Information Systems

In today's fast-paced and highly connected world, information systems have become an integral part of everyday life. Advances in information systems are transforming the way we work, live, and play at an unprecedented rate. Technologically, information systems are enabled by core software, database, and networking technologies, as well as a continuous stream of new capabilities in cloud and social computing, mobile and sensor networks, big data and advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and more.

Formerly known as the Cooperative Information Systems series, the MIT Press book series on Information Systems focuses on the conception, analysis, design, development, and evaluation of information systems. The series emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the field, as technical system design and evolution is shaped increasingly by sociocultural forces as well as business models and strategies. The series, founded as the Cooperative Information Systems series in 1992, publishes the highest quality monographs, handbooks, and carefully edited collections from leading thinkers and researchers in information systems.

The series editors are:

Michael Papazoglou, Tilburg University
Eric Yu, University of Toronto
Florian Matthes, Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen

The Definitive Guide

A comprehensive guide to well-known workflow patterns: recurrent, generic business process constructs, described from the control-flow, data, and resource perspectives.

Designing Secure Socio-Technical Systems

A novel, model-driven approach to security requirements engineering that focuses on socio-technical systems rather than merely technical systems.

A new edition of the widely used guide to the key ideas, languages, and technologies of the Semantic Web

A Petri Net-Oriented Approach

An introduction to the modeling of business information systems, with processes formally modeled using Petri nets.

A novel perspective on requirements engineering, founded on social concepts and strategic analysis of relationships among social actors.

A Component-Based Perspective

A methodological framework and theoretical foundation for aligning new business processes with existing information systems through componentization.

A practical guide to method engineering based on metamodeling, with theoretical foundations and case studies, suitable for classroom use or as a reference for practitioners.

Service-Oriented Computing from an EU Perspective

Research results from industry-academic collaborative projects in service-oriented computing describe practical, achievable solutions.

Approaches, technology, and research issues related to designing Service-Oriented Architectures that will enable the development of simpler and cheaper distributed applications.

The substantially updated second edition of a widely used guide to the key ideas, languages, and technologies of the Semantic Web, featuring additional coverage of new application areas, new tools, and other recent developments.

Models, Methods, and Systems

This book focuses on recent developments in representational and processing aspects of complex data-intensive applications.
