UNIFACE UK HEAD RESIGNS

By CBR Staff Writer

Ed Humphries, managing director of applications generation language company Uniface UK Ltd has resigned and a formal announcement concerning the restructuring of the company will be made in due course: the news comes amid industry gossip that the company is losing market share – it has certainly had to share its favoured status with Sybase Inc as the database company moved from its position of selling on Uniface product under the name Fastbuild and instead created its own Open Systems Software programme, which also involves the rival US company Unify Corp; Sybase’s Keith Dixon confirmed that the company had not sold on a lot of Uniface product recently, partly because it was building up its relationship with Unify, although Sybase’s intention was to split application development sales between the two; meanwhile Uniface has been experiencing aggressive, successful competition from Cognos Inc with its Powerhouse product, and Computer Power Pty Ltd with the Today generator from Down Under.
