Advantage CA-IDMS for BS2000
Product Announcement

June 13, 2006

Dear Valued Customer:

CA is continually working to improve our software and services to best meet the needs of our customers. To effectively support the latest computing environments and those of the future, we continually evaluate our products to determine their strategic direction. To focus our development and support efforts on our most strategic business tools we have decided we will functionally stabilize the Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database product family ( formerly known as CA-IDMS) for the BS2000/OSD operating system at release 16.

This means the Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database product family for the BS2000/OSD operating system will not be enhanced beyond r16. Maintenance and support for the Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database r16 product family for the BS2000/OSD operating system, however, will continue and be consistent with Fujitsu Siemens Computers plans for the operating system. Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database r16 is supported today for release 6.0A of BS2000/OSD. Support for future releases of BS2000/OSD will be determined on a case by case basis pending certification test results. When the Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database r15 product family goes out of support, you will have the opportunity to license Extended Support for r15, if necessary.

The Advantage CA-IDMS/DB Database product family for the BS2000/OSD operating system contains the following products:
