute to three objectives: 1) reduce the DoD's currently high device and service costs; 2) increase the DoD's smartphone functionality; 3) maintain or increase the level of security functionality available in commercial devices for DoD. A strategic analysis of the commercial mobile communications industry highlights the business drivers and motivations of industry participants. This information is used to identify the DoD's strategic options, which, in turn, serve as the basis of business cases for adopting future smartphone capabilities. Business case analyses compare proposed cost models with the cost models for current smartphone implementations. Results indicate growing strategic opportunities for the DoD to acquire more economical commercial handsets and more flexible network services. The business cases may potentially save billions of dollars over seven years-i.e....

Journal Paper; Understanding the nature and characteristics of E-business workloads is a crucial step to improve the quality of service offered to customers in electronic business environments. Using a multi-layer hierarchical model, this paper presents a detailed multiscale characterization of the workload of two actual E-business sites: an online bookstore and an electronic auction site. Our analysis of the workloads showed that the session length, measured in number of requests to execute E-business functions, is heavy-tailed, especially for sites subject to requests generated by robots. An overwhelming majority of the sessions consists of only a handful requests. This seems to suggest that most customers are human (as opposed to robots). A significant fraction of the functions requested by customers were found to be product selection functions as opposed to product ordering. An analysis of the popularity of search terms revealed that it follows a Zipf distribution. However, Zipf's law as applied to E-business is time scale dependent due to the shift in popularity of search terms. We also found that requests to execute frequent E-business functions exhibit a similar pattern of behavior as observed for the total number of HTTP requests. Finally...

Doing Business in the East African Community (EAC) 2013 is the fourth in a series of regional reports drawing on the global Doing Business project and its database. In recent years the Doing Business project has helped put business regulatory reform on the agenda of many countries-at all income levels. Over the past 8 years the 5 members of the EAC-Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda-have continued to take steps to make it easier for local firms to start up and operate. Continual improvement of the business environment is important for countries seeking to benefit from greater trade and investment through regional integration. The common market protocol, which entered into force in July 2010, is supposed to be fully implemented by December 2015. By that time the EAC is expected to have achieved the 'four freedoms'-free movement of people, goods, services and capital within the common market. Among the main tasks of the committees is to set up and implement coherent, broad-based regional reform programs to improve the investment climate of the region as a whole and make it an attractive destination for external investors. The Doing Business methodology is also responsive to the needs of policy makers. Rules and regulations are under the direct control of policy makers-and policy makers intending to change the experience and behavior of businesses will often start by changing rules and regulations that affect them. Doing Business captures several important dimensions of the regulatory environment as they apply to local firms. It provides quantitative measures of regulations for starting a business...

The primary goal of the present paper is the introduction of a new approach of defining IT unit business functions exact criticality levels and respectively categorize them to the appropriate recovery tests, prior to their thorough documentation which includes actual desired recovery time frames. The method is entitled as Business Continuity Testing Points and it is based on the concept of Use Case Points, a fundamental project estimation tool utilized for sizing of object-oriented system development. The aim of the contribution is to ameliorate the existing manual way of determining recovery time of IT business functions that is based exclusively on experience of IT personnel, by introducing a calculation method of multiple factors that can negatively affect the recovery process. The elimination of damage as a result of tested immediate response action in a crisis situation that disrupts core IT operations constitutes the aimed advantage of the proposed contribution; Comment: 9 pages.
