Web-Based Infrastructures


How to maximize the value of your next Web-centered initiative.

Drawing on powerful lessons from recent years, this book identifies the critical “business, people, process, and technology” elements associated with successful Web-centered IT and business initiatives. Plus it shows exactly how to integrate all four elements to deliver maximum value. Web-Based Infrastructures: A 4D Framework outlines both the unique and “classic” issues that surround Web-based IT initiatives, then presents critical process solutions that transcend technology to cover every dimension of the business. In addition, it defines a solid and powerful 4D framework that will support virtually any project or initiative.

  • Leveraging IT best practices to define and deliver Web-centered businesses and business processes
  • A phased, disciplined project management approach to creating value
  • New value chain methodologies, analysis, and redesign techniques for the Web-centered enterprise
  • High-velocity implementation solutions built upon the reality of constant change

Web-Based Infrastructures: A 4D Framework will dramatically improve the way IT professionals and managers work together to design, implement, and manage technology infrastructure, and how they use that infrastructure for competitive advantage.
