Obsolete Out of the Box
In today's world,
microcircuit technology is advancing at a pace unknown even a
few years ago. Unfortunately, other aspects of system design still
move much slower. The
result - designers must use great care (and luck) to ensure their
designs are not "obsolete right out of the box".
This is especially true in applications where design to
prototype cycles are long. In many complex systems, such as new aircraft,
designs contain components no longer manufactured – before the
first system is ever produced!
Technologies Strategic Plans
By B.J. Moore,
Lida Ray Technologies
Due to the ubiquitous
nature of information technologies (IT), our heavy reliance upon
them, trust in their output and the sunk cost invested in them,
creation and maintenance of solid strategies to safeguard these
systems is no longer a luxury. An understanding of the key elements
of IT, its data and the potential threats to it are required to
develop and manage a solid information technology strategy (ITS).
Although some commonalities exist, each instance of an application
varies in its criticality, thrust and potential threats. Cost
factors and the ever-evolving nature of technology make it impractical
to totally safeguard any system. Thus, a desirable ITS achieves
a balance which provides sufficient system safeguarding within
cost, labor, and other constraints.
