The Art of Network Architecture Business-Driven Design The business-centered, business-driven guide to architecting and evolving networks The Art of Network Architecture is the first book that places business needs and capabilities at the center of the process of architecting and evolving networks. Two leading enterprise network architects help you craft solutions that are fully aligned with business strategy, smoothly accommodate change, and maximize future flexibility. Russ White and Denise Donohue guide network designers in asking and answering the crucial questions that lead to elegant, high-value solutions. Carefully blending business and technical concerns, they show how to optimize all network interactions involving flow, time, and people. The authors review important links between business requirements and network design, helping you capture the information you need to design effectively. They introduce today’s most useful models and frameworks, fully addressing modularity, resilience, security, and management. Next, they drill down into network structure and topology, covering virtualization, overlays, modern routing choices, and highly complex network environments. In the final section, the authors integrate all these ideas to consider four realistic design challenges: user mobility, cloud services, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and today’s radically new data center environments. • Understand how your choices of technologies and design paradigms will impact your business • Customize designs to improve workflows, support BYOD, and ensure business continuity • Use modularity, simplicity, and network management to prepare for rapid change • Build resilience by addressing human factors and redundancy • Design for security, hardening networks without making them brittle • Minimize network management pain, and maximize gain • Compare topologies and their tradeoffs • Consider the implications of network virtualization, and walk through an MPLS-based L3VPN example • Choose routing protocols in the context of business and IT requirements • Maximize mobility via ILNP, LISP, Mobile IP, host routing, MANET, and/or DDNS • Learn about the challenges of removing and changing services hosted in cloud environments • Understand the opportunities and risks presented by SDNs • Effectively design data center control planes and topologies

The visual impact of the magazine format will win students over quickly. They’ll love the price. And the fascinating, sometimes hard-to-believe real examples will keep them reading. Baltzan and Phillips approach discusses various business initiatives first and how technology supports those initiatives second. The premise for this unique approach is that business initiatives drive technology choices in a corporation. Therefore, every discussion addresses the business needs first and addresses the technology that supports those needs second. This approach takes the difficult and often intangible MIS concepts, brings them down to the student’s level, and applies them using a hands-on approach to reinforce the concepts. M: Information Systems provides the foundation that will enable students to achieve excellence in business, whether they major in operations management, manufacturing, sales, marketing, etc. M: Information Systems is designed to give students the ability to understand how information technology can be a point of strength in an organization. The story behind M: We have heard over and over again that the modern learner has a completely new and different set of needs from a learning package. These new ‘digital natives’ have developed cognitive thinking patterns that are different from those of earlier generations of students. It’s important that educators recognize these differences in students, and that they also account for students with differing learning styles. Students today rely on technology as an important tool in their educational and personal lives. M: Information Systems accounts for these differences in students today and appeals more effectively to digital natives. An emphasis is placed on the visual and technology component of the product offering (Connect Interactives), while the text remains a (important) supporting tool for their learning in the course. Students today are used to active learning experiences which is what M: Information Systems provides. The book in combination with the Interactives in Connect MIS provide students with a rich, interactive experience that enhances the text content, and keeps them actively engaged in the course content. Students today are also used to feedback and ‘payoff’ - Connect MIS provides these interactive rewards for learning the course content. For instructors opting not to adopt Connect MIS, M: Information Systems will still appeal to this generation of students looking for a quick read and insight that is also entertaining.

"An urgent and expert investigation into behavioral addiction, the dark flipside of today's unavoidable digital technologies, and how we can turn the tide to regain control. Behavioral addiction may prove to be one of the most important fields of social, medical, and psychological research in our lifetime. The idea that behaviors can be being addictive is new, but the threat is near universal. Experts are just beginning to acknowledge that we are all potential addicts. Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at NYU, is at the cutting edge of research into what makes these products so compulsive, and he documents the hefty price we're likely to pay if we continue blindly down our current path. People have been addicted to substances for thousands of years, but for the past two decades, we've also been hooked on technologies, such as Instagram, Netflix, and Facebook--inventions that we've adopted because we assume they'll make our lives better. These inventions have profound upsides, but their extraordinary appeal isn't an accident. Technology companies and marketers have teams of engineers and researchers devoted to keeping us engaged. They know how to push our buttons, and how to coax us into using their products for hours, days, and weeks on end. Tracing the very notion of addiction through history right up until the present day, Alter shows that we're only just beginning to understand the epidemic of behavioral addiction gripping society. He takes us inside the human brain at the very moment we score points on a smartphone game, or see that someone has liked a photo we've posted on Instagram. But more than that, Alter heads the problem off at the pass, letting us know what we can do to step away from the screen. He lays out the options we have address this problem before it truly consumes us. After all, who among us has struggled to ignore the ding of a new email, the next episode in a TV series, or the desire to play a game just one more time?

This comprehensive book responds to the growing demand to study entrepreneurship as a key driver of innovation and competitive advantage. Challenging the existing idea that technological entrepreneurship exists predominantly in SMEs and as a result of market demands, the author argues that a commitment to entrepreneurship remains the most effective strategy for sustaining wealth generation for both organisations and entire nations. The aim of Technological Entrepreneurship is to provide the reader with additional knowledge and understanding of the concepts associated with the exploitation of technological entrepreneurship, and to demonstrate how associated management principles are somewhat different to those utilised in market-driven entrepreneurship. Validation of presented theoretical concepts is achieved through coverage of processes and practices utilised by real world organisations seeking to achieve maximum wealth generation, with specific emphasis on how technological entrepreneurship is the source of disruptive innovation within service sector organisations and how the philosophy is causing fundamental change in the provision of healthcare.

This book proposes a comprehensive analysis of the existing schools of thought on technology-driven entrepreneurship to point out the process-based nature of this phenomenon. It explores whether entrepreneurship can be learned and examines the main processes that help influence entrepreneurial mind-sets. In the current economic landscape, technology-driven entrepreneurship is the driving force behind national economies and entrepreneurial societies. It is the engine of innovation, job creation, productivity and economic growth, bringing benefits both at the level of the individual and of the society and promoting sustainable smart growth and development. This book provides a comprehensive view of “how” entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs learn and develop their business ventures in a wider environment. Moreover, it discusses issues concerning setting up the suitable entrepreneurial environments, processes, values and policies to encourage and foster individual entrepreneurial aptitudes. It also explores practices for developing technology-driven entrepreneurship in a European context as well as in emerging regions.
