Your data

Your data has a problem — SaaS.  As Onymos Founder Shiva Nathan puts it, “[SaaS companies] rent you software with their right hand and take your data with their left.” Just ask Zoom (actually, they would probably prefer you don’t). When Stack Diary broke the news about Zoom’s recently updated Terms of Service the story quickly […]

Build vs buy

“Build the innovation. Buy the commodities.” A classic evolution of maturing industries and markets is the rise of commoditization within the value chain. If there is limited value in building the foundation, then it’s more cost-effective to buy it from an optimized supplier and move on to building higher-level value. Homebuilders don’t make kitchen cabinets. […]

Trust Onymos

It’s getting harder and harder to trust all of the software we use to build our software. There’s the shadow IT in enterprises and the malicious code hiding in open source. Providers deprecate critical services and “security incidents” are a regular occurence. Cloud costs are rising and vendor lock-in is keeping everyone stuck in place. […]

Onymos no-data architecture

One of the advantages of using Onymos isn’t something we have, it’s something we don’t — your data.  Most software platforms rely on an intermediary server. There are several reasons for this, from interim data manipulation to ‘lazy’ development to a desire to stay ‘in between’ you and your (and your customer’s) data.  But at […]

Success with IoT

A few years ago, Cisco surveyed tech executives and learned things weren’t going so hot with their IoT initiatives. 75% of them failed. Yeah. That’s not a typo. A more recent report by Beecham Research produced similar results. 18% of the 25,000 IoT adopters surveyed said their projects were completely unsuccessful and another 40% said they were just mostly unsuccessful.  Only 12% […]

Onymos and Ionic

The Ionic Framework is a wonderful and wildly popular open-source UI toolkit for building performant, high-quality apps using web technologies. Onymos Features-as-a-Service, available for Ionic, is a suite of foundational app features for building complex enterprise apps using standard web tools. They sound about the same, causing people to sometimes ask, “We are using/considering the […]


DeveloperWeek is the world’s largest developer and engineering expo, covering everything from APIs and microservices to AI and IoT. That’s why we’re attending!  “Developers rule the world, and their capital is the SF Bay Area,” said Onymos Founder and CEO Shiva Nathan, “If you are in a tech career, running a tech company, or just passionate […]

Learning with Onymos

I’m currently an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, going into my sophomore year. I joined Onymos as an intern this past August. I had some prior experience using Python and Java but not much experience with web and mobile development technologies. Working at Onymos gave me a better understanding of the challenges facing […]

A functionality library

It turns out, developers really hate making buttons. Just ask Material UI (MUI), Ant Design, Tailwind CSS, Ionic, Bootstrap, or any of the other (and there are a lot of) successful UI component libraries out there. Each of them offers (at minimum) dozens of pre-designed core UI elements — like buttons.  Objectively, it’s much harder to […]
