19th International Conference, BPMDS 2018, 23rd International Conference, EMMSAD 2018, Held at CAiSE 2018, Tallinn, Estonia, June 11-12, 2018, Proceedings
Author: Jens Gulden
Category: Business & Economics
This book constitutes the proceedings of two events held at the CAiSE conference and relating to the areas of enterprise, business process and information systems modeling: The 19th International Conference on Business Process Modeling, Development and Support, BPMDS 2018, and the 23rd International Conference on Evaluation and Modeling Methods for Systems Analysis and Development, EMMSAD 2018. The conferences took place in Tallinn, Estonia, in June 2018. The 13 papers accepted for BPMDS were carefully reviewed and selected from 29 submissions; for EMMSAD 6 papers out of 13 submissions were accepted for publication. For BPMDS 2018, the papers were organized in topical sections as follows: context-awareness in business processes; automatic analysis of business processes; advanced approaches for business process modeling; evaluation of business process modeling techniques; an experience report on modeling collaborative processes. For EMMSAD 2018, the six related papers are listed without further sections.
Understand the language and vocabulary of Data Architecture. The Data Architecture field is rife with terms that have become “fashionable”. Some of the terms began with very specific, specialized, meanings – but as their use spread, they lost the precision of their technical definitions and become, well, “buzzwords”. A buzzword is “a word or expression from a particular subject area that has become fashionable because it has been used a lot”. Compliance is “the obeying of an accepted principle or instruction that states the way things are or should be done.” The assignment is to take buzzwords and follow rules to use them correctly. We cut through the hype to arrive at buzzword compliance – the state where you fully understand the words that in fact have real meaning in the data architecture industry. This book will rationalize the various ways all these terms are defined. Of necessity, the book must address all aspects of describing an enterprise and its data management technologies. This includes a wide range of subjects, from entity/relationship modeling, through the semantic web, to database issues like relational and “beyond relational” (“NoSQL”) approaches. In each case, the definitions for the subject are meant to be detailed enough to make it possible to understand basic principles—while recognizing that a full understanding will require consulting the sources where they are more completely described. The book’s Glossary contains a catalogue of definitions and its Bibliography contains a comprehensive set of references.

Effective data modeling, performance tuning and data visualization techniques in Neo4j
Author: Jerome Baton
Publisher: Packt Publishing Ltd
Run blazingly fast queries on complex graph datasets with the power of the Neo4j graph database About This Book Get acquainted with graph database systems and apply them in real-world use cases Use Cypher query language, APOC and other Neo4j extensions to derive meaningful analysis from complex data sets. A practical guide filled with ready to use examples on querying, graph processing and visualizing information to build smarter spatial applications. Who This Book Is For This book is for developers who want an alternative way to store and process data within their applications. No previous graph database experience is required; however, some basic database knowledge will help you understand the concepts more easily. What You Will Learn Understand the science of graph theory, databases and its advantages over traditional databases. Install Neo4j, model data and learn the most common practices of traversing data Learn the Cypher query language and tailor-made procedures to analyze and derive meaningful representations of data Improve graph techniques with the help of precise procedures in the APOC library Use Neo4j advanced extensions and plugins for performance optimization. Understand how Neo4j's new security features and clustering architecture are used for large scale deployments. In Detail Neo4j is a graph database that allows traversing huge amounts of data with ease. This book aims at quickly getting you started with the popular graph database Neo4j. Starting with a brief introduction to graph theory, this book will show you the advantages of using graph databases along with data modeling techniques for graph databases. You'll gain practical hands-on experience with commonly used and lesser known features for updating graph store with Neo4j's Cypher query language. Furthermore, you'll also learn to create awesome procedures using APOC and extend Neo4j's functionality, enabling integration, algorithmic analysis, and other advanced spatial operation capabilities on data. Through the course of the book you will come across implementation examples on the latest updates in Neo4j, such as in-graph indexes, scaling, performance improvements, visualization, data refactoring techniques, security enhancements, and much more.

Wring more out of the data with a scientific approach to analysis Graph Analysis and Visualization brings graph theory out of the lab and into the real world. Using sophisticated methods and tools that span analysis functions, this guide shows you how to exploit graph and network analytic techniques to enable the discovery of new business insights and opportunities. Published in full color, the book describes the process of creating powerful visualizations using a rich and engaging set of examples from sports, finance, marketing, security, social media, and more. You will find practical guidance toward pattern identification and using various data sources, including Big Data, plus clear instruction on the use of software and programming. The companion website offers data sets, full code examples in Python, and links to all the tools covered in the book. Science has already reaped the benefit of network and graph theory, which has powered breakthroughs in physics, economics, genetics, and more. This book brings those proven techniques into the world of business, finance, strategy, and design, helping extract more information from data and better communicate the results to decision-makers. Study graphical examples of networks using clear and insightful visualizations Analyze specifically-curated, easy-to-use data sets from various industries Learn the software tools and programming languages that extract insights from data Code examples using the popular Python programming language There is a tremendous body of scientific work on network and graph theory, but very little of it directly applies to analyst functions outside of the core sciences – until now. Written for those seeking empirically based, systematic analysis methods and powerful tools that apply outside the lab, Graph Analysis and Visualization is a thorough, authoritative resource.
