Transaction-intensive, customer facing applications and the most critical high volume ERP and CRM applications are collecting and storing huge amount of data resulting in exponential increase in the size of database. ERP applications are based on layered architecture and complicated relational databases. An overloaded relational database reduces ERP performances and increase hardware and maintenance cost. Managing security and growth of databases size has become the prime concern of organisation to enhance performance and reduce cost. The article has taken a case study to highlight why data archiving is crucial for the enterprises running SAP solution in optimising business performance. The present article discusses the challenges faced by an organisation in managing the growing SAP data and how a data management strategy in place can help the organisation in enhancing the performance of the system.

The aim of this research is to explore the status of infant mortality at the state level, rate of change over the study period (1981–2011) and regional variation in infant mortality rate (IMR) and present a case as to how health status can be improved through targeting goals as in the case of IMR by the health planners and policymakers. The achievement of each of the 15 states on the basis of IMR is examined on the basis of divergence reduction. Sigma and beta absolute convergence measures used to determine the nature of change in the degree of regional inequality in IMR show positive results in achieving regional convergence. This confirms that the government policy and programmes to control and reduce IMR have been successful. IMR is frequently questioned as a measure of health status as infant mortality turns out to be the main focus of health policy; however, the entire population’s health possibly will be ignored in achieving the policy targets. However, the brighter side to it is that the entire gamut of health indicators can be targeted in a phased manner to achieve the overall improvement in the health status. © 2017, © 2017 Indian Institute of Health Management Research.

The communications sector is emerging with new technologies, wireless and wireline services. The industry's success expects a better perception of customer requirements and superior quality of service and models. Customer churn has a huge impact on companies and is the prime focus area for the companies to remain competitive and profitable. Hence, significant research had been undertaken by researchers worldwide to understand the dynamics of customer churn. This paper provides a review of around 75 recent journal articles (starting from year 2000) to identify the various churn factors and their complex relationships, in existing telecom churn literature. It gives detailed discussion of what factors were identified in various studies, the sample sizes used and the method used for the study by different researchers. The gaps identified in the previous studies have also been discussed. A model on churn factors, identified from the study is proposed to serve as a roadmap, to build upon exciting churn management techniques. ©2017 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

Purpose: This paper aims to study how a library can be best integrated into eLearning platform, thereby making it easier for both the instructors and students to search the library resources with ease. Further, it explores the perceived usefulness of library integration in the eLearning platform and ease of access of library resources and services through the integrated system by students. Design/methodology/approach: The study has adopted quantitative research design to garner the perceptions of students towards library integration system in eLearning and its perceived usefulness of integration. In total, 156 responses were collected from both first-year and second-year students of the institute. Collected data were analysed using descriptive statistics and ANOVA. Findings: The author argues that by integrating library in Moodle LMS, the library plays a more significant role in the eLearning environment, especially in facilitating access to electronic resources to the students. Research findings suggest that respondents had positive perceptions towards the library integration in eLearning. Practical implications: This paper offers technical strategies for integrating library in learning management system (LMS), thereby strengthening relation with faculties, increasing relevance with students and improving visibility of library. Originality/value: In the eLearning environment, this paper will be of immense value for the librarians who are looking for establishing their presence in LMS. © 2017, © Emerald Publishing Limited.

With the assumption that the returns are normally distributed with no fat tails,most of the existing studies have used ordinary least square (OLS) method to test the pricing ability of asset pricing models. These assumptions are not valid in numerous cases. Thus,to overcome such problem,the present study tests the pricing ability of Carhart (1997) four factor model using quantile regression which provides superior fitting of pricing factors than the traditional OLS model. The study uses daily data of Indian firms for period from December 1993 to March 2016. The results of the study reveal that the quantile regression model is having superior fitting across all percentile levels than OLS as it fails to fit these four factors across all percentile levels. © 2016,Econjournals.

