WELCOME

Left Quote

Welcome to our 25 years of CAST page. 25 years ago, I could not imagine we would be one day on 3 continents and 7 countries, promoting this initially simple – but not that easy to deliver – idea to make the invisible visible. At CAST, we believe in enacting change and shifting the industry. We want to challenge the status quo and leave things better than where we found them. We’re passionate about working smarter, not just harder.

I’m extremely proud of our global team. You will not find better people in the technology industry, and these days that’s really saying something! Thank you to our loyal customers, partners, shareholders and employees who had faith in the CAST mission from the beginning – you are a big part of why we are here today.

I hope you enjoy this tribute to CAST, our evolution and our philosophy. Thank you for a great 25 years, and here’s to 25 more!

- Vincent Delaroche

THEN VS NOW

which-language-to-code-1985

C++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs as a language to allow more complex programs. It enhanced and combined features from other existing languages of its time. According to Stroustrup, he wanted “to make programming more enjoyable for the serious programmer.”

which-language-to-code-2016

In 2016, more programmers choose SQL – probably not for the joy it brings, but because it’s now the standard in managing database communications. SQL manipulates and tracks information, helping us make sense of our ever increasing volumes of data.

portable-digital-games-1989

With the release of Game Boy, which sold over 100 million units in its 20 year span, we had portable video games to play on-the-go. It came with the always popular Tetris, and so began the era of spending countless hours dazed by a handheld device.

Virtual Reality takes “dazed” to another dimension and challenges us to distinguish what and where is “real”. The Oculus Rift headset, developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, was released in March 2016. How will portable VR work for people on the go?

digital-connectivity-1990

The first version of the WorldWideWeb was introduced in 1990 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee. His vision: to link and connect any website and the people who create them. In a spectacular gesture of success, Sir Berners-Lee tweeted “this is for everyone” to some 900 million people during the 2012 Olympics.

digital-connectivity-2016

Browsing went mobile in 2009. Today’s high-speed mobile networks bring connectivity and information to more people worldwide. Just 25 years since the start of the “www”, there’s no need to plug in at home or office. We can share, discover, work and learn wherever we are.

ai-fascination-and-fear-1992

Visually-fluid special effects made this movie a hit as well as the most expensive of its time. Terminator 2’s state-of-the-art visual effects and more realistic cyborgs brought Artificial Intelligence to life and left people feeling uneasy about AI and its potential threats to human civilization.

ai-fascination-and-fear-2016

No longer just a theme for sci-fi movies, the potential dangers of AI are now a real and hot topic among prominent scientists and technology leaders. Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk among others have urged caution in advancing the realm of Artificial Intelligence.
