Personal computers have proved to be effective and valuable tools in the support of many business and professional applications. As the hardware and software building blocks have been provided, systems have been developed to meet the needs of an everexpanding user community. However, the offerings that meet the needs of business professionals have fallen short of directly fulfilling the requirements of engineers, scientists, and technical professionals in their research and development activities. This issue of the IBM Systems Journal describes hardware and software offerings that provide a base for the development of workstation-based systems meeting the needs of the engineering and scientific community.
