A Survey Based Study on Fog Computing Awareness

By Zainab Javed Waqas Mahmood

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2021

In this day and age, the rise in technological advancements has the potential to improve and transform our lives every day. The rapid technology innovation can have a great impact on our business operations. Currently, Cloud computing services are popular and offer a wide range of opportunities for their customers. This paper presents a survey on a more recent computing architecture paradigm known as Fog Computing. Fog networking is a beneficial solution that offers the greater facility of data storage, enhanced computing, and networking resources. This new concept of fog complements cloud solution by facilitating its customers with better security, real-time analysis improved efficiency. To get a clear picture and understanding of how fog computing functions, we have performed an extensive literature review. We also presented a comparative study of fog computing with cloud and grid computing architectures. In this study, we have conducted a survey that led us to the conclusion that fog computing solution is still not applicable and implemented in most of the IoT industries due to the lack of awareness and the high architecture’s cost. Results of the study also indicate that optimized data storage and security are a few of the factors that can motivate organizations to implement the Fog computing architecture. Furthermore, the challenges related to fog computing solution are reviewed for progressive developments in the future.

A Detailed Examination of the Enterprise Architecture Frameworks Being Implemented in Pakistan

By Hareem Qazi Zainab Javed Sameen Majid Waqas Mahmood

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Sep. 2019

Managing the underlying structure of an enterprise is a daunting task. The business management and IT management alike have to deal with intricate layers of complexity that lies beneath the surface of the day-to-day operations of an enterprise. Without a proper Enterprise Architecture Framework, any organization regardless of size and magnitude of operations is bound to struggle in managing their business strategies. However, choosing a suitable Enterprise Architecture Framework is in itself a pretty hard endeavor that requires a deep dive into the terrifying maze of available Enterprise Architecture Frameworks and their respective characteristics. In this study, we compare the major Enterprise Architectu¬re Frameworks that are currently prevalent in Pakistan. Through a well-crafted questionnaire we conducted a survey and assessed what Enterprise Architecture Frameworks most of the industries in Pakistan are using and the enterprise’s level of satisfaction with the achieved results. By focusing on the trends of Enterprise Architecture Framework implementation in Pakistan we try to offer a unique perspective on the comparative studies of Enterprise Architecture Framework that are usually done on general basis.
