IBM’s DB2 relational database is sweeping all before it at a faster rate than many industry veterans forecast, and the traditional IBM mainframe software product houses are having to rush to add relational features to their database products. Latest to make the move is Pansophic Systems Inc, which has signed a collaboration agreement with Relational Technology Inc to make the latter’s new MVS version of its Ingres relational database the basis of new Pansophic products. Relational Technology’s MVS/XA version of Ingres runs under IBM’s TSO and CICS, and the agreement gives Pansophic the right to integrate Ingres for MVS and all other operating systems Relational supports, into its products. Pansophic has introduced the PAN/RD dictionary development system using the SQL query language, and will offer a simplified version of Ingres with PAN/RD.
