BIS 2009 held in Pozna? was the 12th in a series of international conferences on Business Information Systems. The BIS conference series has been recognized by professionals from its very beginning as a forum for the exchange and d- semination of topical research in the development, implementation, application and improvement of computer systems for business processes. The theme of the conference was Information Systems for Agile Organi- tions. The material collected in this volume covers recent tendencies in making organizations more responsive to external conditions. On the one hand, onto- gies are adopted as a tool for better data and information management. On the other hand, ?exible information systems based on process orientation are being developed. A set of 22 papers illustrating these trends were selected for presentation during the main event. The articles are grouped into the following conference topics: Ontologies in Organizations,Ontologies and Security, Process Modelling, Process Analysis and Mining, Service-Oriented Architecture, Web Search,SocialIssues,andERP. The Program Committee consisted of over 90 members, who carefully ev- uated all the submitted papers. The careful review process assured that each paper underwent thorough evaluation and received many valuable comments. Only the best-quality papers were selected, resulting in an acceptance rate of less than 30%. The regular program was complemented by outstanding keynote speakers. We were honored to host leading experts in business process management and information management: Wil van der Aalst (Eindhoven University of Techn- ogy, The Netherlands) and Asunción Gómez-Pérez (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain).
In the 21st century internet is getting as the main communication tool. After the introduction of Web 2.0 content of the internet became more dynamic and it is now created not only by companies but also by users. This opened a new platform where users can share their comments and moments from daily life supported with visual media. Furthermore internet also offers to exchange innovative ideas of users who are not satisfied with the existing products in the market. Collecting these innovative ideas and transforming them into the modified products will lead to greater market success. Moreover gathering customers/users with innovative ideas into a web 2.0 platform as a virtual community and integrating them into the new product development process will minimize the gap between the customer demands and product features in developing new products.
Recently, the Internet has become a new and exciting method of information exchange. Unfortunately, it has also become the most ambiguous medium to measure effectively. Many Web developers miss the overall understanding of how Web sites could be more successful and beneficial for the users. Essentially, they miss the opportunity to use the Web as a public relations tool. This is especially true for institutions of higher education. Even when institutions use various public relations methods they are not guaranteed successful Web ventures. Therefore, research must be done to understand how the Web can be used more effectively to build relationships through information exchange between institutions and their various constituencies. This study will focus on one constituency in particular: prospective students. By understanding the various Web strategies currently being used to communicate with prospective students and how, from the students perspectives, these strategies contribute to their impressions of the institutions as a whole, this research study will delve into this much needed area of investigation.
A Library Journal Best Book of 2015 A NPR Great Read of 2015The Internet in Russia is either the most efficient totalitarian tool or the device by which totalitarianism will be overthrown. Perhaps both.On the eighth floor of an ordinary-looking building in an otherwise residential district of southwest Moscow, in a room occupied by the Federal Security Service (FSB), is a box the size of a VHS player marked SORM. The Russian government's front line in the battle for the future of the Internet, SORM is the world's most intrusive listening device, monitoring e-mails, Internet usage, Skype, and all social networks.But for every hacker subcontracted by the FSB to interfere with Russia's antagonists abroad,such as those who, in a massive denial-of-service attack, overwhelmed the entire Internet in neighbouring Estonia,there is a radical or an opportunist who is using the web to chip away at the power of the state at home.Drawing from scores of interviews personally conducted with numerous prominent officials in the Ministry of Communications and web-savvy activists challenging the state, Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan peel back the history of advanced surveillance systems in Russia. From research labouratories in Soviet-era labour camps, to the legalization of government monitoring of all telephone and Internet communications in the 1990s, to the present day, their incisive and alarming investigation into the Kremlin's massive online-surveillance state exposes just how easily a free global exchange can be coerced into becoming a tool of repression and geopolitical warfare. Dissidents, oligarchs, and some of the world's most dangerous hackers collide in the uniquely Russian virtual world of The Red Web.
Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, Duke University, language: English, abstract: Just a little over ten years ago, the first website became accessible to the public and even though the World Wide Web of today is still in its teens, it has become a phenomenon of virtually global impact. By the mid 1990s, people started to discover the joys of online communication via socalled weblogs or blogs, but blogs really evolved at the turn of the millennium, when the international blogosphere virtually exploded. Anyone could create one, anyone could participate in one, and everyone had at least heard of one. Blogs revolutionized online communication by creating worldwide communities of technology nerds, ambitious writers, and simply those who found an outlet for their exhibitionist tendencies. Decades earlier, in 1981, renowned German philosopher and sociological theorist Jürgen Habermas published his seminal work Theory of Communicative Action, in which he formulates a theoretical framework for societal progress achieved through communication. In the United States of today, progress and the means of communication are inherently White, in fact knowledge and societal power are White. This research is designed to look at the question of democratic empowerment among the Latino minority, this is, whether weblogs provide the Latino immigrant community with means to connect, exchange information, and thus gain social and political influence by the power of knowledge. Is it possible for Latinos in the U.S. to use the medium of weblogs according to Habermas' theory and change the distribution of knowledge and power in American society? Habermas' approach will be described as the theoretical framework for this research paper. It will then be determined how the Latino community in the U.S. could or could not use the weblog as a tool of empowerment.

AppleScript in a Nutshell is the first complete reference to AppleScript, the popular programming language that gives both power users and sophisticated enterprise customers the important ability to automate repetitive tasks and customize applications. As the Macintosh continues to expand and solidify its base in the multimedia and publishing industries, AppleScript is the tool of choice on this platform for creating sophisticated time- and money-saving workflow applications (applets). These applets automate the processing and management of digital video, imaging, print, and web-based material. AppleScript is also gaining a foothold in scientific programming, as technical organizations adopt G4 CPU-based systems for advanced computing and scientific analysis. Finally, 'power users' and script novices will find that AppleScript is a great everyday Mac programming tool, similar to Perl on Windows NT or Unix. In this well-organized and concise reference, AppleScript programmers will find: * Detailed coverage of AppleScript Version 1.4 and beyond on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. * Complete descriptions of AppleScript language features, such as data types, flow-control statements, functions, object-oriented features (script objects and libraries), and other syntactical elements. * Descriptions and hundreds of code samples on programming the various 'scriptable' system components, such as the Finder, File Sharing, File Exchange, Network scripting, Web scripting, Apple System Profiler, the ColorSync program, and the numerous powerful language extensions called 'osax' or scripting additions. Most other AppleScript books are hopelessly out of date. AppleScript in a Nutshell covers the latest updates and improvements with practical, easy to understand tips, including: * Using AppleScript as a tool for distributed computing, an exciting development that Apple Computer calls 'program linking over IP.' Programmers can now do distributed computing with Macs over TCP/IP networks, including controlling remote applications with AppleScript and calling AppleScript methods on code libraries that are located on other machines. * Using the Sherlock find application to automate web and network searching. * Insights on scripting new Apple technologies such as Apple Data Detectors, Folder Actions, Keychain Access, and Apple Verifier. AppleScript in a Nutshell is a high-end handbook at a low-end price--an essential desktop reference that puts the full power of this user-friendly programming language into every AppleScript user's hands.
