For the first time ever, the peerless IBM Dictionary of Computing - a one-of-a-kind desk reference that's unmatched in its field - is being made available to the general public. Prepared by the world's largest supplier of computers, the Dictionary defines 18,000 terms and abbreviations covering virtually all personal computing, information processing, telecommunications, office systems, and IBM-specific terms. It includes the most up-to-date terms and definitions from the full range of IBM-compatible hardware and software products; the American National Standard Dictionary for Information Systems, ANSI X3.172-1990; the ANSI/EIA Standard - 440-A, Fiber Optic Terminology; and the Information Technology Vocabulary, developed by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC)." "No other dictionary of computing terms even comes close to the breadth of this one, nor is there anything available from such an authoritative source. Designed to be used by everyone from the novice seeking the most basic information ... to the mainframe systems programmer and MIS chief looking for sophisticated and hard-to-find information that's not available in most reference books, the IBM Dictionary of Computing contains new and revised entries on: fundamental terms, programming, personal computing, data communication, multimedia, processing units, peripheral equipment, databases, system development, text processing, computer-integrated manufacturing, local area networks, open systems interconnection, fiber optics, distributed data processing, office automation, and artificial intelligence." "It's all here in one indispensable reference source - 18,000 terms and abbreviations concerning all areas and all levels of computing, along with numerous illustrations and diagrams designed to make more complex information easier to understand and assimilate. Whether you're a technician, a systems analyst or programmer, a computer salesperson, or just an enthusiast, you'll find every term, abbreviation, definition, and explanation you'll ever need in the IBM Dictionary of Computing."--Jacket."@en ;
