Introducing Samir Ghosh, CEO of Pramati’s Cloud Platform

By now, hopefully, you’ve seen the news that WaveMaker has a new home with Pramati. This is a good move for the WaveMaker community, as it puts the WaveMaker open source project in the hands of a a company with a long history of support for both Java and open source projects.

Pramati has over 600 Java developers and offices in Silicon Valley and India. They have over 15 years building Java technology and SaaS applications, including active participation in the Java Community Process and Java standards ranging from EJB to JMS.

I led the effort from the VMware side to find a new home for WaveMaker and have been helping Pramati with their acquisition. I am on the advisory board for Pramati, so my relationship with WaveMaker will continue. I am also happy to announce that WaveMaker’s head of sales, Michael Harper, has joined Pramati to lead their cloud platform sales and business development.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce, Samir Ghosh, CEO of Pramati’s cloud platform division and a personal friend of mine. Under Pramati and Samir’s team, I am very optimistic about the future vision of WaveMaker.

    Thanks Chris!

    Greetings Wavemaker Community!

    On behalf of Pramati, I’d like to introduce ourselves. We are delighted to take over the responsibility for the impressive WaveMaker technology and its community from VWware and highly value your participation and engagement. We will continue to operate WaveMaker as an open source community and grow it further.

    Please allow me to tell you a bit more about us. Pramati was founded in 1998 when we built one of the earliest Java-based app servers that we commercialized with several large global clients. We have actively participated in several Java Community Process (JCP) expert groups.

    Throughout our history, we have been known for two things: (1) our early and deep association with the Java community; and (2) our heritage in building enterprise-class applications. We were also among the earliest companies to develop applications for the cloud. Our early experience with AWS allowed us to cloud-optimize our app server and build a scalable, enterprise class environment in the cloud. We used this to launch two of our own companies, SocialTwist, an enterprise-class social marketing platform, and Qontext, an enterprise social collaboration platform (acquired by Autodesk in 2012). We now seek to commercialize this cloud deployment platform.

    Today, we have a team of about 600+ qualified and skilled engineers engaged in Java-based (and other platforms) development for global clients and for our own companies.

    We have plans for including WaveMaker into our future cloud offering and will be ready to discuss more of this with you in the weeks to come. Thank you for your support of WaveMaker and you can count on the same from us.

    Warm regards,
    Samir Ghosh
