Non-IBM-compatible mainframe manufacturers are forever casting around for applications to make their machines more attractive, and Unisys Corp has struck a deal with Computer Associates International Inc, Garden City, New York, to alleviate the problem. Under the agreement Unisys will implement a worldwide programme to market a string of Computer Associates software products on its machines, with the latter Computer Associates licensing its products direct to Unisys end users, and continuing to provide them with all associated product support, documentation and maintenance contracts. The Visual Information Software – CA-Disspla System presentation, productivity and engineering options will run on Unisys 1100 Series, 2200 Series, and Systems 10 and 11 – whatever those two are: the unnannounced successors to the 1100/90 maybe. The Masterpiece Financial Series accounting, personnel and payroll programs will be offered on these machines plus the System 80 models 6, 8, 10 and 20. Data Center Resource Management Software and CA-DB4 relational database and CA-DB4 Screens will be offered on all OS/1100 machines.
