Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Every office using computers has become accustomed to change. Rapid development of new technologies, applications, and functions of computerization has produced organizational and procedural shifts in administrative computing activities at most colleges and universities. The lowering costs and increasing power of microcomputers are causing the decentralization of campus computer resources. Several trends have forced institutions to reexamine their academic administrative computing services. Computer networking, advanced message systems, expanding on-line application application systems, integration of voice and data technology, use of ''smart cards", and optical disk storage are examples of the technology available to colleges today. Integration of campus resources that use new technologies is a sound business policy because of the potential for waste and duplication if acquired separately.
