CEO TECHNOLOGY BOOT CAMPS GO GLOBAL; Expand to Far East and Latin America Following Widespread Success in U.S. and Europe; Topics Range From Virtual Reality To Surfing The Internet.

ISLANDIA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 8, 1996--After a number of successful technology boot camps for chief executives in the United States and Europe, Computer Associates and The CEO Institutes announce the first retreats in the Far East and Latin America.

The three-day retreats prepare business executives for the challenges of 21st century technology by providing one-on-one basic computing, lectures by industry experts and seminars on the practical implementation of technology in business.

Now in their fourth year, the retreats have received widespread praise from business leaders around the world. They are designed to expose CEOs to technologies that can immediately benefit their businesses and, by demystifying information technology, foster a clear understanding of technology's effect on the global business environment.

The retreats address the "fundamental disconnect" between CEOs and technologists that CA Chairman Charles B. Wang highlights in TECHNO VISION: The Executive's Survival Guide to Understanding and Managing Information Technology (McGraw-Hill), which is now available in six languages.

At check-in, CEOs are issued a color Pentium powered laptop computer, portable printer, communications software, and a suite of office productivity software, all hooked up to a network. Each CEO is assigned a personal technology advisor. Program topics include:

Surfing The Internet Testing Your IT Quotient Mastering Information Technology: The CEO Perspective The Future Of Virtual Reality

Since the CEO retreats were started in 1992, they have attracted hundreds of top executives from a wide variety of industries.
