In critical situations, such as decision making in healthcare, is necessary to have access to all of the patient’s information, the information must be reliable, and must be accessed in an easy and fast way. These requirements make medical information systems of extreme importance. However in today’s molds and with the advent of the Internet and mobile devices, a paradigm shift, from the current isolated systems to interoperable distributed systems, that take advantage of ubiquitous computing, is needed. The present work proposes an architecture that aims to answer the needs of interoperability between heterogeneous systems and the need of ubiquity of medical information systems. A prototype was developed that tries to provide interoperability through a service-oriented architecture using web services. A mobile component was also developed to enable ubiquitous access to medical information. This work was based on the author’s knowledge about the Portuguese National Health Service.

Business-IT alignment has consistently ranked in the top five IT management concerns for almost a decade now. Despite a considerable research since the 90s, business-IT alignment still remains a challenge even more in turbulent organizational environments requiring business strategy to be more frequently examined and changed. We need effective ways to achieve and sustain alignment between the information systems and technology strategy and the business strategy so organizations become more flexible and agile. Enterprise architecture may be one of those effective ways particularly when developed under a business process management approach. Looking into a consulting practice that has adopted such approach, this research highlights the role of one particular model, the organizational competences model, in the clarification of the strategy and in the development of the enterprise architecture for a wine regulatory commission, the organization that was used as a case study.

Women in post-conflict economies face a number of challenges. Often their businesses stay at embryonic stages only, due to three key limitations relating to: knowledge of business vision and management; access to finance and markets; and access to role models and networks. Added to the complexity is the risk of having to start all over again due to their countriesapos; political instability and the limited infrastructure to make their businesses proper and become more efficient over time. This report presents findings on the situation of women entrepreneurs in Liberia. It discusses the challenges that female entrepreneurs face as well as enabling factors that they encounter when operating their businesses in Liberiaapos;s post-conflict environment. Through the voices and experiences of women - as in the IFC series quot;Voices of Women Entrepreneursquot; that inspires it - this report sheds some light on the specificities of women doing business in fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCS), such as those in Liberia. It identifies operational lessons and proposes recommendations on how to support women entrepreneurs and contribute to their economic empowerment in the transition from post-conflict to reconstruction and development. The women interviewed for this report highlighted how obstacles...

The Multimodal Information Sharing Team (MIST) is an evolution of the Maritime Information Sharing Taskforce that has been conducting workshops in domestic ports since 2008. The MIST provides a framework and process for the collaborative exploration of information sharing across the port multimodal community. The MIST emphasizes the private sector perspective to ensure that government stakeholders are leveraging this critical player in the sharing of all hazards threat information. The Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE) sponsored the Baltimore MIST. This report presents the results of an action planning workshop that involved over 30 local, state, and national public and private sector stakeholders in maritime security for the Port of Baltimore. It highlights the motivations for information sharing and the information needs of both public and private sector. It uses the Inter-Organizational Collaborative Capacity model to organize the analysis and recommendations for three aspects of information sharing: security-focused mechanisms, commerce-focused mechanisms, and technology mechanisms. The report concludes with a set of both immediate-term and long term actions that were identified by workshop participants. Through the MIST collaboration...

Cloud Computing is evolving from a mere "storage" technology to a new vehicle for Business Information Systems (BIS) to manage, organize and provide added-value strategies to current business models. However, the underlying infrastructure for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to become a new platform for trading partners and transactions must rely on intelligent, flexible, context-aware Multi-Tenant Architectures. In this paper, we present Cloudio, a Cloud Computing-based metadata-powered Multi-Tenant Architecture, backed with a proof-of-concept J2EE implementation.; This work is supported by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism, and Commerce under the project GODO2 (TSI- 020100-2008-564), SONAR2 (TSI-020100-2008-665), and SITIO (TSI-0204000-2009-148), under the PIBES (TEC2006-12365-C02-01) and MID-CBR (TIN2006-15140- C03-02) projects of the Spanish Committee of Education & Science.; Proceedings of: 2010 IEEE 3rd International Conference on Cloud Computing, CLOUD 2010, 5-10 July, Miami, Florida, USA

Several organizations have faced challenges in adopting the usage of information technology in an environment-friendly and a sustainable supply chain network. Information technology plays a crucial role in ensuing success of Green supply chain networks. We propose that the Green supply chain management information flow is impacted by both IT governance and Green infrastructure components which in turn are impacted by corporate sustainability. This paper explores various drivers of information technology that enable Green supply chain management and presents a conceptual taxonomy of information technology for sustainability.

Microfinance, the delivery of microcredit to low income people, is a popular development approach among governments in both the developing and developed world. The approach encourages mainly the poor to pursue self-employment by creating micro and small enterprises. Most microfinance institutions, the main providers of microcredit in developing countries, are seemingly taking a minimalist approach in their operations. Against this background it is feared that provision of business development services (BDS) to owner managers of micro and small enterprises is likely to be reduced or neglected. Previous attempts to evaluate the association of microfinance practices with the performance of poor people's micro and small enterprises have resulted in mixed results with little theoretical underpinning. Within the context of the current poverty reduction discourse, this study investigates the association of microcredit and concurrent provision of business development services with micro and small enterprise performance in a developing country. The key question investigated is whether, given access to microcredit, there is a difference in owner-managers' self-assessed performance of their micro and small enterprises contingent on receipt of business development services. This thesis employs two relational conceptions...

The private sector, through investment and job creation, plays a crucial role in a country's fight against poverty. Where an effective private sector is lacking, business registration reform has been shown to be one of the essential first steps toward fostering private-sector growth. The easier, faster, and cheaper the business registration process becomes, the higher the number of businesses in an economy. A number of recent studies have found that simpler registration processes translate into advantages for workers and employers, including greater employment opportunities, more productive jobs, and higher total factor productivity. In addition, society as a whole benefits from registration reform. Business registration reform also has the potential to reduce both informality and gender disparity in entrepreneurship. This toolkit provides a systematic analysis of various reform options and is meant to serve as a guide for policy makers and practitioners implementing business registration reform. The toolkit thus displays the fundamentals of international good practice that can be adapted to specific country contexts in a coherent...

From different public and private requirements, mechanisms have been set in action that allow for companies to obtain information in order to make decisions with a stronger foundation. This article is focused on the description of an entire information system for the business world, developed in the realm of the Chambers of Commerce of Spain, which has given rise to the creation of an authentic network of inter-chamber information. In Spain, the obligatory membership of businesses to the Chambers of Commerce in their geographic areas, and therefore the compulsory payment of member quotas, has traditionally generated some polemics, above all because many firms have not perceived a material usefulness of the services offered by these Chambers. Notwithstanding, the 85 Chambers currently existing in Spain, as well as the organization that coordinates them ??? the Upper Council or Consejo Superior de C??maras de Comercio ??? and the company created expressly to commercialize information services online, Camerdata, have developed genuinely informative tools that cover a good part of the information demands that a business might claim, and these are described here.
