  • Adapting Agile Practices for Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, and
           Analytics
    • Authors: IGI Global
      Abstract:

      Date Posted: 10/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Business surveys indicate that fewer than 30% of data warehousing and business intelligence (DW/BI) projects meet the stated goals of the budget, schedule, and quality. Agile methods have been suggested as a possible solution, but because of the large size of the typical DW/BI project, it may be difficult to apply the agile values and principles. In this article, the following research questions are raised: Can agile practices be adapted for DW/BI development' What factors influence agile DW/BI development' Six semi-structured interviews were conducted using a questionnaire. The interview transcripts were coded using the grounded theory approach. Eight categories emerged from the analysis: business value, project management, agile development, shared understanding, technological capability, top management commitment, complexity, and organizational culture. Based on the categories, a research framework is proposed. The findings reveal that agile methods are suited for only certain aspects of DW/BI projects and need to be augmented with project management practices.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 10/1/2017 12:00:00 AM In the Internet of Things (IoT) environment, the use of sensors and sensor readings is significant in research and industry. The number of sensors is increasing exponentially, adding a tremendous amount of data to the Web. Therefore, the efficient management of sensors and observation data is becoming important. Especially, the location and time of observations are expected to play a vital role in IoT. However, existing researches mainly focus on the temporal properties of data stream. It is necessary to consider the spatial features in addition to the temporal ones. In this article, the authors propose a spatiotemporal query language which integrates spatial and temporal features. Also, they propose an efficient method of building a spatiotemporal index and processing the proposed query language. To evaluate the proposed method, the authors conduct experiments through implementation. The experimental results show that the proposed method deals with spatiotemporal queries within a reasonable time.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 10/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Agile Development Methods, considered as an alternative to the traditional plan-based methods, have received much attention since their inception. These practices have evolved and developed over time, culminating in 2001 with the Agile Manifesto. Since that time, preferred methodologies, implementations, and best practices have continued to evolve with a focus on doing what works best for the individual company or project. However, the concept of agility in software development has remained quite nebulous, lacking in clarity particularly about its underlying dimensions. In this research the authors conceive agility in terms of four distinct dimensions. Drawing from the theoretical perspective of holographic organization, they develop a model explaining how each of these underlying dimensions of agility contributes to project value in software teams. The authors test the model using survey data collected from industry practitioners and discuss findings.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 10/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Virtual worlds are three-dimensional, computer-generated worlds in which team collaboration can be facilitated through the use of shared virtual space and mediated using avatars. This article examines the effect of task complexity on team collaboration. A puzzle game in Second Life was used as the collaborative task and task complexity was manipulated by varying the number of pieces in the puzzle. The hypotheses are that task complexity influences team trust, and team trust influences team process satisfaction in virtual team collaboration. The experimental results indicate that task complexity has significant effects on team trust and team process satisfaction, and team trust fully mediates the relationship between task complexity and team process satisfaction.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 7/1/2017 12:00:00 AM This paper investigates the effect of construct redundancy on readers' understanding of conceptual models. Conceptual models play a crucial role in understanding the domain related to information system development. The clarity of such models can be compromised if they are constructed using a conceptual modelling grammar exhibiting construct redundancy where one real-world phenomenon maps to two or more grammar constructs. With two empirical studies on solving domain-related problems using Unified Modeling Language (UML) class diagrams as conceptual domain models, it was found that when construct redundancy is present at different strengths, then the effect of the redundancy on the understanding of a model depends on the modeling knowledge of the reader. Novice readers with minimal modeling knowledge find models difficult to interpret when a strong level of redundancy caused by distinct construct redundancy exists. However, when the models have a weak level of redundancy then these readers find them easier to understand compared to models without redundancy. In contrast, trained readers are indifferent to a weak level of redundancy in a model.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 7/1/2017 12:00:00 AM This paper concentrates on modeling probabilistic events with fuzzy probability measures in relational databases and XML (Extensible Markup Language). Instead of crisp probability degrees or interval probability degrees, fuzzy sets are applied to represent imprecise probability degrees in relational databases and XML. A probabilistic XML model with fuzzy probability measures is introduced, which incorporates fuzzy probability measures to handle imprecision and uncertainty. In particular, the formal approach to reengineering the relational database model with fuzzy probability measures into the DTD (document type definition) model with fuzzy probability measures is developed in the paper.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 7/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Organizations increasingly depend on virtual teams in which geographically distributed individuals use sophisticated technology to interact and collaborate. With the advancement of mobile and wireless technology, mobile support for collaboration among virtual team members is becoming increasingly important and popular. In this research, we study the values of mobile support for virtual team members. Using the qualitative technique, Value-Focused Thinking approach, proposed by Keeney, we interviewed 30 subjects who were involved in information systems development teams and asked them the values of mobile support for virtual collaboration. This study uses Alter's Work Systems Theory as the conceptual foundation.