Unisys, DataFocus Partner to Integrate the Use of Unix

Unisys Corp. (Blue Bell, Pa., www.unisys.com) and DataFocus Inc. (Fairfax, Va., www.datafocus.com) announced a partnership to promote the use of Unix applications on Windows NT for federal customers. Under terms of the agreement, DataFocus’ NuTCRACKER will be included in the Unisys Microsoft Center of Excellence. In turn, Unisys is also participating in DataFocus’ NuTCRACKER Solution Partner Program.

"The Unisys Center of Excellence and NuTCRACKER will ensure Federal customers have access to enterprise-level Windows NT solutions that leverage their enormous investments in UNIX applications and expertise, " said Pat Higbie, chairman and CEO, DataFocus. "Additionally, with Unisys' participation in our NuTCRACKER Solution Partner Program, both companies will be able to work in concert to assist Federal customers with their UNIX and Windows NT interoperability and compatibility requirements. "

Unisys Microsoft Center of Excellence is a laboratory and showcase for Unisys NT Enterprise technology and a variety of other solutions. The facility is equipped with capabilities to support the development and display of technology solutions offered by Unisys and its partners, including the NuTCRACKER product line.

NuTCRACKER is a solution for evolving applications to incorporate the latest Windows technologies. Currently within the Federal Government there are thousands of mission-critical applications on Unix, but as the benefits of Windows NT are recognized, the need increases for compatibility. NuTCRACKER enables these mission-critical Unix software solutions to be deployed quickly and reliably on Windows NT-based systems. Knowledge worker productivity is improved because mission-critical applications can be integrated with Windows productivity applications. – Thomas Sullivan, Staff Reporter/Reviews Editor
