LEO Computers were a series of machines designed, developed, and manufactured for business applications between 1947–1968 by the British catering firm J. Lyons & Co. and its subsidiary LEO Computers Limited.

The presentation takes the LEO Computers as a case study for understanding the emergence of business computing, aiming to analyse both how the introduction of computers affected commercial enterprises and how computer design changed because of the new requirements of business data processing.
