Book Description :

The advent of the computer has facilitated an exponential growth in the tools and techniques for manipulating information. Much of the development has been ad-hoc, driven by general management practises of gaining productivity and efficiency through the greater use of computers. Little attention has been paid to the broader issues of coherence and co-ordination of the information increasingly used to drive modern organizations. This book addresses these broader issues. It starts from the perception that information systems and sources need to be designed within a framework, an architecture, which requires a detailed understanding of the roles of the information and the tools to manipulate it, within the organization. The different elements of the architecture are described and analysed and the necessity to undertake detailed and continuous research into developments in computer hardware, software and in information management is emphasised. In addition, the roles of the various parties, general management, computing personnel and information professionals as joint owners of the information architecture are analysed. Chapters include: overview of information architecture; hardware, networks and software; the need to plan IT environments; working with IT personnel; the software environment; knowledge representation: taxonomies; classification; thesauri; interoperability: the semantic web; role of Markup; ontologies; the user interface; designing for users. Readership: The primary audience is senior and middle managers in the information profession: this will include all professionals in the corporate information sector, including knowledge managers. The book will also be of great interest to all students of information and knowledge management and also on business and IT-related courses.

Book Description :

Addressed to practitioners of healthcare administration, the book looks beyond traditional information systems. This text suggests how information systems can bring a competitive advantage to hospitals and other healthcare providers. Its viewpoint is neither technical nor clinical. Rather it is concerned with the role and the use of information in the provision of healthcare. The text is divided into several reader-friendly units, which allows the reader to quickly select only what he wants to study in depth. Divided into two sections, one dealing with support for the private practitioner, the other with managing an institution, the material spans a wide array of types of computers. This provides valuable instructional information for nurses, physicians and administrators using the computer as a tool for providing quality medical care.

Book Description :

Cultural forces govern a synergistic relationship among information institutions that shapes their roles collectively and individually. Cultural synergy is the combination of perception- and behavior-shaping knowledge within, between, and among groups. Our hyperlinked era makes information-sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as for the advancement of humankind. Information institutions are those that have, or share in, the mission to preserve, conserve, and disseminate information objects and their informative content. A central idea is the notion of social epistemology that information institutions arise culturally from social forces of the cultures they inhabit, and that their purpose is to disseminate that culture. All information institutions are alike in critical ways. Intersecting lines of cultural mission are trajectories for synergy for allowing us to perceive the universe of information institutions as interconnected and evolving and moving forward in distinct ways for the improvement of the condition of humankind through the building up of its knowledge base and of its information-sharing processes. This book is an exploration of the cultural synergy that can be realized by seeing commonalities among information institutions (sometimes also called cultural heritage institutions): museums, libraries, and archives. The hyperlinked era of the Semantic Web makes information sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as the advancement of mankind. The book addresses the origins of cultural information institutions, the history of the professions that run them, and the social imperative of information organization as a catalyst for semantic synergy.

Book Description :

Enterprise architecture is leading IT’s way to the executive boardroom, as CIOs are now taking their place at the management table. Organizations investing their time, money, and talent in enterprise architecture (EA) have realized significant process improvement and competitive advantage. However, as these organizations discovered, it is one thing to acquire a game-changing technology but quite another to discover ways to use it well. A project of the Society for Information Management’s Enterprise Architecture Working Group and edited by Leon A. Kappelman, The SIM Guide to Enterprise Architecture provides insights from leading authorities on EA, including John Zachman, Larry DeBoever, George Paras, Jeanne Ross, and Randy Hite. The book supplies a solid understanding of key concepts for effectively leveraging EA to redesign business processes, integrate services, and become an Information Age enterprise. Beginning with a look at current theory and frameworks, the book discusses the practical application of enterprise architecture and includes a wealth of best practices, resources, and references. It contains the SIM survey of IT organizations’ EA activities, which provides important metrics for evaluating progress and success. Successful businesses exploit synergy among business functions and push the boundaries of process design. IT’s cross-functional position uniquely qualifies it to lead process innovation. EA lets CIOs integrate technology with business vision and is the roadmap for implementing new systems, changing behavior, and driving value. This book explores the vision, foundation, and enabling technology required to successfully transform organizations with enterprise architecture.

Book Description :

This new book takes a holistic view of information architecture to offer information professionals a vital critical analysis of library and information service architecture with discussion of methods, tools, techniques, and trends. The editors argue that library assessment literature has primarily dealt with performance measurement and change management strategies, leaving little on the ways of looking at the process architecture of library and information services and on methods for business process analysis. Information Systems: Process and practice aims to fill that gap with a combination of theory and supporting case studies, written by an international line-up of contributors. This book: discusses research and methods that help libraries and information services work from strategic business objectives through to the organisation of processes that support the information services offeredopens a new area of research/investigation on the link between information behaviour research and information systems and architecture, illustrated by case studies and projectsuses introductory sections and chapter commentary from the editors to draw the discussions together. This will be essential reading for researchers in Information Science, specifically in the areas of digital libraries, information architecture and information systems. It will also be useful for practitioners and students in these areas seeking to understand research issues and challenges and to discover how they have been handled in practice elsewhere.

Book Description :

The RMF allows an organization to develop an organization-wide risk framework that reduces the resources required to authorize a systems operation. Use of the RMF will help organizations maintain compliance with not only FISMA and OMB requirements but can also be tailored to meet other compliance requirements such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) or Sarbanes Oxley (SOX). With the publishing of NIST SP 800-37 in 2010 and the move of the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense to modified versions of this process, clear implementation guidance is needed to help individuals correctly implement this process. No other publication covers this topic in the detail provided in this book or provides hands-on exercises that will enforce the topics. Examples in the book follow a fictitious organization through the RMF, allowing the reader to follow the development of proper compliance measures. Templates provided in the book allow readers to quickly implement the RMF in their organization. The need for this book continues to expand as government and non-governmental organizations build their security programs around the RMF. The companion website provides access to all of the documents, templates and examples needed to not only understand the RMF but also implement this process in the reader’s own organization. A comprehensive case study from initiation to decommission and disposal Detailed explanations of the complete RMF process and its linkage to the SDLC Hands on exercises to reinforce topics Complete linkage of the RMF to all applicable laws, regulations and publications as never seen before
