In the race to compete in today’s fast-moving markets, large enterprises are busy adopting new technologies for creating new products, processes, and business models. But one obstacle on the road to digital transformation is placing too much emphasis on technology, and not enough on the types of processes technology enables. What if different lines of business could build their own services and applications—and decision-making was distributed rather than centralized? This report explores the concept of a digital business platform as a way of empowering individual business sectors to act on data in real time. Much innovation in a digital enterprise will increasingly happen at the edge, whether it involves business users (from marketers to data scientists) or IoT devices. To facilitate the process, your core IT team can provide these sectors with the digital tools they need to innovate quickly. This report explores: Key cultural and organizational changes for developing business capabilities through cross-functional product teams A platform for integrating applications, data sources, business partners, clients, mobile apps, social networks, and IoT devices Creating internal API programs for building innovative edge services in low-code or no-code environments Tools including Integration Platform as a Service, Application Platform as a Service, and Integration Software as a Service The challenge of integrating microservices and serverless architectures Event-driven architectures for processing and reacting to events in real time You’ll also learn about a complete pervasive integration solution as a core component of a digital business platform to serve every audience in your organization.
Designing a New Class of Distributed Systems closely examines the Distributed Intelligent Managed Element (DIME) Computing Model, a new model for distributed systems, and provides a guide to implementing Distributed Managed Workflows with High Reliability, Availability, Performance and Security. The book also explores the viability of self-optimizing, self-monitoring autonomous DIME-based computing systems. Designing a New Class of Distributed Systems is designed for practitioners as a reference guide for innovative distributed systems design. Researchers working in a related field will also find this book valuable.
23rd IFIP WG 6.1 International Conference, Berlin, Germany, September 29 -- October 2, 2003
Author: Hartmut König (Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil.)
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 23rd IFIP WG 6.1 International Conference on Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems, FORTE 2003, held in Berlin, Germany in September/October 2003. The 24 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on application of formal description techniques (FDTs), verification, timed automata, verification of security protocols, testing, and FDT-based design.

Distributed Computer Control Systems 1982 focuses on the emerging trends in different areas on the use of computers. The text gives emphasis on computer programming, multiprocessor computer systems, and control systems that are considered important in the use of computers. The book presents various studies on how parallelization can affect the function of multiprocessor computer systems; the initiative being carried out by standardization groups involved in local area communication in improving distributed computer control systems; and how the sensor-base-management-system aids in distributed computer systems architecture. The text also presents studies on the analysis and development of protocols among distributed computer networks; how a distributed computer control system can efficiently work in a plant setting; and the problems associated with the design and implementation of this system and ways to solve them. The monograph is a great find for those who are involved and interested in computer engineering, computer programming, and in the design, implementation, and control of computer systems.
21st International Symposium, DISC 2007, Lemesos, Cyprus, September 24-26, 2007, Proceedings
Author: Andrzej Pelc
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 21st International Symposium on Distributed Computing, DISC 2007, held in Lemesos, Cyprus, in September 2007.The 32 revised full papers, selected from 100 submissions, are presented together with abstracts of 3 invited papers and 9 brief announcements of ongoing works; all of them were carefully selected for inclusion in the book. The papers cover all current issues in distributed computing - theory, design, analysis, implementation, and application of distributed systems and networks - ranging from foundational and theoretical topics to algorithms and systems issues and to applications in various fields. This volume concludes with a section devoted to the 20th anniversary of the DISC conferences that took place during DISC 2006, held in Stockholm, Sweden, in September 2006.
Although much has been made of the impact XML is having on Web development, the most significant changes brought about by XML have been in the way distributed systems store and exchange information. XML Distributed Systems Design offers in-depth architectural models for devising open-ended systems and provides templates for complex data interchange and mining theories as related to XML. XML Distributed Systems Design addresses core XML technologies such as XSL, DTD, XML Query, Data Warehouses, Data Mining, Distributed Systems Architecture, Web-based system design, Distributed Systems Framework, SOAP, SAX and using XML enabled tools for development and problem solving. Close attention is given to the way XML changes existing development patters and paradigms. In addition, the book presents the new patterns and strategies emerging in XML system design.

After authoring a best-selling text in India, Dhananjay Dhamdhere has written Operating Systems, and it includes precise definitions and clear explanations of fundamental concepts, which makes this text an excellent text for the first course in operating systems.Concepts, techniques, and case studies are well integrated so many design and implementation details look obvious to the student. Exceptionally clear explanations of concepts are offered, and coverage of both fundamentals and such cutting-edge material like encryption and security is included. The numerous case studies are tied firmly to real-world experiences with operating systems that students will likely encounter.
Designing Distributed Learning Environments with Intelligent Software Agents reports on the most recent advances in agent technologies for distributed learning. Chapters are devoted to the various aspects of intelligent software agents in distributed learning, including the methodological and technical issues on where and how intelligent agents can contribute to meeting distributed learning needs today and tomorrow. This book benefits the AI (artificial intelligence) and educational communities in their research and development, offering new and interesting research issues surrounding the development of distributed learning environments in the Semantic Web age. In addition, the ideas presented in the book are applicable to other domains such as Agent-Supported Web Services, distributed business process and resource integration, computer-supported collaborative work (CSCW) and e-Commerce.
