Two young computer analysts working in the aerospace industry saw the opportunity for a new kind of business. They set out to provide computer manufacturers with complex programs known as assemblers, compilers and operating systems, to make it easier to use the computers, thereby expanding the potential markets for the products. Roy Nutt was a stellar programmer, who had developed the first widely accepted assembly program and was a member of the small IBM team that developed Fortran. Fletcher Jones, a marketing whiz, came from North American Aviation Corp., where he had managed a divisional computer center.
In April 1959, four decades of pioneering, exploration and innovation got off the ground when Nutt and Jones pooled $100 to start a company that they named Computer Sciences Corporation. With Nutt providing the technical direction and Jones handling the marketing, the young company prospered, quickly gaining a reputation for innovative design and high-quality work. Through work for numerous computer manufacturers and other large computer users, CSC developed more systems software than any other computer services company in the industry.
The company would be listed on the NYSE in 1968.
