About the Authors
  • The Internet and World Wide Web have revolutionized access to information. Users now store information across multiple platforms from personal computers, to smartphones, to websites such as Youtube and Picasa. As a consequence, data management concepts, methods, and techniques are increasingly focused on distribution concerns. Now that information largely resides in the network, so do the tools that process this information. This book explains the foundations of XML, the Web standard for data management, with a focus on data distribution. It covers the many facets of distributed data management on the Web, such as description logics, that are already emerging in today's data integration applications and herald tomorrow's semantic Web. It also introduces the machinery used to manipulate the unprecedented amount of data collected on the Web. Several 'Putting into Practice' chapters describe detailed practical applications of the technologies and techniques. Striking a balance between the conceptual and the practical, the book will serve as an introduction to the new, global, information systems for Web professionals as well as for master's level courses.

    • Broad scope: introduces a wide range of topics, with both foundational and practical aspects
    • 'Putting into Practice' chapters feature detailed practical applications of the technologies and techniques introduced in the book
    • Datasets and software for the examples are available from the companion website, as well as lecture slides and other teaching material

    Pre-Publication Review:
    "This book combines the unique strengths of the authors to create a beautiful coverage of the interplay between the underlying deep theory, practical algorithms, and software tools in use today for Web data management. It is destined to become the authoritative source for this topic for students and practitioners alike."
    Susan B. Davidson, University of Pennsylvania

    Pre-Publication Review:
    "Web data management is a broad field, and this text manages to cover it all while tying the material together brilliantly, conveying them as a single field rather than just a collection of independent topics. It succeeds in explaining both theory and practice -- a difficult task that you do not often see accomplished in any field of computer science. It is a unique book that fills a pressing need."
    Michael Benedikt, University of Oxford

    "In my view, for a topic that is still so new and is the subject of so much active research, this is an excellent textbook that I recommend. It is written with undeniable expertise, and is a perfect balance between scientific rigor and practical examples."
    P. Navrat, Computing Reviews

    "For those interested in or conducting research in this area, it provides a thorough review of literature in the field and addresses a significant number of applications and topics, ranging from personal complex data management to enterprise-wide data storage and maintenence, which are current and relevant to the new generation of web technologies and the increasing migration to the web and cloud storage. Recommended."
    T.D. Richardson for Choice Magazine
