Part III: "Data-intensive engineering", is targeted at technical experts who will develop complex applications, new components, or data-intensive platforms. The techniques introduced may be applied very widely; for example, to any data-intensive distributed application, such as index generation, image processing, sequence comparison, text analysis, and sensor-stream monitoring. The challenges, methods, and implementation requirements are illustrated by making extensive use of DISPEL.
Chapter 9: "Platforms for data-intensive analysis", gives a reprise of data-intensive architectures, examines the business case for investing in them, and introduces the stages of data-intensive workflow enactment.
