The IT Governance Institute (ITGI) (www.itgi.org) was established in 1998
to advance international thinking and standards in directing and controlling
an enterprise’s information technology. Effective IT governance helps ensure
that IT supports business goals, optimizes business investment in IT, and
appropriately manages IT-related risks and opportunities. The IT Governance
Institute offers symposia, original research, and case studies to assist enterprise
leaders and boards of directors in their IT governance responsibilities....
In a 2004 survey of 200 IT professionals from 14
countries in the Americas, Asia/Pacific and Europe, the
IT Governance Institute (ITGI) found that in 80% of
organizations, IT management is solely responsible for
defining and addressing IT risk impact. This widespread
lack of involvement by business unit managers demon-
strates a consistent—and alarming—gap in mapping
technology risk to the business. Additionally, this gap als
shows that most organizations have inadequate IT risk
assessment processes across their enterprises.

For several years, it has been a goal of mine to write a book on
. While there are many good architectural books in circulation,
they are either limited in scope or lack sufficient detail to be actionable.
Early in my career, I found it difficult to translate the principles of these
books into a logical flow of events that detail the purpose of the activities,
the consumers of the outputs, and finally the control mechanisms for the
enterprise. It is my intention to make these clear and easily referenced in
The Database Resource Manager enables the database administrator to have more

resources regardless of the load on the system and the number of users

When symfony first appeared in October 2005, many people heard about it mainly because of
its extensive documentation. Unlike with other open source projects, you don’t have to dig into
the symfony code to understand how a method works or what a feature does. Documentation
has always been a major concern among the symfony core team, and that’s why we wrote this
book: to leverage the adoption of the framework we initiated, to serve as a reference for the
1.0 release, and to allow enterprise use of a framework written primarily for professionals.
Limit network traffic to increase network performance. For example, if corporate policy does not allow video traffic on the network, ACLs that block video traffic could be configured and applied. This would greatly reduce the network load and increase network performance.
Provide traffic flow control. ACLs can restrict the delivery of routing updates. If updates are not required because of network conditions, bandwidth is preserved.
Provide a basic level of security for network access.
