E-Governance is getting momentous in India. Over the years, e-Governance has played a major part in every sphere of the economy. In this paper, we have proposed E-MODI (E-governance model for open distributed infrastructure) a centralized e-Governance system for government of India, the implementation of this system is technically based on open distributed infrastructure which comprises of various government bodies in one single centralized unit. Our proposed model identifies three different patterns of cloud computing which are DGC, SGC and CGC. In addition, readiness assessment of the services needs to migrate into cloud. In this paper, we propose energy efficient VM allocation algorithm to achieve higher energy efficiency in large scale cloud data centers when system on optimum mode. Our objectives have been explained in details and experiments were designed to demonstrate the robustness of the multi-layered security which is an integration of High secure lightweight block cipher CSL along with Ultra powerful BLAKE3 hashing function in order to maintain information security triad.

The exponential growth of big data demands an efficient knowledge discovery. The electronic medical records of patients on medical data Clouds contain implicit medical information. Although the periodic health examination (PHE) reports describing a set of screening tests for healthy individuals performed periodically, common individuals require the assistance of an expert to interpret the results for a medical opinion. This research study proposes a metaphoric design of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for PHE reports of patients. The outcomes of this study glimpses useful findings for the common people in the self-interpretation of their medical reports. Besides, among a variety of solutions, the study uses the metaphoric representation to convert the numerical data and medical terminology to familiar graphic representations from real life. The study identifies the detailed requirements to propose a conceptual architecture for metaphoric EMR reports. The future work will result in a prototype design, evaluation, and refinement of metaphors based on stakeholders' feedback.

Liver cancer is one the most common forms of cancer. As per statistics in 2018 published by World Health Organization, a quarter of all cancer cases are caused by infections, particularly prevalent in developing countries, including hepatitis B, which is linked to liver cancer. The mortality rate is higher in liver cancer as compared to other types of cancer. Quick and reliable diagnosis tools are of paramount importance for detecting and treating liver cancer in early stage, thus improving the likely course of a medical condition of patient. We have developed a cloud-based solution for liver tumour Segmentation, Classification and Detection in CT images based on GoogleNet architecture of Convolutional Neural Network. Experiment is carried out with training and test sets derived from TCIA repository. The results yield 96.7% accuracy for classification of tumour cells. GoogleNet architecture is used for implementation. The GoogleNet has 70,000 images in diagnosis of malignant tumor in liver cancer, providing a rich database for testing. Our algorithm has been deployed in Azure cloud.

Resource Description Framework (RDF) inherently supports data mergers from various resources into a single federated graph that can become very large even for an application of modest size. This results in severe performance degradation in the execution of RDF queries. As every RDF query essentially traverses a graph to find the output of the Query, an efficient path traversal reduces the execution time of RDF queries. Hence, query path optimization is required to reduce the execution time as well as the cost of a query. Query path optimization is an NP-hard problem that cannot be solved in polynomial time. Genetic algorithms have proven to be very useful in optimization problems. We propose a hybrid genetic algorithm for query path optimization. The proposed algorithm selects an initial population using iterative improvement thus reducing the initial solution space for the genetic algorithm. The proposed algorithm makes significant improvements in the overall performance. We show that the overall number of joins for complex queries is reduced considerably, resulting in reduced cost.

Fog computing and Edge computing are few of the latest technologies which are offered as solution to challenges faced in Cloud Computing. Instead of offloading of all the tasks to centralized cloud servers, some of the tasks can be scheduled at intermediate Fog servers or Edge devices. Though this solves most of the problems faced in cloud but also encounter other traditional problems due to resource-related constraints like load balancing, scheduling, etc. In order to address task scheduling and load balancing in Cloud-fog-edge collaboration among servers, we have proposed an improved version of min-min algorithm for workflow scheduling which considers cost, makespan, energy and load balancing in heterogeneous environment. This algorithm is implemented and tested in different offloading scenarios- Cloud only, Fog only, Cloud-fog and Cloud-Fog-Edge collaboration. This approach performed better and the result gives minimum makespan, less energy consumption along with load balancing and marginally less cost when compared to min-min and ELBMM algorithms

