All computer systems are built with elements that form layers. There is a hierarchy of these layers as show below. The effectiveness of each element in a given layer is dependant on the stability the layer underneath it. For any element to work effectively, the elements that make up the layer beneath it must be stable. A lack of simplicity and stability in any layer will cause addition complexity and problems with the elements on top. Outer Limits Consulting can help you find problems and get the most out of your networked systems.
