Cloud Computing gets increasingly established in industrial practice as an option for modelling cost-efficient and demand-oriented information systems. Despite the increasing acceptance of cloud computing within the industry, many important questions remain unanswered. Issues related to the best software architectures decisions for cloud-based systems are faced with the question of appropriate techniques applying at early phase like requirements engineering. The goal of this paper defines a design of a mapping study to verify and identify the existence of relevant research gaps, which refers mainly to requirements models, tools or methods for cloud systems (SaaS). The conclusion of this mapping study design reinforces and actively encourages the necessity of the complete execution (and replication) of a systematic mapping study regarding the synergy of requirements engineering (e.g.: with model-driven issues) applied for a cloud computing.

Effort estimation for ERP projects - a systematic review
Omural, Neslihan Kucukates; Demirörs, Onur (2017-09-01)
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are large scale integrated systems covering most of the business processes of an enterprise. ERP projects differ from software projects with customization, modification, integration and data conversion phases. Most of the time effort and time estimations are performed in an ad-hoc fashion in ERP projects and as a result they frequently suffer from time and budget overruns. Although there is no consensus on a methodology to estimate size, effort and cost of ERP proj...
CLOUDGEN: Workload generation for the evaluation of cloud computing systems CLOUDGEN: Bulut Bilişim Sistemlerinin Başarim Deǧerlendirmesi icin Iş Yuku Uretimi
Koltuk, Furkan; Yazar, Alper; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2019-04-01)
In this paper, we propose CLOUDGEN workflow that produces synthetic workloads for Infrastructure and Platform as a Service for the evaluation of resource management approaches in cloud computing systems. To this end, CLOUDGEN systematically processes and clusters records in a given workload trace and fits distributions for different workload parameters within the clusters. Different than the previous work, clustering is carried out to produce different virtual machine types for achieving models that are sui...

Providing automated and networked solutions on the cloud will remarkably facilitate ongoing digitalization efforts in Metrology and the calibration industry. The AutoRFPower application was developed to automate the RF power measurement process and uncertainty calculations. This study presents our ongoing research on moving this application to a cloud environment and adapting it to perform power sensor calibrations. The cloud-based application initiates communication with calibration equipment, transfers te...
Implementing Service-Oriented Architecture in Organizations
Choi, Jae; Nazareth, Derek L.; Jain, Hemant K. (2010-03-01)
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) has been promoted as a technology that can enhance information systems agility, interoperability between applications, deployment flexibility, and reusability. As with any new information technology (IT), the decision to adopt SOA cannot be taken lightly, given the nontrivial investment in economic and personnel resources. The complexity associated with industry-wide diffusion, coupled with organization, industry, and environment factors, contributes to a lack of a clear ...
Hardware implementation of an active feature tracker for surveillance applications
Solmaz, Berkan; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
The integration of image sensors and high performance processors into embedded systems enabled the development of intelligent vision systems. In this thesis, we developed an active autonomous system to be used for surveillance applications. The proposed system detects a single moving object in the field of view automatically and tracks it in a wide area by controlling the pan-tilt-zoom features of the camera. The system can also go to an alarm state to warn the user. The processing unit of the system is a T...
