The rest of the Charles Simonyi profile
For now, sheltered by Simonyi's wealth, Intentional Software has no target date or shipping deadline. But one of its two main customers claims to be close to deploying Intentional tools. Capgemini--a Paris-based international IT services and consulting firm that serves large enterprises and whose CTO, Andy Mulholland, is an acquaintance of Simonyi's--began working with Intentional last March and is considering using Intentional's system for projects in the European pensions business. The field's "very complex rules, intertwined with complex business domain structure," make Simonyi's approach look attractive, says Henk Kolk, Capgemini's financial-services technology officer, who is leading the firm's work with Intentional.
