We’re confident that today’s press release about VMS Software Inc. becoming the exclusive developer of future versions of the OpenVMS operating system will be met with praise and relief in many companies around the world. IT organizations love new technology and rely on dependable systems — but they hate uncertainty. The existence of VMS Software Inc. addresses all three of those concerns. You can be sure they will find a market.
But what would it take for VMS Software (VS) to attract new OpenVMS users or at least grow in the organizations where it is already used? Here are a few ideas:
- Build on the strengths of OpenVMS: Unparalleled reliability, security
- Communicate their commitment to the future: OpenVMS on Paulson, x86 and beyond
- Place ease of use and productivity at the heart of their business: Modernizing the development process is key
At eCube, we are looking forward to participating and helping with each of these. Our work with NXTware Remote and Continuous Integration place OpenVMS development on par with any other platform – and bit more fun and flexible too.
