    (Burroughs, Univac, NCR, Control Data and Honeywell) IBM’s competitors after RCA and GE got out of the computer business.


  6. The group of mainframe computer competitors to IBM in the 1970s became known as the BUNCH: Burroughs, UNIVAC, NCR, Control Data Corporation, and Honeywell. These companies were grouped together because the market share of IBM was much higher than all of its competitors put together
