Faced with an uphill task in the mainframe database market, Cincom Systems Inc has followed arch-competitor Cullinet in looking to another company – in this case Nixdorf – for the technology it needs to attack the distributed processing market, focussing eventually on the IBM 9370. Cincom and Nixdorf have signed a technology exchange agreement under which Cincom hopes to augment its IBM-based Supra database and related products with the distributed features that Nixdorf has implemented in its Reflex Unix relational database management system (CI No 815). Cincom expects that the first fruits of the agreement will be realised in a Unix-based product which will initially benefit Nixdorf and its Unix users. Nixdorf sees the alliance as a major aid in its efforts to establish itself in the US market.
