Currently I'm working on this system data. I have all the data except for line susceptance. Is there any method to calculate this value. I can't find this data in the internet.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Nur Atiqah Abdul Rahman,
Take a look at the presented sources below:
In electrical engineering, susceptance (B) is the imaginary part of admittance, where the real part is conductance. The reciprocal of admittance is impedance, where the imaginary part is reactance, and the real part is resistance. In SI units, susceptance is measured in siemens. The term was coined by C.P. Steinmetz in an 1894 paper. In some sources Oliver Heaviside is given credit for coining the term, or with introducing the concept under the name permittance.

The research ‘field’ of Digital health is dedicated to realising digital technologies’ potential and developing knowledge about their feasibility and impacts. With the introduction of several new journals (such as Sage Digital Health, The Lancet Digital Health and Frontiers in Digital Health), Digital health is in many ways an emerging field.
Yet, drawing on a critical review of the articles in the most prominent multidisciplinary digital health journals in our article , we show that the digital health field has not profoundly engaged with its core subject, namely technology. The features of digital technologies remain in the background, and research is disconnected from the complexities of healthcare settings, including multiple technologies, established practices and people. Instead, the overarching focus in the Digital Health literature is the processing capabilities of digital technologies and their posited impacts. The technologies are treated as black boxes and the context of the lab seems to be considered similar to the context of use (care, planning, coordination etc).
I would argue that if we do not take this issue seriously, the potential of the Digital Health field will be limited and eventually a dead end.
How can we develop Digital Health into a field where technology and the context of use take a more prominent role?
Relevant answer
Answer
Digital technology has been a revolutionary foray in various sectors and domains like education, industry, research, and recently, healthcare. The concept of digital health is an evolving entity and has gained tremendous importance in the time of the Pandemic with social distancing and lockdowns forcing the entire globe to adopt digital health and health technologies on a large scale. The digital health concept was first introduced in 2000 by Seth Fran, which largely encompasses internet-based applications and media to enhance medical subject matter, commerce, and connectivity. With the advancement in technology, digital health has expanded to encompass a much wider set of scientific concepts and technologies, including the internet of things, big data technology, artificial intelligence techniques, genomics, analytics, wearables, mobile applications, and telemedicine. The various domains of digital health have been explained by WHO in 2018.
With the advancement in digital health and literacy rate in the country, The Government of India laid importance on digitalization in India’s healthcare sector in the National Health Policy, 2017 using The National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) which can act as the foundation on which national digital health ecosystem can be built. On the occasion of the 74th Independence Day, the Government of India embarked on its journey to achieve Universal Health Coverage by launching the National Digital Health Mission.
NDHM aims to build a holistic, integrated, and comprehensive digital health ecosystem that will lay the foundation of a strong public digital infrastructure, digitally empower individuals, patients, health care staff, health institutions, and aid streamline the healthcare delivery system of the country. This will help inequitable, affordable, and accessible health care to all. It may be useful for health planners and policymakers as well in monitoring and surveillance of health-related events better and in an efficient way.

Dear Experts,

I humbly invite experts to discuss topics about meta-analysis in social science. What are the principles researchers should know before start writing? What are the tips in choosing topic (how to choose a meaningful topic that can make contribution)? What is the potential of meta-analysis in future scholarship development and theoretical contribution?
Best regards,
Thanks
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Siwei Sun,
Take a look at some auxiliary info:
How do you tell if a paper is a meta-analysis?
Within the Publication Type search box, scroll down until you see Meta-Analysis. High light Meta-Analysis by clicking on it, and then continue scrolling until you see “Systematic Review.” Hold down the “Ctrl” key on a PC, or the "Command" key on a Mac and click “Systematic Review”.
How many studies do you need for a meta-analysis?
two studies
Finally, the authors take up the question "How many studies do you need to do a meta-analysis?" and show that, given the need for a conclusion, the answer is "two studies," because all other synthesis techniques are less transparent and/or are less likely to be valid.
What data do I need for a meta-analysis?
The two summary statistics commonly used for meta-analysis of continuous data are the mean difference (MD) and the standardized mean difference (SMD). Other options are available, such as the ratio of means.
When would researchers choose to conduct a meta-analysis?
If we are working with a fixed-effect model, then it makes sense to perform a meta- analysis as soon as we have two studies, since a summary based on two or more studies yields a more precise estimate of the true effect than either study alone.

