NOW SIEMENS SEEKS TO MOVE NIXDORF 8890 BASE TO BS2000

By CBR Staff Writer

Siemens-Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG has thought better of its plan to throw its 8890 IBMulator users to the wolves of the open systems world by trying to persuade them to migrate to Unix – at which point many might well say yes, OK, but we’ll go to competitive tender. It is now hoping to persuade what is still a significant base to move instead to Siemens’ proprietary BS2000 mainframe operating system and has two migration products for the 7.000 C40, H60 and H90 models, the VM/2000-E operating environment – first on the C40, early next year for the H60 and H90, with a pilot NiDOS/TCP teleprocessing monitor to be ready by the end of this year.
