Innovations in Database Design, Web Applications, and Information Systems Management

Book Description

New techniques and tools for database and database technologies are continuously being introduced. These technologies are the heart of many business information systems and can benefit from theories, models, and research results from other disciplines. Innovations in Database Design, Web Applications, and Information Systems Management presents ideal research in the areas of database theory, systems design, ontologies, and many more. Including examples of the convergence of ideas from various disciplines aimed at improving and developing the theory of information technology and management of information resources, this book is useful for researchers and practitioners in the IT field.
