Enterprise governance of information technology is a relatively new concept that is gaining traction in both the academic and practitioner worlds. Going well beyond the implementation of a superior IT infrastructure, "Enterprise Governance of Information Technology" is about defining and embedding processes and structures throughout the organizations that enable both business and IT people to execute their responsibilities, while maximizing the value created from their IT-enabled investments.
At the forefront of the field, the authors draw from years of research and advising corporate clients to present the first comprehensive resource on the topic. Featuring numerous case examples from companies around the world, the book integrates theoretical advances and empirical data with practical application, including in-depth discussion of such frameworks as COBIT and VALIT, which are used to measure and audit the value of IT investments and ensuring regulatory compliance. A variety of elements, including executive summaries and sidebars, extensive references, and questions and activities (with additional materials available on-line) ensure that the book will be an essential resource for professionals, researchers, and students alike.

This book addresses the most important techniques in improving the correctness of software, including correctness by construction (top-down refinement), program proving, static analysis and dynamic, execution-based analysis (testing and debugging).
Three major software verification techniques are discussed: Semantic program synthesis and analysis, static program analysis and dynamic program analysis. The correctness by construction paradigm is illustrated using the VDM-SL and the corresponding CSK Toolbox. The discussion involves the synthesis of direct and/or indirect specification, interpreting the latter and carrying out high-level testing of the specification.
Problems are included in the text and one or more difficult exercises appear at the end of each chapter. Also, where appropriate, STAD's handling of the concepts is illustrated.
Written for advanced students and professionals wishing to explore more than one technique, this comprehensive text will be invaluable with its unique integrated approach.

This book is the first to describe applied data mining methods in a consistent statistical framework, and then show how they can be applied in practice. All the methods described are either computational, or of a statistical modelling nature. Complex probabilistic models and mathematical tools are not used, so the book is accessible to a wide audience of students and industry professionals. The second half of the book consists of nine case studies, taken from the author’s own work in industry, that demonstrate how the methods described can be applied to real problems.
A valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of applied statistics, data mining, computer science and economics, as well as for professionals working in industry on projects involving large volumes of data - such as in marketing or financial risk management.
