Planning evaluation is required to establish the success of planning interventions – both of physical developments and new approaches. Yet this should not be a task undertaken purely by professionals without participation by those affected by the process and outcomes of the projects. This book provides case studies and advice on how to balance conservation with economic growth, the cost effectiveness of plans alongside the effects upon the community and the importance of engaging with all stakeholders involved in a project. Practical aspects of the evaluation process covered include: how evaluation is used in planning introducing new kinds of information or criteria alternative ways of collecting/presenting information how strategic planning objectives are implemented in local practice. International contributors provide empirical studies and cases of application which are of practical value to those involved in the evaluation of planning. The book concludes by offering a new paradigm – a locally oriented, context-specific, participatory and multi-disciplinary approach to planning evaluation.

XML is one of the most common standards for the exchange of information. However, organizations find challenges in how to address the complexities of dealing with hierarchical data types, particularly as they scale to gigabytes and beyond. In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we discuss and describe the new capabilities in IBM InfoSphere® DataStage® 8.5. These capabilities enable developers to more easily manage the design and processing requirements presented by the most challenging XML sources. Developers can use these capabilities to create powerful hierarchical transformations and to parse and compose XML data with high performance and scalability. Spanning both batch and real-time run times, these capabilities can be used to solve a broad range of business requirements. As part of the IBM InfoSphere Information Server 8.5 release, InfoSphere DataStage was enhanced with new hierarchical transformation capabilities called . XML Stage provides native XML schema support and powerful XML transformation functionality. These capabilities are based on a unique state-of-the-art technology that allows you to parse and compose any complex XML structure from and to a relational form, as well as to a separate hierarchical form.
