CyberStrategies: How To Build an Internet-Based Information System.
Carroll, Michael L.; Downs, W. Scott
Many organizations grapple with a glut of electronic information spawned by stockpiles of incompatible computers. This book offers solutions in information sharing and computer interaction. Rather than being about the Internet per se, it is about approaches that are characteristic of the Internet and the managerial and technical aspects of building an Internet clone for internal use. Chapters include: (1) "Introducing the Internet and Corporate Internet Clones"; (2) "The Current State of Internet Technologies"; (3) "The World Wide Web"; (4) "Internet Tools and the Enterprise Legacy"; (5) "Security Requirements"; (6) "Synthesizing and Evaluating Alternative Solutions"; (7) "Specifying and Implementing the Solution"; (8) "Operating and Maintaining the System"; (9) "Planning for the Future"; and (10) "When All Is Said and Done." Appendix A discusses the client/server paradigm and provides additional background on the technologies underlying the Internet. Appendix B presents general guidance on devising a pilot project for evaluating Internet technologies. (Contains 16 references.) (BEW)
