ROOT’s TRANSACTION CONTROL SYSTEM FOR UNIX IS LAUNCHED

By CBR Staff Writer

Root Business Systems yesterday duly launched the IBM mainframe to Unix applications migration product previewed last month, and, as assumed (CI No 656), it is derived from the work done to convert Hoskyns’ IBM mainframe-based Modular Applications Software to a Unix environment. The Transaction Environment Control System Under Unix, Unitecs, emulates the facilities of an IBM CICS Translation Processing Monitor. This work has now been bundled together and allows development work to be done on Unix systems and then returned to the IBM mainframe – leading to savings of up to 40% against doing it on the mainframe, claims Root. The source code for Unitecs is available for UKP400,000 from Root and user licenses, depending on the processor, will cost between UKP2,000 and UKP10,000 a year.
