Under the terms of the UKP30m contract announced earlier this week (CI No 936), Nixdorf Computers UK will provide the Nationwide Anglia Building Society with a information system, covering the whole of the UK. This will be achieved by providing each of the building societies’ 800 branches with MS-DOS workstations: branches can then link up – via a Nixdorf communications server unit – with the Nationwide’s Unisys 1100 mainframes in Swindon, and the Anglia’s Wellingborough-based ICL Series 39s. Each micro will contain 2Mb of internal memory and 40Mb of disk storage, and comes complete with high resolution colour screen. Company chiefs estimate that the network will be in place by December 1989.
