Y'all might?have more info on this but. . .Seriously???

At 950 companies out of 1,000???? (would anyone here be able to confirm

""Bernie Spang, director of data servers at IBM, added that the database
remains vigorous despite its age. It still runs in the back rooms of
over 95 percent of Fortune 1,000 companies, and, Spang claimed, 80
percent of large retail banks in the United States, Germany and Japan.""

If we had it at any of the companies that I have worked at since the
eighties, I was unaware.?
