PRAXIS GOES BACK TO ITS OLD NAME AND ITS MAINFRAME ROOTS

By CBR Staff Writer

Praxis International Inc has decided to re-adopt its original name, Computer Corporation of America in a move to promote and show its commitment to its mainframe business. The original name of the Waltham, Massachusetts-based company was dropped in 1992 after analysts predicted that the mainframe business was dying and it was time to identify with newer technology and systems. The same year saw an expansion of business interests following the acquisition of database products for Digital Equipment Corp’s computers. However, as the mainframe holds its own and people begin to see it as a big server, the company has said that its customers want to see a commitment to the mainframe system if they are to remain faithful to the company. Founded in 1965, the company that employs 110 people has concentrated on high-capacity database products for IBM Corp mainframe systems. Praxis International has been spun off into a separate company that will deal with the data replication line of the company’s business. Computer Corporation of America’s director of marketing, Chris Ramsdale, said that the company’s aim is to develop and maintain long-standing relationships with customers by supporting high performance, open access to critical business information.
