One of the challenges faced by an enterprise with employees in multiple locations is to design a high performance, secure and interoperable distributed computing system (DCS) to interconnect all locations and operations. The problem is computationally hard; hence, subcomponents of it have been studied in detail. These tend to be complex, predominantly theoretical, and somewhat limited from a practical standpoint in terms of providing an integrated solution. Researchers have indicated the need to study the integrated DCS design problem. We merge the complex components and demonstrate that this intrinsically hard problem can be modeled using a component-wise iterative approach. We present a methodology for resource planning and integration that is simple and practical, and can be applied to real-life problems. The methodology includes performance, cost, security and interoperability issues as DCS design objectives. It distributes data and application systems across multiple locations, and aids in security and interoperability configuration, such that the overall design objectives are satisfied. This is one of the first attempts at combining the various components of DCS design and applying it to a real-life problem. The design framework has been successfully used to design a distributed training system for a large, geographically dispersed organization
