Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation. This study indicates usability factors for future SDP systems and contributes to the exploratory framework represented by the six GT categories. The results of this study benefit Information Systems (IS) experts developing SDP based ICT systems and those interested in practical applications of GT. Martin Bergaus, Ph.D., teaches as an associate lecturer at the University of Applied Science and Technical University in Vienna. His current research interests focuses on a qualitative research using Grounded Theory in the field of Information Systems. He has professional experiences within the ICT and company start up.

Boron Nitride Nanotubes in Nanomedicine compiles, for the first time in a single volume, all the information needed by researchers interested in this promising type of smart nanoparticles and their applications in biomedicine. Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) represent an innovative and extremely intriguing class of nanomaterials. After introducing BNNTs and explaining their preparation and evaluation, the book shows how the physical, chemical, piezoelectric and biocompatibility properties of these nanotubes give rise to their potential uses in biomedicine. Evidence is offered (from both in vitro and in vivo investigations) for how BNNTs can be useful in biomedical and nanomedicine applications such as therapeutic applications, tissue regeneration, nanovectors for drug delivery, and intracellular nanotransducers. Covers a range of promising biomedical BNNT applications Provides great value not just to academics but also industry researchers in fields such as materials science, molecular biology, pharmacology, biomedical engineering, and biophysical sciences Offers evidence for how BNNTs can be useful in biomedical and nanomedicine applications such as therapy, tissue regeneration, nanovectors for drug delivery, and intracellular nanotransducers Incorporates, for the first time in a single volume, all the information needed by researchers interested in this promising type of smart nanoparticles and their applications in biomedicine
Is Application Development dependent on the successful delivery of a current project? How can we incorporate support to ensure safe and effective use of Application Development into the services that we provide? Have the types of risks that may impact Application Development been identified and analyzed? When was the Application Development start date? Do we all define Application Development in the same way? Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role? In EVERY company, organization and department. Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ´What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?´ This Self-Assessment empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Application Development investments work better. This Application Development All-Inclusive Self-Assessment enables You to be that person. All the tools you need to an in-depth Application Development Self-Assessment. Featuring 718 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Application Development improvements can be made. In using the questions you will be better able to: - diagnose Application Development projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices - implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals - integrate recent advances in Application Development and process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines Using a Self-Assessment tool known as the Application Development Scorecard, you will develop a clear picture of which Application Development areas need attention. Your purchase includes access details to the Application Development self-assessment dashboard download which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next. Your exclusive instant access details can be found in your book.
The aim of this textbook (previously titled SAS for Data Analytics ) is to teach the use of SAS for statistical analysis of data for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in statistics, data science, and disciplines involving analyzing data. The book begins with an introduction beyond the basics of SAS, illustrated with non-trivial, real-world, worked examples. It proceeds to SAS programming and applications, SAS graphics, statistical analysis of regression models, analysis of variance models, analysis of variance with random and mixed effects models, and then takes the discussion beyond regression and analysis of variance to conclude. Pedagogically, the authors introduce theory and methodological basis topic by topic, present a problem as an application, followed by a SAS analysis of the data provided and a discussion of results. The text focuses on applied statistical problems and methods. Key features include: end of chapter exercises, downloadable SAS code and data sets, and advanced material suitable for a second course in applied statistics with every method explained using SAS analysis to illustrate a real-world problem. New to this edition: - Covers SAS v9.2 and incorporates new commands - Uses SAS ODS (output delivery system) for reproduction of tables and graphics output - Presents new commands needed to produce ODS output - All chapters rewritten for clarity - New and updated examples throughout - All SAS outputs are new and updated, including graphics - More exercises and problems - Completely new chapter on analysis of nonlinear and generalized linear models - Completely new appendix Mervyn G. Marasinghe, PhD , is Associate Professor Emeritus of Statistics at Iowa State University, where he has taught courses in statistical methods and statistical computing. Kenneth J. Koehler, PhD , is University Professor of Statistics at Iowa State University, where he teaches courses in statistical methodology at both graduate and undergraduate levels and primarily uses SAS to supplement his teaching.

Providing specific treatment protocols that can be individualized to a particular patients condition after consideration of the entire clinical picture, this how-to guide focuses on a variety of challenging and controversial situations related to the treatment of patients with osteomyelitis of the foot and ankle. Covering everything from diagnostic and imaging techniques to medical and surgical management strategies, the image-heavy format of this text is of real value, providing a unique look into the treatment protocols discussed. The chapters are organized based on anatomic location of the wound and infection, allowing clinicians easy access to relevant treatment options. Some of the topics included cover: · How to diagnose osteomyelitis early in the course of disease without unnecessary tests or harmful biopsy procedures · How to avoid excessive cost and side effects associated with antibiotics for various clinical conditions that are better treated surgically · How to minimize the risk of recurring wounds and infection yet preserve optimal foot function after surgery · How to incorporate advanced techniques like flap surgery, minimally invasive procedures, or local delivery of antibiotics, using case examples that highlight alternative surgical approaches Carefully selected based on expertise, background, and clinical focus, the contributors are both thought leaders and clinicians who deal with foot and ankle osteomyelitis on a daily basis. As such, Osteomyelitis of the Foot and Ankle will be an invaluable resource for podiatric foot and ankle surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, general surgeons, vascular surgeons and the entire care team with practical guidelines to treat both chronic wounds with low grade bone infection and acute limb threatening infections.
