Each of the 14 chapters, consisting of papers written by different authors, represents a different perspective existing in organizations with respect to the microcomputer resource. The chapters are organized into six categories: (1) microcomputer technology as a strategic resource; (2) managing microcomputer technology; (3) microcomputer technology and end users; (4) artificial intelligence and microcomputer technology; (5) microcomputer security and protection; and (6) microcomputer education and training.
