UniForum will publish this new title in June in coordination with its IT Horizons '97 Conference of the same name. Edited by well known industry journalist, Philip Gill, the book will have nine chapters covering topics including:
- The Network Computer Phenomenon -
Why NCs and Why Now?
- Thin Clients: NCs, Net PCs and Others
- Powering the Client - The Server Side
- Implementation, Architecture, Installation - Making it Fit
- The Network Management Load
- The Business Case: TCO and Key Management Issues
- Applications and Case Studies - Thin Clients at Work
- Crystal Ball Gazing -
Where Does the NC Market Go From Here?
The goal will be to provide in these chapters sufficient information for CIOs and other senior managers to begin to understand the potential impact of network computing; as well as to educate systems and network administrators who will be charged with the strategy of implementation. The book will give answers to important questions but will also guide readers to sources of important information about standards, vendors and products.
A glossary of terms, vendor lists with URLs, and a resource bibliography will be included as will information on both the Network Computer Reference Profile (NCRP) from The Open Group, and the NetPC Reference Specification from Intel/Microsoft.
