AndyUs papers make Object-oriented programming less spooky and threatening.
His papers make sense of the goals of object-oriented programming: strict
isolation of data elements and related code within boundaries,
partitioning of problems into less complex subproblems, independence of
one module from another (with controlled communications between),
interchangeability of one implementation with any other which supports
the same functionality, continuity of real-world concepts through analysis
SallyUs paper addresses the many issues being faced today by individuals
in business responsible for setting information technology directions and
strategies. Her paper reviews areas of SAS software usage in business,
outlines some of the challenges faced by business today and suggests
some approaches to evaluating current IT capabilities.
