Information systems are the backbone of many of today's computerized applications. Distributed databases and the infrastructure needed to support them have been well studied. However, this book is the first to address distributed database interoperability by examining the successes and failures, various approaches, infrastructures, and trends of the field.
A gap exists in the way that these systems have been investigated by real practitioners. This gap is more pronounced than usual, partly because of the way businesses operate, the systems they have, and the difficulties created by systems' autonomy and heterogeneity. Telecommunications firms, for example, must deal with an increased demand for automation while at the same time continuing to function at their current level. While academics are focusing on investigating differences between distributed databases, federated databases, heterogeneous databases, and, more generally, among loosely connected and tightly coupled systems, those who have to deal with real problems right away know that the only relevant research is the one that will ensure that their system works to produce reasonably correct results.
Interconnecting Heterogeneous Information Systems covers the underlying principles and infrastructures needed to realize truly global information systems. The book discusses technologies related to middleware, the Web, workflows, transactions, and data warehousing. It also overviews architectures with a discussion of critical issues. The book gives an overview of systems that can be viewed as learning platforms. While these systems do not translate to successful commercial realities, they push the envelope in terms of research. Successful commercial systems have benefited from the experiments conducted in these prototypes. The book includes two case studies based on the authors' own work.
Interconnecting Heterogeneous Information Systems is suitable as a textbook for a graduate-level course on Interconnecting Heterogeneous Information Systems, as well as a secondary text for a graduate-level course on database or information systems, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.

  • No Profit e Leadership: La specificità della Leadership nel settore No Profit
    • Cristina Cirio (Author)

    Questo lavoro prende avvio dalla definizione di “:terzo settore”:, riservando una particolare attenzione al no profit in Italia per la specificità: nel confronto con gli altri Paesi. Vengono presentate in seguito le diverse prospettive e i vari modelli di Leadership che si sono susseguiti dal Novecento ad oggi. Nel capitolo finale si considerano invece alcuni recenti studi internazionali che hanno approfondito il tema della leadership e i suoi risvolti applicativi nel settore no profit (Egri, Herman, 2000: Morris, Coombes, Schindehutte Allen, 2007: Ruvio, Rosenblatt, Hertz-Lazarowitz, 2010). Si evidenzia quindi come la leadership sia rilevante nelle dinamiche lavorative del settore no profit poiché: mette in luce le competenze che il leader deve avere in base al contesto lavorativo in cui si trova ad operare, i vari stili di leadership da lui utilizzati e la centralità: dell’:elemento relazionale tra leader e follower.

    • White Eagle (Author)

    Have you ever wondered... How humankind began on Mother Earth? Were there really an Adam and Eve? Did Atlantis and Lemuria really exist? Are there inhabited worlds other than Earth and if there are, what it would be like to visit them? Why the Creator / God allows atrocities to continue on Mother Earth? This continuation of the true and real Spiritual Odyssey of White Eagle, a Native American SpiritWalker (Poh-ti-ka-wah), explores and explains these questions that have been asked by countless numbers of people throughout the ages. Join him in his out-of-body journeys back in time with the Creator, whom he affectionately calls Great Pop, and through his words and illustrations see what he was shown in answer to these questions. Share in the experience of an unfolding time line of developments that explain how humankind came to be on Mother Earth. Find out what happens when White Eagle 'gets caught' in another world and how his life journey on Mother Earth is paralleled by the adventure! This third volume brings the reader to the time of the Great Flood and brings enlightenment to the issues of why the Creator / God has allowed certain conditions and behaviors to continue.
