  • IS 238: Client/Server Computing

    IS 238: Client/Server Computing

    Academic and business organizations are moving their computer processing and operations to a distributed environment and client/server architecture to take advantage of the Internet revolution. These large re-engineering and system integration projects require a significant investment in resources. However, the lack of proper expertise and the confusion surrounding the issues of open systems and client/server architecture often lead to project failures.

    This course will introduce students to the evolution, advantages and pitfalls of client/server computing. Understanding client/server architecture and relevant issues is central to the success of distributed and cooperative processing applications such as electronic commerce and data warehousing.
