An Intelligent System to Connect or Disconnect home Appliances and Monitoring Energy Levels using IoT
by Paparao Nalajala, Bhavana Godavarthi, G. Prabhakar Reddy
Abstract: The present research paper proposes the enlargement of software and hardware for an intelligent system to connect or disconnect home appliances using internet of things. Using IoT we can monitor and control the systems anywhere in the world and also monitor the energy levels with individual loads. Internet of Things is a standout amongst the most leading patterns and developed in the current history of innovative headway. An intelligent system is to connect the internet via Wi-Fi module through all smart devices, additionally the advances in PC equipment, installed framework gadgets, organizing gadgets, display gadgets, control gadgets, programming improvements and so on has massively upheld IoT to develop gradually and persistently from jumps to limits. IoT based applications are arranged and used in various differentiated areas for human services for open security and this system have been implemented using smart power monitoring and controlling through Internet of things. Power can be consumed by different home appliances and monitored by power levels from data and can be accessed through Hall Effect current sensor which is interfaced to system and stored in a data base. In this paper an intelligent system is created to control family smart applications and on screen for vitality utilizing WI-FI empowered Smart phone.

Multi-Keyword Synonym Search over Encrypted Cloud Data using Classified Category-Dictionary and BMIS Tree
by Veerraju Gampala, Sreelatha Malempati
Abstract: Due to the emerging popularity of cloud computing (CC), more and more individuals and organizations are driven to outsource their private data onto the cloud servers, in order to achieve less maintenance cost, great flexibility, and ease of access. The data normally encrypt before outsourced to the cloud service provider (CSP), which obsolete plain-text searching techniques over encrypted cloud data. As a result, providing a search service over cloud data encryption is still challenging. In literature, data encryption on keyword search focuses on single, Boolean, and fuzzy keyword search that rarely sorts the results. Thus, this paper presents an efficient and accurate Multi-Keyword Synonym Ranked Search method over Encrypted cloud data (MKSRSE) in order to solve privacy preservation problem, which supports dynamic deletion and insertion of documents. The objectives of MKSRSE are as follows: 1. To build a Balanced M-way Index Search (BMIS) tree that assigns index vector for each document file; 2. Propose a Modified Depth First Search (MDFS) technique to search the top score ranked documents in order to achieve better search efficiency; 3. Propose a classified category-dictionary to further improve search efficiency; and 4. Propose a methodology to extract keywords from each category documents to form the category sub-dictionary, which ensures accurate document return by means of its keyword relevance. To ease the computational overhead and time complexity, the index vectors are subdivided into the sub-vectors at each level before it stores in the BMIS tree. An extensive research shows that the proposed mechanisms provide better search efficiency and accuracy in comparison with other existing techniques. Efficiency and accuracy of the proposed schemes are demonstrated through empirical experimental evaluation analysis.
Keywords: Multi-keyword synonym ranked search; BMIS tree; Modified Depth First search technique; classified category-dictionary; index tree dynamic update.
Finding the Pot of Gold: Leveraging Social Capital in International New Ventures
by Paul Kirwan, Tiago Ratinho, Peter Van Der Sijde, Aard Groen, Joris Heuven
Abstract: The authors seek to advance the understanding of social capital in the acquisition of other types of capital in the early stages of international new ventures (INVs). International technology-based new ventures are important for the growth of an abundant economy, yet little is known about how these firms utilize social capital to develop the resources required to initiate these firms. Here we add to the literature by first defining INVs as firms that establish foreign operations, not just foreign sales. We then empirically demonstrate that social capital acquisition and use affects the development of the resources (capital) needed for the INV development strategic, financial, and managerial. Our results demonstrate that the development of social capital precedes other forms of capital acquisition for INVs.

A PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR R&D ACTIVITIES IN THE SOFTWARE SECTOR
by Edibe Beste Ersoyak, Sercan Ozcan
Abstract: R&D activities in the software sector have a key role as they lead to sustainability of the sector and rapid development activities with shorter cycles. The importance of R&D
activities in this sector requires an effective performance measurement system for companies to evaluate the performance of R&D activities. Hence, this study aims to establish a performance measurement system that is applicable to the software industry. The study consists of a sequential mixed method where first key performance indicator, drawn from preliminary interviews and then the data from 2012 to 2016 are collected and analysed. The results are interpreted by conducting in-depth interviews with performance management departments. This study uses various performance indicators for R&D oriented sectors combining them with the new KPIs that are specific to the software sector. The implemented method is used to rank the performance of a software company effectively. The study offers many performance-oriented interrelationships between financial, innovation, education, customer-oriented, and organisational factors. The study also offers interesting findings, related to the quality-versus-quantity measures indicating highly qualified employees lead to higher quality levels in research and patent applications rather than a higher number of

Legitimate Firms or Hackers -Who is winning the Global Cyber War?
by Robert Gary, Reilly White, Yorgos Marinakis, Mary Anne Majadillas, Steve Walsh
Abstract: In order to enable reliable service products, the Internet of Things (IoT) technology infrastructure must withstand global hacking events. How is the IoT faring in the cyber security war? Is it winning or is it losing? If the IoT is losing, there is cause for concern. If the IoT is winning, then there is cause for optimism. Yet there is a third possibility Stasis. What would this look like? Why would it occur? We seek to add to the growing body of literature on the IoT. We add to the IoT literature by applying learning curves to major global cyber-attacks to investigate whether the Predators (hackers) or Prey (firms) have developed a decided advantage in this arena. We provide finding from a variety of industrial ecosystems. Our theoretical contributions include the integration of this literature with the literature of technology innovation sequencing, business cycles and the nature of service products.
