Effective Implementation of e-Learning in Initial

Learning Program: A Case Study

Soumya Hari

Corporate ILP Team, Tata Consultancy Services Limited, Trivandrum, Kerala, India

Abstract - Case studies are effective in dealing with factors like creativity, innovation and context. This case study attempts to highlight the outcomes of introducing the concept of e-learning into teaching technical topics like Dotnet, Java,

Mainframe and C++ of the Initial Learning Program at Tata

Consultancy Services Limited in 2012-2013. These findings will be of interest to any organization that plans to implement e-learning methodologies to help its employees learn and remember the initial lessons of software development and the various programming languages with limited faculty support.

The outcome of this case study indicates a stable and prominent increase in the use of e-learning strategies in consort with the traditional methods of training.

Querying�Clusters� of� Biological� Sequences��

Abstract—Querying and managing scientific database are poorly supported by traditional approaches and technology. The use of an alignment tool is often the only method made available for querying biological sequences and all the sequences of a database typically need to be reprocessed entirely when the database is updated. In contrast the method presented in this paper proposes the use of two methods successfully used in image processing to query and update a database of clusters of biological sequences. The proposed method consists of efficient hash-based searching and clustering schemes. A novel metric is introduced and used to quantify the degree of matching and to determine which cluster(s) the query sequence belongs to.

Evaluation results are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed methodology.

Abstract— This paper proposes a framework for a software maturity assessment model for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) based on the TMMi model. Our framework includes an evaluation questionnaire based on TMMi subpractices, support tools with examples of artefacts required to ensure the questionnaire is thoroughly completed, as well as an automated tool support for its application, enabling

SMEs to carry out self-assessment. The model was applied to four SMEs.

1. Introduction

Small and medium-sized software enterprises play a major role in world economic development, representing 99,2% of the world’s software companies [1]. In 2010, computer programs developed in Brazil had a 35% share in the country’s software market. This market is explored by about 8,520 companies dedicated to software development, production and distribution, as well as to services. A total of 94% of all software development and production companies (2,117) are classifi ed as SMEs [12]. Moreover, those with less than ten employees represent 93% of European companies and
