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.

This volume explores the interpersonal, organizational, and technological enablers and barriers to information and intelligence sharing in multinational and multiagency military, humanitarian, and counterterrorism operations. To this end the contributions present case studies and other empirical research. UN and special operations headquarters are studied, along with multinational operations in Mali, Iraq, and Afghanistan by the UN and by U.S. Central Command. Perennial themes are the need for a holistic approach to information sharing-one that incorporates all the above enablers-and the importance of learning from experience, which should be the basis for operational planning. There is still considerable ground to be gained in enhancing the efficacy of information sharing in the context of defense and security, and the present book contributes to this goal.
SciFinder(r) is rapidly becoming a preferred means to access scientific information in industry and universities worldwide. It accesses databases which span the chemical, engineering, life, medical, and physical sciences, including five Chemical Abstract Service databases and the National Library of Medicine bibliographic database Medline(r). No other single information access tool has such breadth of coverage for scientific journal and patent documents. Information Retrieval: SciFinder(r), 2nd Edition is an essential guide explaining how to get the best out of SciFinder. It discusses the 50+ options in SciFinder(r) including topic, bibliographic, and chemical substance explore options, and post-processing options Analyze, Refine, and Categorize. The book: * Summarises the databases and explains how to take advantage of the unique search and analysis options * Explains selected algorithms behind the operation of SciFinder(r) and why it helps to understand them * Discusses why it is important, and how to apply scientific method to information retrieval * Describes how to search for chemical structures and chemical reactions This second edition of Information Retrieval: SciFinder(r) has been fully revised and updated to incorporate the latest functionality and content of SciFinder(r). Written by a scientist for scientists, this book will increase your research creativity and productivity and is an essential resource for anyone needing scientific information in academia or industry.
Information organization and dissemination is a key aspect of library and information science (LIS). It is taught in many Library Information Science university programs internationally. There are many books covering different areas of the subject separately, but there is dearth of books covering the whole gamut of the subject. This book covers the entire subject area and incorporates latest developments. Is an overview of the entire subject, covering all relevant areas Bullet points highlight key features in each chapter Written in accessible language, this book is aimed at a wide audience of LIS academics Professor Amitabha Chatterjee is a well-known name in the sphere of LIS education. He has taught the subject for over 40 years at bachelors degree level and over 35 years at masters degree level in different universities. He retired as Professor and Head of the Department of Library & Information Science, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India. Professor Chatterjee has edited six journals and has published seven books.
Information Reuse and Integration addresses the efficient extension and creation of knowledge through the exploitation of Kolmogorov complexity in the extraction and application of domain symmetry. Knowledge, which seems to be novel, can more often than not be recast as the image of a sequence of transformations, which yield symmetric knowledge. When the size of those transformations and/or the length of that sequence of transforms exceeds the size of the image, then that image is said to be novel or random. It may also be that the new knowledge is random in that no such sequence of transforms, which produces it exists, or is at least known. The nine chapters comprising this volume incorporate symmetry, reuse, and integration as overt operational procedures or as operations built into the formal representations of data and operators employed. Either way, the aforementioned theoretical underpinnings of information reuse and integration are supported.
