Once upon a time there was a group of people who wanted to create the next generation Business Intelligence software for the Banking industry. We theorized that there is a lot of data being accumulated and wasted by Core Banking systems which could be used to drive profit enhancing decision making.Â
We set out to create a technology platform that would be cheap to buy, easy to install, maintain and enhance. The outcome of this technologically charged, creative attempt was Vyasa â€“ A Web 2.0 J2EE platform weaving together various BI technologies such as OLAP, Search, Reporting, Scorecards, and Analytics etc. Â
We made business plans claiming to sell this technology to banks across the world that were looking to reduce the cost and complexity of Business Intelligence implementation projects. Â We spent iteration after iteration of development effort in perfecting the platform, integrating it with workflow and OLTP systems.Â
Vyasa was showcased in the first edition of Proto.in, a proud moment for the team that spent a good part of a year developing it. Proto.in, January 2007 happened to be a turning point for the young company that was i-Create. Several conversations with a number of people across various stages of the startup experience triggered action on a thought that had lingered for a while, but, never had come to the forefront till then. We need to sell this thing!Â
Experienced hands at entrepreneurship (we were new to it then) would know that a whole new organizational architecture emerges when the primary goal of an organization changes from building a product to selling a product.Â We called this Business Oriented Architecture.
