IBM’s massive upheaval that led to the creation of six new business units a month ago is still not complete, and on Friday the company added a seventh specifically to take responsibility for Systems Applications Architecture. The new business is called Programming Systems, and will be headed by Earl Wheeler, who was previously vice-president for programming and will report to IBM United States chief Terry Lautenbach. The Programming Systems business will have worldwide development responsibility for Systems Applications Architecture, and programming development laboratories in Santa Teresa, California, and Cary, North Carolina, will report to Wheeler, who will also provide functional guidance to IBM’s Toronto laboratory. The company has also furthered its aim of going after large systems implementation contracts that presently tend to go to companies like Electronic Data Systems by creating a new Application Solutions unit under Ned Lautenbach, doing products to help customers apply Systems Applications Architecture. Ned Lautenbach’s unit will come under Edward Lucente’s US Marketing & Services Group and will include a new Systems Integration Division, responsible for both federal and commercial systems integration and space and defence systems for the US government; the vertical market industry units that will now include support of IBM’s network of third parties developing and marketing applications for use on IBM products; the Application Systems Division; and the IBM Information Network remote bureau service unit.
