The secret to our success has been to continually innovate and evolve our software as new, disruptive technologies and approaches are employed by IT organizations to enable the business to compete and grow.  Here’s a brief recap of our story, from our founding legacy as the world’s most popular and widely used mainframe sorting software to today’s data integration solutions that provide a smarter way to maximize the value of Big Data.

Rethinking the economics of data since 1968

In the early days of mainframe computing, systems required huge monetary investments, specialized expertise to operate and a large amount of time to perform even the simplest functions. In 1968, seven recent graduates of New York University and Columbia University forged a partnership to find a better, smarter way to process data. They were determined to develop a software solution that increased mainframe performance while reducing operational costs.


Starting business as Whitlow Computer Systems, the seven partners spent years perfecting a series of algorithms that streamlined mainframe sorting, used less resources, adapted to specific environmental variables and scaled to meet the demands of growing data volumes. In time, the team at Whitlow developed software that vastly outperformed all other sorting solutions and earned their first patents. In late 1971, these patented algorithms became the basis of the first version of their solution. They called it “SyncSort.”
