Mobile Databases Databases provide individuals and organizations the means to track various types of information. According to Stephens (2009), “A database is a tool that accumulates information, and lets one produce, read, revise, and remove the data in some manner.” (p. 23) A mobile databases is a databases that can be connected with by a linking with a laptop device over a mobile system. A mobile database provides a portable and physically separate system form the main system; however, it is still able to link to the main system through remote sites for various file sharing of company data.
Mobile Database Platforms The incorporation of mobile databases in use throughout society today, provides the integration of various platforms devices. Some of the mobile database platforms devices include laptops, personal data assistants or (PDA’s), and cellular phones. In addition to the mobile platform devices, on must also consider the various server support for the client platforms that include: * Java * Android * Blackberry * Windows Desktop & Mobile * Linux
Many programs and applications like databases require the need or capability to acquire data from an intelligence depository and conduct operations on this data even after out of area.

...Client/Server is a system. It is not just hardware or software. It is not necessarily a program that comes in a box to be installed onto your computer’s hard drive. Client/Server is a conglomeration of computer equipment, infrastructure, and software programs working together to accomplish computing tasks which enable their users to be more efficient and productive. Client/Server applications can be distinguished by the nature of the service or type of solutions they provide. Client/Server Computing is new technology that yields solutions to many data management problems faced by modern organizations. Client/Server Computing: An Introduction, features objective evaluations and details of Client/Server development tools, used operating system, database management system and its mechanism in respect of Client/Server computing and network components used in order to build effective Client/Server applications. vi Preface Last but not the least, this work is primarily a joint work with a number of fellow teacher who have worked with us.

...potential adoption of new mobile applications. The purpose of this research is to study users and non-users of three selected mobile applications, and find out what really drives the intention to use these applications across users and non-users. Design/methodology/approach: The authors measured actual usage of mobile applications in a panel study of 579 Finnish smartphone users, using in-device measurements as an objective way to identify users and non-users. A web-based survey was used in collecting data to test an extended TAM model in explaining intention to use. Findings: Perceived technological barriers negatively affect behavioural control, reflecting people’s assessment of themselves being capable of using the services without trouble. Behavioural control is directly linked to perceived usefulness (except for games) and perceived enjoyment, as hypothesized. Perceived enjoyment and usefulness were generically found to explain intention to use applications for both users and for non-users. Research limitations/implications: With regards to the impact of social norms, the study finds that further research needs to be done in exploring its impact more thoroughly. The dataset of the research, consisting purely of male-dominated, young smartphone users, make the generalization of results difficult. Practical implications: There are differences regarding what drives the usage of different kinds of mobile applications. In this study, map applications and mobile Internet, are......

...A database is an organized collection of data. The data are typically organized to model relevant aspects of reality in a way that supports processes requiring this information. For example, modeling the availability of rooms in hotels in a way that supports finding a hotel with vacancies. Database management systems (DBMSs) are specially designed applications that interact with the user, other applications, and the database itself to capture and analyze data. A general-purpose database management system (DBMS) is a software system designed to allow the definition, creation, querying, update, and administration of databases. Well-known DBMSs includeMySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server,Oracle, SAP, dBASE, FoxPro, IBM DB2, LibreOffice Base and FileMaker Pro. A database is not generally portable across different DBMS, but different DBMSs can by using standards such as SQL and ODBC or JDBC to allow a single application to work with more than one database.

...of computers in information handling, there appeared a number of databases containing bibliographic details of documents, often married with abstracts, keywords, and so on, and consequently the concept of information retrieval came to mean the retrieval of bibliographic information from stored document databases. Information retrieval is concerned with all the activities related to the organization of, processing of, and access to, information of all forms and formats. An information retrieval system allows people to communicate with an information system or service in order to find information – text, graphic images, sound recordings or video that meet their specific needs. Thus the objective of an information retrieval system is to enable users to find relevant information from an organized collection of documents. In fact, most information retrieval systems are, truly speaking, document retrieval systems, since they are designed to retrieve information about the existence (or non-existence) of documents relevant to a user query. Lancaster3 comments that an information retrieval system does not inform (change the knowledge of) the user on the subject of their enquiry; it merely informs them of the existence (or non-existence) and whereabouts of documents relating to their request. However, this notion of information retrieval has changed since the availability of full text documents in bibliographic databases. Modern information retrieval systems can either retrieve......

