Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) is an American multinational corporation that provides information technology (IT) services and professional services. Its headquarters are located in Falls Church, Virginia. CSC has 74,000 employees in over 70 countries. Its clients include commercial enterprises and the U.S. federal government, as well as state, local and non-U.S. government agencies.
In September 2009, when Xerox acquired Affiliated Computer Services, CSC became the only remaining major "hardware vendor independent" IT service provider with headquarters and major operations in the U.S.
CSC was founded in April 1959 in Los Angeles, California, by Roy Nutt and Fletcher Jones. CSC initially provided programming tools such as compiler and assembling software. In the 1960s, CSC provided software writing services to major computer manufacturers like IBM and Honeywell and secured their first contracts for the U.S. public sector with NASA (among others).
By 1963, CSC became the largest software company in the United States and the first software company to be listed on the American Stock Exchange. By the end of 1968, CSC was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and had operations in Canada, India, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy, Brazil, and the Netherlands. In the 1970s and 1980s, CSC expanded globally winning large contracts for the finance and defense industries and through acquisitions in Europe and Australia.
In May 2015, CSC announced plans to split the public sector business from its commercial and international business. On August 31, 2015, it was announced that CSC Government Services would merge with SRA International to form a new company as of the end of November 2015. In December 2015, business technology and services provider, Xchanging, agreed to be purchased by CSC.
