IT Architecture

Today, A Gameboy for $50, has more computing power than a Cray supercomputer of only 25 years ago. Tom Peters Circle of Innovation IT Architecture Although there is always a need for improved technology, the critical resource is intelligent resourceful people who can relate

business needs to technology. James J. OConnor The central core of information technology involves a study of programming languages, algorithms and information structures. Describe Information in terms of:

Accuracy Verifiability Completeness Relevance Timeliness Computers

Supercomputer Main Frame Mini Computer PCs Thin Clients Laptops and Notebooks Palmtops / PDAs

Smart Cards Input Devices Output Devices Cable Media Shielded Twisted Pair

Unshielded Twisted Pair Coax Fiber Wireless Media Microwave Satellite GEO MEO LEO GPS Radio Infrared

Cellular Networks WAN LAN PAN VPN

LAN WANs Network which incorporates extended geographical boundaries Network which has a centralized point of data exchange Network which joins remote networks in increase productivity Network which extends existing resources Networking Standards
