architecture tiers  recap, client/server is an architecture in which the user's PC (the client) is the requesting machine, and the server is the supplying machine, both of which are connected via a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, client/server was the hot buzzword as applications were migrated from centralized minicomputers and mainframes to networks of desktop computers. To be a true client/server environment, both client and server must share in the business

ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

How to Make Virtualized iSCSI SANs Work for You


Enterprises of all sizes are building flexible storage infrastructures by using iSCSI and virtualization technologies that let them allocate and shift storage area network (SAN) resources dynamically in response to the demands of their virtualized server environments. Find out how a virtualized infrastructure with virtualization technologies can help you achieve an IT infrastructure that is simple to manage and scale.

architecture tiers  and the PS Series architecture nearly eliminates downtime caused by expanding or managing a storage system. Because capacity can be added so easily, IT managers need to buy only the storage necessary for today's applications, easing budget constraints caused by excessive purchases. Additional benefits of the virtualized SAN environment include the transparent application of storage tiers. EqualLogic storage groups can use multiple storage tiers contained within the storage pool and automatically optimize Read More

Essential ERP-Its Underpinning Technology


In its simplest sense, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more.

architecture tiers  La différence entre une architecture deux tiers et trois tiers est expliquée à la figure 1. Dans l’architecture deux tiers, l’ordinateur client se connecte à un seul serveur. Le serveur contrôle généralement la base de données centralisée alors que le client s’occupe de l’interface utilisateur. La différence entre les deux réside dans le fait que le serveur répond aux requêtes de plusieurs clients, alors que les postes clients ne soumettent leurs requêtes généralement qu’à un Read More

A New Development Framework on iSeries or i5/OS: Architecture


It is feasible to create native, intuitive and graphical business applications using just available software in i/OS and Open source Java. Using iSeries as an integrated business server is more than just a dream.

architecture tiers  on iSeries or i5/OS: Architecture Introduction The iSeries server, IBM's showpiece and well-known successor of the AS/400, has been implemented on a large scale over the past twenty-five years in small and medium businesses (SMB). This midrange computer is still being praised because of its operational ease-of-use, its reliability, flexibility, and scalability. However, because it lacks a graphical user interface and poorly integrates with other software products, its use has declined and users have Read More
