What      in your opinion is the single most important motivation for the      development of hashing schemes while there already are other techniques      that can be used to realize the same functionality provided by hashing      methods? 
3. Must a hash table be implemented using an array? Will an alternative data structure achieve the same efficiency? If yes, why? If no, what condition must the data structure satisfy to ensure the same efficiency as provided by arrays?No. we could not implement the HashTable with arrray. But can be possible with other algorithm E.g. a Red-Black tree This offers O(logN) access time. But Hash Table is expected to have O(1) access time (at best case – no collisions). This can be achieved only via an array which offers the possibility of random access in constant time.Must have a comparable performance (less than O(N)) with an array. A treemap has O(logN) worst access time for all operations 

The purpose of this assignment is to research and select a technology solution t

The purpose of this assignment is to research and select a technology solution to address a business problem and determine the ethical implications of adopting the selected technology.
Business organizations must thoroughly evaluate how they can get the most value from the technology they elect to employ in order to maintain competitive advantage and meet strategic goals.
For this assignment, imagine yourself in the role of the executive vice-president of product and innovation strategy at the business where you are currently employed or have interest in working. Your organization has decided to invest in one technological innovation, that if implemented could have a positive impact (e.g., provide more efficient customer service, increase product margins, penetrate new markets) on the business.
Your job is to identify a business issue/problem and evaluate and select a technology innovation that will address the issue or problem. You must be able to identify and discuss the measurable organizational value of the technology innovation.
As a final assignment deliverable, you will present a 750-1,000 word proposal outlining your strategic management plan for implementing the technology innovation. The technological innovation you select for this assignment will be used as the foundation for the applied course project and remaining course assignments. A minimum of five references is required.
Complete the steps below.
Identify a business problem that, if addressed with a new, innovative technology or innovative use of an existing technology, could have a positive impact (e.g., provide more efficient customer service, increase product margins, penetrate new markets) on the business.
Research potential information technology solutions to the problem. To find new, innovative technology solutions, search crowdfunding websites and other technology forums as part of the research process.
Based upon your research, select a technological innovation or innovative use for existing technology. Explain how it could be implemented to address the issue/problem you have identified. Include specific discussion of how it could be applied within your business and address the specific stakeholders that would be impacted.
Analyze and summarize the impact adoption of the technology would have on your business in terms of measurable organizational value (MOV).
Consider the five-component framework and discuss how adoption of the selected technological innovation will impact each of the five components of the business.
Identify and discuss specific ethical implications that could result from the implementation of the selected technology. Explain how you would address the ethical implications from a Christian worldview perspective.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. A link to the LopesWrite technical support articles is located in Class Resources if you need assistance.

During this term we talked a lot about technology, looked at some examples, had some practice, and examined a lot in the way of securing networks.
Are there any tips we could walk away with, e.g., what do you believe is necessary for good cyber security defense, what guidelines would you recommend in implementing the different kinds of technology, and what about people, they seem to be our weakest link, so what can we do?

Resources: Pastas R Us, Inc. Database & Microsoft Excel®, Wk 1: Descriptive Statistics Analysis Assignment 
Purpose 
This assignment is intended to help you learn how to apply statistical methods when analyzing operational data, evaluating the performance of current marketing strategies, and recommending actionable business decisions. This is an opportunity to build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills within the context of data analysis and interpretation. You’ll gain a first-hand understanding of how data analytics supports decision-making and adds value to an organization.
Scenario: 
Pastas R Us, Inc. is a fast-casual restaurant chain specializing in noodle-based dishes, soups, and salads. Since its inception, the business development team has favored opening new restaurants in areas (within a 3-mile radius) that satisfy the following demographic conditions:
Median age between 25 – 45 years old
Household median income above national average
At least 15% college educated adult population
Last year, the marketing department rolled out a Loyalty Card strategy to increase sales. Under this program, customers present their Loyalty Card when paying for their orders and receive some free food after making 10 purchases.
The company has collected data from its 74 restaurants to track important variables such as average sales per customer, year-on-year sales growth, sales per sq. ft., Loyalty Card usage as a percentage of sales, and others. A key metric of financial performance in the restaurant industry is annual sales per sq. ft. For example, if a 1200 sq. ft. restaurant recorded $2 million in sales last year, then it sold $1,667 per sq. ft.
Executive management wants to know whether the current expansion criteria can be improved. They want to evaluate the effectiveness of the Loyalty Card marketing strategy and identify feasible, actionable opportunities for improvement. As a member of the analytics department, you’ve been assigned the responsibility of conducting a thorough statistical analysis of the company’s available database to answer executive management’s questions.
Report: 
Write a 750-word statistical report that includes the following sections:
Section 1: Scope and descriptive statistics
Section 2: Analysis
Section 3: Recommendations and Implementation
Section 1 – Scope and descriptive statistics
State the report’s objective.
Discuss the nature of the current database. What variables were analyzed?
Summarize your descriptive statistics findings from Excel. Use a table and insert appropriate graphs.
Section 2 – Analysis 
Using Excel, create scatter plots and display the regression equations for the following pairs of variables:
“BachDeg%” versus “Sales/SqFt”
“MedIncome” versus “Sales/SqFt”
“MedAge” versus “Sales/SqFt”
“LoyaltyCard(%)” versus “SalesGrowth(%)”
In your report, include the scatter plots. For each scatter plot, designate the type of relationship observed (increasing/positive, decreasing/negative, or no relationship) and determine what you can conclude from these relationships.
Section 3: Recommendations and implementation
Based on your findings above, assess which expansion criteria seem to be more effective. Could any expansion criterion be changed or eliminated? If so, which one and why?
Based on your findings above, does it appear as if the Loyalty Card is positively correlated with sales growth? Would you recommend changing this marketing strategy?
Based on your previous findings, recommend marketing positioning that targets a specific demographic. (Hint: Are younger people patronizing the restaurants more than older people?)
Indicate what information should be collected to track and evaluate the effectiveness of your recommendations. How can this data be collected? (Hint: Would you use survey/samples or census?)
Cite references to support your assignment.
Format your citations according to APA guidelines.
