If you want to be a live wire in the high volume transaction processing business these days, you can’t afford not to have IBM communications on your machine, and so Rabbit Software Corp, Malvern, Pensylvania is sitt-ing pretty. The company’s latest success is an OEM technology access programme agreement with Sequent Computer Systems Inc, Beaverton, Oregon, which will take Rabbit’s IBM data communications software for use on its Balance and Symmetry Unix multiprocessors. Under the terms of the agreement, Sequent will take six communications products from Rabbit’s SNA base and advanced software product. Rabbit started its Technology Access or TAP programme to enable customers like Sequent to work jointly, as business partners, with Rabbit personnel to develop finished connectivity products. The TAP program provides full access to Rabbit’s marketing and technical knowledge of IBM connectivity architecture as well as access to hardware and software developed by Rabbit to implement that architecture. It also provides for management, development and execution of the joint solution. Others on TAP to Rabbit include IBM itself, and NEC, SCI Systems, Siemens and Tolerant Systems.