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Several research studies have concluded that modelling grammars that support the Object-Oriented (OO) methodology focus more on modelling system design and implementation phenomena than real-world phenomena in IS users' domains. Thus, the purpose of this research study was to evaluate the suitability of OO modelling grammars for conceptual modelling. Although the research work focused on one widely used OO modelling grammar—namely, the Unified Modelling Language (UML)—the approach developed can be applied to any OO modelling grammar. The first phase of this research study focused on evaluating all UML constructs and identifying a subset of UML constructs that are capable of representing real-world phenomena in user domains. The second phase was an empirical evaluation of the identified subset of UML constructs. The results of this empirical evaluation suggest that instead of using all UML constructs the subset of UML constructs is better suited for conceptual modelling.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Conceptual modeling is currently considered a significant phase in information systems development. Several modeling grammars and methods have been studied extensively in the information systems discipline. However, previous research on conceptual models has focused on certain grammar (syntax) or discovering a way to deliver the meaning of a model (semantic) more clearly and completely. With regard to the construct overload issue in conceptual modeling, past studies have had some deficiencies in research methods and even presented contradicting results. The objective of the present study is twofold. First, the authors researched the interaction effect among syntax, semantics, and pragmatics to discover the preferred design, context, and user knowledge with which models are more likely to be understood or interpreted. Second, they performed an experiment to reconcile conflicting outcomes and acquire a more complete and accurate understanding of construct overload. Specifically, the authors focused on understanding the end users' modeling performance between ontologically clear and unclear models. They applied an improved experimental methodology that integrates three features (i.e., syntax, semantic, pragmatic) rather than treat them individually and employs different degrees of domain familiarity in the conceptual model (i.e., familiar domain vs. unfamiliar domain). The result of this study will broaden the perspective on usability in the context of the conceptual model and may serve as a modeler's ontological guidance in terms of whether or not to contain construct overload when they create a model. In addition, this study makes the theoretical contribution by verifying the domain extensibility towards the theory of ontological clarity.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Conceptual models are fundamental to system analysis and design. However, the actual usage of conceptual models remains poorly understood, in particular, how and why practitioners would use multiple models in combination when doing their work. In this paper, the authors explore the reported use of multiple conceptual models for system analysis and design to determine the circumstances that lead professionals to use multiple models. They uncover both semantic and pragmatic reasons that influence the choice and selection of different models for system analysis and design tasks. Contrasting these findings to existing ontological theories, the authors find that the extent and type of multiple model use is determined by not only ontological factors but also contextual factors that can override ontological qualities and in so doing bring forth desired qualities for users. The authors offer several novel propositions about the implications of ontological theory that will be worth exploring in future research.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM The idea that ontological theories could be used to provide a theoretical basis for evaluating conceptual-modeling grammars and scripts was initiated some thirty years ago. The authors provide some brief history about the early research that discussed how ontological theories might be used to study conceptual-modeling grammars and scripts. They then give an overview of the progress that has been made using various elements of this early research. Next, they outline some of the major critiques that have been made of conceptual-modeling work that uses ontological foundations. Finally, the authors suggest some areas that they believe hold substantial promise in using ontology to better understand and predict conceptual-modeling phenomena.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Domain ontologies and conceptual models similarly capture and represent concepts from the real world for inclusion in an information system. This paper examines challenges of conceptual modeling and domain ontology development when mapping to high-level ontologies. The intent is to reconcile apparent differences and position some of the inherent challenges in these closely-coupled areas of research, while providing insights into recognizing and resolving modeling difficulties.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM A particularly difficult, but important, challenge in the design and development of contemporary information systems is dealing with complexity. Although complexity has been richly discussed from various perspectives in the literature, there is limited guidance on how to address complexity in information systems design. This research analyzes different approaches to handling complexity and finds that there exists a plurality of ways in which to address complexity that are dependent upon the given situation. This analysis results in the derivation of a framework for addressing complexity in information systems. The framework explicitly recognizes implications and limitations of decomposition, inner-outer environments, abstractions, and decentralization, and the role of Ontology. Application of the framework is intended to enable information researchers to identify and adapt applicable strategies for managing complexity in any domain.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

  • Improving the Domain Independence of Data Provenance Ontologies: A

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Provenance is becoming increasingly important as more and more people are using data that they themselves did not generate. In the last decade, significant efforts have been directed toward developing generic, shared data provenance ontologies that support the interoperability of provenance across systems. An issue that is impeding the use of such provenance ontologies is that a generic provenance ontology, no matter how complete it is, is insufficient for capturing the diverse, complex provenance requirements in different domains. In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach to adapting and extending the W7 model, a well-known generic ontology of data provenance. Relying on various knowledge expansion mechanisms provided by the Conceptual Graph formalism, the authors' approach enables us to develop domain ontologies of provenance in a disciplined yet flexible way.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.
