NEW YORK - Jan. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- Information Technology, more commonly known as IT, has come to dominate the way we do business and interact. IT development has largely been dominated by the West. But it may not have always been so.

The Cold War for Information Technology tells the remarkable true story of a little-known battle for control over IT development that took place at the end of the 20th century. Competitors from the United States, Soviet Union, India, and China all played major roles. But it was an IT company from Yugoslavia called Iskra Delta that wound up right in the middle of this epic battle to control IT. Despite its small size, Iskra Delta won permission from the U.S. to work through the American embargo that prohibited exporting information technology to the East. Being at a so-called digital crossroads for the East and West, gave the small company a massive influence. By 1986, the tiny firm had built one of the largest computer networks in the world for the Chinese police.

But Iskra Delta’s innovations also drew it into the crosshairs of such international intelligence agencies as the CIA and KGB. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the international intrigue facing the computer geeks of the past generation from someone who was there.
