A shift of major strategic importance is occurring in information technology - from host-centred computing to client/server computing. This book specifies and analyzes the long-lasting business advantages that can be provided by migrating to a client/server environment. Written in an easy-to-understand style that balances technical and tactical information, this book addresses the major transition issues in moving an organization from a host-centred to a client/server system using strategic analysis tools and models. It explains how to create the best possible information systems for the company; design products that achieve maximum market share; and design the right client/server solution for maximum flexibility, manoeuverability and modularity. The author explains what client/server computing is and how it can maximize a corporation's use of information technology; analyzes the major issues in moving a company from the current host-centred computing model to the client/server model; introduces and explains the Five Forces model of business competition; discusses critical business issues identified by information system executives as the objectives set for information technology within their companies; and provides an analysis of the shortcomings of current information technology implementation.
