No development in industrial history has had as much impact and occurred as quickly as the invention and implementation of the digital computer. The computer has enabled people to perform calculations and manipulate data more quickly than was ever thought possible. This speed has permitted new types of processes and analyses to be made available to business and industry. The ability of computers to execute these tasks has extended man’s capacity in a way that is only matched by the Industrial Revolution which is generally assigned a span of a hundred years, while the computer revolution is barely thirty years of age.
