DEVELOPMENTS FOR FUTURE DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING SYSTEMS

Present distributed computing, as discussed in the prior chapters, provides identifiable advantages for meeting business user needs. Currently, the many advantages of dispersed data processing include computer power located where it is needed, the ability of prolonging mainframe life and investment, utilization of easy-to-learn languages for local and regional processing, balanced loading of processing tasks on host computers as well as local and regional processors, network communications capabilities, use and selection of versatile applications at the appropriate processing level, reduction of data entry errors, and the employment of unskilled personnel at the local and regional processing levels. Overall, distributed processing systems that give the user the ability to install low-cost computers at remote points and connect them to a host computer via communication networks in a distributed processing environment is having a considerable impact on current information processing.

By no means do present systems represent the end state of distributed com-
