fraXses History

The fraXses Framework was originally created by Intenda UK Limited, which is part of the Intenda Group of Companies, founded in January 2001. Since January 2015, fraXses Limited has been spun off to enable more rapid growth and to create its own brand, while Intenda UK retains equity interest.

“We are a metadata driven company in every way, we think, design, solve and develop with a metadata approach.  We provide the ‘glue’ to turn open source and proprietary tools into solutions which work for the enterprise.”

fraXses was born out of 20 years of frustration in the Business Intelligence market, where the ever-increasing data volumes, variety in data sources, complexity and advances in technology have required a different approach to data and transactional systems.

Not only did we want to deliver a solution that could manage the demands of today, but would also span and embrace the technology choices of the customer without having to change methodology, thus embracing what is already there.

“Since 2001 we have created products used by millions of people.  We have partnered with great brands, government, business and industry.  Our clients are not just a collection of logos, they represent countless hours and dedication to the partnerships we cherish.”

fraXses will happily compete with any of the new Big Data solutions, in proof of concepts and comparison tests, on client sites, using commodity hardware and the client’s data.

We offer the big data challenge, as we are confident that the fraXses solution will outperform competing point solutions. but just as importantly fraXses can embrace them and use their capabilities as either a data source for the fraXses system or as a visualisation engine at the other end.
