About Electric Software, Inc.
Creator of GLOWCODE
Electric Software was founded in 1982. For more than thirty years, Electric Software has envisioned and created next-generation, award-winning software products that serve users well. Electric Software has been led throughout its history by founding software developer, Milton Taam. Our flagship product since 1997 is GlowCode, the performance toolset for Windows software developers.
Electric Software is known in the software industry as a nimble, far-sighted innovator:
- Electric Software created the first integrated office software product for the IBM-PC which included word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and communications terminals.
- Electric Software invented the fastest instrumenting performance profiler, which no others have matched in speed and accuracy.
- Electric Software created early tools uniquely suited to internet package-free licensing and evaluation.
Products developed by Electric Software include:
ElectricDesk was the first integrated office software product which included word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and communications terminals, for the IBM-PC. ElectricDesk was launched commercially in 1983, years before Microsoft Office (1990) and its predecessor Microsoft Works (1986). ElectricDesk boasted window views, years before the existence of the Microsoft Windows operating system.
More than 500,000 copies of ElectricDesk, later named
AlphaWorks, were sold, many as OEM sales to Epson, IBM, PackardBell, and others. The product received numerous industry awards, including PC Magazine's Editor's Choice. In 1990, Lotus Software acquired the exclusive rights to ElectricDesk and AlphaWorks and marketed the product as LotusWorks.
ReportStyler was a Windows product that allows a user to easily and dramatically improve the presentation of legacy data base reports by adding fonts and graphics. Software Magazine named it Product of the Year in 1994.
GlowCode is our real-time performance and memory profiler for C++, C# and .NET Windows applications built with native and managed code. GlowCode isolates performance bottlenecks, detects memory leaks and resource overconsumption, profiles and traces program execution, while the diagnosed program runs. In managed code GlowCode also isolates boxing errors, identifies excessive resource usage, and finds hyperactive and loitering objects.
GlowCode's unrivaled speed and accuracy empower programmers to isolate and correct errors early and often during product development. GlowCode fosters a proactive software development environment, building a solid foundation of clean code, and averting costly late-stage crises.
