seminar-announcement-2016

The objective MIS Seminar Course is to familiarize you with contemporary challenges in information systems management. A diverse group of practitioners and experts from industry and academia will present their own views of issues and problems.
All of you are expected to listen attentively, think critically, and pose constructive questions about the presentations.

You are expected to attend all the sessions, and to prepare a critical summary of each lecture, using the form provided the instructor. No more than one absence will be allowed. The summaries of lecture are to be handed in before the subsequent lecture. In addition, there is a project requirement: you are expected to choose a topic related to a class presentation, prepare a research paper of at least ten pages on that topic, and make a brief report to the class. The paper is to include a survey of literature and, if appropriate, a discussion of interview findings. This project assignment will be discussed in more detail in the first class session.

Analyst, MIS Division, NYPD

Role of Information Technology to Fight Crime The research of criminal activities and study of its uniqueness and inclinations in 21 century is impossible without utilizing the power of information technologies. New information technologies allow dynamically map out the activity of delinquent groups at the fundamentally new level hence, helps to prevent sophisticated delinquency. Knowing where about of an offender no longer requires hours of investigation but, merely few button clicks on a computer. The New York City Police Department (NYPD), established in 1845, is currently the largest municipal police force in the United States (According to USDOJ 2003). Law enforcement and investigation within the five boroughs of New York City is the primary responsibility of NYPD. With the help of Information Technology, NYPD members are capable of solving sophisticated crime faster than ever before. Using Entity Analytics Solutions NYPD monitors the activity of delinquents in real time and by doing so NYPD notifies law enforcement officers, via email, of any new criminal activity of a known recidivist as soon the new data is entered into computer system. Law enforcement officers are also notified when an offender goes to prison, released from prison or moved from one prison to another prison. All these things are possible because todays information technology let us connect to different data source across different Agencies countywide. There are many other computer applications like ADW, RTRD, OMNIFORM in NYPD’s arsenal to fight different types of crime. Today’s world where criminals are committing sophisticated crime using many different means, it is vital to use the muscle of information technology to fight those crimes.

So, you can program, but do you understand my business needs? Management Information Systems have drastically changed the way that organizations make critical decisions that impact day-to-day operations, as well as the long-term strategic roadmaps. Public and private sector organizations have embraced various kinds of information systems, ranging from custom off-the-shelf Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) products to fully customized solutions developed in-house, in order to be better positioned to more efficiently provide products and services. In this talk, we will be going over case studies that explore some of the challenges that organizations face in embracing new technologies.

Query Optimization in Modern Distributed Databases This talk is about our joint work with IBM U.K. on the problem of distributed join query optimization in a Dynamic Distributed Federated Database (DDFD). Our research goal is to minimize network information transfer to maximize network availability and lifetime. While in any topology it may be assumed a querying node can estimate distance to data sources, in an unknown topology, the querying node has no direct knowledge of inter-site distances. In a hypercube, these distances can be easily calculated at the querying node based on the sites’ labels. What is more, query optimization in the past has not fully taken account of the topology of networks as a cost factor in executing joins. Accordingly we have developed and implemented a distributed join query optimizer for comparative performance studies. Our preliminary experiments show that incorporating inter-node distances into the cost model often produces much better plans, regardless of the search algorithm (greedy or dynamic programming). We confirm a significant advantage of semijoin adoption. Some practical considerations for improvement are discussed.
