Abstract [en]

The witness seminar “Teknisk utveckling i bankerna fram till 1985” [Technical Development in the Swedish Banking Industry before 1985] was held at Tekniska museet [the National Museum of Science and Technology] in Stockholm on November 12, 2007 and was led by Thomas Glück. Focus of the seminar was the development of information technology in Swedish banks, starting with the first use of electronic computers in the late 1950s and the 1960s. The seminar covered aspects dealing with technical issues, hardware issues and system and software issues. Different technical systems and products were discussed. IBM played an important role as a major supplier but beside other international players there were also some Swedish initiatives in the early years. The use of methods and methodological questions were discussed. In the first years everything was built from scratch, including operating systems, terminal interfaces and so on. The use of methods, at least documented methods, were sparse in the pioneering years. As the use of computers increased and the systems themselves grew larger, standards began to emerge and there was a number of infrastructure issues and the establishment of common platforms. Good examples of the development are the electronic bank clearing system as well as the two giro systems, Postgirot and Bankgirot. As the systems grew larger, the need for more formalized methods and documentation increased.
