Richard Veryard. Information Coordination: The Management of Information Models, Systems and Organizations.

Prentice-Hall, 1994 (ISBN 0-13-099243-7)

This was published just before an explosion in open distributed processing (CORBA, D-COM, Internet, WWW), which made some of the technical material obsolete. However, it contains some important foundational material that I believe remains valid, and I have started to make these portions of the book available on this website. out of print

Richard Veryard. Information Modelling: Practical Guidance.

Prentice Hall, 1992 (ISBN 0-13-454182-0)

I wanted to call this book Information Modelling Made Difficult, because I was fed up with books and training courses pretending it was easy. As a consultant, I was faced with people who had been taught how to model ORDER HEADER and ORDER LINE, but didn't have a clue how to model BUDGET or GEOGRAPHICAL AREA.