Background: Ensuring health worker job satisfaction and motivation are important if health workers are to be retained and effectively deliver health services in many developing countries, whether they work in the public or private sector. The objectives of the paper are to identify important aspects of health worker satisfaction and motivation in two Indian states working in public and private sectors.Methods: Cross-sectional surveys of 1916 public and private sector health workers in Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, India, were conducted using a standardized instrument to identify health workers' satisfaction with key work factors related to motivation. Ratings were compared with how important health workers consider these factors.Results: There was high variability in the ratings for areas of satisfaction and motivation across the different practice settings, but there were also commonalities. Four groups of factors were identified, with those relating to job content and work environment viewed as the most important characteristics of the ideal job, and rated higher than a good income. In both states, public sector health workers rated "good employment benefits" as significantly more important than private sector workers, as well as a "superior who recognizes work". There were large differences in whether these factors were considered present on the job, particularly between public and private sector health workers in Uttar Pradesh, where the public sector fared consistently lower (P < 0.01). Discordance between what motivational factors health workers considered important and their perceptions of actual presence of these factors were also highest in Uttar Pradesh in the public sector, where all 17 items had greater discordance for public sector workers than for workers in the private sector (P < 0.001).Conclusion: There are common areas of health worker motivation that should be considered by managers and policy makers, particularly the importance of non-financial motivators such as working environment and skill development opportunities. But managers also need to focus on the importance of locally assessing conditions and managing incentives to ensure health workers are motivated in their work. © 2010 Peters et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

This article emphasizes the need for an alternative index which considers sustainability of human development and formulates an index based on strong sustainability. The strong sustainability notion underlines the need for sustaining natural capital resembling ecological footprints and is superior to a weak sustainability criterion since natural capital cannot be substitutable to a wider extent for fostering sustainable human development. The Ecological Footprint Biocapacity Index (EFBI) constructed is used in formulating Sustainable Human Development Index (SHDI) along with the other components of UNDP HDI. A comparative analysis has been made to justify the Sustainability Assessment Index as an appropriate index than other available indices. Statistics applied on the UNDP HDI and the Sustainable HDI shows significant difference between the two. The goal is to logically justify the need for a suitable index which can capture human development in terms of its sustainability. © 2013 Copyright Taylor & Francis.

In this paper, the author focuses on learner perceptions of the characteristics of learning technology as explanatory variables for acceptance behavior. The author presents an empirical study examining the effects of these perceptions on two outcomes: uptake of an e-learning technology and effectiveness of such technologies that results in the intention to continue to use. The effectiveness of e-learning programs are dependent on the fulfillment of the leaner expectations in terms of the suitability of the learning to the present task, applicability of the learning, and the right incentives and measures to encourage and motivate employees. © 2010, IGI Global.

PurposeFood gives us essential nutrients to lead a healthy lifestyle but lately it has been found that many food products have become hazardous due to contamination and lead to many diseases. The rampant use of pesticides and chemical-based fertilizers in agriculture has, increased the productivity but at the same time they have created an alarming situation for the environment. The demand of the hour is to therefore to encourage organic farming and offer a better choice to consumers as well as save the environment. The purpose of this paper is to explore and understand the factors affecting perception of consumers on organic food products in Indian context. Design/methodology/approachThe study used a structured survey of 150 respondents covering Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) of Ghaziabad, Noida and Faridabad (India). Exploratory research was used to know the variables from the literature that affect the perception of consumers regarding organic food. Descriptive research was used to understand the demographic profile of the organic food consumer’s. Conclusive research design was used to test the hypotheses based upon the motivating and inhibiting factor in the growth of organic food. FindingsThe data collected from the survey were analyzed using t-test, χ2 test, factor analysis and multiple linear regression tests. Results indicated that the intention to purchase organic products was impacted by the consumer’s belief on the safety and health aspect of the product, trust and certification, information and availability and lifestyle and are hence drivers of growth. And certain impeding factors were identified like doubt in the professed quality of organic food, lack of awareness and price parity. Social implicationsThere are enough evidences of fertile land being converted into wasteland because of use of agro- chemical-based fertilizers in farming. There are also enough incidents of polluted water (ground and surface) due to agrochemical-based farming. Heavy use of pesticides leads to adverse effect on the health of farmers also. There were many reports of farmers committing suicide because of debt due to heavy investment on pesticides and fertilizers. Organic farming is a win-win proposition for environment, farmers and consumer’s. Originality/valueThe study was an effort to understand awareness and perception of organic food consumers in urban India post-agriculture revolution. The result would help the organic food producing and marketing companies to understand the factors that influence the belief of consumers when they purchase organic food and henceforth they can formulate communication strategies and marketing policy based on consumer’s expectations. © 2016, © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
