Modern Information Systems
The development of modern information systems is a demanding task. New technologies and tools are designed, implemented and presented in the market on a daily bases. User needs change dramatically fast and the IT industry copes to reach the level of efficiency and adaptability for its systems in order to be competitive and up-to-date. Thus, the realization of modern information systems with great characteristics and functionalities implemented for specific areas of interest is a fact of our modern and demanding digital society and this is the main scope of this book. Therefore, this book aims to present a number of innovative and recently developed information systems. It is titled "Modern Information Systems" and includes 8 chapters. This book may assist researchers on studying the innovative functions of modern systems in various areas like health, telematics, knowledge management, etc. It can also assist young students in capturing the new research tendencies of the information systems' development.
Security Enhanced Applications for Information Systems
Every day, more users access services and electronically transmit information which is usually disseminated over insecure networks and processed by websites and databases, which lack proper security protection mechanisms and tools. This may have an impact on both the users’ trust as well as the reputation of the system’s stakeholders. Designing and implementing security enhanced systems is of vital importance. Therefore, this book aims to present a number of innovative security enhanced applications. It is titled “Security Enhanced Applications for Information Systems” and includes 11 chapters. This book is a quality guide for teaching purposes as well as for young researchers since it presents leading innovative contributions on security enhanced applications on various Information Systems. It involves cases based on the standalone, network and Cloud environments.
Innovative Information Systems Modelling Techniques
The rapid development of new Information Infrastructure combined with the increased user needs in specific areas of Information Technology (mostly related to Web applications) has created the need for designing new modeling techniques more innovative and targeted on specific areas of Information Systems in order to successfully model the rapidly changed environment, along with the newly introduced concepts and user requirements. Therefore, this book aims to introduce readers to a number of innovative Information modeling techniques. It is titled "Innovative Information Systems Modelling Techniques" and includes 9 chapters. The focus is on the exploration and coverage of the innovations of recently presented modeling techniques and their applicability on the Information Systems' modeling.
