This book presents original contributions on the theories and practices of emerging Internet, data and web technologies and their applicability in businesses, engineering and academia. The Internet has become the most proliferative platform for emerging large-scale computing paradigms. Among them, data and web technologies are two most prominent paradigms, and manifest in a variety of forms such as data centers, cloud computing, mobile cloud, mobile web services and so on. Together, these technologies form a digital ecosystem based on the data cycle, from capturing to processing, analysis and visualization. The investigation of various research and development issues in this digital ecosystem is made all the more important by the ever-increasing needs of real-life applications, which involve storing and processing large amounts of data.
As a key feature, the book addresses advances in the life-cycle exploitation of data generated from the digital ecosystem, and data technologies that create value for businesses, moving toward a collective intelligence approach.
Given its scope, the book offers a valuable reference guide for researchers, software developers, practitioners and students interested in the field of data and web technologies.
