Work practices and organizational processes vary widely and evolve constantly. The technological infrastructure has to follow, allowing or even supporting these changes. Traditional approaches to software engineering reach their limits whenever the full spectrum of user requirements cannot be anticipated or the frequency of changes makes software reengineering cycles too clumsy to address all the needs of a specific field of application. Moreover, the increasing importance of ‘infrastructural’ aspects, particularly the mutual dependencies between technologies, usages, and domain competencies, calls for a differentiation of roles beyond the classical user–designer dichotomy. End user development (EUD) addresses these issues by offering lightweight, use-time support which allows users to configure, adapt, and evolve their software by themselves. EUD is understood as a set of methods, techniques, and tools that allow users of software systems who are acting as non-professional software developers to 1 create, modify, or extend a software artifact. While programming activities by non-professional actors are an essential focus, EUD also investigates related activities such as collective understanding and sense-making of use problems and solutions, the interaction among end users with regard to the introduction and diffusion of new configurations, or delegation patterns that may also partly involve professional designers.

This book summarizes the results of the second year in the Design Thinking Research Program, a joint venture of Stanford University in Palo Alto and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. The authors have taken a closer look at the issue of co-creation from different points-of-view. The concept of co-creation can also be applied to the phase in which new ideas and related thought start to influence companies, the economy, our culture, and society. The perpetual pursuit for inventions, new creations and innovations is inherent in human nature. The concept behind co-creation may sound simple, however, it is both an essential element of Design Thinking and highly complex. It is about creating positive synergies for all parties involved.

The 21 articles in this book address issues in assessing costs and benefits of information systems both in organizations and at the societal level. The topics include both the ex-ante assessment of the consequences of alternative information system designs as well as the ex-post evaluation of implemented information systems. Assessment includes technical, economic, organizational, and social dimensions. These are relevant both prior to decisions about acquisition or design and after the organizational implementation. This book should make a contribution to the field of information systems assessment. The articles are likely to be relevant for a long period due to the high level of theoretical content, and should also have an increasing relevance over time because the potential of information technology to result in changes for the better or for the worse will increase as more complex systems are implemented. Accordingly, it will become even more pertinent to understand and assess the likely consequences of the information systems being designed and implemented before taking irreversible steps. The articles are grouped into three sections.

Borders in the style of medieval manuscripts, patterns based on Greek and Persian pottery, designs adapted from Venetian lace—this unique sourcebook abounds in splendid original ornaments. Its gorgeous black-and-white drawings include such diverse influences as German Gothic, Japanese, Arabic, Indian, Celtic, and ancient Roman art. A pioneer of modern design, Christopher Dresser (1834–1904) was one of the Victorian era's most important and influential stylists, whose works are eagerly sought by artists and craftspeople. A botanist by training, Dresser was particularly skilled in the execution of floral motifs. This versatile collection of his designs can be easily adapted to art and craft projects, textiles, interior decoration, wall hangings, lacework, carvings, and much more.

Database Systems Engineering provides the reader with a coherent view of the range of issues involved in designing, developing and implementing database systems - not usually found together in one book. The book sets out to show how straightforward techniques for logical and physical design can be used to reason about the many complex issues and trade-offs involved in designing and implementing data-intensive systems. Database Systems Engineering addresses the design issues involved in developing effective data- and knowledge-based systems for advanced application areas such as engineering, geographic, distributed and multimedia systems; and how to muster adequate performance and reliability to support such mission-critical applications. Also, it provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental techniques and algorithms required for advanced systems architectures (such as object-oriented, extended-relational and distributed database systems). Database Systems Engineering is ideal for computing and information systems students, particularly those studying an advanced database course. Its thorough coverage of physical design and performance issues, and of the new generation of extended-relational and object-oriented systems ensures that it will also be of interest to database designers and programmers working in industry.
