Database Internals: A Deep-Dive Into How Distributed Data Systems Work
When it comes to choosing, using, and maintaining a database, understanding its internals is essential. But with so many distributed databases and tools available today, it's often difficult to understand what each one offers and how they differ. With this practical guide, Alex Petrov guides developers through the concepts behind modern database and storage engine internals. Throughout the book, you'll explore relevant material gleaned from numerous books, papers, blog posts, and the source code of several open source databases. These resources are listed at the end of parts one and two. You'll discover that the most significant distinctions among many modern databases reside in subsystems that determine how storage is organized and how data is distributed. This book examines: Storage engines: Explore storage classification and taxonomy, and dive into B-Tree-based and immutable Log Structured storage engines, with differences and use-cases for each Storage building blocks: Learn how database files are organized to build efficient storage, using auxiliary data structures such as Page Cache, Buffer Pool and Write-Ahead Log Distributed systems: Learn step-by-step how nodes and processes connect and build complex communication patterns Database clusters: Which consistency models are commonly used by modern databases and how distributed storage systems achieve consistency

The Humachine: Humankind, Machines, and the Future of Enterprise
There is a lot of hype, hand-waving, and ink being spilled about artificial intelligence (AI) in business. The amount of coverage of this topic in the trade press and on shareholder calls is evidence of a large change currently underway. It is awesome and terrifying. You might think of AI as a major environmental factor that is creating an evolutionary pressure that will force enterprise to evolve or perish. For those companies that do survive the silicon wave sweeping through the global economy, the issue becomes how to keep their humanity amidst the tumult. What started as an inquiry into how executives can adopt AI to harness the best of human and machine capabilities turned into a much more profound rumination on the future of humanity and enterprise. This is a wake-up call for business leaders across all sectors of the economy. Not only should you implement AI regardless of your industry, but once you do, you should fight to stay true to your purpose, your ethical convictions, indeed your humanity, even as our organizations continue to evolve. While not holding any punches about the dangers posed by overpowered AI, this book uniquely surveys where technology is limited, and gives reason for cautious optimism about the true opportunities that lie amidst all the disruptive change currently underway. As such, it is distinctively more optimistic than many of the competing titles on Big Technology. This compelling book weaves together business strategy and philosophy of mind, behavioral psychology and the limits of technology, leadership and law. The authors set out to identify where humans and machines can best complement one another to create an enterprise greater than the sum total of its parts: the Humachine. Combining the global business and forecasting acumen of Professor Nada R. Sanders, PhD, with the legal and philosophical insight of John D. Wood, Esq., the authors combine their strengths to bring us this profound yet accessible book. This is a must read for anyone interested in AI and the future of human enterprise.

Information Systems Strategic Planning for Public Service Delivery in the Digital Era
Service delivery in the digital era is all about bringing together innovative ideas from various stakeholders in the private, public, and civil sectors to meet customer expectations. Like any business, government public service entities must provide public service delivery to their customers in an age that is heavily influenced by technological advancements. Information Systems Strategic Planning for Public Service Delivery in the Digital Era is an essential reference source that discusses issues related to public service delivery in the digital era and the degree to which governments may take advantage of the transformational potential of ICT to move towards seamless government, particularly for improving service delivery, democratic responsiveness, and public outreach. The book also provides a pragmatic framework for government entities to define their information systems strategic plan (ISSP), guiding the reader in a step-by-step practical description of the various technical concepts, current and future technology trends, and implementation considerations for formulating their ISSP to ensure the maximum gain from public service delivery. Including research on topics such as human capital, knowledge economy, and block chain technology, this book is ideally designed for academicians, public administrators, government officials, IT consultants.

Data Architecture: A Primer for the Data Scientist: A Primer for the Data Scientist
Over the past 5 years, the concept of big data has matured, data science has grown exponentially, and data architecture has become a standard part of organizational decision-making. Throughout all this change, the basic principles that shape the architecture of data have remained the same. There remains a need for people to take a look at the bigger picture and to understand where their data fit into the grand scheme of things. Data Architecture: A Primer for the Data Scientist, Second Edition addresses the larger architectural picture of how big data fits within the existing information infrastructure or data warehousing systems. This is an essential topic not only for data scientists, analysts, and managers but also for researchers and engineers who increasingly need to deal with large and complex sets of data. Until data are gathered and can be placed into an existing framework or architecture, they cannot be used to their full potential. Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and case studies from across various industries, the authors seek to explain this larger picture into which big data fits, giving data scientists the necessary context for how pieces of the puzzle should fit together.

Who Knew?: Inside the Complexity of American Health Care
Despite all the writing and the research, America's health care industry continues to fail at providing health care that is accessible and affordable, with measurable quality. The fundamental reason we have failed is that health care is not only a complex business, but the most complex in our economy. Other industries are disrupted, some readily adapt to new markets; some leverage information technology and innovative and cost-saving ways. But to date, health care has resisted. The customary approaches tried in other industries seem not to apply to health care. Why? Why is the health care industry so politically divisive? Why is the quality of health care services so difficult to measure? Why do patients often fail to understand their own health care? Why are security and privacy such unique challenges in health care? Why is the payment process for health care services so complicated and challenging? This book seeks to answer these questions. This book written by a well know industry `insider' with 35+ years working at senior levels in hospital operations and information technology, discusses nine major factors that in combination contribute to health care's complexity. The author concludes that until we understand why health is so complex, we will continue to see books complaining about the poor state of health care in the U.S., and proposals for change that are generally unsuccessful, and innovative technology products that fail to deliver expected results.

ITIL service lifecycle publication suite [print]
'ITIL' is based upon a lifecycle approach and the core guidance consists of five publications - 'ITIL Service Strategy'; 'ITIL Service Design'; 'ITIL Service Transition'; 'ITIL Service Operation'; 'ITIL Continual Service Improvement'. Each of the five publications represents a stage in the ITIL service lifecycle. With each stage influencing and relying upon the others, the lifecycle moves cyclically from service strategy (where the business requirements are set) to the design, transition, operation and continual improvement of IT services. The lifecycle is driven by business needs and requirements and has a continual feedback system built into every stage to ensure that an organization's service management offering continues to provide measurable value to the business.
