Enterprise Client/server Technology: Massively Parallel Processing for Business
International Thomson Computer Press, 1995 - Computers - 299 pages
As the processing engine of enterprise data applications, MPP will help drive forward client/server computing into the corporate date center. Some far-sighted organizations such as American Express, Dow Jones and Prudential Bache have implemented MPP systems to help derive strategic value from the mountains of data that they gather. This book is intended for managers in business, marketing and information technology who are involved in making strategic decisions about appropriate technology platforms. It will also be an important guide for systems and database administrators requiring some technical background in MPP to aid them in supporting the very large and demanding database applications that will be critical to business viability and success in the late 1990s.
