HORIZON Financial Software Corporation, a company that was formed in 1987 through a management buyout of the financial software division of branch automation specialist, Systeme Corporation. FIS’s predecessor company Systematics acquired HORIZON in July of 1990, two months after Systematics itself had been acquired by Alltel Information Services.

HORIZON was developed utilizing the RPG-IV programming language and runs on IBM’s Power Systems mid-range hardware. The IBM Power Systems is a time-tested hardware platform with more than 30 years of success supporting businesses around the world and has been updated over time to support current technologies including server virtualization (allowing other operating languages to be run in addition to the platform’s native operating system).
