Abstract [en]

This work presents episodes of first generation information systems development in Sweden using two particular computers, ALWAC IIIE, during the period 1957-1961, and Univac III during 1963-1964. The ALWAC IIIE at ADB Institute, Gothenburg, was used for technical as well as for administrative applications. Another episode concerns re-engineering of an inventory management application; it used the ALWAC IIIE for the Swedish Defence Material Administration in 1960. The next episode concerns the computer Univac III. A sales contract between Gotaverken AB and Univac included a guarantee by Univac to transfer one of Gotaverken's punched card routines to a magnetic tape oriented routine on Univac III. The development work was carried out on a Univac III at Kantonalbank in Bern, Switzerland. They did the work in night shifts during a period of five months. Only one Univac III was installed in Sweden.
