Abstract Marvin Kornbluh Industry today is looking for creative systems analysts and programmers who can develop physical systems on the basis of sound business judgement rather than merely increasing the level of sophistication. They need “entrepeneurs” - those who know how to work effectively with hardware and software suppliers, know how to harness and direct the creative systems people, know how to be communications catalysts in giving advice and counsel to systems users, and know how to establish and maintain sensible budgets and project control systems. How these types of EDP personnel can be developed by the application of sound management principles to the establishment of “custom-built” educational and training programs that emphasize both the operations of the organization as well as the technical aspects of data processing will be discussed. William McCartin The nature of computer technology in a manufacturing environment and the resulting demand for extensive computer education and professional knowledge will be outlined. A company's response to this demand as it was influenced by technical and budgetary considerations is described. The current and future educational requirements necessary to successful implementation of computerized industrial applications, manufacturing process control, and factory automation is considered. Richard G. Schneider Computer-related careers in banking will be discussed. Personnel are needed who can specialize in such areas as computer operations efficiency, hardware performance measurement, systems software support and development, the use of management science techniques, data base development and systems support, and application systems development in programming. They must understand the technical aspects of their fields and communicate effectively to their technical and corporate management, with coordination of all the efforts involved in a large scale, 24 hour, 7 day week operation.
