The best way to get information from the front lines of technology is to listen to the people who are creating the news. In Technology Trendlines, Jessica Keyes has done just that. This acclaimed author and information technology specialist has enlisted the top minds at companies such as Hewlett-Packard, 3COM, Sprint, QVC, and Digital, to give you the inside track on existing and emerging technologies and show you how they can be strategically applied. Using her signature case-study approach, Keyes delivers inside industry tips, strategies, and information on the Internet, World Wide Web, telecommunications, networking, and virtual reality technologies. She also identifies what drives macrotrends, such as intelligent agents, smart development, and the Information Superhighway; and microtrends like multimedia services, information networks, and "teleworking." From beginning to end, Technology Trendlines gives you the critical edge for understanding the realities, potential, and advantages of over 20 of today’s most complex technologies, including:
  • How video conferencing is ushering in a new era of virtual business
  • The bottom-line benefits of EDI, and how to increase velocity while simultaneously decreasing cost
  • Ways of assessing various ISDN and dial-up connectivity applications, plus strategies for remote office internetworking
  • What PCMCIA can do for your desktop, and how to achieve true mobility
  • How broadband, multimedia networks are facilitating data access in the public and private arena

For users, business managers, IS managers, and visionaries alike, Technology Trendlines covers the general frameworks, as well as the specific details of the technologies that are changing the way we work and live. Discover what’s happening now, what’s coming next, and the strategic steps you need to take to stay on top—and get ahead in the future.

This book demonstrates how businesses can take advantage of today's advanced technologies and emerging information technology trends. Includes formulas, case studies, and strategies that show managers how to follow in the footsteps of today's corporate visionaries from such companies as Hewlett-Packard, Sprint, and Digital.
