Its headquarters is in the state of Virginal, but it has locations in over 70 countries. Over 90,000 employees help the CSC to provide information technology and professional services to such entities as the local, state, and U.S. federal government. They also provide services to non-U.S. government agencies.
Like other corporations, the Computer Sciences Corporation has a small and humble beginning. CSC was developed in Los Angeles in April of 1959. Founded by Roy Nutt and Fletcher John, the Computer Sciences Corporation was originally created to provide programming tools. Such tools included the compiler and assembling software.
As time progressed CSC grew and expanded the services that it provided. By the 1960s CSC was providing software writing services to major companies such as Honeywell, which helped to continue to gain momentum in the software field. Their expertise allowed them to lock in their first contract with NASA.
The increase of clientele and services offered to allow the Computer Science Corporation to become the largest software company located in the United States by the year 1963. They also were noted as being the first software company to be on the American Stock Exchange. The 60s continued to be a great decade for CSC as they were expanded operations to other countries such as the UK, Canada, Spain, Brazil, the Netherlands, and even India.
By the 1970s and 80s the Computer Science Corporation would continue to grow and acquire contracts from different companies. No longer confined to servicing companies in the United States; CSC obtained contracts for Europe and Australia, where they provided services to the Finance and Defense industry.
Continual expansion has allowed CSC to be a Fortune 500 company since the year 1995. In 2012, CSC reached 162 on the list.
