<p>Database management systems (DBMSs) have played an outsized role in the history of software development and the creation and growth of the software products industry. Recognizing the major role played by these products, the <it>Annals</it> is publishing two special issues on the subject. This special issue (the first) is focused on the products, companies, and people who designed, programmed, and sold mainframe DBMS software products beginning in the 1960s and 1970s.</p>
