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.
