Fact Oriented Modeling with FCO-IM: Capturing Business Semantics in Data Models with Fully Communication Oriented Information Modeling

Technics Publications
Free sample

 This book offers a complete basic course in Fully Communication Oriented Information Modeling (FCO-IM), a Fact Oriented Modeling (FOM) data modeling technique. The book is suitable for self-study by beginner FCO-IM modelers, whether or not experienced in other modeling techniques. An elaborate case study is used as illustration throughout the book.

The book also illustrates how data models in other techniques can be derived from an elementary FCO-IM model. The context of fact oriented modeling is given as well, and perspectives on information modeling indicate related areas of application and further reading.

About the author

Jan Pieter Zwart (1955) is assistant professor of Information Systems at HAN University of Applied Sciences (HAN UAS, Arnhem, the Netherlands). He has been active as teacher and developer in the field of conceptual information modeling and metadata driven transformations since 1985. He is co-author of the first book on FCO-IM, and has published peer-reviewed papers on further developments in FCO-IM. Jan Pieter divides his time between teaching and doing research in the fundamentals of data and process models in the Model-Based Information Systems group at HAN UAS.

Marco Engelbart (1964) is assistant professor in Information Technology at HAN University of Applied Sciences (Arnhem, the Netherlands). He has over 25 years of experience in teaching conceptual information modeling and other subjects related to information systems development and software engineering. Marco is co-author of the FCO-IM exercise book (in Dutch). As member of the Model-Based Information Systems research group at HAN UAS he is actively involved in designing transformation algorithms for model transformations from FCO-IM to Data Vault and Anchor Modeling.

Stijn Hoppenbrouwers PhD (1970) is professor of Information Systems at HAN University of Applied Sciences (Arnhem, the Netherlands) and assistant professor at Radboud University (Nijmegen, the Netherlands). He has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers at international conferences and in journals, on Conceptual Modeling, Requirements Engineering, Collaborative Modeling, Enterprise Engineering, and Method Engineering. He was a member of the team designing the ArchiMate language for Enterprise Modeling. Stijn currently leads the Model-Based Information Systems research group at HAN UAS and heads the HAN Center for IT and Media. Stijn teaches at HAN, at Radboud University, and at international events and summer schools.

An audacious, irreverent investigation of human behavior—and a first look at a revolution in the making
Our personal data has been used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us stuff we don’t need. In Dataclysm, Christian Rudder uses it to show us who we truly are.
For centuries, we’ve relied on polling or small-scale lab experiments to study human behavior. Today, a new approach is possible. As we live more of our lives online, researchers can finally observe us directly, in vast numbers, and without filters. Data scientists have become the new demographers.
In this daring and original book, Rudder explains how Facebook "likes" can predict, with surprising accuracy, a person’s sexual orientation and even intelligence; how attractive women receive exponentially more interview requests; and why you must have haters to be hot. He charts the rise and fall of America’s most reviled word through Google Search and examines the new dynamics of collaborative rage on Twitter. He shows how people express themselves, both privately and publicly. What is the least Asian thing you can say? Do people bathe more in Vermont or New Jersey? What do black women think about Simon & Garfunkel? (Hint: they don’t think about Simon & Garfunkel.) Rudder also traces human migration over time, showing how groups of people move from certain small towns to the same big cities across the globe. And he grapples with the challenge of maintaining privacy in a world where these explorations are possible.
Visually arresting and full of wit and insight, Dataclysm is a new way of seeing ourselves—a brilliant alchemy, in which math is made human and numbers become the narrative of our time.
