For decades, in many, particularly complex organization systems, there is an open issue how to support information management process so as to produce useful knowledge and tangible business values from data being collected. One of the central roles in addressing this issue still play databases and information systems. In recent years, we are the witnesses of great movements in the area of business information management. Such movements are both of technological and methodological nature. By this, today we have a huge selection of various technologies, tools, and methods in data engineering as a discipline that helps in a support of the whole data life cycle in organization systems, as well as in information system design that supports the software process in data engineering. Despite that, one of the hot issues in practice is still how to effectively transform large amounts of daily collected operational data into the useful knowledge from the perspective of declared company goals, and how to set up the information design process aimed at production of effective software services in companies. It seems that nowadays we have great theoretical potentials for application of new and more effective approaches in data engineering and information system design. However, it is more likely that real deployment of such approaches in industry practice is far behind their theoretical potentials.
The main goal of this workshop is to address open questions and real potentials for various applications of modern approaches and technologies in data engineering and information system design so as to develop and implement effective software services in a support of information management in various organization systems. We intend to address interdisciplinary character of a set of theories, methodologies, processes, architectures, and technologies in disciplines such as Data Engineering, Information System Design, Big Data, NoSQL Systems, and Model Driven Approaches in a development of effective software services. We invite researchers from all over the world who will present their contributions, interdisciplinary approaches or case studies related to modern approaches in Data Engineering and Information System Design. We express an interest in gathering scientists and practitioners interested in applying these disciplines in industry sector, as well as public and government sectors, such as healthcare, education, or security services. Experts from all sectors are welcomed.
