We are at a cusp very similar to what we faced 20 years ago as mainframe and departmental computing
were attacked by personal computing.
The two best performing areas are Enterprise, which includes data centres, networking, communications, cloud and software architecture, and End User including personal and departmental computing
"Mortgage technology is delivered through traditional departmental computing
The current model of the integrated library system remains rooted in the realm of departmental computing
and has not made the transition to enterprise thinking.
Since then there has been the time-sharing mini-computer systems of the 1970s, intended to make departmental computing
economical, and early network systems that allowed IT groups of workers to share computing resources.
Facilities THE centre has access to one of the most advanced university departmental computing
facilities anywhere within Europe.
Clustering is also a key strategy for departmental computing
, putting it as a solution of choice for such applications as e-commerce and Internet-related uptime.
Departmental -- Initially, most health care applications employed a departmental computing
model that, while functional, presented the classic "islands of information" problem to the user community.
facilities include a 16 node Intel iPSC/2 VX hypercube, two Sequent Symmetry multiprocessors, Sun workstations in all faculty and graduate offices, Sun workstation-based undergraduate labs, and access to the Internet.
* Developing specialized departmental computing
Open communications architectures and departmental computing
provide the framework for the latest office-automation strategies of major computer vendors.
Yet other users, with no clear overall strategy, are stalled at the six-way intersection of super-computing, regional satellite computing, departmental computing
, desktop computing, portable/laptop computing and specialized-microprocessor computing.
