The purpose of this book is to share my understanding of service-oriented architecture. SOA is an architectural pattern in software in which application components provide services to other components.
This book has three parts. The first part explains fundamental SOA principles. The second part shows how we can synergize SOA with clouds, business intelligence, mobility, Big Data, and other applications. Finally, I discuss the future of SOA.
I wrote this book primarily to satisfy my curiosity about emerging technologies and established architectural principles and, more broadly, marketplace success or failure. I've spent my working life as a consultant where I have seen at the grassroots level the best and the worst of more than a dozen brand-name corporations.
I've worked for JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, American Express, Honeywell, Boeing, Intel, and other leading companies as an architect, analyst, integrator, and as a developer with forty years of information technologies ...
HTML5 is the latest version of the web technology, which brings it right up-to-date with powerful features such as audio and video without using a plug-in, and a canvas area with professional tools for creating paths, lines, curves, shapes, fills, gradients, patterns, text and more.
It also provides accurate geolocation, background web workers, offline web applications, microdata, a local storage engine and many other improvements to standard HTML such as dozens of new form tags and attributes.
If you are a professional or amateur web developer you need these tools in your kit, and this book is the fastest and easiest way there is to learn them.
Reasons you will learn all you need from this course:
?Each Lecture begins by listing the three key skills you will learn.
?A summary at the end of each lecture reminds you what you have learned.
?Useful, fully-tested examples illustrate every tag, attribute and function.
?Each lecture features several notes providing extra, handy ...
This open access book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students, such as calculus, matrices and probability. Concepts and algorithms are explained through detailed diagrams and calculations.
Elements of Robotics presents an overview of different types of robots and the components used to build robots, but focuses on robotic algorithms: simple algorithms like odometry and feedback control, as well as algorithms for advanced topics like localization, mapping, image processing, machine learning and swarm robotics. These algorithms are demonstrated in simplified contexts that enable detailed computations to be performed and feasible activities to be posed. Students who study these simplified demonstrations will be well prepared for ...
This open access book was prepared as a Final Publication of the COST Action IC1303 "Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE)". The concept of Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) refers to the area of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) that is more related with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Effective ELE solutions require appropriate ICT algorithms, architectures, platforms, and systems, having in view the advance of science and technology in this area and the development of new and innovative solutions that can provide improvements in the quality of life for people in their homes and can reduce the financial burden on the budgets of the healthcare providers.
The aim of this book is to become a state-of-the-art reference, discussing progress made, as well as prompting future directions on theories, practices, standards, and strategies related to the ELE area. The book contains 12 chapters and can serve as a valuable reference for ...

This open access book offers comprehensive coverage on Ordered Fuzzy Numbers, providing readers with both the basic information and the necessary expertise to use them in a variety of real-world applications. The respective chapters, written by leading researchers, discuss the main techniques and applications, together with the advantages and shortcomings of these tools in comparison to other fuzzy number representation models. Primarily intended for engineers and researchers in the field of fuzzy arithmetic, the book also offers a valuable source of basic information on fuzzy models and an easy-to-understand reference guide to their applications for advanced undergraduate students, operations researchers, modelers and managers alike.
Activities performed in organizations are coordinated via communication
between the people involved. The sentences used to communicate are naturally structured by subject, verb, and object. The subject describes the actor, the verb the action and the object what is affected by the action. Subject-oriented Business Process Management (S-BPM) as presented in this book is based on this simple structure which enables process-oriented thinking and process modeling.
S-BPM puts the subject of a process at the center of attention and thus
deals with business processes and their organizational environment from a new perspective, meeting organizational requirements in a much better way than traditional approaches. Subjects represent agents of an action in a process, which can be either technical or human (e.g. a thread in an IT system or a clerk). A process structures the actions of each subject and coordinates the required communication among the subjects. S-BPM provides a coherent ...
