Internetworking involves connecting two or more distinct computer networks together into an internetwork. The routers guide traffic on the correct path across the complete internetwork to their destination. The original term for an internetwork was catenet. Internetworking started as a way to connect disparate types of networking technology, but it became widespread through the developing need to connect two or more local area networks via some sort of wide area network.
Learn how to understand, manage and debug problems due to size, complexity and scale in operation of virtualized networks for modern data centers, including developer- and user-controlled software in clouds.
Tier-1 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) like HP, Dell and Lenovo are facing new competition from Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs), and other companies providing “white-box” equipment based on open-source specifications. As this paper will discuss, there are more factors than initial price

Not all IT architectures are created equal. Whether you are updating your existing infrastructure or building from the ground up, choosing a solution that eases deployment and streamlines management while keeping costs down is a wise choice.
This white paper examines key challenges to software development and discusses how companies can leverage best practices and IBM Rational solutions to more profitably and effectively develop software for safety-critical projects while complying with the DO-178C standard.
This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
Web content management is no longer simply a tool for creating Web pages — it's now vital software for increasing the effectiveness of digital strategies. IT leaders responsible for WCM should consider the software's functions in the broader context in which they will deliver their full value.
The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm.
