In a private presentation attended by Microsoft and The Mayor of Shrewsbury & Atcham, Darwin Corporation founder & CEO Mike Chatha unveiled their evolutionary business software which contains ground breaking features like a drag & drop form designer, and a live data explorer.
CEO Mike Chatha, said:
"We are delighted to bring the friends and partners together in this way, and especially honoured to have present the Mayor to officially announce our launch. The last 3 years have been a real challenge for our development team, and we are extremely proud of what our company has achieved."
"My Hosts, Ladies and Gentlemen,
As you will know today is the 200th birthday of Shropshire's most famous son, Charles Darwin. He devoted all of his life to a pioneering and relentless search for truth and understanding, and was not afraid to challenge existing ideas in pursuit of that goal.
In that same way, this small pioneering Shropshire company has challenged existing ideas; and achieved massive steps forward by creating business tools that are more flexible, more powerful, and at the same time easier to use and understand. This is by any measure a huge achievement, especially when achieved by a self-funded team who sacrificed everything to achieve their goal.
Providing businesses with software that they can entirely configure themselves could potentially save the region millions of pounds of unnecessary IT expenditure, while making our companies more competitive and providing them with greater control than ever before. The vision for the company over the next 12 months will result in better run and more profitable companies in our region, which in these challenging economic times is welcome news.
One can often tell the quality of a person by the company they keep; and in the case of Darwin they co-develop their software with Microsoft, one of the oldest and most successful software companies in the world. With Microsoft on their side I have no doubt that Darwin will achieve any goal it sets itself, and Shrewsbury & Atcham are fortunate to have them in our community.
It gives me great pleasure to be here today to officially launch this innovative and evolutionary software."
