No new product offering has had greater impact on the computer industry than the IBM System/360. IBM's 360 and Early 370 Systems describes the creation of this remarkable system and the developments it spawned, including its successor, System/370. The authors tell how System/360's widely-copied architecture came into being and how IBM failed in an effort to replace it ten years later with a bold development effort called FS, the Future System. Along the way they detail the development of many… 
IBM system 360/370/390 series
TLDR
The IBM System/360 and System/370 comprise an architecture that has been the basis for all intermediate and large mainframe (q.v.) processors produced by IBM since 1964 and has also become the base for machines produced by other manufacturers.
Early Language and Compiler Developments at IBM Europe: A Personal Retrospection

    IEEE Annals of the History of Computing
  • 2013
TLDR
This retrospective concentrates on two languages, Algol 60 and PL/I, because with them compiler development reached an historical peak within IBM's European laboratories, and the author's experience and the responsibility of the different laboratories are considered.
History of Operating Systems
TLDR
This chapter presents a short history of operating systems including the IBM OS/360, which was the operating system for the IBM System/360 family of computers, and a short discussion on Android and iOS, which are popular operating systems for mobile devices.
Product strategy choices – Honeywell and RCA mainframe computer product strategies 1963–71
TLDR
This paper looks at two companies which directly targeted IBM's customer base, Honeywell and RCA, and highlights that, while the concentrically diversified nature of RCA provided it with the ability to develop computers, RCA's investment decisions were based on internal resource allocation logic, not a market-driven logic.
'Prestige luster' and 'snow-balling effects': IBM's development of computer time-sharing
TLDR
IBM's role in and response to the development of time-sharing is examined, which illustrates the nontechnological criteria that even high-technology companies use to decide what products to develop and market.
IBM Boeblingen's early software contributions

  • 2004
TLDR
Three examples from an IBM development laboratory illustrate the basic issues and directions of industrial software development and show the steps taken to address these early problems.
IBM and its Imitators: Organizational Capabilities and the Emergence of the International Computer Industry
In this paper I will examine the utility of the theory of organiza tional capabilities and evolutionary economic change, as conceptualized by Richard Nelson and Sidney Winter, for explaining the
From scientific instrument to everyday appliance: The emergence of personal computers, 1970–77
Summary In a technology whose history seems always to be characterized by a series of “revolutions,” the invention of the personal computer in the mid‐1970s seems the greatest of all. This paper
Organizing the Electronic Century
This paper's title is an echo of Alfred Chandler's (2001) chronicle of the electronics industry, Inventing the Electronic Century. The paper attempts (A) a general reinterpretation of the pattern of
An investigation into computer and network curricula
TLDR
This thesis consists of a series of published, peer reviewed, and conference research papers that analyse the educational and training needs of undergraduate Information Technology students within the area of Computer and Network Technology (CNT) Education.
