Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member Anthony Scime: Social science data analysis : the ethical imperative.
Organizations that utilize data mining techniques can amass valuable information on clients habits and preferences, behavior patterns, purchase patterns, sales patterns, and stock forecasts. Ethical Data Mining Applications for Socio-Economic Development provides an overview of data mining techniques under an ethical lens, investigating developments in research best practices and examining experimental cases to identify potential ethical dilemmas in the information and communications technology sector. The cases and research in this book will benefit scientists, researchers, and practitioners working in the field of data mining, data warehousing, and database management to ensure that data obtained through web-based investigations is properly handled at all organizational levels. This book is part of the Advances in Data Mining and Database Management series collection.

Software failure is a CRIME! Here's how to prevent it. The Reverse Detective is an easy-to-read, breakthrough book that shows you how to prevent software failure by using the same disciplined, step-by-step process used by professional detectives to solve crimes. There's just one difference: You put the traditional Sherlock Holmes approach in reverse. The result? Instead of solving the crime of software failure, you prevent it by precisely determining and modeling the right requirements before you begin writing code. Getting software development right from the start ... when you put the Reverse Detective process to work, you'll minimize the chance of blown budgets, missed timelines, endless revision rounds, and other career-busting problems. Now you know why this practical, enjoyable guide is destined to become a must-read for everyone with a major stake in software development, including: executives, business managers and process owners, and hands-on software engineers—Publisher’s description.
