E-based systems and computer networks are becoming standard practice across all sectors, including health, engineering, business, education, security, and citizen interaction with local and national government. They facilitate rapid and easy dissemination of information and data to assist service providers and end-users, offering existing and newly engineered services, products, and communication channels. Recent years have witnessed rising interest in these computerized systems and procedures, which exploit different forms of electronic media to offer effective and sophisticated solutions to a wide range of real-world applications. With contributions from researchers and practitioners from around the world, this two-volume book discusses and reports on new and important developments in the field of e-systems, covering a wide range of current issues in the design, engineering, and adoption of e-systems. E-Systems for the 21st Century: Concept, Developments and Applications focuses on the use of e-systems in many areas of sectors of contemporary life, including commerce and business, learning and education, health care, government and law, voting, and service businesses. The two-volume book offers comprehensive research and case studies addressing e-system use in health, business, education, security, and citizen interaction with local and national government. Several studies address the use of social networks in providing services as well as issues in maintenance and security of e-systems as well. This collection will be valuable to researchers at universities and other institutions working in these fields, practitioners in the research and development departments in industry, and students conducting research in the areas of e-systems. The book can be used as an advanced reference for a course taught at the undergraduate and graduate-level in business and engineering schools as well.

In the 20th century Nepal was in isolation until 1950, and afterwards, the pace of socio-political and economic progresses faced lots of ups and downs. The 1950 revolution of people tried to established people's sovereignty, but was hijacked by the then king in 1960, who imposed his party-less system. Multiparty polity was reintroduced in 1990 by another movement of people. After nearly five years of multiparty polity, Communist party of Nepal-Maoists launched 'People's War' in 1996 which ended after it signed a comprehensive peace agreement with the interim government in 2006. As of now they are enjoying a major political party and leader with partner of a coalition government.

The 21st century is now almost upon us and, whilst this represents a somewhat artificial boundary, it provides an opportunity for reflection upon the changes, and the accelerating pace of change, in our social, economic, and natural environments. These changes and their effects are profound, not least in terms of access to information and communication technologies, at once global in effect and manifest locally. These changes and their consequent demands are reflected in the theme of this volume: Synergy Matters, proceedings from the 6th UK Systems Society International Conference.

For undergraduate/graduate-level Data Mining or Data Warehousing courses in Information Systems or Operations Management Departments electives. Taking a multidisciplinary user/manager approach, this text looks at data warehousing technologies necessary to support the business processes of the twenty-first century. Using a balanced professional and conversational approach, it explores the basic concepts of data mining, warehousing, and visualization with an emphasis on both technical and managerial issues and the implication of these modern emerging technologies on those issues. Data mining and visualization exercises using an included fully-enabled, but time-limited version of Megaputer's PolyAnalyst and TextAnalyst data mining and visualization software give students hands-on experience with real-world applications.

This book conceives, presents and exemplifies a contemporary, general systems methodology that is straightforward and accessible, providing guidance in practical application, as well as explaining concept and theory. The book is presented both as a text for students, with topic assignments, and as a reference for practitioners, through case studies. Utilizing recent research and developments in systems science, methods and tools, Hitchins has developed a unified systems methodology, employable when tackling virtually any problem, from the small technological, to the global socioeconomic. Founded in the powerful ‘systems approach’, Hitchins’ systems methodology brings together both soft and hard system scientific methods into one methodological framework. This can be applied when addressing complex problems, issues and situations, and for creating robust, provable solutions, resolutions and dissolutions to those problems – supposing such to exist. This book details and explores: the systems approach, using theory and method to reveal systems engineering as applied systems science, bridging the gulf between Problem and Solution Spaces; a ‘universal’ Systems Methodology (including an extensive view of systems engineering, embracing both soft and hard systems) which encompasses all five stages of Hitchins’ 5-layer Systems Engineering Model (artifact, project, enterprise, industry and socio-economy); case studies illustrating how the systems methodology may be used to address a diverse range of situations and issues, including conceiving a new defense capability, proposing a feasible way to tackle global warming, tackling enterprise interventions, how and why things can go wrong, and many more. Systems Engineering will give an immeasurable advantage to managers, practitioners and consultants in a wide range of organizations and fields including police, defense, procurement, communications, transport, management, electrical, electronic, aerospace, requirements, software and computer engineering. It is an essential reference for researchers seeking ‘systems enlightenment’, including graduate students who require a comprehensive reference text on the subject, and also government departments and systems engineering institutions

As the 21st century nears, networked computing is becoming the essence of computing itself. Alternative phrases abound--collaborative work, computer supported cooperative work, simultaneous/concurrent engineering, multimedia real-time interactive work--but the neatest, shortest, and simplest catch-all term was coined in 1978: groupware. The two visionaries who coined the term, Peter and Trudy Johnson-Lenz, are among the 42 expert contributors to Groupware in the 21st Century. Other contributors to the volume include Microsoft's Bill Gates, professors Jay Nunamaker and Tom Malone, and management author Robert Heller. As with most technological sea-changes, the groupware revolution is having its impact first on business, where enhanced interaction between an organization's members, strategic allies, suppliers, and customers can help ensure that it remains dynamic and competitive. Anyone who wants to know about the future of information technology and group processes will want to read this book which brings perspective and clarity to these new technologies.
