Openvms, R.i.p. 1977-2020?

It runs mission-critical systems and because of its consistent performance it tends to get little attention, except from a dedicated user community. One consultant, who didn't want to be identified for fear of jeopardizing existing relationships, said porting OpenVMS systems to another platform will entail much work. The OpenVMS operating system provides a lot of the capabilities that other operating systems either don't have, or don't do in a similar enough manner, said the consultant. "You typically end up re-architecting the whole thing, which can take several years for a large and complex set of applications." End-of-life decisions are likely to trigger push-back from users, consultants and anyone involved in support and operations. HP's decision to end support for the HP 3000 more than a decade ago caused quite a stir and prompted users to organize an effort to keep the system operational. Stephen De Dalto, OpenVMS consultant, said: "It's been a slow, but definite, migration from VMS, because customers have to continue to justify the OS since the higher-ups keep saying, 'Move to Linux or Windows or Unix,' without knowing the consequences of such a move." De Dalto said he was shocked by HP's decision because he would have expected HP to continue to 3G bonded networks UK develop and move to the latest Itanium chips. "It's a bad decision, because not moving forward to the latest and greatest is the same as moving backwards -- and no one wants to move backwards," said De Dalto.

United Vacations launches VAX system for UK

United Vacations launches VAX system for UK By Travolution Comments United Airlines holiday brand United Vacations has launched its first UK trade-only website in a move to give travel agents control over bookings and commission levels. The site and known as Vax Vacation Access will allow agents to book flights, accommodation, car hire and sightseeing tours across North America. It has been developed by US technology firm Trisept Solutions , a sister company of United Vacations that powers a string of major tour operator engines for the US. Targeting the trade in the UK will give United Vacations an in-road into the busy North American market and allow agents to tap into the companys so-called virtual brochures and its range of flight schedules to London Heathrow with BMI . United Vacations VAX is way ahead of the old Viewdata systems, still used by mass-market operators, the company said. Among its innovations, VAX empowers agents to set (and modify) their commission levels. They can vary both the total selling price and their own percentage, giving them that vital edge over their competitors. The VAX system will also include a multi-booking and dynamic packaging function across its portfolio of 200 North American destinations, alongside the Ski Freedom adventure holiday package deals.
