Mainframe packaged software marketing company Ashisuto Co has decided to follow the trend and start selling packages for low end systems, starting with Oracle Corp’s Oracle, which has just been translated into Japanese for the Sun Microsystems Inc workstation family, with a version for Toshiba Corp’s top-end laptop, the J3100, on the way; it also plans to convert other mainframe packages such as Focus and Pro IV to run in Japanese on workstations and personal computers, and has created a new division to handle the new business, with some 80 young people with three years or so experience with Ashisuto; the company expects its revenue for the current financial year to March to be around $62m, and by 1991, it hopes the revenue from small system sales will match that from large system software which it puts at $140m or so.
