Name: Boole & Babbage
Sector: Systems and Utilities Software

Description
    Boole and Babbage was founded by David Katch and Kenneth Kolence in Palo Alto, CA in May 1967 as K & K Associates, consultants in system design methodology. Within a few months, they saw a potential for software products that measured the efficiency of program execution and computer utilization and sought venture capital funding to develop their first software products PPE (Problem Program Evaluator) and CUE (Configuration Utilization Evaluator). The company changed its name to Boole & Babbage in October 1967 and was the first systems software house in Silicon Valley to receive venture capital funding.
