Independence, how this word became ours -- Nirmolendu Goon

'Cause a poem will be written, with eager excitement
Lacks and lacks of excited anxious eager rebelious audiences are waiting
Till dawn on the beach of the park that turned into an ocean of crowd-
'When is the poet arriving?' 'When is the poet arriving?'

This childrens' park was not there then,
This tree, flower adorned park was not there then,
This sleepy colourless afternoon was not there then |
Then how was the afternoon then?
Then how was, the childrens' park, bench-tree flower garden
Covered, this field, the heart of Dhaka?
I know, black hand was raised to erase the memory of that day |
So I see today in this poetless desolate plain
Poet against poet,
Field against field,
Afternoon against afternoon,
Park against park,
March against march .... |

O! unborn children, O! poet of future,
While swinging on the colourful cradle of childrens' park
You will know one day everything - I'm, for you
Leaving the story of that great afternoon |
Neither the park, nor the flower garden - nothing was there,
Only as the sky still today touching the horizon
Was there wide grass-filled field, green and greenish
The green of our freedom-filled heart mingled with
The green of this wide field |

Red-band around their head and wrist, they came rushing to this field,
The iron labouror from factories,
Plough and yoke on their shoulders, The naked farmers came in swarms,
The fiery youths came snatching the arms of police,
Death in their fist, dream in their eyes, the middle-class came,
Lower middle-class, sad clerks, women, aged, prostitute, vagabond, and
The children, as you are, the leaf collecting children, in groups |

A poem will be recited, is that the reason for…...

...Enterprise Question 3 Enterprise had excellent growth in the last few years, with revenues reaching $3.1 billion worldwide for the year 1996, combined with a leaner cost structure, product and service differentiation and successful exploitation of a unique market niche. The company has been able to achieve over 20% market share in a highly competitive industry. A number of industry changes are occurring at the time of the case, including the consolidation of major industry players. New strategic moves implemented by Enterprise’s management should take into account these new industry dynamics and an increased competitiveness. Enterprise participates in a highly competitive industry. The market is generally divided into two segments: airport rental businesses and home-city rental businesses. Customers in the rental car sector have significant bargaining power and demand seems to be very elastic, leading to significant price competition. Price wars are generally higher in the airport business. Switching costs are very low given the lower customer loyalty and high product substitution. That is, prices charged by rental companies are limited by the alternative option of hiring a taxi service. Furthermore, bargaining power of suppliers is moderate. Fleet costs account for nearly half of operating expenses and are highly dependent on Automakers’ performance. In years were automakers were in trouble, fleet costs reduced significantly as manufacturers were selling inventory at......

...Enterprise-wide knowledge management systems are firm-wide efforts to collect, store, distribute, and apply digital content and knowledge. A vast array of technologies for storing structured and unstructured content, locating employee expertise, searching for information, disseminating knowledge, and using data from key corporate systems are used. Companies have to work with many different kinds of knowledge and knowledge issues. The three major categories of enterprise-wide knowledge management systems for dealing with these different kinds of knowledge are: #1. Structured knowledge systems #2. Semi-structured knowledge systems #3. Knowledge network systems Some knowledge exists already somewhere in the firm in the form of structured text documents and reports or presentations, and the central problem is organizing this existing structured knowledge into a library and making it accessible throughout the firm. Managers may also need information that may exist somewhere inside the firm in the form of less-structured documents, such as e-mail, voice mail, chat room exchanges, videos, digital pictures, brochures, or bulletin boards. This is considered semi-structured knowledge or digital asset systems. Systems for structured and semi-structured knowledge are known as knowledge repositories. A knowledge repository is a collection of internal and external knowledge in a single location for more efficient management and utilization by the organization. Selecting and......

A Thesis submitted to the Faculty of the Graduate School, Marquette University, in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of Science Milwaukee, Wisconsin December 2011 ABSTRACT DESIGN AND IMPLEMTATION OF AN ENTERPRISE DATA WAREHOUSE Edward M. Leonard, B.S. Marquette University, 2011 The reporting and sharing of information has been synonymous with databases as long as there have been systems to host them. Now more than ever, users expect the sharing of information in an immediate, efficient, and secure manner. However, due to the sheer number of databases within the enterprise, getting the data in an effective fashion requires a coordinated effort between the existing systems. There is a very real need today to have a single location for the storage and sharing of data that users can easily utilize to make improved business decisions, rather than trying to traverse the multiple databases that exist today and can do so by using an enterprise data warehouse. The Thesis involves a description of data......

