    This special issue on minicomputer systems in business is motivated by my personal philosophy of computing. I call this philosophy the common computer attitude. This attitude has come about because systems are being dispersed into local standalone systems or as local stations that are part of networked mini/microcomputer systems. The user is less knowledgeable and yet intensely involved in such lo... View full abstract»

    There are many business applications which fit far better the terminology and techniques of industrial control than they do that of conventional data processing. A dealer in any commodity whose price is continually fluctuating, be it money, stocks, or physical supplies, requires real-time information about the deals of his colleagues and competitors and the state of the market: he requires on-stre...

    As has often been stated, a business of any size can be considered as a general system,8,11,13,28,29,20,31with identifiable external inputs and outputs typically consisting of goods, services, energy, money, and information. Internally, a business consists of several interacting parts which may be considered as subsystems, each of which has inputs from external sources or from other sub... View full abstract»

    Small businesses have generally relied on service bureaus for management information. In general, the services provided have been on an out-of-house basis, with transactions being periodically forwarded to a service's centralized computer installation. An edit of the data is performed, and any errors in the data are reported back to the client. Corrections may then be transmitted with the next bat... View full abstract»

    In Japan, on-line banking systems were the first systems to offer computerized services on a full scale. Indeed, together with seat reservation systems, banking systems led the technological development of on-line data processing systems in this country. The reasons for this were much the same as those that prompted the same phenomenon in the US: View full abstract»

    As minicomputers and microprocessors continue to drop in price, people at virtually any level in a company may soon be able to purchase their own computing hardware with little or no formal approval. While such a possibility is clear, the nature and extent of the resulting changes are hard to imagine. Will inhouse DP centers be left with only a handful of clients needing high-volume applications? ... View full abstract»

    Universities are often criticized for being too academic–too far removed from society's real problems. One reason for this remoteness is the academic preoccupation with analysis, despite the fact that the solution to many practical problems requires synthesis or invention. Another reason–and this is the one to be discussed here–is that faculties in science and engineering by and ... View full abstract»
