Description & Coverage
Description:

In the current technological world, Web services play an integral role in service computing and social networking services. This is also the case in the traditional FREG (foods, resources, energy, and goods) services because almost all traditional services are replaced fully or partially by Web services.

Handbook of Research on Demand-Driven Web Services: Theory, Technologies, and Applications presents comprehensive and in-depth studies that reveal the cutting-edge theories, technologies, methodologies, and applications of demand-driven Web, mobile, and e-business services. This book provides critical perspectives for researchers and practitioners, lecturers and undergraduate/graduate students, and professionals in the fields of computing, business, service, management, and government, as well as a variety of readers from all the social strata.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud Services
  • E-Business Services
  • E-FREG Services
  • Emergent AI-Based Technologies
  • Fuzzy Logic Systems
  • Multi-Agent Systems Techniques
  • Neural Networks Systems
Reviews and Testimonials

Contributors largely in information and computer science, but also in a number of other disciplines, explore the theory of demand; various demands from governments, communities, organizations and individuals; and various demand-driven Web services. Among the topics are marketing theories to model business Web service procurement behavior, designing Web services for mobile monitoring and access to measurements, secure network solutions for enterprise cloud services, a demand-driven cloud-based business intelligence for healthcare decision making, and and Delta State University in Nigeria as a case study of electronic business in education.

He is a senior member of ACS, a member of the AIS and the IEEE.
John Yearwood is Professor and Dean of School of Science, Information Technology, and Engineering, University of Ballarat, Australia. His research spans areas of pattern recognition, argumentation, reasoning, decision support, Web services, and their applications. He has been chief investigator on a number of ARC projects in these areas. His work has involved the development of new algorithms and approaches to classification based on modern non-smooth optimization techniques, new frameworks for structured reasoning, and their application in decision support and knowledge modelling. Some important outcomes relate to the use of text categorization techniques for detecting drugs responsible for adverse reactions. He is currently an ARC research fellow working in the area of argumentation and narrative structures. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology. He has over 210 refereed journal and conference publications.
