|Thanos was founded by Nico Plat in 2016. Nico is a computer scientist by education. He studied at Delft University of Technology and received his Phd. from the same institution. During his studies he specialized in the application of formal methods for software development, which has remained one of his interests. After his doctoral studies he started working for IT services provider Capgemini. There he further developed his capabilities, not only his soft skills but he also became an expert in enterprise and information architecture. He also gained thorough knowledge of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and mobility. In 2000 he went to work for a smaller IT services company, from 2009 until the end of 2015 as technical director. Thanos was created out of a desire for a more direct involvement and commitment to customers.
