Summary
  • Predictions of the declining influence and imminent demise of information centers are premature. The feeling is price, performance, and flexibility of microcomputers and local-area-networks (LANs) will make the mainframe-based information centers obsolete. The PA and LAN technologies have a long way to go and the operating systems still need significant improvements. The biggest hindrance to the overthrow of the mainframe and minicomputer is the billions of dollars invested in hardware, software, manpower, and training. Programmers and MIS professionals will protect their jobs by prolonging the reign of mainframes and minis as long as possible.
