CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FIRM, IT INFRASTRUCTURE, AND BUSINESS CAPABILITIES

FIGURE 5-1

The services a firm is capable of providing to its customers, suppliers, and employees are a direct function of its IT infrastructure. Ideally, this infrastructure should support the firm’s business and information systems strategy. New information technologies have a powerful impact on business and IT strategies, as well as the services that can be provided to customers.

IT Infrastructure

? Technology drivers of infrastructure evolution
– Moore’s law and microprocessing power ? Computing power doubles every 18 months ? Nanotechnology:
– Shrinks size of transistors to size comparable to size of a virus

– Law of Mass Digital Storage ? The amount of data being stored each year doubles

Management Information Systems
Chapter 5: IT Infrastructure and Emerging Technologies

MOORE’S LAW AND MICROPROCESSOR PERFORMANCE
Packing more than 2 billion transistors into a tiny microprocessor has exponentially increased processing power. Processing power has increased to more than 500,000 MIPS (millions of instructions per second).

Management Information Systems
Chapter 5: IT Infrastructure and Emerging Technologies

IT Infrastructure

? Technology drivers of infrastructure evolution (cont.)

– Declining communication costs and the Internet ? An estimated 2.3 billion people worldwide have Internet access ? As communication costs fall toward a very small number and approach 0, utilization of communication and computing facilities explodes

Chapter 5: IT Infrastructure and Emerging Technologies
EXPONENTIAL DECLINES IN INTERNET COMMUNICATIONS COSTS

FIGURE 5-8

One reason for the growth in the Internet population is the rapid decline in Internet connection and overall communication costs. The cost per kilobit of Internet access has fallen exponentially since 1995. Digital subscriber line (DSL) and cable modems now deliver a kilobit of communication for a retail price of around 2 cents.

CHANGING SOURCES OF FIRM SOFTWARE

Figure 5-12

In 2012, U.S. firms will spend more than $279 billion on software. About 35 percent of that ($98 billion) will originate outside the firm, either from enterprise software vendors selling firmwide applications or individual application service providers leasing or selling software modules. Another 4 percent ($11 billion) will be provided by SaaS vendors as an online cloud-based service.
