This book covers the development and application of Itanium. It describes why the revolutionary leap forward in processing power can help CEO's achieve their company's vision. It also discusses the implication of these changes to a company's IT infrastructure. The book touches on issues involving how to move away from the desktop model of computing into implementing a system that best makes use of the IPF. The final section of the book discusses the future of the IPF and the technological changes resulting from it.
