Summary

Summary

IBM's System/390 computers are selling faster than any mainframe system ever has because the age of multimedia and e-commerce requires the crunching and shifting of vast amounts of data. This new edition closely examines the role large computers will play in the coming century. All the new hardware models and operating system products-VSE, MVS, VM, AIX, and Open Edition--now available for the S/390--are fully explained, as are such critical business issues as cost justification, lease versus purchase, support, security, and maintenance. Three hypothetical businesses (small, medium, and large) are described and then outfitted with the appropriate S/390 solution.


Summary

Coleman helps nontechnical readers quickly become well-versed in the basics of the System/390 family of hardware, software and peripherals. He also introduces the basic System/390 architecture and many business issues such as year 2000 support, maintenance, user training, cost justification, and lease vs. purchase concerns.
