Q&A was a flat file database system produced by Symantec during the 90's, it was very easy to use and despite being of a flat file structure could fulfill many uses by performing lookups. One of it's features that I have not seen anywhere since was the ability to enter queries in plain English, for example: 'show me the sales staff who have met their targets for the first quarter of 1999, sort by percentage over target'
I used Q&A extensively in the 90's while I was employed at GEC Sensors, I utilised it to replace a very expensive mainframe failure reporting system (charged by the CPU second), I also used it to create a VCRM (Verification Cross Reference Matrix) for use on the Merlin Helicoptor project for the Royal Navy.
