    A BPMN-Based Design and Maintenance Framework for ETL Processes

    Business Intelligence (BI) applications require the design, implementation and maintenance of processes that extract, transform and load suitable data for analysis. The development of these processes (known as ETL) is an inherently complex problem that is typically costly and time consuming. In a previous paper, the authors have proposed a...

    Fusion Cubes: Towards Self-Service Business Intelligence

    Self-service business intelligence is about enabling non-expert users to make well-informed decisions by enriching the decision process with situational data, i.e., data that have a narrow focus on a specific business problem and typically, a short lifespan for a small group of users. Often, these data are not owned and...

    Using Web-Based Personalization on Spatial Data Warehouses

    Spatial Data Warehouses (SDW) relies on extended Multi-Dimensional (MD) models in order to provide decision makers with appropriate structures to intuitively analyze spatial data. Several SDW development approaches provide a conceptual modeling and some guidelines in order to obtain logical schemas. However, there are two main drawbacks: spatial modeling is...

    Towards a Reverse Engineering Approach for Guiding User in Applying Data Mining

    Data mining is at the core of the knowledge discovery process. However, an initial preprocessing step is crucial for assuring reliable results within this process. Preprocessing of data is a time-consuming and non-trivial task since data quality issues should be considered. This is even worst when dealing with complex data,...

    Open Business Intelligence: on the Importance of Data Quality Awareness in User-Friendly Data Mining

    Citizens demand more and more data for making decisions in their daily life. Therefore, mechanisms that allow citizens to understand and analyze Linked Open Data (LOD) in a user-friendly manner are highly required. To this aim, the concept of Open Business Intelligence (OpenBI) is introduced in this position paper. OpenBI...

    Directional Antenna based SBSAA-MAC Protocol for MANETS Review and Performance Evaluation

    Wireless Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs/SANETs) are formed with mobile/static wireless nodes and have different set of problems as compared to their wired counterparts. IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol was initially designed for infrastructure based networks and is therefore not able to address the issues linked with wireless ad-hoc networks...

    The Trade-offs Of Social Assistance Programs In The Labor Market: The Case Of The "Seguro Popular" Program In Mexico

    In 2002, the Mexican government began a tremendous financial effort to provide health insurance, Seguro Popular (SP), to the 50 million uninsured in Mexico. In doing so, the states and municipalities offered virtually free health insurance to uncovered self-employed and informal salaried workers substantially altering the incentives for workers and...

    Wireless Smart Sensors Networks, Systems, Trends and Its Impact in Environmental Monitoring

    Wireless Smart Sensor Networks (WSSNs) offers a new paradigm regards to the way that the traditional monitoring systems have been designed, all this happens due to the impact-generating by technology in society. The deployment of Information and Communication Technologies or ICT allow one rely with small devices that are able...

    Designing Data Warehouses for Geographic OLAP querying by using MDA

    Data aggregation in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a desirable feature; spatial data are integrated in OLAP (On-Line Analytical Processing) engines for this purpose. However, the development and operation of those systems is still a complex task due to methodologies followed. There are some ad hoc solutions that deal only...
