Well, in regards to L2 CA support et al, I dont think any of them had
IDMS experience at user sites in the first place. I've heard one of
their managers comment that it's impossible to find local BAL expertise.
I doubt that they'll find it in India either. CA's management, and
Cullinet for that, reasoning has always escaped me, but I think it may
be safe to say that the IDMS folks do not drive CA corporate management
decisions in Islandia.

TaskMaster? I haven't heard anyone talk about TaskMaster in 28 years.
You must be really really old (like me)!

That's not exactly true about coming from the user community.

I, for one, started in IDMS as a user, with IDMS CAMP. There was no DC,
we
used TaskMaster (I think that was what it was called). I then moved to
another user site where, after an extensive analysis of DBMSs available
(about 23 if I remember right), we selected IDMS, and none of the IBM
products made it to the top 3. Through all of this I was an application
programmer, DBA, DCA and bug fixer. Yes, I fixed some bugs and then told
support how I fixed it. I worked with all aspects of the IDMS products
as a
client BEFORE I ever became a Cullinet employee. That is probably why I
worked in both DB and DC Level 1 before advancing to DB Level 2 where I
still work on DB and occasionally some DC related issues, though
concentrate
more on SQL issues right now.

I don't know if anyone else in the group came from the user community,
but
I, for one, did.

I remember using Interact. That used to be Wilbur I think. One of their support people became a big wig in IDMS.
I liked using interact, not that different from ISPF, if I remember right, but it's been a long time ago. On the other hand, TSIS was inhouse written, and I always found it a lot more intuitive then Infoplex.
