TitleThe Internet as a client/server magnifier
PublisherUniversity Video Communications
DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"The maturation of the Internet is the most recent of a series of far-reaching paradigm shifts that are fundamentally changing the way organizations operate. Business process re-engineering started a shift that pushed decision making towards the periphery of the organization. The Internet accelerates and magnifies that shift by pushing decision making, and transactions, past the organization into the homes of consumers and the offices of trading partners. Suddenly everything that was important in the client/server world becomes only more important in the Internet world. The lecture explains the core paradigm shifts; lays out a technical architecture for understanding the Internet client/server applications of the future; and finally, describes the core engines that make it possible."
