About the book 
 

The growth in Internet and Information Technology (IT) has led to revolutionary changes in the way businesses are managed and operated. These IT changes have been largely characterized with the term, globalization, and these globalized changes in modern business are increasing at a rapid pace. Moreover, globalization requires rapid growth and dramatic changes in the business and market environments. Enterprises must be scalable to support such changes and unprecedented growth. Hence, there is an immediate need for a single reference book that identifies the multiple dimensions of scalability and enterprise systems. This book will fulfill this need. Scalable Enterprise Systems: An Introduction to Recent Advances addresses six key ideas related to scalable enterprise systems: The modelling aspects of enterprise systems; distributed control of such systems; the information systems modelling and implementation of the enterprise system; the issue of data mining; the analysis of enterprise systems through a research test-bed, and the details of implementation using extended implementation examples from publish-subscribe middleware, auctions in the context of reverse logistics, and value net implementation. This book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the field of logistics, supply chain management, transportation, enterprise integration, and information technology.
