At the center is Mathematica: our ever-advancing core product that launched modern technical computing and has now become the world’s most powerful global computation system. With millions of dedicated users throughout the technical and educational communities, Mathematica represents a unique blend of major research breakthroughs, outstanding user-oriented design, and world-class software engineering.
The rise of computation has been a major world theme for the past fifty years. Our goal is to provide the framework to let computation achieve its full potential in the decades to come: to make it possible to compute whatever can be computed, whenever and wherever it is needed, and to make accessible the full frontiers of the computational universe.
We have built our company to focus on long-term goals while consistently delivering the best possible products and services on an ongoing basis. Led by CEO Stephen Wolfram, we have assembled over the past two decades a team of remarkable breadth and depth, continually attracting outstanding new talent to our uniquely productive intellectual environment.
As intellectual pioneers, our company maintains a deep commitment to communication and education. Not only are our products used at colleges and universities throughout the world, but we have also developed the world’s largest free network of technical information websites, including MathWorld—the #1 website devoted to mathematics—as well as our latest major resources, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Demonstrations Project.