...Mobile Banking “Making Cash, Checks, Credit Cards Obsolete” Abstract With the growing and widespread use of smartphones applications for both the iPhone and Android there is very little you can’t do virtually. From banking to shopping, in-person visits to Skype and face time, putting a key in your car to start it to remotely starting your car and setting the temperature, being at home turning on lights and adjusting your thermostat to doing the same functions remotely using a smartphone. Smartphone applications have offered instantaneous, real-time efficiencies in our day-to-day life. Two generations ago you had to physically get up to change the channel on your television. Now you can talk into the remote control for channel changes and special programming. The same goes for banking. Everything is about speed of transaction and efficiency. Cash and credit card transactions are becoming obsolete with the advent of smartphone applications. Today you can shop, make purchases, and make bank deposits and transfers without leaving the comfort of your home.

...chapter 2 Database System Concepts and Architecture he architecture of DBMS packages has evolved from the early monolithic systems, where the whole DBMS software package was one tightly integrated system, to the modern DBMS packages that are modular in design, with a client/server system architecture. This evolution mirrors the trends in computing, where large centralized mainframe computers are being replaced by hundreds of distributed workstations and personal computers connected via communications networks to various types of server machines—Web servers, database servers, file servers, application servers, and so on. In a basic client/server DBMS architecture, the system functionality is distributed between two types of modules.1 A client module is typically designed so that it will run on a user workstation or personal computer. Typically, application programs and user interfaces that access the database run in the client module. Hence, the client module handles user interaction and provides the user-friendly interfaces such as forms- or menu-based GUIs (graphical user interfaces). The other kind of module, called a server module, typically handles data storage, access, search, and other functions. We discuss client/server architectures in more detail in Section 2.5. First, we must study more basic concepts that will give us a better understanding of modern database architectures. In this chapter we present the terminology and basic concepts that will be used......

...Student Database Management System Ajay Shankar Bidyarthy , Abhishek Kumar b.ajay@iitg.ernet.in kumar.ak@iitg.ernet.in November 13, 2012 Abstract: An organized and systematic office solution is essential for all universities and organizations. There are many departments of administration for the maintenance of college information and student databases in any institution. All these departments provide various records regarding students. Most of these track records need to maintain information about the students. This information could be the general details like student name, address, performance, attendance etc or specific information related to departments like collection of data. All the modules in college administration are interdependent. They are maintained manually. So they need to be automated and centralized as, Information from one module will be needed by other modules. For example when a student needs his course completion certificate it needs to check many details about the student like his name, reg number, year of study, exams he attended and many other details. So it needs to contact all the modules that are office, department and examination and result of students. With that in mind, we overhauled the existing Student Database Management System and made necessary improvement to streamline the processes. Administrators using the system will find that the process of recording and retrieving students information and managing their classes,......