Cloud datacenters consume enormous energy and generate heat, which affects the environment. Hence, there must be proper management of resources in the datacenter for optimum usage of energy. Virtualization enabled computing improves the performance of the datacenters in terms of these parameters. Therefore, Virtual Machines (VMs) management is a required activity in the datacenter, which selects the VMs from the overloaded host for migration, VM migration from the underutilized host, and VM placement in the suitable host. In this paper, a method (SMA-LinR) has been developed using the Simple Moving Average (SMA) integrated with Linear Regression (LinR), which predicts the CPU utilization and determines the overloading of the host. Further, this predicted value is used to place the VMs in the appropriate PM. The main aim of this research is to reduce energy consumption (EC) and service level agreement violations (SLAV). Extensive simulations have been performed on real workload data, and simulation results indicate that SMA-LinR provides better EC and service quality improvements.

Access control has become the most necessary requirement to limit unauthorized and privileged access to information systems in cloud computing. Access control models counter the additional security challenges like rules, domain names, job allocation, multi hosting and separation of tasks. This paper classifies the conventional and modern access control models which has been utilized to restrain these access flaws by employing a variety of practices and methodologies. It examine the frequent security threats to information confidentiality, integrity, data accessibility and their approach used for cloud solutions. This paper proposed a priority based task scheduling access control (PbTAC) model to secure and scheduled access of resources & services rendered to cloud user. PbTAC model will ensure the job allocation, tasks scheduling and security of information through its rule policies during transmission between parties. It also help in reducing system overhead by minimize the computation and less storage cost.

Resource allocation and scheduling algorithms are the two essential factors that determine the satisfaction of cloud users. The major cloud resources involved here are servers, storage, network, databases, software and so on based on requirements of customers. In the competitive scenario, each service provider tries to use factors like optimal configuration of resources, pricing, Quality of Service (QoS) parameters and Service Level Agreement (SLA) in order to benefit cloud users and service providers. Since, many researchers have proposed different scheduling algorithms and resource allocation strategies, it becomes a cumbersome task to conclude which ones really benefit customers and service providers. Hence, this paper analyses and presents the most relevant considerations that would help the cloud researchers in achieving their goals in terms of mapping of tasks to cloud resources.

DevOps development strategy is based on lean and agile principles and developed to ensure faster delivery. It ensures the collaboration of all stakeholders in the software development process and incorporates user’s feedback in a faster manner. This strategy is developed to guarantee customer satisfaction, increased business value, reduced time for bagging the feedback and adjusting the deliverables. They identified a requirement of prioritizing security in DevOps and started conferring about security to be embedded in DevOps. This introduced a mission-critical issue in many organizations as it requires breaking down of the barriers of operations and security team and review of many security policies in place. The challenge is to find the best way in DevOps can still perform Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery after implanting security in a DevOps environment. This paper introduces a complete migration framework from DevOps to DevSecOps.This paper also identifies the attributes on which the migration framework can be evaluated.

Enterprises are adopting digital transformation with an exponential rate to drive growth through new business models and the use of digital technologies. Digital transformation is a business imperative rather than technology imperative. Hence, customer experience during and post-transformation is key to the success of the digital transformation. The present paper proposes an Integrated Predictive Experience Management Framework (IPEMF) for improving customer experience. IPEMF is- a structured and methodological business processes centric connected experience framework with the customer at the centre. The uniqueness of IPEMF is that it seamlessly integrates business processes, technology, organisation, and customer behaviour. It is agnostic of the business vertical or the geography. The framework puts forth an approach to predict the impact on customer experience proactively and provides a feedback loop to help continuously improve the experience. IPEMF helps enterprises build intuitive, trusted relationships and hyper-personalised customer experience through the customer journey.
