Abstract : Governmental, business and scientific activities have been placing and will continue to place heavy reliance on data processing equipment and procedures. Because of increasing complexity and speed of equipment and sophistication in procedures, utilization of this powerful tool is highly dependent upon the quality of management of the data processing operation. This paper describes and examines five key elements of successful data processing management -- organization, personnel, documentation, control, and standards.
