Multimedia computing (MMC) is becoming an increasingly popular technology. The widespread use of personal computers, together with significant scientific and economic breakthroughs in multimedia technology have begun to make multimedia a practical paradigm of end user computing, from the interactive text and graphics model that has developed since the 1950s into one that is more compatible with the digital electronic world of the next century. Although the field of multimedia computing is more than 30 years old, the rapidly changing personal computing industry has become obsessed with a set of technologies, products and practices that falls under the rubric of multimedia computing. As the industry continues to race toward the 21st century, it is becoming more and more difficult for people who are interested, but not directly involved in the development of MMC to identify and understand the important and key issues that underlie this topic. Multimedia Computing: Preparing for the 21st Century addresses the modern environment of MMC by providing you with a contemporary and extensive source book for issues surrounding MMC today and trends and issues related to the next generation of end user computing utilizing the technologies of multimedia.

Driven by the need and desire to reduce costs, organizations are faced with a set of decisions that require analytical scrutiny. Enterprise Architecture A to Z: Frameworks, Business Process Modeling, SOA, and Infrastructure Technology examines cost-saving trends in architecture planning, administration, and management. To establish a framework for discussion, this book begins by evaluating the role of Enterprise Architecture Planning and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) modeling. It provides an extensive review of the most widely deployed architecture framework models. In particular, the book discusses The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and the Zachman Architectural Framework (ZAF) in detail, as well as formal architecture standards and all four layers of these models: the business architecture, the information architecture, the solution architecture, and the technology architecture. The first part of the text focuses on the upper layers of the architecture framework, while the second part focuses on the technology architecture. In this second section, the author presents an assessment of storage technologies and networking and addresses regulatory and security issues. Additional coverage includes high-speed communication mechanisms such as Ethernet, WAN and Internet communication technologies, broadband communications, and chargeback models. Daniel Minoli has written a number of columns and books on the high-tech industry and has many years of technical hands-on and managerial experience at top financial companies and telecom/networking providers. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to these pages. By reviewing the strategies in this book, CIOs, CTOs, and senior managers are empowered by a set of progressive approaches to designing state-of-the-art IT data centers.
