Abstract

INTERVIEWEE PROFILE: Stephen F. Crane has worked with UNISYS (Burroughs) mainframe computer software since the early 1970’s, specializing in Burroughs’ Data Management System II (DMSII). Working for the state of Michigan from 1972 to 1977, he helped pioneer the use of DMSII at the Department of State Police and later, working for the Department of Transportation, he joined a statewide task force to evaluate the use of “structured” methodologies for programming, database design, and systems design. He also spent three years as Director of Education for MIS, International, Inc., For the past ten years, Crane has acted (and, he freely admits, occasionally overacted) as Database Administrator for Koch Industries, Inc., a petroleum company headquartered in Wichita, Kansas. Koch is the second largest closely held company in the country and had revenues of $16 billion in 1987—the last year the company released a figure. Koch uses DMSII extensively, having two large UNISYS A Series mainframes and a large network of PC’s.
