    Computer graphics moves into the business world



    Computer graphics has become an everyday tool for an engineer, scientist, and technician. Only within the last year or so has the business community demonstrated a real interest in computer graphics for their requirements. While the technically trained person had no difficulty accepting that a picture was worth a thousand words, the businessman often didn’t trust pictures and felt more confident with his tabular data. Many of these attitudes are changing with the introduction of both hardware and software oriented towards business requirements. This panel will discuss a number of topics relating to computer graphics and business, hardware, software, system, and user attitudes.
