The management of complex, intracompany, intercompany, and international computer networks containing different communication links and nodes made by any number of public and private suppliers, is itself a complex task. The introduction of IBM's network management strategy and allied network management architectures and products is the focus of this issue. An initial essay, a broad overview paper, and 11 papers that follow present this significant body of work. We are indebted to K. D. Gottschalk of IBM Networking Systems in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, for his considerable efforts in the planning and preparation of this issue.
