Abstract:

The policy on the development of defense and security for The Armed Forces of the Republic of Indonesia ABRI envisages the creation of a viable deterrent power through the effective use of all the components of ABRI as a relatively small but effective and efficient nucleus sustained by real national capabilities. It is therefore driving ABRI to realize better use of its resources. A pivotal factor in this goal is the investment in the information technology of the future, today. Within the information architecture, the growing phenomenon of End-User Computing EUC is recognized as a valid technological base for providing end-user support. The idea behind the EUC concept is to help encourage end-users produce information system applications more rapidly, more responsively, and more cost effectively than if these applications were developed by the Data Processing Center. However, EUC also introduces new organizational, managerial, and technical risks by propagating resources that are not easily controlled by traditional means. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the alternatives available to ABRI for developing EUC to match the organizationals goals, objectives, and strategies.
