Bulgaria National Bank buys Australian made software from IR

  • 10 December, 2003 10:29

<p>SYDNEY, December 10, 2003 – Borica (Bank Organisation for Payments Initiated by Cards Ltd.), a fully owned subsidiary of Bulgaria National Bank, has purchased PROGNOSIS, the real-time systems management software from Sydney-based Integrated Research (IR), to manage its national ATM and Point of Sale (POS) network systems.</p>
<p>Borica operates the Bulgarian ATM/POS network using HP NonStop servers and the STEPS application software from Banksys Belgium. As a national card payments operator, Borica services both card issuance and authorisation of card payment operations in the country, and provides those services for the largest Bulgarian banks.</p>
<p>Borica’s head of real-time systems Simeon Chuhovski says that because of the complex nature of the ATM/POS environment, Borica was looking for a product to monitor several systems and application components in parallel.</p>
<p>“We were looking for a user friendly, flexible and configurable product. PROGNOSIS fitted the bill perfectly with its consolidated graphical interface, multi-platform support and the ability to drill-down into systems and application components in real-time to determine the root cause of a problem,” says Chuhovski.</p>
<p>“Because our applications are also very similar to those used by Banksys, and Banksys have standardised on PROGNOSIS to manage its applications, it made sense that we follow suit. Clearly PROGNOSIS leads the field in managing HP NonStop applications for banking and financial transaction environments.”</p>
<p>PROGNOSIS will be used to manage Borica’s HP NonStop S7404 servers running NonStop Kernel G06.14. Nine PROGNOSIS modules made up the sale, including PROGNOSIS Graphical Presentations, Disk Manager, Batch Manager, Pathway Manager, Availability Reporting, Automated Analyst, and the PROGNOSIS Application Development Interface (ADI).</p>
<p>About Integrated Research Ltd: Established in 1988, Integrated Research ( is a publicly listed company (ASX:IRI) with sales and support offices in the USA, Europe and Australia. Integrated Research develops PROGNOSIS cross-platform systems management software for high availability, business-critical environments. PROGNOSIS is available on the Windows, UNIX, Linux and HP NonStop™ platforms.</p>
<p>Whenever you use an ATM, download email, trade stocks, make a phone call, watch cable TV or shop at a large retail outlet, chances are that you’re benefiting from PROGNOSIS. The world's largest bank, telecommunications company, stock exchange, computer hardware manufacturer and Internet service provider all rely on PROGNOSIS, as do blue-chip customers in 47 countries.</p>

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
