The IBM Systems Journal joins the Company in celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of IBM Systems Engineering. In 1960, IBM created a series of new field professional positions by merging the former applied science and systems groups. Systems engineers, working in concert with marketing representatives and customer engineers, have since jointly formed the primary interface between IBM and its data processing customers. Throughout this quarter century, IBM systems engineers have offered technical marketing support with expertise in many areas including installation planning, programming, systems management, and industry specialties.
