Description

A group of ADAPSO members discuss the relations IBM had with the software industry starting in the mid-1960s and how IBM assumed a dominant position. They talk about the ambivalence of IBM toward ADAPSO and the impact that the anti-trust trial, unbundling and several suits against them had on the way IBM did business. They discussed the various position papers created to document ADAPSO’s position about problems with IBM’s policies. They summarize by identifying the positive impact that IBM had on the industry.
