Description & Coverage
Description:

Modeling is used across a number of tasks in connection to information systems, but it is rare to see and easily compare all the uses of diagrammatical models as knowledge representation in one place, highlighting both commonalities and differences between different kinds of modeling.

Innovations in Information Systems Modeling: Methods and Best Practices provides up-to-date coverage of central topics in information systems modeling and architectures by leading researchers in the field. With chapters presented by top researchers from countries around the globe, this book provides a truly international perspective on the latest developments in information systems modeling, methods, and best practices.

Coverage:

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

  • Conceptual data models
  • Conceptual information modeling
  • Data modeling and functional modeling
  • Enriched conceptualization of subtyping
  • Enterprise modeling approach
  • Information systems modeling
  • Integrated requirement and solution modeling
  • Methodologies for active knowledge modeling
  • ORM conceptual schema language
  • Service-Oriented Architecture
Reviews and Testimonials

Editor/Author Biographies
Terry Halpin, (BSc, DipEd, BA, MLitStud, PhD) is a distinguished professor at Neumont University. His industry experience includes several years in data modeling technology at Asymetrix Corporation, InfoModelers Inc., Visio Corporation, and Microsoft Corporation. His doctoral thesis formalized object-role modeling (ORM/NIAM), and his current research focuses on conceptual modeling and conceptual query technology. He has authored over 150 technical publications and six books, including Information Modeling and Relational Databases and has co-edited four books on information systems modeling research. He is a member of IFIP WG 8.1 (Information Systems), an editor or reviewer for several academic journals, a regular columnist for the Business Rules Journal, and a recipient of the DAMA International Achievement Award for Education (2002) and the IFIP Outstanding Service Award (2006).
John Krogstie has a PhD (1995) and an MSc (1991) in information systems, both from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). He is a professor in information systems at IDI, NTNU, (Trondheim, Norway). He is also a senior advisor at SINTEF. He was employed as a manager in Accenture (1991-2000). John Krogstie is the Norwegian Representative for IFIP TC8 and Vice-Chair of IFIP WG 8.1 on information systems design and evaluation, where he is the initiator and leader of the task group for Mobile Information Systems. He has published around 80 refereed papers in journals, books, and archival proceedings since 1991.
Erik Proper works as a principal consultant at Capgemini and as a part-time professor at Radboud University Nijmegen. In the past he has worked for the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Distributed Systems Technology Centre, Origin, ID Research, and Ordina. Erik leads the Tools for Enterprise Engineering group at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences at Nijmegen. His research interests lie within the field of enterprise engineering and architecting.
