As organizations rush to add computer systems for everything from decision-support to handling office records, they often find that the resulting systems are uncoordinated, disconnected, non-communicating, and much too costly. This book is a long overdue guide to the underlying structure and economics of information systems that helps data processing managers make sound, cost-effective decisions on system development and management. Composed of wide-ranging articles from leading professionals and academicians, The Economics of Information Processing explains the emerging methodologies, needs, and directions involved in assessing the cost and value of information processing to the enterprise. Volume 2 Operation, Programming, and Software Models provides data-processing managers with specific guidance on a range of problems, including: management techniques for-more productive programming activity, methods for quantifying and determining computer costs, and problem-solving assistance in installation management. Discussions encompass a wide range of organizational considerations, from hardware location and alternative designs for information processing and information flow, to valuing information and identifying the true costs of software development and systems operation. The Economics of Information Processing is an essential resource for data processing managers and managers who use, buy or operate computer information services and who want to be certain that their decisions are as well-informed as possible. Data processing consultants will find this overview of key issues a significant addition to their working knowledge. It also serves as a textbook for graduate business courses in computer benefits and cost analysis.
