The following events occurred in April 1964.
The bit (a portmanteau of binary digit) is a basic unit of information used in computing and digital communications.
Blaauw is a Dutch surname.
Bram Jan Loopstra (1925 – 1979) was a Dutch computing pioneer who worked at the Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam and then at Electrologica with Adriaan van Wijngaarden, Carel S. Scholten and Gerrit Blaauw.
The byte is a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits, representing a binary number.
Byte addressing refers to hardware architectures which support accessing individual bytes of data rather than only larger units called words, which would be word-addressable.
Carel S. Scholten (Amsterdam, 1925 – 2009) was a physicist and a pioneer of computing.
The Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (abbr. CWI; English: "National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science") is a research center in the field of mathematics and theoretical computer science.
In computer engineering, computer architecture is a set of rules and methods that describe the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems.
The Computer Pioneer Award was established in 1981 by the Board of Governors of the IEEE Computer Society to recognize and honor the vision of those people whose efforts resulted in the creation and continued vitality of the computer industry.
The following is a list of notable deaths in March 2018.
Dynamic Enterprise Architecture (DYA) is an enterprise architecture framework developed by the consulting company Sogeti.
Gerrit is a Dutch male name meaning "brave with the spear", the Dutch and Frisian form of Gerard.
Howard Hathaway Aiken (March 8, 1900 – March 14, 1973) was an American physicist and a pioneer in computing, being the original conceptual designer behind IBM's Harvard Mark I computer.
The IBM 8000 series was a proposed transistor-based successor to the IBM 7000 series.
CP-40 was a research precursor to CP-67, which in turn was part of IBM's then-revolutionary CP-67/CMS – a virtual machine/virtual memory time-sharing operating system for the IBM System/360 Model 67, and the parent of IBM's VM family.
The IBM System/360 (S/360) is a family of mainframe computer systems that was announced by IBM on April 7, 1964, and delivered between 1965 and 1978.

This is a list of the origins of computer-related terms or terms used in the computing world (i.e., a list of computer term etymologies).
This is a list of important publications in computer science, organized by field.
The Open Infrastructure Architecture method, or OIAm, is an open standard for the application of architecture to infrastructure.
This article presents a timeline of binary prefixes used to name memory units, in comparison of decimal and binary prefixes for measurement of information and computer storage.
