The conflict between MIS managers and end users is discussed. MIS wants to protect the company assets, which largely consist of data, and the end users want swift, efficient solutions to their business problems and have the PCs to do it. The history of MIS organizations and their current status are reviewed. Current client/server networking solutions and future developments leading to transparent client/server/network computing are described. The network computing needs of corporations are outlined. The reasons for treading the path to a future of transparent client/server network computing, through the stages of client/server bonding and recursive client/server management and productivity, are also discussed.<>
