…AS IBM FORMS NEW ALLIANCE WITH MICRO FOCUS ON CICS

By CBR Staff Writer

Meantime the IBM Corp-Micro Focus Plc alliance gets ever closer, and now IBM’s Networking Software Division, which embraces the Hursley Laboratory just outside Winchester, and the Newbury, Berkshire company have a new agreement under which Micro Focus gets rights to integrate IBM CICS AIX and OS/2 technology into its application development environments for Cobol and PL/I. IBM will provide CICS production systems and Micro Focus will provide development tools for both IBM and alien systems that run the new Unix version of CICS – initially Hewlett-Packard Co’s HP-UX Unix machines. The planned systems will offer a high degree of portability. Micro Focus Cobol for AIX now supports IBM’s DB2/6000 database.
