Systems integration--the enterprise-wide integration of computer applications--offers an enormous opportunity for U.S. firms to capitalize on their strengths in such areas as complex software, networking, and management. In this book, industry leaders, university researchers, and government policymakers discuss what systems integration is, its importance and prospects for growth, why it is expected to define the characteristics of computerization for decades to come, and why the United States is perceived to have a strong competitive advantage.