For instance, in urban transportation there are several participants, e.g., mobility service providers, infrastructure and traffic management centres, passengers, local-, and state governance etc. Each participant collect/generate- and store data. The level of integration would be higher if either
  • the participants share their data with each other (which would be quite idealistic), or
  • there are a data platform, to where participants transfer their data (this can be a data warehouse for example).
High integration would be advantageous, as development projects require data for efficient execution. The main reason of my related research is to enable efficient, standardized and data-based decision support for transportation development projects.
I've thought about interpreting data systems as graphs and calculate the level of integration, based on the number of different connections/relations between the participants, but this may result in a rather decentralised/overcomplicated system, in which, the more connections are, the higher the integration is.
I would aim to
  • estimate the optimal number of connections between participants, and
  • develop a data warehouse framework, where participants do not need to communicate but they transfer their data to the warehouse, in which the data is stored in a structured manner.
In the next step, maybe compare the two solutions. I know there are several policy/management related barriers of data sharing (specially between the participants), this way, the data warehouse seems like a better idea. Of course, sharing data with the warehouse may assume some central legal actions (e.g., law enforcement of data sharing).

There are textbooks that focus specifically on methods for researching information systems, including:

Williamson & Johanson (2018) Research Methods: Information, Systems & Contexts.
However, I would encourage you to introduce the 'bigger picture' (such as the research landscape in the attached diagram) before presenting specific methods.
Textbook material should also be supplemented and updated with recent journal articles that present the state-of-the-art for specific methods. These include:
Davison et al. (2021) Improving action research by integrating methods, Journal of the Association of Information Systems.
Hair et al. (2017) An updated and expanded assessment of PLS-SEM in information systems research, Industrial Management & Data Systems.

Glaser and Strauss did not agree on selective coding. Glaser stated that it is possible a researcher to reach a level of ijtihad by working on a subject to create a hypothesis, but Strauss and Corbin say that after qualitative work, there is another stage(statistical test). That is, the researcher collects information from a sample that Klein 2016 calls a sample of exploration.
Which one do you follow?
Refer to:
- On Emergence and Forcing in Information Systems Grounded Theory Studies: The Case of Strauss and Corbin
-Developing a grounded theory approach: a comparison of Glaser and Strauss
- Constructing Grounded Theory: A Practical Guide Through Qualitative Analysis
Relevant answer
Grounded theory in the social sciences is a systematic methodology for building a theory based on data analysis. Sometimes translated into Russian as "grounded theory" or "ascent to theory"
The main features of grounded theory are that theories are developed on the basis of qualitative data (and not selected in advance and checked or refined on empirical material), and data collection and analysis is carried out in parallel. The main procedures used are careful and detailed coding of data, comparison of data and analytical concepts, writing work notes to develop categories.
Grounded theory data collection and analysis is carried out in parallel. Data analysis includes the following main steps:
1) Coding - the extraction of primary analytical concepts (codes) directly from the interview text or other data source. At the initial stage of the analysis, open or primary coding is carried out. Grounded theory methodologists recommend line-by-line coding by parsing text line by line and assigning to each line a short notation of “what's going on” on that line. In some cases, word-by-word coding is recommended. With further data collection and comparison, some of the primary codes are discarded, while others acquire analytical significance.
2) Writing notes (memoing) about each of the formed analytical concepts or categories. Writing notes is an intermediate step between coding and the first draft of the final analysis. Writing notes begins by highlighting the first analytical concept and continues through the process of analyzing new data and building theories.
3) Integration, refinement and formulation of theories. As categories are formed from codes, they are combined into a theoretical model, which is built around one central category. In this process, the method of constant comparison plays an important role, as well as the analysis of negative cases that do not confirm the model. In essence, the researcher creates a model explaining the phenomenon under study from the very beginning of data collection, and verifies its adequacy in the process of further data collection and analysis.

Is there a way I can extract the sub hourly rainfall data for Australia. Basically I am looking to obtain the rainfall intensity data on 5min, 10m and 20 min and so on. I have looked at the Design rainfall data system(2016) which gives the probabilities.
Relevant answer
Answer
Most research grade meteorology and hydrology sites, and some Universities, cities, reservoir weather sites use recording raingauges and stream flow stations. The older type recording gauges often used strip charts, that for simplicity may have been transferred and reported as daily values. Some may have archived their data for possible future analysis. Strip charts typically are difficult to read accurately and require some interpretation of times and values. Many of the new type recorders measure and record digitally, either by weight or tipping bucket. Again, though this detailed data at subdaily or subhourly rates are seldom reported, and one would have to search out the original records for this level of detail. If the researcher collected 15 minute data, it would be difficult to go to sub15 minute records without some correlation and interpretation such as with streamflow or well data, which would most likely not be reportable as research grade, or footnoted as estimates. Although you goal is rainfall, I mentioned local streamflow or well level data records which might be correlated back to rainfall record and intensity, but with likely difficulty. Some research stations may have also singled out individual storms of magnitude and evaluated records with intensity detail. One can imagine why the 288 five minute increments in a day (105,120 five minute periods in a year) are not reported, so most often it may be searching for, and selecting individual storm periods or associated floods of noted intensity for analysis and reporting. Most USGS sites collect and report data at 15 minute intervals. When we were conducting hydrologic data at the University of Missouri Forest on small catchments, we did use 5 minute intervals, but that is probably atypical. If by chance you find Excel file with 5 minute rainfall data, it is not too difficult to develop columns with 10, 15, 20, ... accumulations, which can later be searched if looking for rainfall intensity extremes.

