Service Orchestration as Organization

Service Orchestration as Organization Image
Service orchestration techniques combine the benefits of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM) to compose and coordinate distributed software services. On the other hand, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is gaining popularity as a software delivery model through cloud platforms due to the many benefits to software vendors, as well as their customers. Multi-tenancy, which refers to the sharing of a single application instance across multiple customers or user groups (called tenants), is an essential characteristic of the SaaS model. Written in an easy to follow style with discussions supported by real-world examples, Service Orchestration as Organization introduces a novel approach with associated language, framework, a...

Software and System Development Using Virtual Platforms

Full-System Simulation with Wind River Simics
Software and System Development Using Virtual Platforms Image
Virtual platforms are finding widespread use in both pre- and post-silicon computer software and system development. They reduce time to market, improve system quality, make development more efficient, and enable truly concurrent hardware/software design and bring-up. Virtual platforms increase productivity with unparalleled inspection, configuration, and injection capabilities. In combination with other types of simulators, they provide full-system simulations where computer systems can be tested together with the environment in which they operate. This book is not only about what simulation is and why it is important, it will also cover the methods of building and using simulators for computer-based systems. Inside you'll find a comprehensive book ...

Studying and Designing Technology for Domestic Life

Lessons from Home
Studying and Designing Technology for Domestic Life Image
Conducting research and technology design for domestic life is by no means easy. Methods commonly used in the field of Human-Computer Interaction in settings like the workplace may not easily translate to the richness and complexity of domestic life. This book documents new ways in which researchers are studying domestic life, as well as designing and evaluating technology in the home. Each chapter is a candid discussion about methods that were successfully used for research studies with a focus on the challenges that the researchers faced and the best practices they learned. * Discover new research methods for exploring family life and evaluating and designing domestic technology.* Learn about the challenges in designing for and studying domestic...

There's Not an App for That

Mobile User Experience Design for Life
There's Not an App for That Image
There's Not an App for That will make your work stand out from the crowd. It walks you through mobile experiences, and teaches you to evaluate current UX approaches, enabling you to think outside of the screen and beyond the conventional. You'll review diverse aspects of mobile UX: the screens, the experience, how apps are used, and why they're used. You'll find special sections on "challenging your approach", as well as a series of questions you can use to critique and evaluate your own designs. Whether the authors are discussing real-world products in conjunction with suggested improvements, showcasing how existing technologies can be put together in unconventional ways, or even evaluating "far out" mobile experiences of the fut...

Time and Relational Theory

Temporal Databases in the Relational Model and SQL
Time and Relational Theory Image
Time and Relational Theory provides an in-depth description of temporal database systems, which provide special facilities for storing, querying, and updating historical and future data. Traditionally, database management systems provide little or no special support for temporal data at all. This situation is changing because: * Cheap storage enables retention of large volumes of historical data in data warehouses* Users are now faced with temporal data problems, and need solutions * Temporal features have recently been incorporated into the SQL standard, and vendors have begun to add temporal support to their DBMS products Based on the groundbreaking text Temporal Data & the Relational Model (Morgan Kaufmann, 2002) and new research led by the au...

Mobile Networks Architecture

Mobile Networks Architecture Image
This book explains the evolutions of architecture for mobiles andsummarizes the different technologies: 2G: the GSM (Global System for Mobile) network, the GPRS(General Packet Radio Service) network and the EDGE (Enhanced Datafor Global Evolution) evolution; 3G: the UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System)network and the HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) evolutions: HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access), HSPA+; 4G: the EPS (Evolved Packet System) network. The telephone service and data transmission are the two mainservices provided by these networks. The evolutions arefundamentally dictated by the increase in the rate of datatransmission across the radio interface between the network ...
