Data integration flows for business intelligence

Umeshwar Dayal, Malu Castellanos, Alkis Simitsis, Kevin Wilkinson
2009 Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Extending Database Technology Advances in Database Technology - EDBT '09  
The goal is to facilitate the design and implementation of optimal flows to meet business requirements.  ...  This imposes additional requirements and tradeoffs, resulting in even more complexity in the design of data integration flows.  ...  The challenge is to link the business processes and objectives with the ETL design process. A data warehouse is, in effect, an encapsulation and abstraction of one or more business processes.  ...

2005 European Conference on Information Systems  
This facilitates the whole business process of the e-marketplace, from matchmaking, recommendation, to negotiation.  ...  Because ontology provides the key knowledge about the inter-relationships among the issues and alternatives of the traders' requirements, we show how to elicit trade requirements, alternatives, and tradeoff  ...  The architecture is designed to support the business processes instantiated from the e-marketplace conceptual model in Figure 1 and the system flow in Figure 2 .  ...

A semantic approach for designing business protocols

Ashok U. Mallya, Munindar P. Singh
2004 Proceedings of the 13th international World Wide Web conference on Alternate track papers & posters - WWW Alt. '04  
A variety of business protocols would be needed to capture subtle business needs. We propose that the same kinds of conceptual abstractions be developed for protocols as for information models.  ...  In support of the above, we develop a formal semantics for protocols, an operational characterization of them, and an algebra for protocol composition.  ...  We want general protocols to support flexibility, and specialized protocols to support efficiency, security, or risk management. Ultimately, each environment may have a set of desirable protocols.  ...

QoX-driven ETL design

Alkis Simitsis, Kevin Wilkinson, Malu Castellanos, Umeshwar Dayal
2009 Proceedings of the 35th SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '09  
We discuss the challenges and tradeoffs among QoX metrics and illustrate their impact on alternative designs.  ...  As business intelligence becomes increasingly essential for organizations and as it evolves from strategic to operational, the complexity of Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) processes grows.  ...  In other words, there may be several alternative translations from conceptual model to logical model and these alternatives can be driven by the QoX objectives and tradeoffs.  ...

Modeling Quality Attributes in Software Product Line Architecture

Lei Tan, Yuqing Lin, Huilin Ye
2012 2012 Spring Congress on Engineering and Technology  
In this paper, we introduce two additional views (the quality view and the tradeoff view) to the QADA framework.  ...  Qualitydriven Architecture Design and quality Analysis (QADA) is the architecture design method, which has attracted many attentions since it emphasizes on addressing quality issues of the member products  ...  So here we have to consider the tradeoff between the system performance and flexibility of the system.  ...
