Alain holds a math degree of the prestigious Ecole Normale Supérieure of Cachan (France), where he also taught. He also owns a postgraduate degree in computer science from the University of Paris VI.
In 1985, Alain created a very successful software program which helped accountants make financial decisions through language generation and the management of business rules.
