Abstract

Abstract In their move toward modernization, the countries of South Asia have realized the potential of computer power. However, this computerization movement is hindered by a shortage of trained computer personnel and a lack of planning for the development of computing resources. Prohibitive costs have led many countries to set up or encourage local manufacturing capability and to produce their own software. Despite these problems, the future is not bleak. Although South Asia is unlikely to catch the West, the proliferation of computers and computer personnel will continue apace.
