CMGT 430 Week 5 Discussion Mainframe and Client Server Environments

Post a total of 3 substantive responses over 2 separate days˙for full participation. This˙includes your initial˙post˙and 2 replies˙to other students.

Due Thursday

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:

Consider?the following scenario:

Your manufacturing company has operated with a mainframe IBM computer for more than 20 years. Recent technological advances have brought opportunities to replace that mainframe-based computing environment with a client/server environment. You have been tasked with responding to the senior management group about the security issues involved with replacing the existing mainframe computer environment with a client/server platform. The salespeople you deal with from each vendor believe that the current mainframe environment costs about $500K a year to maintain from a security standpoint, while a client/server environment would cost about $325K a year. But cost is not the only consideration. No PII or SPII data is contained in this manufacturing platform. It is strictly a final product for sale application.

Outline?and review a typical mainframe enterprise security footprint. Do the same for a possible client/server environment. This could include the use of the cloud for distributed computing, but that would also include unique security concerns.

Discuss?the following:
