Quantum Cryptography is an emerging technology that may offer new forms of security protection. Relying on the laws of quantum mechanics, transmission is carried by a single particle that can only be measured one time, making encryption and decryption difficult to compromise. Businesses are evaluating architectural solutions using Quantum Cryptography to understand its potential benefits. Future implementations of the technology may soon make it more available for enterprise business.
This paper provides an overview of costs of spam facing large organizations, such as multinational enterprises, universities, and governments, as well as small and medium sized businesses that own or operate networks used by employees and other end users.
The information overload on SOA is largely on describing its merits, its principles and the vast variety of products intended to address its needs. This document is written to identify the factors to be considered, and articulate the principles and questions to be asked that will drive the decisions within each enterprise towards creating a road map for implementation.
This whitepaper is written as a guide to an alternative mechanism for project implementation for business owners holding responsibility to deliver IT solutions in the SOA space. It could also be of interest to those who would like to know more about how the phenomenon of offshore/onsite coordination, that emerged in the nineties, can be effectively applied towards realizing the promise of SOA.

Virtualization is a key strategy for simplifying deployment of IT resources and maximizing their utilization. Specifically, virtualization refers to the concept of abstracting physical resources such as compute cycles, data storage, and network bandwidth, and then provisioning and sharing these resources amongst multiple applications.
With Grid computing, computer systems and other resources aren’t necessarily constrained to be dedicated to individual users or applications, but can be made available for dynamic pooling or sharing to meet the changing needs of the organization.
