    The first application of electronic computers was in the field of business accounting. The computer replaced punched card equipment and performed simple, repetitive clerical tasks. The system configurations and the application programs in this area have become quite standardized and homogeneous from system to system. The minicomputer was first applied in a far more academic atmosphere. From a curi... View full abstract»

    Industrial applications have been one of the key markets motivating the development of minicomputers. Some of the first small computers were designed specifically to perform tasks in process control, manufacturing and laboratories. Thus the history of industrial applications is as long and varied as the history of minicomputers themselves. View full abstract»

    The minicomputer's power to perform repetitive clerical tasks, monitor and control real-time processes, and perform scientific calculations has made it desirable in hospital systems. The minicomputer's inherent low cost has made it practical. Computer suppliers to the medical field are recognizing that they must collaborate with medical professionals to pinpoint well delimited problem areas. View full abstract»
