It was 2012 when our founder and CEO Bramh Gupta was running middleware for telecom companies. He was managing critical business processes necessary for telecommunication business operations. This included cellular device activation and provisioning, where more than twenty-five systems would interact in less than 3 minutes to light up a cellular device on a network and create all the needed artifacts across telecom systems to onboard new customers. This was an operation of a massive scale when you think about the tens of millions of customers for a telecom company.
With the adoption of Cloud, SaaS applications, and IoT into mainstream technology, it became clear to our founding team that the existing integration platforms, as well as the middleware technologies, would not fit the coming world. No SaaS or cloud application provider would code to or provide interfaces in proprietary APIs of the likes of TIBCO or IBM.
“What the world really needed was a middleware that had no proprietary APIs or was API less, but could integrate with any of the hundreds of standard device and application protocols, or APIs, with conversion taken care of in the middleware itself.” – Bramh Gupta, CEO
RoboMQ was born with this idea. Fred Yatzeck, who had been working alongside Bramh in his telecom days, formally joined to create the founding team and start shaping this dream into a reality.
RoboMQ adopted containerization technologies and microservices early on. We provide a microservices based integration framework, including a visual business process designer for microservices. This passion drove us to run the core platform itself as docker containers.
Another problem with the existing middleware technologies is the hub and spoke architecture that often fails at the center. RoboMQ solved this problem by creating a federated and distributed messaging fabric or a mesh, “Hybrid Messaging Cloud”, that can run on the cloud, on-premise, or even on IoT gateways and single board computers (SBCs).
The result is a highly decoupled and distributed integration platform that treats devices, IoT gateways, SaaS applications and enterprise systems all as “first class citizens”. This allows you to build business workflows across clouds and networks to save cost, or create new revenue generation opportunities.
