REVERSE TAKEOVER: NCR BEGINS TO DIGEST THE DEMORALISED AT&T COMPUTER SYSTEMS

By CBR Staff Writer

NCR Corp started reorganising last week to accommodate its acquisition, however unlooked for, of AT&T Computer Systems. Its first move was to create the NCR Network Products Group, to be managed by its first recruit out of AT&T, Bill O’Shea, currently AT&T’s vice-president of systems marketing and development. O’Shea, one of the leaders of the product transition team that recently decided to scrub the majority of AT&T’s product line in favour of NCR’s gear, will be part of NCR’s executive committee. Concurrently, NCR split its General Purpose Product Group in two, creating the Large Computer Products Division, responsible for the 3600 and 3700 parallel machines, the Teradata Corp joint development project, the controversial Top End transaction processing monitor, databases and the company’s proprietary I and V systems, plus the Midrange Computer Products Division, handling the 3400 and 3500 multiprocessors, the Unix operating system and manufacturing. AT&T’s System 7000, StarServers and 3B systems will report to the Midrange Division via the AT&T Computer Systems Facility in Naperville, Illinois. O’Shea, whose appointment becomes effective August 1, will preside over NCR’s network software services and Open Systems Interconnection application in San Diego, California; communications processors in St Paul, Minnesota; wireless communications products in Utrecht, Holland; StarGroup communications software, internetworking hardware and software, and systems and network management software in Lincroft, New Jersey and systems and network support in Columbia, South Caroli na. NCR has put Bill Eisenman, who was vice-president of its Multi-User Products Division, in charge of the Large Computer Products Divis ion. Tom Tang, vice-president of the company’s Network Products Division, has been given responsibility for the new Midrange Division.
