EBIMS™ was conceptualized by Mr. Sachin Agrawal in early 2001. Let’s hear it in his own words:
“In my early years of technology management, design and support of technology infrastructures for various small to mid-sized organizations, I was often entrusted to manage ‘everything’ in Technology. Well, when you talk about ‘everything’ in Technology, it usually goes beyond technology and quickly starts becoming more of a business unit which needs to be managed as a business. As with any other business unit, the ultimate delivery an Executive should expect of Technology is, complete alignment to business goals through the use of efficient systems. This is when, the discussions pertaining to Internet Service Providers (voice/data carriers), in-house networks, SaaS (Software as a Service) Development, IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), Software Applications, ‘build’ versus ‘buy’ etc. start becoming more relevant.
What I realized quickly, was a lack of a cost effective management system for small to mid-sized organizations. The solutions that I considered, either required Band-Aids or couldn’t be procured without shelling out in the upper thousands of dollars. As a result, I ended up writing processes for management and using stove-piped systems. It worked but as expected, quickly started becoming a management nightmare. Finally, Enterprise Business Information Management System was born.
Since project inception, there has been over 50,000 man hours spent in the project, multiple version releases and a constant addition of new modules to expand its offerings to support every unit an Enterprise. EBIMS™ is undergoing an aggressive development plan with new feature releases frequently and my goal is to allow our product users an “Enterprise class system at a lowered cost of ownership.”
