Now in its third edition, this best-selling book continues to bring you some of the best thinking on how to apply Oracle Database to produce scalable applications that perform well and deliver correct results. Tom Kyte and Darl Kuhn share a simple philosophy: ´´you can treat Oracle as a black box and just stick data into it, or you can understand how it works and exploit it as a powerful computing environment.´´ If you choose the latter, then you´ll find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly. This fully revised third edition covers the developments up to Oracle Database 12 c . Significant new content is included surrounding Oracle´s new cloud feature set, and especially the use of pluggable databases. Each feature is taught in a proof-by-example manner, not only discussing what it is, but also how it works, how to implement software using it, and the common pitfalls associated with it. Don´t treat Oracle Database as a black-box. Get this book. Get under the hood. Turbo-charge your career. Revised to cover Oracle Database 12 c Proof-by-example approach: Let the evidence be your guide Dives deeply into Oracle Database´s most powerful features

During task composition, such as can be found in distributed query processing, workflow systems and AI planning, decisions have to be made by the system and possibly by users with respect to how a given problem should be solved. Although there is often more than one correct way of solving a given problem, these multiple solutions do not necessarily lead to the same result. Some researchers are addressing this problem by providing data provenance information. Others use expert advice encoded in a supporting knowledge-base. However, users do not usually trust complete automation during decision-making for certain domains with natural variation, like biology; they need a way to be able to control and/or intervene with the system´s reasoning to verify parts of the process. This book provides a thorough analysis of the problem and presents a data-centric methodology of measuring decision criticality and describe its potential use. We argue that agent technology is a natural fit for the design of distributed heterogeneous integration systems, particularly in bioinformatics, and we propose a multi-agent system design and architecture as the basis of our framework.

Ist Ihnen bewusst, dass im Durchschnitt 75 Web-Technologien - mal mehr, mal weniger - ganz legal bei einem einzigen Webseitenaufruf mitlesen? Bei dem vorliegenden Selbsttest durch den Autor Fabian Siegler, Marketing- und IT-Experte, konnten mehr als 185 Unternehmen von Herstellern dieser Webtechnologien erkannt werden. Dieses Buch führt Ihnen schonungslos Ihre Surfgewohnheiten vor Augen - samt dem immensen Paket von Privatdaten, mit denen Sie täglich bezahlen. Datenschutz und Privatsphäre gelten hierzulande als besonders vorzeigbar - es wird Zeit, das aufzudecken was niemand auszusprechen wagt: Der gläserne Mensch ist bereits Tatsache! Ob Cookies, Tags, Web-Bugs, Pixel, Fingerprinting und Web-Beacons - all jene Services laufen im Hintergrund eines Webseitenbesuches oftmals mit. Dieses Buch zeigt detailliert die Fakten, und deckt auf, wer, was, wann und wozu herstellt. Außerdem wirft der Autor und Marketingexperte für Echtzeit-Personalisierungen einen Blick über den Tellerrand: Welche Daten werden erhoben bei der Nutzung von Googles Übersetzungstool und wie war das noch gleich mit Flugsicherheit und vernetzter Kleidung? Datenschutz ist ein Thema, das uns auf Schritt und Tritt beschäftigen sollte. Denn immerhin haben 67 Prozent aller Smartphone-Nutzer eine aktive Standortfreigabe - und benutzen pro Woche durch schnittlich 1.500 mal ihr mobiles Telefon. Bei rund 214 Nutzungen täglich, sollte die Sicherheit demnach eine tragende Rolle spielen. Wer dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird zwangsläufig aufgeklärter durch die Welt gehen. Bis zum Jahre 2017 erwartet man bei Google, dass rund 37.000 GB pro Sekunde an Daten verarbeitet werden sollen. Jede Sekunde! Privatsphäre war immer wichtig. Doch jetzt geht es darum, mit dem nötigen Know-how dieser Technologie aufgeklärt zu begegnen.
This book sheds light on cross-industry and industry-specific trends in today´s digital economy. Prepared by a group of international researchers, experts and practitioners under the auspices of SAP´s Digital Thought Leadership & Enablement team within SAP´s Business Transformation Services (BTS) unit, the book furthermore presents relevant use cases in digital transformation and innovation. The book argues that breakthrough technologies have matured and hit scale together, enabling five defining trends: hyper-connectivity, supercomputing, cloud computing, a smarter world, and cyber security. It presents in detail how companies are now reimagining their products and services, business models and processes, showcasing how every business today is a digital business. Digitalization, defined as the process of moving to a digital business, is no longer a choice but an imperative for all businesses across all industries and regions. Taking a step toward becoming a digital enterprise is demanding and challenging. The dimensions of customer centricity, leadership and strategy, business models, including offerings (products and services), processes, structure and governance, people and skills, culture, and technology foundation can serve as orientation for digitalization. The articles in this book touch on all dimensions of this digital innovation and transformation framework and offer possible answers to some of the pressing questions that arise when practitioners seek to digitalize their business.
