Hi Yoshino,

It's "iMatix" without an "r" :-)

I'm not sure this question should be on zeromq-dev but I'll try to
answer it anyhow.

We built ZeroMQ, which I'd claim is a large-scale architecture, even
if the product is mostly a community of projects rather than one

We designed AMQP in 2004-6, built OpenAMQ and used that to migrate
JPMorganChase's largest trading system off an old messaging system.
The system had many thousands of users over four continents.

We co-founded Wikidot, which has a million users. I was CEO of that
company for several years and built up its community.

Before that, we did mainly the architecture and technical
infrastructure for large business / industrial applications:
automating cement factories in Belgium, electronic payment systems in
Africa, tour operator systems in Europe.

Obviously as a small firm we're always working with others, in a
technical infrastructure / architect role. The best model is where we
help a company build up its internal expertise, teams, and knowledge,
and then hand over the project to them, with service over some period
of time.
