In the age in which information is widely available and immediately accessible from anywhere, consumers expect to be able to connect to apps and/or websites instantaneously.
Businesses are expected to run continuously, and servers and server operating systems play a crucial role in this ""always-on"" mentality.
When company sites cannot process a consumer's requests in a timely manner or, worse, reveal that the server is down or temporarily unavailable, the consumer loses patience and leaves the site.
Consequently, the loss of engagement can negatively impact the company.
System Administration and Server Operating Platforms for Enhancing Business Continuity and IT Capability is a collection of innovative research that examines the importance of IT capability and business continuity and how they affects a firm's performance and explores the role of system administration in ensuring higher levels of system availability and system scalability.
Cases and white papers that describe real-world stories are also addressed.
While highlighting topics including business computing, e-commerce, and risk management, this book is ideally designed for IT consultants and specialists, computer programmers, business professionals, business consultants, academicians, researchers, and students.
