Stefano Ceri is Professor of Database Systems at Politecnico di Milano. His research interests are focused on extending database technology to incorporate data distribution, deductive and active rules, and object orientation.
Piero Fraternali is professor of Information Systems at Politecnico di Milano.
Marco Brambilla is actively researching on methods and tools for model-driven software development, with special focus on web applications, search engines, social networks and crowdsourcing platforms. He is professor of software engineering and researcher at Politecnico di Milano and partner of the spinoff WebRatio, which produces MDD tools based on IFML, UML, and BPMN. He is the principal contributor of the Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML). He authored several books, including Developing Data-Intensive Web Applications (Morgan Kaufmann, 2002) and Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice (Morgan&Claypool, 2012).
This book is intended for Computer Science students, application developers, business professionals, and researchers who seek information on data mining.Presents dozens of algorithms and implementation examples, all in pseudo-code and suitable for use in real-world, large-scale data mining projectsAddresses advanced topics such as mining object-relational databases, spatial databases, multimedia databases, time-series databases, text databases, the World Wide Web, and applications in several fieldsProvides a comprehensive, practical look at the concepts and techniques you need to get the most out of your data
Interaction Flow Modeling Language provides you with unique insight into the benefits of engineering web and mobile applications with an agile model driven approach. Concepts are explained through intuitive examples, drawn from real-world applications. The authors accompany you in the voyage from visual specifications of requirements to design and code production. The book distills more than twenty years of practice and provides a mix of methodological principles and concrete and immediately applicable techniques.Learn OMG’s new IFML standard from the authors of the standard with this approachable referenceIntroduces IFML concepts step-by-step, with many practical examples and an end-to-end case exampleShows how to integrate IFML with other OMG standards including UML, BPMN, CWM, SoaML and SysMLDiscusses how to map models into code for a variety of web and mobile platforms and includes many useful interface modeling patterns and best practices
