We examine how the Liberty Alliance framework for a privacy-enabled Business to Business (B2B) network of interoperating services called a 'Circle of Trust' (CoT) can be leveraged to monitor activity across the entire network for the purposes of safeguarding and improving services. A proposed Audit Trail Service (ATS) is analysed as a first step in monitoring activity within a CoT. Then, a proposed data collection service is analysed as a mechanism for systematically correlating and analysing consumer activity and content usage on an individual and aggregate basis. The analysis is motivated and illustrated through an information-rich e-commerce scenario.

Case study - New monitoring network for Scottish ports
In the past, the ferries operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to port to assess weather and tidal conditions would allow them to berth alongside the pier. In efforts to save time, fuel and costs, the Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns many of the ferries, ports and harbors in the region, decided to install 15 tide and weather stations, using OTT technology. These stations also provide passengers with earlier warnings of potential ferry cancellation, as well as protect the...
Cloud computing for noise monitoring
ABSTRACTCloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over the Internet. This means that software, hardware and network resources are centrally managed. The ubiquitous availability of high-capacity networks and reduced cost of both client and server hardware have led to a tremendous growth in cloud computing. The concept gives a huge benefit for both acoustic consultants and noise polluters that avoid investing time and money on expensive server hardware and installation,...
Data analytics methodology for monitoring quality sensors and events in the Barcelona drinking ...
Water quality management is a key area to guarantee drinking water safety to users. This task is based on disinfection techniques, such as chlorination, applied to the drinking water network to prevent the growth of microorganisms present in the water. The continuous monitoring of water quality parameters is fundamental to assess the sanitary conditions of the drinking water and to detect unexpected events. The whole process is based on the assumption that the information retrieved from quality sensors is totally...
Decoding the Molecular Network that Drives Hypocotyl Elongation
Auxin and brassinosteroid (BR) promote cell expansion through interdependent and synergistic pathways (reviewed in Hardtke et al., 2007). Although the biosynthetic pathways that produce these phytohormones have been characterized and the downstream response factors that trigger cell expansion are known (Oh et al., 2014), the transcriptional network that brings about localized changes in auxin and BR levels in response to endogenous developmental signals is unclear. The TEOSINTE BRANCHED 1, CYCLOIDEA, PROLIFERATING...
Case Study - Groundwater Monitoring Network Investigation - Okanagan Kootenay Region
Western Water Associates was tasked with analyzing groundwater chemistry data, recommending modifications of monitoring networks, and enhancing the capability of client staff to interpret data and present findings. They selected EnviroInsite as their principal data visualization application and made rich use of its capabilities to present spatial and temporal patterns in water quality data.
