Washington, D.C. -- November 5-8, 2001


Distributed Computing and the New World Order of Enterprise Networks

Andrew Grimshaw, Ph.D., CTO and Co-Founder, Avaki Corporation

Track: Distributed Computation
Date: Wednesday, November 07
Time: 2:45pm - 3:30pm
Location: Washington Ballroom

This session discusses the present state and future of distributed computing, and introduces a new concept that combines distributed, peer-oriented and pervasive computing to help the enterprise environment accomplish huge tasks. It will discuss how enterprises can share the power of all of their resources and create an “edge-of-the-network” environment that will help them set new standards and achieve goals efficiently and effectively.

Distributed, pervasive and peer-oriented computing enables secure and seamless cooperation between parties working on common projects in heterogeneous computing environments across disjoint realms of trust. To be able to synchronize multiple work platforms in multiple locations is a key advantage for a networked architecture. How can the purchasing of new servers be justified while powerful desktop computers remain underused? By using these untapped reserves, companies will be able to spread the network load around to all of their resources, ultimately allowing less opportunity for failure. Companies using this type of technology will become beneficiaries of endless power, stretching their capabilities to the edge of the network and beyond and increasing their ability to accomplish their business goals.
