Abstract

Effective management of information system technologies in the 1990s will be a combination of information system and management training, detailed planning and organization, and understanding the technical and human needs of the corporation. Managing change is becoming a way of life in modern organizations, and the strategies for implementing information systems have changed significantly over time. Desktop publishing uses a microcomputer system to generate documents comparable to those produced by a professional printer, and presents numerous management challenges. Operational concerns include the high cost of hardware and software, as well as training and staffing requirements. By establishing standards, an organization is able to address many of the operational concerns. The assignment of budgetary control and the development of guidelines for the use of desktop publishing help to bring the management of desktop publishing under control.
