Siemens Nixdorf hopes to revitalise its software business with a new version of its ALX Comet application system aimed at small and medium sized enterprises.
The company has rejigged its software, basing it on Microsoft technology and tools. It will now run on Windows NT and Win 95 clients as well as NT and Unix servers.
Dr Peter Page, head of the application software division at SNI, said: ?We hope the switch to a commonly accepted platform like Microsoft will revitalise our partner network.? He said that SNI will offer industry specific solutions on the platform but that he hoped to generate a network of partners that would add value to the system by building a wider variety of vertical market solutions.
The new version of ALX Cornet, based on the the company?s Community architecture, provides a graphical user interface and is implemented in components which can be configured to customers? needs.
Functionality offered by the software includes financial accounting, asset management, sales planning, production planning, document management and archiving, electronic data interchange (EDI) and personnel management.
The system will appear at this year?s Cebit in March. SNI also announced a catalogue of software components for its year old Microsoft compliant Community software architecture. It contains a collection of pre-fabricated components which can be used within application systems to provide functionality like document management and archiving, electronic communications and workflow processing on a variety of platforms including mainframes and Unix and NT servers.