Dear community,
My master thesis will be related to Blockchain, more specifically to auditing this technology.
I am currently creating an IT audit program for Blockchain. This intends to be a general audit program for this technology, including as many areas as possible in order to have one main document that could be used for different audit purposes  (e.g. auditing ITGC, governance audits, etc).
My initial and main contribution to start this project has been the ISACA audit program (https://www.isaca.org/bookstore/audit-control-and-security-essentials/wapbap). The idea would be to have a "2.0 version", including different tabs for other areas, mapping the processes with COBIT2019, adding a few more columns that could help for the testing process and the final result could be an "upgraded" version of the ISACA Blockchain audit program, ready to be used for auditing Blockchain.
What do you think? Any ideas/suggestions?  Has anyone done something similar? 
Regarding the testing of General IT Controls for Blockchain (p.e. a tool with this technology), anyone with expertise on this? I have read a very interesting article about this topic:

My field of interest in industrial engineering was quality related topics like SQC, SPC, DoE, Six Sigma, etc. Now I'm looking for a proper topic for my master thesis which combines Data Science and Quality related topics.

Quite often, QC data can be significantly unbalanced. I had a data set with 20+ variables and 100,000+ subjects from a line of a particular product, and 100-120 of the subjects came back for warranty work. The goal was to find the important variables to help predict which products would come back for warranty work. All the standard statistical methods failed. I didn't.
Maybe you can find a data set that has highly imbalanced data (Like cancer) and find something interesting.

Given the dynamic developments and innovation in computing, IT and Information Systems Industry, it appears that there is a shortage of well qualified professionals who will push the edge of innovation, research and development much further that we could possibly imagine.
Relevant answer
Answer
What are the most effective methodologies to train, educate and recruit future graduate and post-graduate students and scholars in Computing, IT & IS?
Perhaps following approach can be considered:
  1. Relevant government agencies / ministries should bring both universities and commercial enterprises together to discuss what kind of latest ICT skills that commercial enterprises required from universities - so that universities can produce the right ICT graduates for the job market.
  2. Recruit ICT lecturers from industry that have the practical ICT industrial knowledge & experience (from vendor or end user environment) - so that they can teach students what is relevant or how to apply those knowledge in actual working environment.
  3. Train / expose academia IT lecturers (especially those who had lost touch with the hands on technical or actual working environment) to the latest happening & trends in ICT commercial words
  4. Train the HR departments / HR recruiters / Head Hunter agencies etc. on the latest computing, IT & IS technologies / trends at high level so that they can get the right IT employees for the right jobs.
  5. Universities should expose their ICT students to short-term 2-3 months per year internship program so that they can apply what they had learned - if there is learning-working gap, universities need to investigate & address the gap accordingly.

Hi everyone,
  • what is the effect of ( "non-technical, or “soft factors”, such as culture, needs of individuals, habits and emotions)on methodology acceptance by individual?
  • I would be grateful if you could suggest and introduce me more resources on soft factors and the effect of them on methodology acceptance.
  • And if we want to focus on " soft factors and individual acceptance" thorough methodology we should utilize "People-oriented methodology" like ETHICS?
Relevant answer
Answer
Acceptance from individuals is not taking into consideration soft factors generally as IS as a topic encompass an audience of IT individuals who carry with them logical traits and do not leave much space to persuasion or ambiguity. However, in my experience, I have noticed that those people appreciate social experiments and if the methodology is human-centric you will have a better chance to be accepted. They are not necessarily monetary driven and you will require a value exchange that they need. Try to exchange new knowledge and breakthroughs instead of simple cooperation, find values that can be shared in order to achieve true collaboration. Confucius once said that knowing what you know and knowing what you do not know is real knowledge. Find that breakeven and start your exchange.

