Description & Coverage
Description:

Over the last five to six years, ontology has received increased attention within the information systems field. Ontology provides a basis for evaluating, analyzing, and engineering business analysis methods. It is that type of theology that has allowed many organizations utilizing ontology to become more competitive within today's global environment. Business Systems Analysis with Ontologies examines, thoroughly, the area of ontologies. All aspects of ontologies are covered; analysis, evaluation, and engineering of business systems analysis methods. Readers are shown the world of ontologies through a number of research methods. For example, survey methodologies, case studies, experimental methodologies, analytical modeling, and field studies are all used within this book to help the reader understand the usefulness of ontologies. For nearly a decade the IS community has published vast amounts of publications about ontologies in the area of Business Systems Analysis. This book acts as a comprehensive summation of this increasingly popular research area.
