Release Date: 2013
Genre: Computers

For many decades, IT infrastructure has provided the foundation for successful application deployment. Yet, general knowledge of infrastructures is still not widespread. Experience shows that software developers, system administrators, and project managers often have little knowledge of the big influence IT infrastructures have on the performance, availability and security of software applications. This book explains the concepts, history, and implementation of IT infrastructures. Although many of books can be found on individual infrastructure building blocks, this is the first book to describe all of them: datacenters, servers, networks, storage, virtualization, operating systems, and end user devices. Whether you need an introduction to infrastructure technologies, a refresher course, or a study guide for a computer science class, you will find that the presented building blocks and concepts provide a solid foundation for understanding the complexity of today's IT infrastructures.

Information Systems Today

Author: Joseph Valacich
Publisher: Pearson
ISBN: 9780134606361
Release Date: 2017-01-10
Genre: Business & Economics

Our primary goal for Information Systems Today: Managing The Digital World, 8/e, was to emphasize the importance of information systems to all business students as the role of information technology and systems continues to expand within organizations and society. Most notably, we extensively examine how five big megatrends—mobile, social media, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and Big Data—are transforming individuals, organizations, and society. Given this clear focus, we are better able to identify those topics most critical to students and future business professionals. Consequently, we have made substantial revisions to the basic content of the chapters and pedagogical elements as well as introduced several new elements that we believe help achieve this goal. In addition to the changes within the main chapter content, we have also added two new features to each chapter—Green IT and Security Matters. Green IT presents environmental issues arising from the use of information systems. For example, in Chapter 4, we discuss the environmental impacts of online shopping. Security Matters presents some current issues and threats arising from the ubiquitous use of information systems. For example, in Chapter 5, we discuss how hacktivists challenged the extramarital dating website Ashley Madison.
