ItemeNcentive: a framework for intelligent marketing in mobile peer-to-peer environments(ACM, 2003-10-03) Ratsimor, Olga; Finin, Tim; Joshi, Anupam; Yesha, YelenaIn recent years, the growth of Mobile Computing, Electronic Commerce and Mobile Electronic Commerce has created a new concept of Mobile Electronic Marketing. New marketing models are being developed and used to target mobile users. Mobile environments introduces new challenges that need to be overcome by these marketing models in order to be successful and effective. This paper proposes a framework, called eNcentive, which addresses many of the issues that are characteristic of mobile environments. eNcentive facilitates peer-to-peer electronic marketing in mobile ad hoc environments. Our framework employs a intelligent marketing scheme, by providing users the capability to collect information like sales promotions and discounts. Users can propagate this marketing information to other users in the network. Participating users benefit from such circulation since businesses that originally created the promotions reward the active distributors with additional promotions and other compensations. ItemFinding the PerfectFit(2017-08) Jennings, Karen Pike; Summers, Kathryn; Walsh, Greg; University of Baltimore. School of Information Arts and Technologies; Master of Science in Interaction Design and Information ArchitectureThis paper explores available research and documents detailing the current landscape of, and consumer point of view on, ubiquitous commerce as a foundation for understanding and developing a model for web technology that can assist consumers with various purchase types. In addition, this paper compiles and evaluates expert recommendations in interface design for mobile and tablet-based devices in order to inform recommendations for developing a model for technology-assisted commerce applied to the bicycling industry. ItemThe Need for an Electronic Document Exchange Infrastructure for Supply Chain Management(1999) Fowler, Danielle; Parker, Craig M; Swatman, Paula; Swatman, Paul AnthonyEstablished supply chain management techniques such Just-In-Time inventory (JIT), Quick Response (QR) and Efficient Consumer Response (ECR) have proven that re-organising a business' processes to take advantage of the characteristics of electronic information exchange can yield significant results. IT support for these approaches is critical, and has traditionally focused on the exchange of standardised business documents. As the internet and other proprietary and organisational networks expand, however, organisations are now seizing the opportunity to use this enabling infrastructure to exchange other, more varied, types of information. With this proliferation of document exchange types and mechanisms comes the need for a supporting technological infrastructure, which will facilitate the rapid development of systems which support these supply chain management and business process reengineering initiatives. This paper contains a descriptive exploratory case of a large Australian organisation, which has undergone the process of developing an electronic document exchange (EDE) strategy for supply chain management across all its divisions. We present an initial requirements framework for EDE derived from this case study, covering success and failure constraints, as well as business and functional criteria. The importance of internal application standards is addressed. ItemSemantic Similarity Analysis of XML Schema using Grid Computing(IEEE, 2009-08-10) Kim, Jaewook; Lee, Sookyoung; Halem, Milton; Peng, YunA growing number of e-businesses have been using XML schemas in recent years. Schema mapping now plays a crucial role in integrating heterogeneous ebusiness applications. Since large-scale XML schema mapping using complex and hybrid similarity measures requires significant amount of processing time, a sophisticated similarity analysis algorithm is needed to handle its complexity and performance. In this paper, we focus on designing a service-oriented architecture (SoA) for schema mapping, based on a grid computing technology in order to enhance the effectiveness of the mapping algorithm. After comparing three different grid computing technologies (MPJ, Hadoop, and Globus), we explain why MPJ is the most suitable. We propose SoA XML schema mapping based on MPJ, and demonstrate its performance. ItemService Discovery in The Future for Mobile Commerce(ACM, 1999-11-30) Chakraborty, Dipanjan; Chen, Harry
