Meaning – The term OfficeVision Series refers to IBM’s family of office application programs that can be used for office tasks such as creating, sending, receiving, and filing electronic mail.
OfficeVision was an IBM proprietary office support application that primarily ran on IBM’s VM operating system and its user interface CMS.
Other platform versions were available, notably OV/MVS and OV/400. OfficeVision provided e-mail, shared calendars, and shared document storage and management, and it provides the ability to integrate word processing applications such as Displaywrite/370 and/or the Document Composition Facility (DCF/SCRIPT). IBM introduced OfficeVision in their May 1989 announcement, followed by several other key releases later.
Example of usage – “IBM discontinued support of OfficeVision/VM as of October 6, 2003. IBM recommended that its OfficeVision/VM customers migrate to Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino environments, and IBM offered migration tools and services to assist.”
