    Even fifteen years ago, most of us felt privileged to be co-located with a terminal room enabling us to run our various programs on remote mainframes. Those in the most technical positions, such as programmers and equipment designers, had nearby labs with somewhat more impressive, but bulky equipment. We communicated with our associates, suppliers, and customers either face-to-face or via telephon... View full abstract»

  • E-mail — The “glue” to office automation

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):4 - 10

    The key to automating the office lies not in the standardization of hardware and software from one particular vendor, but in providing useful connectivity of all information processing devices in the office. This connectivity can be achieved through the implementation of a carefully designed electronic mail (e-mail) system that interfaces with a wide variety of hardware, software and networking co...

    The initial design and subsequent evolution of an electronic mail system is influenced strongly by the environment in which it operates. An electronic mail system used by a common carrier to provide commercial service is subject to constraints and influences which shape its evolution. View full abstract»

    Electronic data interchange (EDI) is a process to automate the exchange of information traditionally transmitted via trade documents. Trade documents include such administrative forms as: purchase orders, invoices, price lists, and bills of lading, among others. Currently, this type of information is transmitted by mail, courier, telephone or telex. In this article, the advantages of automating th... View full abstract»

  • The integration of voice and data communication

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):21 - 29

    Communication has been one of the key ingredients in the success of the United States of America (USA) as both a nation-state and a society. It is clear how important the telegraph and the telephone were to the country in moving information (and the railroads in moving goods) from place-to-place quickly. It is more difficult to understand why this occurred in the USA to a much greater extent than ... View full abstract»

    The introduction of office technology presents a wide spectrum of changes affecting not only users and office administrators but also the traditional structure of an organization. The use of office systems impacts the type and quality of decisions made, the ability of an organization to deliver products and services to its clients and the structure of an organization and its ability to build relat...

    I remember my first experience with Office Automation. Of course, I didn't know at the time to call it that. I just called it electronic mail. Exchanging messages with groups of people that I worked with was a great time saver. I also remember my frustration when I found out that I couldn't send mail outside my own department. My secretary had her first brush with office automation on a word proce... View full abstract»

    Virtually every enterprise includes a component that can be generously termed “an office.” It is there that the locus of administration can be found: record keeping, correspondence files, payment of bills, accounting, personnel records including payroll, and so on. And, although offices vary dramatically in scope and complexity, they share a substantial number of similar functions, a... View full abstract»

    In the last issue, I explained the basis of the international standards activities that are developing Open Systems standards. Now, I will cover the activities in the United States that contribute to the international work and that, in the end, produce American National Standards for application in the USA.

    The following two articles are contributions to a new and probably sporadically appearing section of IEEE NETWORK: the “Shot in the Dark.” Articles and columns which are intended to be thought-provoking or controversial, and which may not fit within the theme of a particular IEEE NETWORK issue, but are deemed timely for publication, may appear here. “Transportation for Scienti...

    In the nineteenth century many scientists in the country worked on alchemy. Some of them were on the East Coast at several universities mainly around the Boston area, and some were in California, at universities around Los Angeles and San Francisco. View full abstract»
