McDonnell Douglas Computer Systems Co, the Santa Ana, California company in the process of becoming a UK-registered public limited company quoted in London, has a new Pick implementation for IBM MVS mainframes. R/370-MVS runs under MVS Time Sharing Option and enables Reality and Pick applications to run on the host while maintaining the integrity of MVS. Time Sharing Option, which is designed for development and for interactive applications that require ad-hoc data manipulation, making it, claims McDonnell, the most ideal environment for Reality and Pick applications, which are designed to maximise relational data base management concepts and real-time interactive processing. R/370-MVS is designed as a functional Reality and Pick environment and maintains MVS operating system integrity by using industry standard sort routines, and IBM’s VSAM as its file structure, JES for its spooling and printing, and ISPF and its full screen editor. An early customer is Dallas-based PetroData Business Systems, which has completed installation of its Reality-based Oil & Gas Trust Accounting and Management software on a major Texas bank’s IBM mainframe. McDonnell Douglas is offering the technology to US resellers operating in vertical markets where IBM mainframes are commonly used.
