Name: Applied Data Research, Inc. (ADR)
Sector: Systems and Utilities Software

    Founded in Princeton, NJ in 1959 as a contract programming firm by a group of Univac programmers, ADR initially contracted to provide systems software for computer manufacturers such as RCA and Honeywell. ADR released its first software product, AUTOFLOW, a program which produced program flowcharts, in 1965 and became one of the first software companies to set up a product-oriented marketing and support organization. One of ADR's founders, Martin A. Goetz, received the first patent issued on a software product in 1968. Other software products sold by ADR were The Librarian, MetaCOBOL, ROSCOE and VOLLIE.
