The need for an efficient, flexible, secure, yet cost-effective multivendor distributed computing environment is discussed. A comprehensive effort toward this goal, the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) software, is described. Developed by an industry-supported R&D organization with more than 330 members worldwide, the DCE focuses on four problems that require technical solutions: the diversity of operating environments, the (generally large) number of interconnected computers, the need to maintain security, and the need to provide opportunities both for growth and for new network applications.<>
