9780070045637: Downsizing: How to Get Big Gains from Smaller Computer Systems

By using existing distributed computing technologies, companies have realized savings of up to 90 percent by moving business applications off their mainframe and into PC-based local area networks. This book offers A-to-Z advice showing ways to network microcomputers to perform a host of business services previously only available on mainframes. Throughout the book, Baker emphasizes that moving to distributed computing systems is not simply a new technical development but a concerted business decision based on the need to link the productivity and specialities of organization personnel. Therefore, the book explores business management and human-resources considerations as well as technical issues. Information professionals will find step-by-step advice for: addressing issues such as security, data integrity and network architecture in distributed computer operations; overcoming the technical obstacles in downsizing existing databases and building effective file server operations; evaluating the Windows user interface environment and its impact across a network; handling the human resources issues involved in implementing distributed computing systems and setting up an internal customer service department to deal with user problems and training needs; developing a systematic "plan of action" for designing and cost-justifying a downsizing project; and much more.