Enterprise Architecture

... ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE Author: Institution: Date of Submission: Introduction During the early days of computing, the new technology simply automated the contemporary manual processes with increased efficiency. As the new technology continued to evolve, new innovations paved the way for introduction of new processes and capabilities that were largely driven by information technology. Over time, information technology altered the business environment though not necessarily in conformation with the conventional business strategies. The resulting lack of alignment precipitated unanticipated loss of resources and missed opportunities, thus placing most organizations in competitively disadvantaged positions within the market. In order to align the business strategies with organizational objectives, a new approach for managing Information technology has been established. This new concept is referred to as Enterprise Architecture. Enterprise architecture refers to ways or means of describing organizational structures and processes that link the individual business structures. It is the practice of applying a rigorous and comprehensive method for illustrating a current or outlook of a business’s information systems, processes, personnel, and the business sub-units so that they can be in conformity with the organization’s key objectives and strategic direction. This means that enterprise architecture is a strategic information asset...

Putting the Enterprise Into the Enterprise System

...18, 2014 Putting the Enterprise into the Enterprise System Article Summary Jason Simonds Enterprise systems can be an effective tool for a business; they can enable a company to integrate data puled from several different functions in an organization and allow for more efficient communication between separate systems. Business enterprises can connect shipping to sales and sales to accounting and accounting to finance all under one digital roof. The article Putting the Enterprise into the Enterprise System elaborates on the benefits such systems can have on a company, but highlights some of the problems a poorly fitting system can cause and how these problems can be avoided. While enterprise systems can greatly help a business, a poorly designed system can be costly and timely to fix. A company with multiple departments and different functions can have hundreds of different tasks that are maintained in a system. Between shipping, receiving, design, accounting, etc. each function has a separate design and multiple tasks to complete. These tasks and designs are often performed on separate systems within an organization. The shipping department may have a program designed for commercial shipping which may not integrate with the accounting software used by the accounting department or the inventory software kept within the warehouse. These “legacy” systems can often be tedious and expensive to work with and can slow a business down. Enterprise systems can fully......

Enterprise Case

...1. In what industry does Enterprise Rent-A-Car compete? Enterprise Rent-A-Car operates in the Car Rental Industry, an industry with a total market value of $20 billion. The industry consists of two segments: the airport market and the local market. Both segments account for about half of the total market value. The Airport market is a competitive market, targeting business and leisure segments with companies mostly competing on price, vehicle availability, brand reputation and customer innovation. The local market is comprised of two different segments, serving two different needs 1) discretionary rentals and repair and 2) insurance replacement rentals. Discretionary rentals are less cyclical in demand and handle lower prices than rentals in the airport market. These rentals were mostly done for leisure and business purposes. Insurance replacement rentals on the other hand were unplanned and involuntarily. This segment mostly compete on flexibility, trust and reliability of the rental company. At the time of the case, only about 10 percent of Enterprise’s offices were focused on the airport market, whereas the other 90% is focused on the local market. 2. What is Enterprise’s positioning relative to other incumbent competition like Hertz or Avis How does Enterprise’s differentiate its value proposition from that of Hertz and or Avis An effective value proposition communicates what a customer can expect to receive by using a product.

Enterprise Architecture

...Article Essential Layers, Artifacts, and Dependencies of Enterprise Architecture By Robert Winter and Ronny Fischer Abstract After a period where implementation speed was more important than integration, consistency and reduction of complexity, architectural considerations have become a key issue of information management in recent years again. Enterprise architecture is widely accepted as an essential mechanism for ensuring agility and consistency, compliance and efficiency. Although standards like TOGAF and FEAF have developed, however, there is no common agreement on which architecture layers, which artifact types and which dependencies constitute the essence of enterprise architecture. This paper contributes to the identification of essential elements of enterprise architecture by (1) specifying enterprise architecture as a hierarchical, multilevel system comprising aggregation hierarchies, architecture layers and views, (2) discussing enterprise architecture frameworks with regard to essential elements, (3) proposing interfacing requirements of enterprise architecture with other architecture models and (4) matching these findings with current enterprise architecture practice in several large companies. Keywords enterprise architecture, architectural components, architectural layers, architectural views, interfaces ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE: DEFINITION According to ANSI/IEEE Std 1471-2000, architecture is defined as the “ fundamental organization of a system, embodied......
