Projektarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,0, Technische Hochschule Köln, ehem. Fachhochschule Köln (Informatik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die moderne Softwareentwicklung ist eine noch relativ junge Disziplin, die im Hinblick auf die Erfordernisse der Zielerreichung mit der Zeit immer weiter an dynamischeren Vorgehensmodellen und, eingebettet darin, Methodologie gewinnt. Die Zielerreichung legt gute Software im qualitativen Sinne nahe. Das wahre Ziel einer jeden Software ist die Schaffung von Mehrwerten fu?r den Endverbraucher, egal ob für den Geschäftskunden oder den Privatanwender. So werden aus technischer und methodologischer Sicht Hilfsmittel geschaffen, die die Zielerreichung im Hinblick auf vorhandene Arbeitsmittel möglichst zufriedenstellend erfu?llen sollen. Qualität bedeutet also gute Software in der Art der Entwicklung und in der Güte des vorgegebenen Prozesses. Eine Möglichkeit hierzu soll in diesem Praxisprojekt untersucht werden: Accelerators fu?r die Agile Softwareentwicklung. Welchen genauen Zweck erfüllen Accelerators und wie können diese zu einer bedeutsamen Effizienzsteigerung in Agile Softwareprojekten verhelfen? Darüber hinaus kann sich der Softwareentwicklungsprozess im Zeitverlauf schnell als zunehmend komplex herausstellen - zur effizienteren Beherrschung werden hierbei Hilfsmittel wie die Stacey Complexity Matrix herangezogen. Abschließend soll es auch darum gehen, ob das ideale Tool-Set, bestehend aus unterschiedlichen Accelerator-Typen, überhaupt existiert.

HL7 for BizTalk provides a detailed guide to the planning and delivery of a HL7-compliant system using the dedicated Microsoft BizTalk for HL7 Accelerator. The HL7 Primary Standard, its various versions, and the use of the HL7 Accelerator for BizTalk are broken out and fully explained. HL7 for BizTalk provides clear guidance on the specific healthcare scenarios that HL7 is designed to overcome and provides working case study models of how HL7 solutions can be implemented in BizTalk, deployed in practice and monitored during operation. Special emphasis is given in this book to the BizTalk reporting functionality and its use to provide HL7 oversight within organizations. HL7 for BizTalk is suitable for use with BizTalk versions from 2006 R2 to 2013 R2 to suit the reader’s organization. All three versions of the HL7 standard and their differences, are explained.

Parallel Programming with OpenACC is a modern, practical guide to implementing dependable computing systems. The book explains how anyone can use OpenACC to quickly ramp-up application performance using high-level code directives called pragmas. The OpenACC directive-based programming model is designed to provide a simple, yet powerful, approach to accelerators without significant programming effort. Author Rob Farber, working with a team of expert contributors, demonstrates how to turn existing applications into portable GPU accelerated programs that demonstrate immediate speedups. The book also helps users get the most from the latest NVIDIA and AMD GPU plus multicore CPU architectures (and soon for Intel® Xeon PhiT as well). Downloadable example codes provide hands-on OpenACC experience for common problems in scientific, commercial, big-data, and real-time systems. Topics include writing reusable code, asynchronous capabilities, using libraries, multicore clusters, and much more. Each chapter explains how a specific aspect of OpenACC technology fits, how it works, and the pitfalls to avoid. Throughout, the book demonstrates how the use of simple working examples that can be adapted to solve application needs. Presents the simplest way to leverage GPUs to achieve application speedups Shows how OpenACC works, including working examples that can be adapted for application needs Allows readers to download source code and slides from the book´s companion web page
This book presents an evaluation methodology to design future FPGA fabrics incorporating hard embedded blocks (HEBs) to accelerate applications. This methodology will be useful for selection of blocks to be embedded into the fabric and for evaluating the performance gain that can be achieved by such an embedding. The authors illustrate the use of their methodology by studying the impact of HEBs on two important bioinformatics applications: protein docking and genome assembly. The book also explains how the respective HEBs are designed and how hardware implementation of the application is done using these HEBs. It shows that significant speedups can be achieved over pure software implementations by using such FPGA-based accelerators. The methodology presented in this book may also be used for designing HEBs for accelerating software implementations in other domains besides bioinformatics. This book will prove useful to students, researchers, and practicing engineers alike. B.
