ITHACA, N.Y., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two books from Digital Systems Press (DSP) took home three awards at the 2013 Beverly Hills Book Awards.
Trends in Tactical Networking, edited by R.S. Ramanujan and J.A.K. Baker, was named a Winner in the Internet category. Developing Computer Systems Requirements, authored by J.A.K. Baker and K.J. Thurber, was also a Winner in the Education category and a finalist in the Business General category.
This national award, based in Los Angeles, CA, is judged by experts from all aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence.
For Digital Systems Press it was a big win. These awards follow on four awards won by Digital Systems Press from USA Book News in USA's 2011 Best Books competition and three more won in 2012 at The National Indie Excellence Book Awards competition.
When first released in 2011, Developing Computer Systems Requirements ranked as high as #11 on Amazon's Computers & Internet Category during its first week of publication. The book, authored by J.A.K. Baker and K.J. Thurber, talks about requirements and applications for developing integrated systems. According to the authors, the requirements aspect is a critical but often overlooked core to the whole project. As the authors state: "determination of requirements is extremely important, especially during initial concept development. Otherwise, you could end up developing a technology that is very interesting, but not useful to anyone—a hammer looking for a nail."
DSP's more recent publication, Trends in Tactical Networking edited by R.S. Ramanujan and J.A.K. Baker, captured the #1 ranking on Amazon in two categories: Computer Networking and Computer Networks, Protocols and APIs. The book draws together an eclectic group of experts in tactical networking. Tactical networks are a key component of the Global Information Grid (GIG), supporting users and platforms in tactical operations. A secure, efficient, and robust tactical network is critical for assured mission operations that are increasingly evolving towards a network-centric paradigm. Network-centric mission operations will rely on the capability of tactical IP networks within the GIG to provide anytime, anywhere network access and connectivity for users and platforms.
For anyone looking to study the art and science of building computer systems requirements and tactical networking, these books are a must-read. Both Developing Computer Systems Requirements and Trends in Tactical Networking are available at Amazon. Further information is available at DSP's home site:
