New Uses for Old Technology

by @ 4:28 pm. Filed under Technology

An article in the Business Section of Sunday’s New York Times explained that the IBM mainframe computer is thriving these days, despite predictions of its demise a decade ago. A number of institutional users, particularly banks and other financial institutions, have always appreciated the simplicity, reliability and security of the mainframe, so IBM has re-engineered the operating system to allow it to work in a modern, internet environment. While the mainframe won’t soon be relegating PCs and Windows Servers to the technological scrap heap, it has preserved its place in the 21st century. It’s a good thing we held onto our Wang VS computer. Someday it might have a use other than as a museum exhibit.
