While creating a catalog of past IUA/EIUA Workshop presentations I stumbled across the gem from IUA 2006. It was authored, and presented, by no less than Charles Bachman himself. This is an insight into the origins of IDMS that is too good not to remind people that it is sitting out here in the IUA/EIUA Community document content area!
Just one example of the wealth of information that is available at CA Communities! Enjoy - cheers - GaryC

Charles talked about his personal background, with a focus on the development of what is now called IDMS (Integrated Database Management System).
