Leading information technology company Unisys Corporation (UIS - Analyst Report) has successfully launched a new version of the flagship MCP (Master Control Program) operating environment and a high-availability option for the ClearPath Libra 4200 system. The launches are likely to augment the mission-critical computing capabilities of its ClearPath Libra servers.

The MCP is the proprietary operating system of Unisys that offers robust scalability, data integrity and security for ultra-high-volume transaction processing capabilities. This integrated operating environment for ClearPath Servers provides the software needed to operate an enterprise-class server, allocates system resources, manages files and data, and provides a library of useful subroutines.

The new ClearPath MCP operating environment enables users to safely access ClearPath applications through mobile devices and it secures data transfer by enhanced protection against security breaches. On the other hand, the high-availability option for ClearPath Libra 4200 system strengthens failover protection in high-volume transaction environments.

Based in Blue Bell, Pa, Unisys specializes in helping clients to secure their operations, increase efficiency and utilize their data centers. The company also enhances support to their end users and constituents, and modernizes their enterprise applications. The primary markets that Unisys serves include financial services, communication and transportation, and commercial and public sector, including the U.S. federal government.

Unisys has two operating segments – Services and Technology. System integration, outsourcing, infrastructure services, consulting, and core maintenance together constitute the Services segment, while enterprise class servers and specialized technologies are included in the Technology segment. Though hardware sales and maintenance have made the largest contribution to revenue in the past, Unisys has been transforming itself lately into a services company so that the Services segment can generate above 85% of the company’s revenues.

Unisys currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other companies in the industry worth reckoning include Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD - Analyst Report), Diodes Incorporated (DIOD - Snapshot Report) and Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDTI - Snapshot Report), each carrying a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
