IBM Personal Decision Series Data Edition 1.0

IBM Data is a high-end flat-file database management system targeted at large corporate users. It is part of the Personal Decision Series family, and reportedly a required prerequisite for other modules or "editions".

The IBM Personal Decision Series is notable as being the first integrated office suite for the IBM PC designed and written entirely by IBM.

It was intended to compete against integrated office suites such as Lotus Symphony and Framework. It also competed against IBM's own lower-end "Assistant Series".

Other members in the Personal Decision Series include: Plans + Edition, Plans Edition, Word Edition, Reports+ Edition, and Graphs Edition.

Installation instructions

Note: Installation looks for BASICA. For non IBM equipment, I recommend the version included with Compaq's MS-DOS 3.x.
