Information Technology - Its Impact on Decision-Making.
Electronic systems of the future are bound to be larger, faster, and more reliable. They will furnish management with uninterrupted services in a real-time mode for practically all applications. In short, they will provide computing power as a utility company of today provides electric power. But the most spectacular advance is likely to be the introduction of millions of terminals into offices and even homes, allowing most jobs to be done when and where they need doing. Thus, electronic systems will eventually take on practically all the tasks of rote and drudgery which nature and society now impose upon us. In the end, electronic systems will not only benefit our managers but all of mankind by allowing society to make human use of human beings. (Author)
