Reducing the Cost of LAN Ownership
Reducing the Cost of LAN Ownership provides readers with an in-depth look at the hidden costs - which are often unspecified and hard to quantify - of operating their LANs, and shows companies how they can reduce ownership costs. It also provides a unique guide to both the business and technical aspects of running a network - from managing people and resources, to the physical network. It is aimed at networking professionals who, by virtue of their technical skills, have been promoted to LAN administrator.
By using this book's strategies and resources for reducing recurring costs, you can become a more successful LAN administrator in the true business sense while improving network efficiency. End-of-chapter exercises will help you identify costs and automate the handling of recurring tasks. The book includes a NetWare Reducing Cost of Ownership Analysis Tool from Novell.
