Book Description

The goal of this book is to present a modeling framework for the Virtual Organization, which is focused on process composition. This framework uses Predicate Calculus Knowledge Bases; Petri Net based modeling is discussed, as well. In this context, a Data Mining model is proposed, using a fuzzy mathematical approach, which aims to discover knowledge.

A Knowledge Based framework has been proposed in the book, to present an all-inclusive knowledge store for static and dynamic properties. Towards this direction, a Knowledge Base is created, and inferences are arrived at.

The book’s features, serving as Advisory for Mergers & Acquisitions of Organizations using Fuzzy Data Mining Framework, as well as the novelty of the Knowledge Based approach for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach and development of Enterprise Architectural model using AI serves a wide audience. The same addresses students of Strategic Management in Business Schools, post-graduate programs in technology institutes, seeking application areas of AI & Data mining, as well as Business / Technology professionals in organizations, aiming to create value through M&As and otherwise.
