This issue presents four papers on subjects related to the development of software applications and three papers on diverse subjects. The first four cover the need for automated processes, the ability to deliver software rapidly, the importance of object-based development, and the role of measurements. We are indebted to J. G. Sakamoto of the IBM Consulting Group in Santa Monica, California, for his coordination of these papers, which are drawn from the work of the group. The three single papers cover the topics of public keys for the Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA), automatic phonetic transcription, and image and record management for wide area networks.
