History

Unisys was formed in September 1986 through the merger of the mainframe corporations Sperry and Burroughs, with Burroughs buying Sperry for $4.8 billion. The name was chosen after an internal competition. The merger was the largest in the computer industry at the time and made Unisys the second largest computer company, with annual revenue of $10.5 billion[4]. At the time of the merger, Unisys had approximately 120,000 employees. For other uses, see Mainframe. ... Sperry Corporation was a major American equipment and electronics company whose existence spanned more than seven decades of the twentieth century. ... William Seward Burroughs (1857-1898), US inventor William S. Burroughs (1914-1997), author and grandson of William Seward Burroughs Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950), American author of Tarzan fame The Burroughs Corporation began in 1886 as the American Arithmometer Company in St. ...


In addition to hardware, both Burroughs and Sperry had a history of working on U.S. government contracts. Unisys continues to provide hardware, software, and services to various government agencies.


Soon after the merger, the market for proprietary mainframe-class systems -- the mainstream product of Unisys and its competitors such as IBM -- began a long-term decline that continues today. In response, Unisys made the strategic decision to shift into information technology (IT) services such as systems integration, outsourcing, and related technical services, while holding onto the profitable revenue stream from maintaining its installed base of proprietary mainframe hardware and applications.


Important events in the company's history include the development of the 2200 series in 1986, including the UNISYS 2200/500 CMOS mainframe, and the Micro A in 1989, the first desktop mainframe, the UNISYS ES7000 servers in 2000, and the Unisys blueprinting method of visualizing business rules and workflow in 2004. The UNIVAC 1100/2200 series is a series of compatible 36-bit computer systems, beginning with the UNIVAC 1107 in 1962, initially made by Sperry Rand. ... For other uses, see CMOS (disambiguation). ...

In 1988 the company acquired Convergent Technologies, makers of CTOS. Convergent Technologies was a company formed by a small group of people who left Intel Corporation in 1979. ... The Convergent Technologies Operating System, also known variously as CTOS, BTOS and STARSYS, was a modular, message-passing, multi-process based operating system. ...


In March 2006, Unisys sold its Japanese distributor stake for $374 million. The sale was intended to help fund 3,600 previously announced employee layoffs, accounting for about 10% of the Unisys employee workforce at that time.


The company's slogan is: Unisys. Imagine it. Done.

Unisys was the target of "Operation Ill Wind", a major corruption investigation in the mid-to-late-1980s. A number of employees were imprisoned as a result. As part of the settlement, all Unisys employees were required to receive ethics training each year, a practice that continues today. Operation Ill Wind was a three-year investigation launched in 1986 by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation into corruption by U.S. government and military officials and defense contractors. ...


In 2003 and 2004, Unisys retained influential lobbyist Jack Abramoff, paying his firm $640,000 for his services in those two years.

[6] The lobbying activities of Abramoff and his associates are now the subject of a large federal investigation.
