    Explore Reasons for Rejection of Agricultural Technologies in Underdeveloped Areas with Water Scarcity Problem

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Choobchian, Pooria (Author) ; Kiamehr, Mehdi (Supervisor) ; Maleki, Ali (Supervisor)
    Respect to increasing water scarcity in the world, it is necessary to ameliorate agriculture methods in order to efficiency enhancement. However, it seems that in underdeveloped counties faced with the water problem, barriers exist which prevent farmers from adopting new technologies. For researching this problem, drop pressure technology studied in Salmas County locate in West Azerbaijan state in Iran. The purpose of this research is to explore factors of lack of diffusion of new agricultural technologies in underdeveloped areas with water scarcity problem. The research problem is that notwithstanding government facilities, the diffusion rate of drop pressure technology in this area is very... 

    Investigating the Behavioral Intention in Using Mobile-bank Application Using Theory of Planned Behavior

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghavam, Mohammad Masoud (Author) ; Kianmehr, Mahdi (Supervisor)
    The use of mobile banking software in today's society is very common and mobile banking applications provide many different services for people. In Iran, on the other hand, most of the transactions take place in the context of the use of ATMs and websites, which have fewer services than mobile apps. In the present study, an attempt had done to find effective factors and their effectiveness on people's intention to use the mobile bank application. To do this, the theory of planned behavior by Ajzen is used in which people intention is affected by three main parts of attitude, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control. Each of these variables consists of beliefs that constitute the...

    Semantic log based replication model for optimizing heterogeneous DBMS interaction

    , Article 2009 1st International Conference on Advances in Databases, Knowledge, and Data Applications, DBKDA 2009, Gosier, 1 March 2009 through 6 March 2009 ; 2009 , Pages 138-142 ; 9780769535500 (ISBN) Farahmand Nejad, A ; Kharazmi, S ; Bayati, S ; Golmohammadi, S. K ; Abolhassani, H ; IARIA ; Sharif University of Technology
    The growth of database application usage requires DataBase Management Systems (DBMS) that are accessible, reliable, and dependable. One approach to handle these requirements is replication mechanism. Replication mechanism can be divided into various categories. Some related works consider two categories for replication mechanisms: heterogeneous and homogenous however majority of them classify them in three groups: physical, trigger-based and log based schema. Log-based replication mechanisms are the most widely used category among DBMS vendors. Adapting such approach for heterogeneous systems is a complex task, because of lack of log understanding in the other end. Semantic technologies... 

    Towards a comprehensive IT management methodology

    , Article IEEE Engineering Management Review ; 2021 ; 03608581 (ISSN) Samiei, E ; Habibi, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc  2021
    As the role of IT becomes more eminent, IT management frameworks become more demanding. Although each of the IT management frameworks focuses on a particular part of this wide scope, implementing frameworks individually, wastes budget and time and results in incompatible or redundant artefacts. The question we want to answer in this research is if a comprehensive IT management methodology could be implemented to provide all the effective results of different IT management frameworks, yet to avoid redundancies and costs of implementing each framework separately. In this study, the integration of the ITIL framework as the most well-known IT service management framework, the COBIT framework as...

    It is beyond dispute that technological change acts as a driver of economic growth. In developing countries where highly suffer from lack of this process, incremental innovation is considered as main source of technology capability building and development In moving toward this pass and to meet with time pressure of catching up, developing countries acquire the initial required knowledge base through technology absorption from outside sources; On the other hand as development is a lengthy process, it is important that the absorbed knowledge still has the potential of more advancement in future. Therefore a selection instrument with ability of assessing different knowledge base or... 

    Proposing a Methodology for Integrating ITIL and COBIT within IT Enterprise Architecture

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Samiei, Ehsan (Author) ; Habibi, Jafar (Supervisor)
    The purpose of IT management and governance is to empower the alignment between IT and business in organizations. IT management and governance focuses on the optimal utilization of IT resources in order to support business processes, address the organization’s needs and meet the organization’s goals. Even though every IT governance framework emphasizes on a particular dimension of this extensive domain, the common nature of all these frameworks, which is IT and business alignment, would make the efforts put into integrating them desirable and reasonable. Implementing different IT governance frameworks in separate projects, not only results in redundant or inconsistent outputs and artifacts,...
