Gil Simpson and Peter Hoskins formed Future Systems Limited to develop the LINC 4th-gen language development and run time product. It ran on Burroughs mainframe computers in over 4000 organisations.
After a couple of years in development, JADE Beta comes to completion, and JADE officially launches with its first customer.
JADE 3.3 is released as a complete product. It has its own language, multi-user development environment, object-oriented database engine, and distributed run time environment.
JadeCare Systems Manager (JSM) product deployed into production. JADE Enabling Transition (JET) is also released, which converts LINC-based systems into JADE.
Seeing the growing value of JADE in its own core banking system, Skipton Building Society became the major shareholder of Jade Software Corporation.
To celebrate JADE's 20th anniversary, alongside a few tunes and bottles of bubbly, JADE 2016 was launched.
Continued investment in JADE saw an impressive launch of JADE 2018, with an exciting roadmap of features, functionality, support, and growth.
Not only did 2020 see some businesses containerise JADE, we also launched JADE 2020 - even amidst the impact COVID-19.
We're busy planning for a more innovative, flexible, and faster JADE 2022, plus helping our partners, customers, and developer community succeed. Watch this space!
