SYSTEM INTEGRATORS JOINS THE RUSH TO STANDARDS FOR ITS NEWSPAPER SYSTEMS

By CBR Staff Writer

System Integrators Inc, the supplier of computer-aided publishing systems for the newspaper industry, well known in what used to be Fleet Street for its contribution to the technology revolution that has rocked the national press, is only the latest in a string of specialist companies that are abandoning their proprietary hardware for industry standards. The company said last week that it was redefining its long-term product and marketing strategies to reimplement its applications under widely-used operating systems and hardware, and demonstrated its AdMaker software on the Compaq 386 at the Seybold Conference in San Francisco where previously the advertisement page make-up software ran only on its proprietary hardware systems. The company says that its next-generation products will add enhanced graphics, design and page-layout capabilities to its Tandem Computers-based System/25 and System/55 editorial and classified advertising systems – but it will continue to offer its family of Coyote editing workstations. System Integrators says that the newspaper publishing industry is now demanding products based on standards like IBM, Apple+DEC or Unix-based systems. To meet this demand, we’ve shifted our future product development efforts away from the proprietary to the standard, the company says, adding that the new products will be introduced as extensions to its traditional systems that are based on standard Tandem hardware and software so that users will not be left behind or have to convert. System Integrators claims the System/25 and /55 are nwo in use by more than 200 publications and wire services worldwide.
