How It All Began
In the early 2015, IntroPro Ventures founders Mykhailo Dianov and Igor Dianov set out to develop a new concept of advanced & scalable enterprise application architecture blueprints by separating communication and application concerns and connecting client side to the server side services in a clean, controlled & secured manner.
In his previous ventures as a CTO of large software services companies such as Luxoft and IntroPro, Mykhailo Dianov had a long and successful experience delivering technology solutions and sophisticated applications for big companies like AT&T, Boeing, Harman and others using middleware software for different projects such Oracle Fusion, TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM, IBM Integration Server. While working with these technologies, he has found that such platforms have two major drawbacks:
- High costs of entry by the customer’s need to buy expensive licences before they start the development of even trial applications
- The need to have onboard the customer’s team a big number of engineers with new and costly skills, sometimes it was very hard to staff the new project
As the software development market has changed dramatically in the favour of open-source software, after building a prototype in Igor Dianov’s basement den in early 2016, the entrepreneurs decided the concept had legs – literally. In the Spring of 2016, IntroPro Ventures Inc. was established with an office in Richmond BC, Canada to develop and market an open-sourced business application development platform that is called YouBPM today.
With Alfresco Company being a innovative market leader in Business Process Automation and Content Management services, IntroPro Ventures became an Alfresco Customer using their Process Services in March 2015. As a result, of close collaboration between Alfresco and IntroPro Ventures in the BPM technology space, we joined Alfresco Partner network as a Technology Partner of Alfresco in May 2017 and started collaborating with Activiti7 Community Development Team in August 2017 to help build better and bigger Activiti7 BPM in open source project space.
