Information Resources Management: Systems Communicating with Systems. A Session Especially Designed by Senior Managers for Senior Management Officials. Viewgraphs and Presentations. Intensive One-Day Symposium (Gaithersburg, Maryland, December 3, 1987).
General Services Administration, Washington, DC.; National Bureau of Standards (DOC), Washington, DC.
Summaries of the welcoming and opening remarks for a symposium on the standards issues that will affect the federal government's planning, acquisition, and use of integrated computer and telecommunications systems over the next five years set the stage for the keynote address by Joseph Timko of IBM entitled "Standards--Perspectives and Evolution." Notes, outlines, and/or viewgraphs used by individual presenters in the two sessions of the symposium are then provided. Six presentations and a panel discussion in the first session examined issues related to the interconnection of large systems, including discussions of the open system interconnection, the government open systems interconnection profile (GOSIP), the integrated systems digital network (ISDN), local area networks, computer aided logistics support (CALS), and electronic data exchange. The six presentations and panel discussion in the second session focused on issues related to making incompatible applications communicate, or software portability. Individual presentations examined office document architecture and interchange, the distributed office applications model, operating systems standards, database management systems, standards for the evaluation and selection of distributed database applications, and a user's perspective of the standards process. A summary of the closing remarks and a list of attendees conclude the report. (EW)
