Abstract : A synthesis of predicted Automatic Data Processing (ADP) developments in terms of their relationships to the total management of an organization, directed primarily to managers faced with a growing demand for better ADP utilization. ADP equipment capabilities likely to be available during the next decade are outlined in detail. Current techniques for the use of ADP systems and problems involved in installing improved future applications are discussed. A timetable is shown predicting the general acceptance and use of applications leading to maximum economical computer utilization. The ADP displaced worker situation is portrayed and actions for its alleviation are suggested. Statistics covering situations where ADP actually displaced workers are shown in graphic form. Managerial approaches to coping with systems integration, personnel training, and organizational structure evolving from an ADP influenced society are presented.
