The integration of powerful
data networks into every aspect of commerce affects
the way organizations
communicate with each other, address their customer
segments, treat their employees, and harness information.
As we re-invent commercial infrastructures that have
taken decades to evolve, our goal of transparent transactions
extends beyond technology itself.
Version 1.999 of e-business
infrastructure is obsolete - we're ready for Version
2.002 and beyond. The Web
has increased the speed by which buyers and sellers
interact. Decisions are made faster, and in many
instances, in real-time, with global implications.
strategic direction right is no small matter.
infrastructures must be more robust and secure. 24/7
and 365 uptime is no longer optional.
Systems must meet the demanding requirements of zero-latency
decision-making and end-to-end integration. These
will have to incorporate new web services architectures
and make transaction processing as transparent as
experience in the physical world. There are plenty
of other issues to overlay onto this landscape, like
global differences, privacy and identity verification.
What infrastructure developments will be needed to
accommodate a slew of new applications that require
orders of magnitude more bandwidth and processing/storage

The Rosenstiel School of Marine
and Atmospheric Science is the University of Miami's
graduate school of marine and atmospheric science.
Located on a 16-acre campus on Virginia Key in Miami,
it is the only subtropical applied and basic marine
and atmospheric research institute of its kind in
the continental United States. The Rosenstiel School
conducts a broad range of research on local, regional,
national and global levels. More than 100 Ph.D. faculty
members, 150 graduate students and a research support
and administrative staff of 250 comprise the academic
community. Close partnerships with NOAA's Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory and the
Southeast Fisheries Science Center, also located
on Virginia Key, provide many mutually beneficial
opportunities for collaboration.
interests include satellite oceanography, with
particular emphasis on remote
sensing and satellite imagery, an experimental
fish Hatchery, a leading global marine and atmospheric
chemistry program, comprehensive oceanic and atmospheric
numerical modeling activities, sedimentary geology
and marine geophysics groups with considerable
in seismic methods, and an innovative ocean acoustics
program. The school is one of the National Institute
of Environmental Health Sciences sites for the
Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences Center.
hosts a number of UM research centers, including
the National Caribbean Coral Reef Research Center,
the Center for Air Sea Interactions, the Center
for Southern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing, the
for Sustainable Fisheries, the South Florida and
Caribbean Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit,
the Center for Marine and Environmental Analysis,
Rosenstiel scientists, per capita, are among the
best-funded scientists in the nation, receiving
more than 27 million dollars a year in extramural
