How we started
In October 2014, an internal research project was started. The research project looked into how we could leverage extensive experience in building software for the manufacturing sector together with the emerging trends at that time, namely; big data, cloud computing, mobile, social and IoT. The team and project evolved quickly. By May 2016 the project had delivered a working product to its first customer. innius was born. Since then, innius has been in a state of continual improvement and development.
How we plan to continue
innius already is a finished product and is being used in industry. But we know that we can develop this technology much further still, and that’s what we are working on right now. One of the founding principles behind innius was that it should be developed along the lines of Domain Driven Design. That means that the domain we are designing for, industrial machinery, is the leading factor in what innius is and in which direction it goes. As the industry moves to adopt this type of new technology the domain itself will evolve in both its language and needs, and so the cycle of development continues.
As a team we are small enough to work efficiently and collaborate closely, but large enough to have the required expertise and for everyone to have a healthy work / life balance. Structurally we are quite flat and we use the scrum agile methodology, working on cycles of two week sprints. This combined with a process of continual deployment, gives a good balance between personal freedom and accountability.
What’s in a name?
Ever wondered what our name means? Well, it derives from the phrase ‘Inside Genius’, hence: In.. ..nius. And here’s another secret we’ll let you in on, our logo is the letter ‘G for Genius’ turned 90o clockwise.
