Architecture and the Web.
Money, William H.
Instructors should be concerned with how to incorporate the World Wide Web into an information systems (IS) curriculum organized across three areas of knowledge: information technology, organizational and management concepts, and theory and development of systems. The Web fits broadly into the information technology component. For the Web to be included as a viable IS component for developing solutions, management information systems (MIS) related Web implementations demand a complete assessment of systems architectures and consideration of complex Web application implementation issues. Significant design related technical issues in Web development drive the analysis of hardware platforms, workstation communication, and connectivity. Specific target platform and decision topics which must be addressed by instructors and students include: (1) markup language selection; (2) protocol selection; (3) script language selection; (4) bandwidth selection; (5) platform constraints; (6) server configuration and operation; (7) page design and development; and (8) Web implementation process. A number of organizations have begun to publish standards for their systems (architectures) to ensure component integration and proper system operation. The Department of Defense has developed and published a set of rules, the Defense Information Infrastructure (DII) Common Operating Environment (COE), which is the key to achieving this integration.
