Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/19/2011 -- White label platforms help provide a viable and innovative path to develop solutions and products using open source. InfoAxon focuses on delivering solution platforms for knowledge management and business intelligence and plans to introduce many similar platform variants in the future. These platforms provide much needed choice, flexibility and lower acquisition cost based model to develop solutions and services leveraging open source and a faster time to market.
InfoAxon started as an outsourced product development company but quickly found its niche in creating ‘Solution Platforms’ for its customers leveraging integration of open source technologies and frameworks. Based on this niche the idea of Open Source ‘Platforming’ was born wherein various open source components and frameworks could be integrated together to create single solution stacks catering to business needs.
According to Nikhil Kapoor, CTO InfoAxon and leading its Open Source BI Practice, “With Platforming approach it is possible to implement open source more aligned to the business goals instead of driven as a technology project. Using the right system integrator partner that understands Platforming it is possible to bring together open source components in such a way that innovative software as a service models are possible within the enterprises.”
“Our successes proves that the open source model can be best leveraged to produce vertical specific solutions using open source ‘Platforming’. Today we have successfully deployed solutions for some of the leading ISVs, services providers and large organizations in diverse sectors such as International Development, Retail, Public Sector, Social Housing, Banks and Insurance. If done correctly the scope to innovate and change the rules of the game is immense” says Shubham Nagar, CEO and one of the co-founders at InfoAxon.

Most of these customers had earlier planned to go down a proprietary route which would have costed their products manifold compared to the costs based on an Open source Platforming model. Moreover this path also provided InfoAxon customers with much needed flexibility and a platform to continuously innovate without depending on a single vendor or locked technology standards.
