Description

Five of the National CSS principals participated in a recorded telephone conference call with a moderator addressing the history of the company's use of RAMIS and development of NOMAD. The licensing of RAMIS from Mathematica and the reasons for building their own product are discussed as well as the marketing of RAMIS for developing applications and then the ongoing revenue from using these applications. The development of NOMAD is discussed in detail along with its initial introduction into the marketplace as a new offering not as a migration from RAMIS. The later history of NOMAD is reviewed, including the failure to build a successor product and the inability to construct a viable PC version of NOMAD.
