IBM TO LICENSE ITS NETWORK MANAGER SOFTWARE TO OTHERS

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM Corp has now decided to license its Network Station Manager Software (CI No 3,118) to rival manufacturers, saying it will unveil details of the first agreements within the next sixty days. The software, which the company has been bundling with its network stations for the last six months, boots and sends applets to Network Computers, enabling them to run on any server. A spokesperson for IBM denied reports which suggested that the company was trying to establish an industry standard saying, we’re not trying to force this on people. Licensing deals will be agreed on an individual basis rather than a set charge. IBM will also announce today the establishment of a new Network Computing Services practice to offer advice to companies looking to buy Network Computers of any brand.
