We are a transnational team of innovators dismantling the boundaries of inter-software communication. Our world is a place where systems and applications can communicate in one universal language. A world in which data is available at all times, irrespective of its origin or destination, form or purpose.

We are striving to build a universe enabling developers to seamlessly integrate data from any source to provide ultimate insight to end users.

For most, it’s just a distant vision; yet for us, it’s our everyday reality enabled by our breakthrough solutions to the greatest challenges – with the goal to aid machines in achieving their ultimate purpose: help mankind do the impossible.

What we propose is simplicity. We offer an easily extensible and versatile integration platform for all your integration challenges, and powerful pre-assembled products utilizing its capabilities. With us, you can easily and affordably speed up building of solutions consuming data from various sources.
