The IBM Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator (SSEC) was dedicated in 1948 by Thomas J. Watson at IBM's headquarters at 590 Madison Avenue in New York City. The SSEC combined the speed of electronic circuits with a storage capacity of 400,000 digits and integrated for the first time electronic speed, vast memory capacity and highly flexible and convenient programming (or sequencing) facilities.
