Our Name

Évariste Galois (pronounced GAL-wah, 1811-1832) possessed a remarkable genius for mathematics. Among his many contributions, Galois founded abstract algebra and group theory, which are fundamental to computer science, physics, coding theory, and cryptography. Our approach to solving challenging software problems is reflective of Galois’ way of solving mathematical problems. We employ processes that rework clients’ software problems to develop an array of possible solutions not traditionally available via other methods. Galois’ contributions are even more remarkable in light of the fact that many were captured as hastily scribbled notes on the eve of his untimely death in a duel.
