Quoting Laxintl (Reply 3): EDS is Electronic Data Systems founded by Ross Perot.
CO uses EDS for a host of computer applications including reservations and flight planning.
They're actually a bit more entrenched in the organization than that. Lots of large companies, including CO, outsource some or all of the IT side of their business to a 3rd party, usually to reduce costs. CO has outsourced most things to EDS and as a result it would actually be EDS staff in many locations, not CO. This is probably a Continental facility that has been outsourced to EDS, or it's the central EDS program office for CO - either would make sense.
