From Envisioning to Designing e-Development: The Experience by Nagy K. Hanna

By Nagy K. Hanna

'From Envisioning to Designing e-Development' provides a concrete case in bridging the distance among imaginative and prescient and actionable courses. It captures how Sri Lankans labored with neighborhood stakeholders and reduction corporation opposite numbers in relocating from constructing a shared imaginative and prescient of finished e-development to designing a multiyear funding software, making a nationwide ICT company, and piloting, enforcing, and adapting the tactic.

Instant offers a way for powerful, effective and speedy deployment of latest entry networks in parts formerly with no telecommunications provider or in need of skill. fastened instant entry networks and instant neighborhood Loop (WLL) expertise are, for this reason, taking part in a major position within the restructuring of the general public telecommunications undefined.

The finite element method in electromagnetics

A brand new variation of the best textbook at the finite aspect procedure, incorporating significant developments and extra purposes within the box of electromagnetics

The finite point strategy (FEM) is a strong simulation procedure used to resolve boundary-value difficulties in quite a few engineering situations. it's been common for research of electromagnetic fields in antennas, radar scattering, RF and microwave engineering, high-speed/high-frequency circuits, instant communique, electromagnetic compatibility, photonics, distant sensing, biomedical engineering, and area exploration.

The Finite point procedure in Electromagnetics, 3rd version explains the method’s techniques and methods in cautious, meticulous prose and covers not just crucial finite aspect process idea, but additionally its most recent advancements and applications—giving engineers a methodical technique to fast grasp this very strong numerical approach for fixing functional, frequently complex, electromagnetic problems.

Featuring over thirty percentage new fabric, the 3rd version of this crucial and finished textual content now includes:

A wider variety of functions, together with antennas, phased arrays, electrical machines, high-frequency circuits, and crystal photonics
The finite aspect research of wave propagation, scattering, and radiation in periodic structures
The time-domain finite aspect approach for research of wideband antennas and brief electromagnetic phenomena
Novel area decomposition suggestions for parallel computation and effective simulation of large-scale difficulties, akin to phased-array antennas and photonic crystals
Along with a good many examples, The Finite point technique in Electromagnetics is a perfect ebook for engineering scholars in addition to for execs within the box.

Example text

Pilots also speed learning by the ICT Agency. The agency is expected not only to make the independent evaluations of such pilots available to the public but also to internalize the findings and institutionalize the lessons in its practices and in the program. And with its partners— consultants, service providers, and other implementing agencies—it is expected to discuss what lessons can be learned and how to incorporate them into the evolving program. The ICT and innovation literature suggests that most innovative ICT pilots fail in the narrow sense of fully meeting sponsors’ expectations about costs, benefits, and delivery time.

Empirical evidence suggests otherwise: blueprints transfer little of the tacit knowledge needed to adapt and effectively use new technologies, and technological change in developing countries involves incremental innovation, costly learning, and investment in the necessary skills and capabilities. Deliberate active learning is an essential ingredient in competitiveness and technological dynamism. Similar literature that has emerged in institution building and strategic planning confirms that the premium should be put on building learning organizations and adaptive planning processes—forgoing the comfort of buying comprehensive blueprints (see, for example, Hanna and Picciotto 2002; Jomo and Fine 2006; Scott 1998).

A search for appropriate mechanisms to aggregate and prioritize these demands, simplify program design and management, and maximize learning all at the same time led to the idea of creating two national funds. One, the ICT capacity-building fund, would promote innovations to meet the ICT industry’s human resource development needs, to develop the domestic market, and to promote the country as an ICT service exporter. 17 Mechanisms like these to support bottom-up initiatives also aim to promote innovative partnerships within society.
