Indianapolis-based startup chooses Imaginary Landscape for its Django expertise.

August 1, 2014

CHICAGO – Today Imaginary Landscape announced the signing of a web development agreement with Indianapolis-based OpenObject Corporation, an industry leader in cloud delivery of IBM Software-as-a-Service products.  Under the terms of the agreement, Imaginary will assist in the design, programming and maintenance of new client portal technology.

"The OpenObject technology is impressive at tracking the real-time utilization of IBM SaaS products. This requires a sophisticated system for processing large amounts of raw data," said Brian Moloney, managing partner of Imaginary Landscape. "Our role is to take the resulting output and make it available to OpenObject clients within a secure portal. This will allow OpenObject clients the ability to analyze usage and trends and facilitate decision making."

Ben Chodroff, chief technology officer for OpenObject notes, "We began to build our client portal with Django due to the ease of use and rich capabilities. However, we needed additional expertise to meet our customer expectations. Imaginary Landscape not only provides us with Django expertise but insightful architectural, design, and implementation choices that have impressed our customers. Imaginary Landscape not only understands our current goals but is also helping us define where we should go next."
