Evaluating IT Services Price Benchmarks under Uncertainty

Robert J. Kauffman, Ryan Sougstad
2010 2010 43rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
We find that IT services price transparency is valuable where there is uncertainty about the price drift of IT services.  ...  We provide managerial recommendations based on our model for IT service price benchmarks.  ...  First, we present a model of benchmark valuation and optimal timing under IT service price uncertainty.  ...

Corn production is scattered geographically over various continents, but most of it is grown in the United States.  ...  The benchmark price for the purposes of this study was the average price offered by the market over the contract lifetime, and as such, the efficient market hypothesis was successfully contested.  ...  At that moment, the market is deemed too high since it is running out of buyers and is therefore about to fall under its own weight.  ...

An Agent Trading on Behalf of V2G Drivers in a Day-ahead Price Market

Ibrahem A. Almansour, Enrico H. Gerding, Gary Wills
2017 Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems  
We developed an agent to trade on behalf of V2G users to maximize their profits in a day-ahead price market.  ...  Consumers nowadays can produce power and consume a portion of it locally, and then could offer the rest of the power to the grid.  ...  Moreover, to evaluate the performance of our solution, we compared it with that achieved by using a benchmark strategy algorithm.  ...
