Green sustainable telco cloud

Bringing cloud computing from the Internet domain to Next Generation Networks (NGN) in order to provide Telco cloud services will leverage the use of NGN, reduce costs and create many value-added services. It is therefore becoming critical for world-class carriers, like Bell and Telus, to adopt a cloudbased communications model. However, unlike public Internet clouds, a Telco cloud has specific requirements, such as performance, scalability, security and isolation.

Despite the change in usage and application (“Barcode Scanning Hits Some Big Milestones,” 2011), QR codes have kept the initial appearance. Black blocks in a square format still represent QR codes. This project, QR Artist, proposes humanizing these codes by inventing a framework that creates artistic QR codes and provides marketing analysis tools and reports for the customers.

Real-time Analytics and Decision Support for Patient Flow Management

Large community hospitals and teaching hospitals in Ontario operate at congestion levels most of the time. This translates into long wait times for the patients, cancelled procedures, undue stress for the clinical staff, and inefficiency in hospital operations. In order to address the bottlenecks in patient flows, decisions are made by the clinical staff based on incomplete data which may be several hours to several days old, manually, in an ad hoc manner.

2012 Technology Industry labour study

The project is about analyzing the Technology Industry in British Columbia. The study helps predict the British Columbia (BC) technology labour market through quantitative and qualitative analysis of answered questionnaires from technology companies in BC. A report summarizing the findings will be submitted to Cindy Pearson, COO of BCTIA by the end of December. In January, BCTIA will share the report with all technology companies in the BC region.
