Janicom.com is an online store specializing in barebone PCs – an online store where you can choose from plenty of custom built PC systems and components, picking the ones that will match your requirements and the sum of money you have at your disposal best. Being a considerably cheaper alternative to readymade systems, barebone PCs give you the opportunity to assemble a quality computer for yourself without overpaying for the brand, under which this or that system is assembled.
The Catalog section at Janicom.com is split into three main groups, namely: Barebones, Desktop Computer Systems and Components. Barebone computers prevail here even though the choice of pre-built desktop computer systems is rather wide as well. The good thing is that Janicom.com doesn’t charge too much for the assembled systems, so if you are not sure you can choose all the right components for your custom built PC, you can always resort to readymade solutions.
Alternatively, if you want to build a computer system yourself, you can always visit the Barebones section where you are offered to choose a barebone computer matching your preferences best – and to equip is with components of your choice. Everything you have to do is specify the chosen components and the techies in Janicom.com will assemble your PC, back it up with a 1-year full warranty and ship it to you wherever you are.

The barebone PCs as well as pre-built computer systems offered by Janicom.com are grouped into subcategories depending on the manufacturer of the components (Intel or AMD) as well as depending on the type of processor/RAM. Separate components are grouped by type and, often, manufacturer. The grouping makes the process of navigating the site considerably easier for the customers.
Janicom.com also offers you a lot of useful information delivered in articles in Company section. Those articles are very likely to help you in the process of choosing components for your own custom built PC as they contain valuable advice on how to build a custom system depending on your needs, should it be office work, Internet surfing or gaming.

Traditionally, Specifying requirements, and Purchasing the specified product are two main consecutive stages while procuring most industrial systems. Based on study results adding a Cost Oriented Reevaluation (COR) stage, can boost significantly ROI; always of prime importance, particularly with present economy.
Generally, specification aims for simplest solutions which meet users “must have” requirements. Main UPS parameters are Output power (SIZE), Type (topology) and Battery Backup time. Size is dictated by consumers which will be protected. Back up time and the types of the systems depend on the particular application.
Three dominant UPS types are offered by manufacturers. The Off-Line type solves outages and short-term grid disturbances; Line-Interactive type solves also Undervoltage and Overvoltage disturbances, whereas the On-Line type provides the best solution to all grid related disturbances.
The simplest, Off Line UPS, is recommended for protecting home computer applications. Line Interactive systems are used for small networks, implemented in stores, restaurants, small offices. On-Line systems protect high power, installations, data centers, on line service providers, industry, and other critical applications.
In the process of checking the pros and cons of On-Line versus Line interactive UPS for a particular project, UPSonNet found that some On-Line systems were cheaper, compared to equivalent Line Interactive types. Deeper investigation, suggested that the assumption of constant Price to Power ratio should also be questioned.
This led to performing a study of UPS market prices, from small 350VA size systems up to 120kVA installations. The research was based on market prices, of main brands like APC, Powerware, Tripplite as well as smaller good standing companies, and filtering the results by a weighting factor representing supplier’s market share.
The mentioned dual stage procurement method, of preparing technical specification to meet needed requirements, followed by a purchasing stage based on the technical specification is justified, assuming positive price to performance behavior and linear behavior of price to output power ratio.
The study violates these assumptions. A better UPS may cost less, while significantly higher power may have a slight effect on price. Market prices are affected by numerous factors, such as, technological innovations, strength and preferences of individual producers, popularity of certain power levels or certain brands, and more. Therefore, no price logic is obeyed when individual systems, are concerned.
UPS Industry Price List, presented on UPSonNet’s website displays the final study results. The information enables to rise beyond the individual system and see both the forest and the trees. It allows achieving optimal solution by analyzing each specific case, in order to deduce the impact of size and topology on system cost.
Research results call for additional Cost Oriented Reevaluation Stage, before the specification is confirmed and forwarded to purchasing department. The COR stage should investigate alternate solutions, and modify UPS specification for getting superior technical performance and better economical outcome.
Guiding steps on UPSonNet’s site, direct users how to use UPS Price List to gain significant advantages. COR implementation enables to achieve such benefits as system upgrading, extending output power, increasing back up time, introducing redundancy, and more, while decreasing system cost sometimes by almost 40%.
In conclusion, UPS market price study contradicts assumed correlation between cost and performance. Thus, practice of specifying the simplest UPS to meet requirements doesn’t provide lowest cost. Implementing COR enables maximizing ROI.
UPSonNet is an information source about Power Protection, Power Availability, and Quality. The information addresses audience involved in Design, Manufacturing, and Distribution of Power Conversion equipment, as well as Users involved in applying Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and related equipment, in business environment, data centers, and other mission critical areas.

Looking forward, we foresee an increase in the rate of registrations in the run up to launch.”
With its recently announced partnership with ICED – owner of the Kwik Kopy, Kwik Kopy Business Center, Inkwell and Franklin brands – expected to augment these figures significantly, Earthtone seems set to shake up the online printing landscape when it launches in October.

UML2ClearQuest is a software product that has no analogues for IBM Rational ClearQuest. The UML2ClearQuest solution allows for creating and modifying the lifecycle of IBM Rational ClearQuest record types based on UML diagrams (up to version 2.1). The program is designed first of all for IBM Rational ClearQuest managers, responsible for designing schemas for their organizations.
The module has the following capabilities:
• Importing UML states from MS Visio and StarUML. Design business processes with the comfort of MS Visio,and StarUML and readily import the results to IBM Rational ClearQuest to a new or existing record type.
• Visualizing the import data. Before importing, the module shows the state diagram and checks it for compliancy with the IBM Rational ClearQuest state machine.
• Exporting state machines for record types from IBM Rational ClearQuest. Allows for exporting IBM Rational ClearQuest state machines to UML diagrams in MS Visio or StarUML format for modifying and viewing. A modified diagram can then be imported to the existing record type from which it was exported.
The program comes as two different modifications:
• As a separate Windows application that works under .NET
• As an IBM Rational Software Architect plugin. This modification allows for importing and exporting projects only from IBM Rational Software Architect. The demo version allows for exporting diagrams to IBM Rational ClearQuest only if it has no more than 3 states.
