The post-Ajaxian Web 2.0 world of wikis, folksonomies, and mashups makes well-planned information architecture even more essential. How do you present large volumes of information to people who need to find what they're looking for quickly? This classic primer shows information architects, designers, and web site developers how to build large-scale and maintainable web sites that are appealing and easy to navigate.
Guide to Creating Website Information Architecture and Content
Information architecture (IA) is an often-overlooked area of website design. Too often, as designers, we just let the CMS we’re using dictate how content for a site is organized. And that works fine as long as the site fits perfectly into the narrow content formats most CMSs are designed around.
But too often, a website’s content breaks the boundaries of most CMSs.
Practical SharePoint 2010 Information Architecture is a guide and tool set for planning and documenting the scope, navigational taxonomy, document taxonomy, metadata, page layouts and workflows for a successful SharePoint 2010 project. If you have been tasked with delivering an intranet for collaboration, document management or as a corporate portal, your only chance for success is to get all of these elements right, and then to make sure that you and your stakeholders are all on the same page
Actions of Architecture begins with a critique of strategies that define the user as passive and predictable, such as contemplation and functionalism. Subsequently it considers how an awareness of user creativity informs architecture, architects and concepts of authorship in architectural design.

Revit Architecture has revolutionized how architects design, develop,
and deliver projects-and now you can join the revolution with this
expert guide. Authored by a team of Revit aficionados and experts, this
in-depth book uses clear explanations, detailed tutorials, and practical
examples to show you how to best implement Revit in the real world.
Single processor supercomputers have achieved great speeds and have been pushing
hardware technology to the physical limit of chip manufacturing. But soon this trend
will come to an end, because there are physical and architectural bounds, which limit
the computational power that can be achieved with a single processor system. In this
book, we study advanced computer architectures that utilize parallelism via multiple
Produced by the architects that are actively working on the ARM specification, this book contains detailed information about all versions of the ARM and ThumbTM instruction sets, the memory management and cache functions, and optimized code examples. Both an architectural overview and programmer's model are presented. Coverage also includes 26-bit architectures and the System Control Coprocessor.
Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) enables multiple instances that are linked by
an interconnect to share access to an Oracle database. This enables RAC to provide
high availability, scalability, and redundancy during failures. RAC provides scalability
without requiring application code changes.This book is intended for chief technology officers, information technology architects,
database administrators, system administrators, network administrators, and
application administrators who perform the following tasks:...
AEbook Revit Architecture 2010 helps you explore early design concepts and forms, and more accurately maintain your vision through design, documentation, and construction. Make a change, and it’s automatically updated across the project. Use the essential building information modeling (BIM) data that Autodesk Revit Architecture software provides to support sustainable design, clash detection, construction planning, and fabrication.
This book is intended for Information Technology (IT) professionals who
have been hearing about or have been tasked to evaluate, learn or
implement data warehousing technologies.
Far from being just a passing fad, data warehousing technology has grown
much in scale and reputation in the past few years, as evidenced by the
increasing number of products, vendors, organizations, and yes, even
books, devoted to the subject. Enterprises that have successfully
implemented data warehouses find it strategic and often wonder how they
ever managed to survive without it in the past....
Get the definitive reference for deploying, configuring, and supporting IIS 7.0 with insights from a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and IIS experts at Microsoft. You get 800 pages of in-depth technical guidance on using IIS 7.0 to help enable users to easily host and manage Web sites, create Web-based business applications, and extend file, print, media, and communication services to the Web.
The role of Database Administrator (DBA) has become a key to success in
today’s highly complex database systems. The best DBAs work behind the
scenes, but are in the spotlight when critical issues arise. They plan, create,
and maintain databases to ensure that the databases meet the data manage-
ment needs of the business. DBAs also monitor the databases for perfor-
mance issues and work to prevent unscheduled downtime. Being an effective
DBA requires a broad understanding of the architecture of Oracle databases
and expertise in solving system-related problems.
A virtual instruction set architecture (V-ISA) implemented via a processor-specific software translation layer can provide great flexibility to processor designers. Recent examples such as Crusoe and DAISY, however, have used existing hardware instruction sets as virtual ISAs, which complicates translation and optimization. In fact, there has been little research on specific designs for a virtual ISA for processors. This paper proposes a novel virtual ISA (LLVA) and a translation strategy for implementing it on arbitrary hardware.
DNS architecture is a hierarchical distributed database and an associated set of protocols that define: •A mechanism for querying and updating the database. •A mechanism for replicating the information in the database among servers. •A schema of the database. DNS originated in the early days of the Internet when the Internet was a small network established by the United States Department of Defense for research purposes. The host names of the computers in this network were managed through the use of a single HOSTS file located on a centrally administered server....
This handbook is intended to give such an outline of the Architecture of the Ancient World, and of that of Christendom down to the period of the Crusades, as, without attempting to supply the minute information required by the professional student, may give a general idea of the works of the great building nations of Antiquity and the Early Christian times.
Enterprise data centers contain the assets, applications, and data that are often targeted by electronic
attacks. Endpoints such as data center servers are key objectives of malicious attacks and must be
protected. The number of reported attacks, including those that affect data centers, continues to grow
exponentially every year (CERT/CC Statistics 1988-2002, CSI/FBI 2001).
Attacks against server farms can result in lost business for e-commerce and business-to-business
applications, and the theft of confidential or proprietary information.
