"CA IDMS Server r16.1 is a robust, high-performance solution for seamlessly incorporating mainframe assets into state-of-the-art enterprise SOA environments," said Judith Kruntorad, vice president and product line manager for CA IDMS.
"I started working in IDMS development in 1979," she says.
"In 1989 I became product owner for CA IDMS: essentially the job I've had ever since."
VP/product line manager Judy Kruntorad oversees CA's IDMS family of products, used at hundreds of high-profile organizations around the world.
After more than thirty-five years in software engineering, Judy Kruntorad relishes her work of heading up an R&D arm of CA, Inc (formerly Computer Associates, Islandia, NY), one of the largest enterprise software companies in the world.
As VP of software engineering and CA IDMS product line manager, Kruntorad oversees the company's IDMS family of products, used at hundreds of high-profile organizations around the world.
Developed in the 1960s, IDMS is a mainframe database management system.
"It's the foundation of many of our customers' most critical business applications," Kruntorad explains.
"IDMS is now also being used as the back-end database server for modern Web applications."
Fast and efficient
"The key advantages of IDMS are performance, throughput and efficient resource usage compared with competitive offerings.
IDMS uses less CPU capacity and less storage to do the same amount of work," Kruntorad says.
I like helping them to be successful and enjoy problem solving with them," Kruntorad says.
The challenge of programming
Kruntorad grew up in Omaha, NE.
Her dad was a draftsman for the City of Omaha and he encouraged her to "be curious about how things worked."
Kruntorad graduated summa cum laude from Creighton University (Omaha, NE) in 1971 with a BS in math.She earned her MSCS in 1973 from Iowa State University (Ames, IA).
At the time, she estimates, about 20 percent of CS students at the university were women.
"I switched from math to CS because I enjoyed writing programs.
I liked the challenge and the thought process required.
Software development is such a practical application of technology; you can see almost immediate results," she says.
"As a woman in this field I never felt discriminated against, but I never expected entitlement either," she says.
"My parents taught me to work hard, be goal-oriented and be curious about life and technology.
Those have been my guiding principles."
Kruntorad started work as a programmer in the defense division of Sperry Univac (St. Paul, MN).She started on a San Diego, CA-based project to develop system software for Navy computers.
Her next position was as principal investigator for a U.S. Department of Defense research project focused on database management technology.Her final job with Sperry Univac was doing development on DMS 1100, a commercial database management system.
In 1978 Kruntorad moved to Boston to work for MRI Systems Corp in technical marketing support for its System 2000, another commercial database system.MRI was acquired by Intel Corp shortly after she joined, and in 1979 she accepted a programming job at Cullinane Corp, later renamed Cullinet Software (Wellesley, MA), and started her IDMS development career.
"They can also create new SQL-defined IDMS databases," Kruntorad explains.
