CSC was founded in April 1959 by Roy Nutt, Fletcher Jones and Bob Patrick. Their goal was to provide programming tools such as assemblers and compilers. Jones, who ran the business and its marketing, obtained a contract from Honeywell that made the business profitable and respected within the industry. Within four years of its founding, CSC became the largest software company in the United States and took the business public with an IPO listed on the American Stock Exchange. By the end of the 1960s, CSC was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and had operations in Canada, India, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Brazil, and the Netherlands.
Since its beginnings in 1959, company headquarters had been in California. On 30 January 2008 the company announced that it would move its corporate headquarters from El Segundo to Falls Church, Virginia.
