In what Hewlett-Packard Co says is a move to offer customers a more cohesive hardware and software integration strategy, it has launched HP Open IT. The concept, which is similar to ICL Plc’s Openframework architecture, is designed to provide Unix users with a set of specific guidelines on application development, graphical user interfaces, front end information systems and systems management. The key common services underpinning it are Hewlett’s network management system, OpenView; SoftBench, the firm’s software engineering framework; and Motif. Hewlett-Packard says Open IT is applicable to any Unix environment – and will publish application programming interface reference guides, documentation on transaction processing specifications and preferred suppliers of integration technologies as well as information on industry standards like X/Open’s Co Ltd’s Portability Guide, the Open Software Foundation’s introduction to its Distributed Computing Environment and OSF/Motif, and the Codd & Date SQL Portability Guide.
