An Instrument for Projection of Resource Requirements in a Client/Server Environment: A Research Report.
Tellis, Winston
The goal of this study was to determine the information technology needs at Fairfield University (Connecticut) in a client/server environment. The primary objectives were: to develop an instrument to assess the information technology needs of the user community, with particular emphasis on client/server computing and the Internet as a result of widespread access to the World Wide Web; and to establish a basis for understanding current and future economic issues of information technology acquisition. The methodology used had four stages: design the case study; conduct the case study; analyze the evidence; and develop conclusions, recommendations and implications. Six tables present data from the survey of faculty and administrators in the following categories: survey response characteristics; projected faculty computing use; specific areas in which respondents expected their need for information technology to increase over the next five years; high priority technological developments; university policies; and sources for funding. Conclusions and implications are listed, and a copy of the survey instrument is appended. (AEF)
