Future Trends In Information Technology - Page 33

 Organizational change management - An approach to shifting/transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations from a current state to a desired future state. It is an organizational process aimed at helping change stakeholders to accept and embrace changes in their business environment or individuals in their personal lives. Pattern recognition - The assignment of a label to a given input value Physics - A science that deals with matter and energy and their interactions Platform design - An operating system, the computer system's coordinating program, which in turn is built on the instruction set for a processor or microprocessor, the hardware that performs logic operations and manages data movement in the computer. http://searchservervirtualization.techtarget.com/definition/platform Power consumption and management –Devices which consume electric energy to generate desired output. Prediction – Something that is forecasted based on current trends. Predictive Analytics - Describes any approach to data mining with four attributes: an emphasis on prediction (rather than description, classification or clustering), rapid analysis measured in hours or days (rather than the stereotypical months of traditional data mining), an emphasis on the business relevance of the resulting insights (no ivory tower analyses) and (increasingly) an emphasis on ease of use, thus making the tools accessible to business users. http://www.gartner.com/itglossary/predictive-analytics/ Predictive modeling (role based) – A commonly used statistical technique to predict future behavior. Predictive modeling solutions are a form of data-mining technology that works by analyzing historical and current data and generating a model to help predict future outcomes. In predictive modeling, data is collected, a statistical model is formulated, predictions are made, and the model is validated (or revised) as additional data becomes available. http://www.gartner.com/itglossary/predictive-modeling/ Predictive modeling/prescriptive - A process used in predictive analytics to create a statistical model of future behavior. Predictive analytics - The area of data mining concerned with forecasting probabilities and trends. http://searchdatamanagement.techtarget.com/definition/predictive-modeling Privacy - What personal information can be shared with whom; Whether messages can be exchanged without anyone else seeing them; Whether and how one can send messages anonymously. http://searchdatamanagement.techtarget.com/definition/privacy Problem solving -Cognitive modeling is an area of computer science that deals with simulating human problem solving and mental task processes in a computerized model. http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/cognitive-modeling Process analytics – The process or method of logical analysis. Process design – The process or method of conceiving and planning a specific function. Process efficiency - Effective operation as measured by a comparison of production with cost (as in energy, time, and money), or the ratio of the useful energy delivered by a dynamic system to the energy supplied to it. Process management -Specific to the communications environment, the practice of telecom expense management (TEM) encompasses the business processes conducted by IT and finance departments to acquire the provision (and support) of corporate telecommunications assets. http://www.gartner.com/it-glossary/process-management-2/ Programming – The process of designing, writing, testing, debugging, and maintaining the course code of computer programs. Project management - is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. http://www.gartner.com/it-glossary/project-management/ Psychology – an applied science discipline that involves the scientific study of mental functions and behavior. Quantum mechanics theory – A theory of matter that is based on the concept of the possession of wave properties by elementary particles, that affords a mathematical interpretation of the structure and interactions of matter on the basis of these properties, and that incorporates within it quantum theory and the uncertainty principle. Radio Frequency theory - Any of the electromagnetic wave frequencies that lie in the range extending from below 3 kilohertz to about 300 gigahertz and that include the frequencies used for communications signals (as for radio and television broadcasting and cell-phone and satellite transmissions or radar signals. Radio Frequency (RF)- Refers to alternating current (AC) having characteristics such that, if the current is input to an antenna, an electromagnetic (EM) field is generated suitable for wireless broadcasting and/or communications. http://searchnetworking.techtarget.com/definition/radio-frequency                      ©Copyright North Central Texas InterLink, Inc.
