Investors In Industry Plc, 3i, the venture capital company owned by the major UK clearing banks, has completed the second phase of its computer hardware purchasing with a contract to Convergent Technology vendor TIS Systems worth UKP500,000. The contract is for advanced networking to link the existing 30 Convergent Technologies machines based in 3i’s offices around the country, to upgrade the current hardware to allow subsequent database development and the introduction of desktop publishing, and the installation of a 64-user S/640. This contract brings 3i’s total investment in Unix-based hardware to UKP2.5m. Previously 3i’s contract for the Convergent Technology hardware had been with Star Computer Group, but TIS now takes the responsibility for the supply and maintenance of the complete 3i network.
