Dr. James Martin: 1933-2013

JamesmartinAlong with many of our colleagues in the information engineering community, we have been saddened to hear of the death of the visionary IT pioneer, Dr. James Martin.

Dr. Martin is widely acknowledged as being a founding father of information engineering and computer-aided software engineering.  It is on these foundations that many of the technologies we still use regularly, are based.

He proved to be an inspiration for many Jumar employees and contractors – with with a significant number having had direct or indirect contact with James Martin Associates over the years.

Our CTO Doug Michael, who worked for JMA (where he was involved in developing tools and processes to support the Information Engineering methodology) describes him as “a visionary and probably the best presenter I’ve ever seen”.

The Oxford Martin School, which he founded, describe him as an “inspiration to millions”.
