Html—points out that producing 100 bushels of corn necessitated around 14 labour hours and 2 acres of land in 1945, under 3 labour hours and little over 1 acre in 1987 and less than 1 acre of land in 2002. This and a discussion on bioengineered food are well beyond the scope of this book. 7 Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)—English mathematician and philosopher. 32 2 Autonomic Systems In short, the IT domain was being prompted to face the complexity brought about by its own success! IBM’s prediction in 2001 was that within the decade to follow, the IT domain’s demand for workers would reach as high as 200 million, which is comparable to the entire labour force of the United States.

In simple autonomic systems, an administrator can globally specify abstract goals that can be at different depths in the goal decomposition hierarchy, as depicted in Fig. 3. However, the situation becomes significantly more complicated when dealing with autonomic systems comprised of several autonomic elements (this decomposition is discussed in more detail in Chap. 4). That is, the management responsibility and function is distributed. Generally, in such cases, goals have to be refined into different subgoals depending on the targeted autonomic elements.

2 35 Fundamental Self-* Features The four self-* features considered as fundamental for any autonomic system, and therefore most cited in the autonomic computing domain, are self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimisation and self-protection—also referred to in short as self-chop. This section discusses these four fundamental features. Self-configuration: an autonomic system configures and reconfigures itself in order to adapt to various, possibly unpredictable conditions, so as to continuously meet a set of business objectives.
