TENET was the only company that succeeded in building and selling a mid-to-large-scale, general-purpose time-sharing product. TENET was more about advancing the business of time-sharing than about computer science, computer architecture, and invention. It combined practical ideas of others with many of its own to produce a system that was cost-effective, user friendly, and easy to install, operate, maintain, and support. The Tenet 210 was intended to be an in-house system that did not require an army of systems engineers to support it and its users.
