ThoughtWorks, Inc. the Chicago-based transnational professional services firm specializing in application development and systems integration announced today that Founder and Chairman Neville Roy Singham moderated a dynamic panel at the FORTUNE Brainstorm: TECH event this week in California.
Additional speakers on Singham's panel include Grady Booch, Chief Scientist at IBM Rational; David Heinemeier Hansson, Partner at 37signals; and Charles Simonyi, President and CEO of Intentional Software Corp.
At the core of the discussion, Singham challenged panelists and conference members to prove that innovation is not dead in IT. "CEO's outside of our industry feel software developers are irrelevant to business innovation; as passionate developers focused on infusing the benefits software can provide into daily interactions, our panel will discuss how code can truly change the future," said Singham.
Singham is best known for creating ThoughtWorks, which has grown to a 1,000-person software consultancy with teams around the world. Clients include Siemens, CAT Financial, major banks and leading technology and media companies.
ThoughtWorks' chief scientist, Martin Fowler, helped create the Agile movement, which aims to speed code-writing with a process of multiple iterations. "A huge percentage of the value created in society over the next 25 years will come from software," Singham added.
