SIEMENS NIXDORF RALLIES SOFTWARE VENDORS FOR ITS RM SYSTEMS AND KNOCKS AT MAGIC SOFTWARE’S DOOR

By CBR Staff Writer

Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG continues to round up software to run on its famed RM family of Unix systems. According to Ulrich Riepl, who heads the company’s relations with independent software vendors, the search for innovative companies has ended most recently at the doors of Israel’s Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. The aim of the agreement is to migrate the Magic 5.7 Rapid Application Development tool to Siemens Nixdorf Sinix. It already runs under MS-DOS, Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, Data General Corp’s Unix, Digital Equipment Corp Unix and VAX machines. Siemens Nixdorf, Riepl said, has shifted its focus to picking up programs and developers along the way to enhance its RM line because time is short and it is easier than going at it alone. Besides, he added, despite being at the other end of the spectrum from C++, Magic is aimed at professional developers. Siemens Nixdorf was also sold on its high degree of interoperability and scalability. Work on the product has just concluded and the average cost per user is $3,500.
