Abstract:

The 90s will be the era of Information Management in Computer Processing. Information Management demands the integrity of data and information that we process and handle. As we move into this new age, we are losing the ability to ensure integrity in a distributed processing environment. This is due part to the proliferation of terminals, workstations and the advent of networking as we move from a centralized approach to data processing and data- basing. Integrity is more than security issue. It encompasses accuracy, correctness, and validity of data. Database development, database management systems, networking of terminal and systems, and the distributed environment of software and information compound integrity concerns. Until we recognize that information is our most precious resource, we will ignore the importance of integrity concerns and their impact on the computer world. This paper will address these issues.
