While numerous articles have recognized the importance of organizational planning and technology planning, and the need to link the two processes, they have consistently treated each new technology as a culturally-and structurally-independent productivity-enhancing innova-tion.

Firms therefore need to take a more holistic approach to planning and implementation when considering the use of Client/Server and other change-enabling technologies.
