  • IT: Nifty at 50?

    Posted February 1, 2001 - 4:05 pm

    Fifty years. Hard to believe, isn't it? Fifty years ago this month, Arthur Andersen consultants decided to create the first computer consulting business, effectively inventing commercial IT. In February 1951, Ferranti Ltd. in England completed the first commercial computer. The next month, Remington Rand finished building its first Univac I. And by the end of the year, London food-service firm J. Lyons and Co. installed the first computer used for business data processing -

    Surf's up! The third wave of computing is here, and it'll only get bigger. The first wave was marked by the mainframe and minicomputer, the second wave by the PC. Now, we're moving into the third wave, which will take us to ubiquitous computing. This new wave, fueled by the use of many devices and largely driven by end users, is meeting with some resistance in IT organizations.

  • How broadband and rich-media can improve your bottom line

    Posted January 31, 2001 - 5:51 pm

    The business case for implementing broadband technologies is quite appealing. A new breed of rich-media applications, such as e-commerce systems that leverage interactive video and audio, could provide a competitive advantage for many companies. What's more, business-to-business connectivity costs should fall dramatically as broadband speeds achieve near parity with traditional, more expensive WAN connections. If current research proves anything close to accurate, broadband should definitely be on your radar.

  • A denial-of-service tale of woe

    Posted January 31, 2001 - 2:38 pm

    Once upon a time there were three systems administrators. They were great friends and spent the summer playing ultimate Frisbee, roaming the street markets and drinking espresso at the local java joint. But the days passed quickly, and soon it was time for them to turn once again to matters of business. There were rumors of evil hackers afoot on the Internet, and tales of deadly distributed denial of service attacks being launched from unguarded systems.

  • Microsoft's road to consumer trust is open (source)

    Posted January 31, 2001 - 11:45 am

    It's time for Microsoft to face reality and open Windows' source code. Aside from encouraging customers to go into denial, that is the only way Microsoft can restore confidence in the security of Windows. People must have the ability to examine, modify, recompile and reinstall the code on their own. Then, and only then, can Windows customers have any assurance that their systems are safe from prying eyes.

The common thread running through the four products reviewed -- Aelita Software's Controlled Migration Suite, BindView's bv-Admin for Windows 2000 Migration, FastLane Technologies' DM/Manager and NetIQ's Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) -- is "confusion."

    We created a test network with two Windows NT 4.0 master domains, putting 500 users on one domain and 1,000 users on the other. We took an image of both servers, which we reverted to at the beginning of testing for each subsequent product to maintain a consistent starting point.
