WALKER PICKS UP ITS FIRST UK DB2 SITE

By CBR Staff Writer

Walker International has been awarded a UKP500,000 contract for its integrated general ledger and purchase ledger software for DB2. It is Walker’s first DB2 site in the UK, and the systems are to be installed on an IBM 3090 under a facilities management contract with ITnet Ltd, Cadbury-Schweppes’ computer services subsidiary (CI No 1,231). Premier Brands also has its roots in the Cadbury-Schweppes empire since it was formed in a management buyout of Cadbury-Schweppes’ food and drinks businesses in the UK, Eire, and France. The company was subsequently sold to Hillsdown Holdings, and now operates via five subsidiaries, including Premier Systems which offers information technology services both commercially and internally. Premier has selected Walker’s management, budgeting, accounting with general ledger and accounts payable packages, and they will be used to prepare the company’s budgets for 1991. Premier says it chose the 3090 DB2 route, although there was a community within the company that advocated an AS/400-based system. However, it was considered more cost-effective to share a mainframe package that allowed the transfer of information from the manufacturing systems on Premier’s existing AS/400 machines.