It appears that causal-comparative research designs are not common in Information System science. Would like to learn if my observation is accurate.
Relevant answer
Answer
A causal-comparative design is a research design that seeks to find relationships between independent and dependent variables after an action or event has already occurred. It seeks to establish a cause-effect relationship between two or more variables. The researcher does not assign groups and does not manipulate the independent variable.
The researcher's goal is to determine whether the independent variable affected the outcome, or dependent variable, by comparing two or more groups of individuals. It typically starts with the effect and seeks to find possible causes and is used when studying differences where the variables cannot be manipulated.
Types of Causal-Comparative Research:
1) Retrospective Causal-Comparative Research – In this type of comparative research, the researcher is investigating a research question after the effects have already occurred. The researcher studies how one variable may have influenced another variable.  This is the most common type of causal-comparative research,
2). Prospective Causal-Comparative Research - Researchers using this type of method begin by studying the causes and then investigating the possible effects.
Causal-comparative research designs are mostly used in education, social sciences, etc. but may not not be used in information systems science because of
a different subject matter and technical problems.

Good day colleagues,
I hoe that you provide me with a template or even a sample of how to provide a system analysis report for an android platform and a web application. What are the main elements that should be included in such reports and how to present the links of the user interface (UI)?
Thanks in advance
Relevant answer
Answer
Ahmed, I did a search on "system analysis report" and the first example is of a working system. I personally had never seen a report like this one, but I include it here for completeness. https://www.emerson.com/documents/automation/manuals-guides-guardian-sample-system-analysis-report-pss-en-67944.pdf
Then, I found something that might be used in any situation. It is a rather comprehensive and broad document template that at first glance looks fairly good. https://www.ogcio.gov.hk/en/our_work/infrastructure/methodology/system_development/doc/G61c_Effective_SAnD_Guide_Appendix_C_v1_1.pdf
I agree with others on this thread that requirements is where one normally starts when building a new system of any type. But it is more than that of course. What SDLC methodology you select for your project will influence the deliverables you and your team will need to prepare.
That said, focusing on what a system analysis report might include for an android project, this website has some templates that might be useful for you. https://clearbridgemobile.com/how-to-build-a-mobile-app-requirements-document/
Finally, I did come across a list of software development deliverable templates that I think would be useful for any project, especially those employing the waterfall approach. https://eas.rutgers.edu/?ht_kb=system-project-templates-sdlc
I will poke around a little more, and if I find anything else I will post it. Hope that helps somewhat.

Since they are both relational data systems, how do they differ in application?
Relevant answer
Answer
I believe this is an important point to note. A fairly common mistake can be made during implementation of data warehouse development assuming that a data warehouse is just like a database. There are fundamental differences that need to be noted between the traditional database and a data warehouse, normalization versus de-normalization. According to Arshad (2003), many do not realize until it is too late that a data warehouse is a process, encompassing many components, whose successful implementation requires knowledge of both business and technology — according to Erick (2003), recommended in his study on teaching Data Warehousing to Undergraduates that the entire concept of normalization is not required for a data warehouse (DW) development. Erick added that the end users are often statisticians, not computer people. Characteristics of the star-schema are explored (de-normalization, implicit hierarchies, relational qualities that still exist (relational sentences), granularity and the correct usage of the time dimension).
Normalized schemas try to avoid data dependencies. However, even highly normalized schemas have dependencies. Based on a study to improve analysis of large complex database by Tilmann and Meikel (2011),  to increase performance for analytical processing, less normalized or highly de-normalized schemas are used, such as in data warehouses or online analytical processing (OLAP) systems. These systems show many different types of dependencies. De-normalization provides the flexibility for addressing requirements that are ad hoc and unplanned. It is quite suitable for the data warehouse as a normalized database limits the queries that can be run against.
With Regards,
Moh.

Hi my name is Magnus Andreasson & I´m studying Business Intelligence at the University of Skövde in Sweden. I´m on my 3rd & final year which means that I´m in the process of writing my bachelor dissertation, which is on the subject of developing a Digital Analytics Maturity Model. I´ve choosen to do the study as a Design Science Research-project, which made the most sense and for the datacollection-process I will apply a Delpi-survey. Due to lack of time I will only realize two iterations, one for a requirements-collection round, that together with a literature review will form an initial base-model, and one round that evaluates that initial model, where round 2 will consist of modifying the model based on the input & feedback I get from the data. The respondents of the delphi-survey will be made up by 6 experts in the form of researcher that have somekind of relationship to Maturity Models.
This is why I would greatly appreciate any input & feedback on the development-process of my DAMM. If you have any experiience in maturity models or enterprise architecure I will be honored if you would contribute with your input & thoughts by answering this survey (only 9 questions + 1 open question) & if you wish, attend the second round and give your feedback, suggestions & thoughts on the initial design of a Digital Analytics Maturity Model.
So if you feel like contributing just click the link below. Many thanks!
