Christophe Marton is a software architect and cofounder of Neotys. He started his IT career at Calendra SA, a developer of software solutions for the identity management market that was acquired by BMC software in 2005. During his six-year tenure there, he developed the skills required to create, develop, and market cutting-edge software. His work at Calendra also introduced Christophe to the performance and load testing field, for which he ultimately developed a unique vision for a next generation solution. He left Calendra to cofound Neotys and make that vision a reality with the development of NeoLoad. Key requirements learned during the days at Calendra pointed towards the need for a professional load testing tool that was thorough, powerful, easy to use, and affordable.
