Y2K Planning: Outsourcing Takes Center Stage

The show must go on for small- and mid-sized companies that don't have the IT infrastructure or financial resources to tackle the Year 2000 problem on top of existing responsibilities. Hence, outsourcing, usually by companies in a financial bind, is expected to grow exponentially over the next several years, notes Clare Gillan, vice president of applications research at International Data Corp. (IDC), a market research firm. Year 2000 compliance is a major reason for this trend, she says, although other factors such as offloading secondary or time- or labor-intensive processes also figure into the equation.
Data Communications Magazine 30 1999 Market Forecast Can the bulls beat back the bears? After this year's roller-coaster stock rides and Asia-Pacific meltdowns, the best minds in business seem to be focusing on that question. But should anyone in the networking and telecom industries care? Maybe not. Because barring major crisis, 1999 should be much like 1998-a year of steady growth, strong in some areas if unspectacular in others.

The United States IT Workforce Shortage

With all the attention being devoted to the Year 2000 computer crisis and the European Monetary Unit conversion, it is almost no surprise that a far larger crisis -- the information-technology (IT) workforce labor shortage -- is being overshadowed. In this article, they provide a multidimensional view of IT workforce labor shortage issues, drawing heavily on the findings of their own 1995, 1996, and first-half 1997 Worldwide Benchmark Project findings.

Darling, I'm Not Content!

Content can outride big budgets. It's  about to happen with advertising. A million niche brands will grip -- have already gripped -- the grassroots with compelling content, while the Proctor & Gambles blast yet more advertising to ABC1s and wonder why they're not listening. Content will bury mass-market advertising. And unless ad agencies look up, they'll be six feet under.

Solving the Software Safety Paradox

Embedded systems running safety-critical applications have a quandary. How can the software know that it’s operating correctly? Can a malfunctioning system diagnose itself and either correct the problem or halt itself? This article examines some techniques that allow the software to monitor itself, with a bias toward those techniques that can be easily implemented in almost any embedded system.

Internet Mom: Office Rage

Beneath our veneers of good manners and taste we are all just one step away from savagery. And while we sit passively at our computers, dutifully answering our e-mails, clicking through our spreadsheets, "yes sir"-ing the boss, and watching the stock charts do their somersaults, there's a quiet rage burning within us. Or maybe it's not such a quiet rage.

Critics Charge DOD Web Policy Too Restrictive

This month's release of the Defense Department's long-awaited policies and procedures for posting official information on DOD World Wide Web sites puts unprecedented discretion in the hands of local commanders and marks a significant departure from past Web guidance.

All Kinds of Places Are Good for Ads

As many commentators have already noted, Sherlock, Apple's new search utility, or its "search internet" feature, relies on a curious arrangement with several major search engines. Sherlock enables Mac OS users to do multiple searches of web sites from the desktop, without opening a browser; the results appear in a special Sherlock window, and display a banner advertisement along with a few snippets of hypertext summarizing the document selected. To read the entire document itself, you simply click on the link, and your default browser loads up the page for you.

Inside the NMSO

There is a lot of money to be made by selling computer products to government, and the competition is getting fierce. Put simply, the NMSO is the purchasing bible for federal civil servants for microcomputers. It's where they look when they need to buy computers, because the companies listed on the NMSO have already been approved by Public Works and Government Services Canada. For computer manufacturers and vendors alike, the big question is, "how do I get on the NMSO?"