...2 RELATIONAL MODEL: CONCEPTS, CONSTRAINTS, LANGUAGES, DESIGN, AND PROGRAMMING 5 The Relational Data Model and Relational Database Constraints This chapter opens Part II of the book on relational databases. The relational model was first introduced by Ted Codd of IBM Research in 1970 in a classic research publication "System R4 Relational." (Codd 1970), and attracted immediate attention due to its simplicity, practicality, and mathematical foundation. The model uses the concept of a mathematical relation—which looks somewhat like a table of values—as its basic building block, and has its theoretical basis in set theory and first-order predicate logic. This is a classic example where sound theoretical principles are effectively applied for strong practical advantages. In this chapter we discuss the basic characteristics of the relational model and its constraints. The first commercial implementations of the relational model became available in the early 1980s, such as the Oracle DBMS and the SQL/DS system on the MVS operating system by IBM. Since then, the model has been implemented in a large number of commercial systems. Current popular relational DBMSs (RDBMSs) include DB2 and Informix Dynamic Server (from IBM), Oracle and Rdb (from Oracle), and SQL Server and Access (from Microsoft). Some other commercial relational DBMSs used are Sybase (also known as Sybase SQL Server), Paradox, and Foxbase. Recently, some open source relational DBMSs, such as MySQL...

...4600-01 INTRO TO DATABASES CLOUD DATABASES SUBMITTED BY: ALICIA RUCKER INSTRUCTOR: DR. LUIS VIDAL SPRING 2016 Abstract A cloud database is a database that typically runs on a cloud computing platform. Users can run databases on the cloud independently, using a virtual machine image, or they can purchase access to a database service, maintained by a cloud database provider. There is a proposed 5 layer cloud architecture. The External Layer, which is the first, is closest to the user. The second layer is the Conceptual Middleware Layer. The third layer is the Conceptual Layer. In this layer programming techniques, transaction management, query processing and optimization are considered. The fourth layer is the Physical Middleware Layer, where interoperability between various platforms is considered. Last, there is the Physical Layer which is concerned with how data is stored and accessibility. A cloud database management system is a distributed database that delivers computing as a service instead of a product. It is the sharing of resources, software, and information between multiply devices over a network which is mostly the internet. An example of this is Software as a Service or SaaS. SaaS is an application that is delivered through the browser to customers. A database management system is a software package with computer programs that control the creation, maintenance, and use of a database. It allows organizations to conveniently develop databases for......

...breathtaking growth of the telecommunication companies in India over the last twenty years has made a history. The economic resurgence affected in the early 1990s brought around a paradigm shift on the overall business scenario of India. With the arrival of private telecommunication companies in India, the industry observed introduction of mobile phones into the Indian market and it became extremely popular amongst the Indian masses. India's telecom sector has shown huge expansion in the recent years in all respects of industrial growth due to liberalization in Government policies after 1991. Removal of restrictions on foreign capital investment and industrial de-licensing has allowed various private players to enter into the Indian telecommunication market. The Indian telecom market is regulated by Telecommunication Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) which acts as an independent regulator was set up in 1997 by the Indian Government. Despite several controversies, the TRAI has earned a reputation for transparency and competency. Today two types of mobile phone service providers operates in the Indian market, they are • Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) • Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) www.abhinavjournal.com 114 Abhinav International Monthly Refereed Journal of Research In Management & Technology ISSN – 2320-0073 Volume II, January’13 Presently India has nearly 200 million telephone lines making it the third largest......

...Mobile database A mobile database is either a stationary database that can be connected to by a mobile computing device ( eg smartphone and PDA) over a mobile network OR A database, which is actually stored by the mobile device this could be list of contacts, price information distance travelled or any other information Many applications require the ability to download information from an information repository and operate on this information even when out of range or disconnected. An EXAMPLE of this is your contacts and calendar on the phone. In this scenario a user would require access to update information from files in the home directories on a server or customer records from a database. This type of access and work load generated by such users is different from the traditional workloads seen in client-server system of today CONSIDERATION • Mobile users must be able to work without a network connection due to poor or non existent connections. A cache could be maintained to hold recently accessed data and transactions so that they are not lost due to connection failure. Users might not require access to truly live data, only recently modified data, and uploading of changing might be deferred until reconnected • Bandwidth must be conserved (a common requirement on wireless networks that charge per megabyte or data transferred) • Mobile computing devices tend to have slower CPU and limited battery life • Users with multiple device (eg. Smartphone and tablet)......
