    This paper discusses the concept of information brokerage as a range of intermediary services between consumers and information sources. These services are considered in the context of an increasingly commercial information trading environment, including the necessary legal requirements for online commerce. This is not a proposal for brokerage-it is a scenario for how brokerage may organically evo... View full abstract»

    The paper explores the reasons why IS/IT strategy should be aligned with and integrated alongside organisational strategy. Information overload is a symptom of a lack of awareness of the need to manage information within the framework of the strategy. The paper identifies the effects information overload has on overall business performance. We then discuss ways in which IS/IT strategy and organisa... View full abstract»

    The information resources required within the manufacturing environment are constantly increasing. Managing these resources to enable users to find vital information is now becoming a critical issue. The paper proposes an approach to information overload that uses industrial strength hypermedia to manage these information resources. The strategy proposed ensures that the cost of implementing such ... View full abstract»

    Knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) is defined as the non trivial process of identifying valid, novel, potentially useful, and ultimately understandable patterns in data (W.J. Frawley et al., 1991). KDD is an iterative process involving five steps which lead to the final goal of useful information. The five steps are: selection of data-determining which fields and records are to be analysed; pr... View full abstract»

    Cooperative diagrams combine cooperative dialogue and diagrammatic clarity in dynamic, interactive information visualisations. Research at City University into cooperative diagrams is outlined. Key concerns of this work include multi focal browsing, intelligent cooperation and cooperative diagram layout management based on a virtual/artificial reality of force interactions. Myriad applications of ... View full abstract»

    The paper seeks to show how technical developments in the authoring and indexing of CD-ROMs can help alleviate information overload. It begins by outlining the history of text indexing and retrieval before detailing current authoring software. The paper documents a series of projects which began with the Windows help compiler before upgrading to Microsoft's multimedia viewer publishing toolkit. Th... View full abstract»

    The primitive network performance data collected by intrusively monitoring a communication network consists of details of test packets transmitted and received over the network. The delay experienced by these test packets and the number of test packets lost or duplicated during communication provide an indication of the network's performance. However, the primitive network performance data need an... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (436 KB)

    Knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) is a multi stage process for extracting non trivial information from databases; two such stages are data preparation and data mining. We show how KDD techniques have been applied to a meteorological database to search for climatic patterns between geographical locations and how the size and quality of the data give rise to problems in the data mining stage View full abstract»
