IBM APPLICATIONS ARCHITECTURE ONLY ON FUTURE COMPUTER MODELS

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM formally announced plans for its vital Systems Applications Architecture for program portability across its major ranges this week – but stated that it would enable users to run a single application only on future offerings of the three major IBM environments – 370, 36 and 38, and the Personal. The announcement was made so quietly that only the New York Times and Agence France Presse of the major news media picked it up. SAA, a set of software interfaces, conventions and protocols, will be published starting this year, with first products implementing it this year. Agence France Presse suggests we will see it on the new Personals due to be annnounced on April 2.
